100th Post Spectacular and Giveaway

Has it really been 100 posts already?

Well, I've had this blog for 2 1/2 years now, so maybe it's overdue.

I did start my first quilt 2 1/2 years ago, and it has opened me up to a wonderful hobby, and surprisingly, a lot of new friends. I'm not quite sure what I did before the Portland Modern Quilt Guild started, but I'm very grateful that it did. I've meet a lot of new people, gotten a thousand ideas, and found a hobby that comes with a built in community and a rich history.

Look at me, getting all weepy over some bits of fabric sewn together!

I've never done a giveaway before, but it seems like a good thing to do to mark the occasion. I've got to admit, I'm a little worried that no one will enter, but I'm going to cross my fingers and hope for the best!

I'm giving away two things, and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. If you are a no-reply blogger, just let me know how to contact you! (If you are in the Portland Modern Quilt Guild though, I can just catch up with you at the next meeting)

The giveaway is open to everyone, from anywhere. It will be open until May 15th, 2011, 12:00pm PST.

So, without further ado, here is what is up for grabs!

This bag is lined, and I used interfacing to help with stability. The straps are silver PVC. And, I made it myself! I've never made a bag before, so I was very please with how it turned out.

And in that bag you'll find 7 fat quarters of Kaffe Fasset shot cottons.

A special thanks to everyone who has read or commented on the blog, and an extra special thanks the person who found my blog through the following search, because, man, what were they even looking for? I hope they find it someday.

Love the bag. Reminds me of my husband who can only cook breakfast: bacon and eggs every time. Oh well, he does the cleaning so I can't complain. Congrats on you 100th post, I really enjoy your blog.
What, no picture of Fritz!

Congrats on 100 posts! Oh... and I'm with Jen: would love to see a photo with the cat inside :)

Well, if I don't win the giveaway, I may commission you to make me something with the breakfast block on it.

Maybe we can put it on a shirt? A pillow? A tote-like backpack? :)

Also, Fritz is such a good sport!

Ahh! I'm on central time, not pacific! Maybe I'm writing in time... maybe... maybe... Thanks for stuffing a cat in a bag--made my morning (afternoon) (whatever) :-D
