A milestone

If I showed you this picture would you know what I am celebrating?





Nope! We are not enlarging my sewing space...






How about this picture?


100 posts!

It took me a while but I made it. Now you can't celebrate without gifts ...

There is so much talk about scrappy quilts these days. 
I see more and more patterns for scrappy quilts, and honestly they are my favorite. They just have so much interest and character. 
So I am going to go through my stash and make up a bundle of charms. 100 to be exact! ( I may even post a photo of them after I get them all cut)
Add a nice neutral to them and voila you have the makings of a scrappy quilt, or split them up and you have enough for a couple of totes or table toppers. 
If you would like a chance to win this bundle of charms, just leave a comment(I love comments). If you want to tell me what your favorite charm pattern is that would be good too. 
I will take comments until Thursday October 21st, 9 p.m. local time. 
If you are posting your comment "anonymously" just leave your first name at the end of your comment. If you are the winner I will announce it Friday morning and then you can e-mail me  privately to leave me your address. 
You could even go to my profile and send me an email, if that's is easier for you.

Good luck and don't forget to tell me your favorite charm pattern.

I don't really have a favorite charm pattern. I do (like you ) particularly like anything scrappy, and I do love to use charm packs for baby quilts. I can't believe you're actually going to cut up 100 charms!

Scrappy quilts are my favourite too ! I love charm packs -it's a great way to sample a collection without breaking the bank. As you know, I have admired your stash on a number of occasions and would LOVE a sample of your collection. If my name is chosen, I would promise to take great care of your charm bundle!!!! Sue

I do love the Big Bag Pattern that was in a McCalls Quilting magazine a year or so ago. I uses a large charm pack and makes a great bag.

Happy 100+ posts. My friends and I make scrap quilts and we found that we really, really like the nine patch. Personally, I like scrap quilts that only have one template. I guess a nine-patch qualifies but there are lots of others. Thanks for the chance to win.
