My 300th Post Giveaway



I've written more than 300 posts on this blog, and I have over 300 followers.  Welcome to my new followers.  And to those of you who have been following along for awhile, thank you for being here.  I appreciate each and every one of you stopping by to visit.  So I've decided to have a giveaway for my followers. 


I'm going to choose two winners using the random number generator.  The first winner will receive 100 charm squares I've cut from my stash and a pattern from the Red Button Quilt Company.  The charm squares are all reproduction fabrics or fabrics I would use in a repro quilt.  The pattern doesn't show up too well in the photo, but there are little stitcheries in the center of each churn dash block.





I'll send the second winner these two Moda Butterscotch and Rose charm packs and Schnibbles pattern.


Here are a few ideas how you can use charm packs:

Any of the Schnibbles patterns by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.




Are you still working on the baskets from the book, When the Cold Wind Blows?  One charm square will make a basket.

       


Are you working on tumblers?


                                        

 Maybe you have a hexagon project in the works.

 
                                    


Spools?

                             

Yo-yos?

                                

A five inch square of fabric is enough to make a block for most of these projects.

                           


All you have to do to win is to be one of my followers (or become one) and leave a comment to let me know what you would do with these charm squares if you are the lucky winner.


 The giveaway will close on Thursday at noon.  

Thanks for visiting.

TLC said...

Congratulations on 300 posts! With a 5" charm pack I would do basket blocks and try to get a tumbler out of the basket fabric too. Thanks!

yorkie mom said...

WOW! Stitchery, churn dash and repo fabric? My three favorite things! And love to make tumblers. Congrats on the blog posting milestone.

Me and My Stitches said...

My head is spinning from all of your projects - they are all wonderful! I have been wanting to start the little basket quilt - maybe having some charms would give me that little push that I need! Congrats on your 300th blog post - doesn't time just fly?

Scrapatches said...

300 Posts! Thanks for all the wonderful quilty ideas and goodies you have shared. I am currently working on a simple scrap quilt started with a baggie of 4" squares that I bought for a quarter at at quilt show table. I have added scraps and such from my stash to make a larger quilt. I like scrappy quilts. What would I do with 100 Charm squares? I would make (or start) another scrappy quilt ... :) Pat

Martina said...

Oh, congratulations! I love to read your posts and hope there will be many more. So I am a happy follower! The charms are so lovely! I would use the for my birds and berry BOM quilt. I am collecting fabrics for it with.
Thanks so much!

Rosa said...

Congratulations,300 and 300 ,that`s great!

what to do with the charm pack?Many projects to use them.I`ve played with tumbler so runner bed with spools designs would be welcome.
Yes,I`m a happy follower.Thanks for the chance!!

Mommarock said...

Oooh! I just found a really cool pattern that is a quilt as you go. It calls for a hexagon in the middle (that would fit perfectly with a charm square) then it needs a batting under that. Then it needs a muslin flower folded around the outside of that and the petals of the flower fold up around the edges of the hexagon and get stitched down in place. One hexie DONE. Move on to the next.

Janet O. said...

Yours was one of the first blogs I found when I began following blogs 1 1/2 years ago. You have always been encouraging and kind, and you make beautiful quilts! Congrats on the 300 milestone in both areas!
Generous giveaway, LuAnn. If I won the charm squares I can think of dozens of possibilities. I love repro fabrics and traditional patterns. They might all go into one quilt using churn dash or shoo-fly, or a 9-patch. I might use them in a few different mini quilts, making stars or tumblers or rail fence. Believe me, they would be well-loved and well-used.

Yvette said...

I think I have read all 300! I am hoping for at least another 300 x 300.

Can you imagine all the baskets I could add with those charm squares? I SURE CAN!

Thanks for the opportunity.

Congratulations!

regan said...

Congrats on your 300 milestones! Woohoo! Awesome! And I've been wanting to start a tumblers quilt with my repros, so those charms would add right to it! Yay! Thanks for having the giveaway!

Ruth said...

Congrats on your milestone! I'd use the charm squares to make the most sophisticated baby quilt going.

ranette said...

Yes LuAnn, congrats on 300 and 300!
I am pretty sure I'm already a follower, but I followed you on Pintrest (don't you just love it?!) just now as well.

Your blog is always an inspiration to me, especially during the times in my life when I don't have time to sew! Thank you!

pinsandneedles said...

Congratulations! I'm a follower and enjoy reading your blog. I would make some kind of quilt...scrappy spools or hourglass...Thanks!

Pokey said...

Oh, I have plans for a small nine patch, and those Temecula stars thrown in, wouldn't that be neat?!? Congratulations on 300 posts, amazing!
I'm always inspired by your work, LuAnn, you do my kind of eye candy ~

Barb said...

I have been following you for some time now....Congrats on the 300 post!

Leslie Creech said...

Just started Bonnie Hunter's new leader/ender project for the year. We're making the spools you showed on your blog. Those charms would add a lot of variety to my scrap pile that I'm working from. Discovered your blog a couple of months ago--get lots of ideas and check it daily.

Judy Dietrich said...

First--I would have to spread them all out on a table and look at them. What is it about fabric--it just pulls you in!! Then I think I would start a basket quilt like shown in your blog. I like following your blog for the tutorials & fun ideas.

Mary said...

Congratulations on your milestones! I have several Schnibbles patterns as well as her Schnibbles books, so I would probably make one of those, but I also enjoy doing tumbler quilts and the twister ones so I'm not sure but it'd be a fun problem to solve. Thanks for a chance to win.

Raewyn said...

Double congratulations! I have a schnibbles book too that I could use the charms for, but I am a spool and hexie addict so could make some more of those too. And I'm a long-time follower too - always enjoy your posts.

Lynn said...

Since I've discovered your blog a few months ago, I've enjoyed following.
I think I would make a basket quilt. I've always wanted to make one of those and these would be just the thing.

Anne-Mettes Oaser said...

Congratulations on your many lovely posts, which I enjoy reading.
Such a generous give away. I think, I would use the charm squares for my tumbler quilt.

judith lockhart said...

Luann, you have a great blog and congratulations on 300 posts!! The charm squares would be great to use on a mini reproduction quilt for me!

Rebeckah Austin said...

Osage Bluff Quilter said...

I'd love any of those fabrics. I am thinking of making blocks with stark white fabric and some bright colors. I can't remember the name, but it's all squares.
Pick me!
Patti

In stitches,
