100th post giveaway!!!

So, technically it's not my 100th post, but it turns out that I blog in my head quite a lot!  I take pictures and plan on what to write, but it never seems to get typed in.  So I figure if I had posted all of the times that I planned on, it would be right about 100 posts!

I'll be giving away a Wonderland by Momo Honey Bun!  Plus some extra surprises!  I found a great sale and bought 5(!) of these and have a bit of a surplus.  I made this baby quilt for a friend expecting her first baby in April, delivered it to her this morning and she loved it!  Actually, so do I!  This was made using less than one honey bun, the scraps from this will go into another quilt!

And I've not blogged about this quilt either!!  When Amanda came in November for the quilting retreat at the inn, she brought lots of samples to show us.  This quilt was made out of the leftovers from her film strip quilt that was made to giveaway at the retreat.  Mama urchin is now the proud owner of the film strip quilt, but lucky me was given this one as a thank you for setting up the retreat!  I feel so special. Especially since Amanda isn't blogging anymore--I really feel the void in blogland!

So---to enter this giveaway, just leave a comment on this post.  All of my followers are automatically entered, if you become a follower, you will get an extra entry, and if you blog about this giveaway and leave me a separate comment, you will be entered again!  So, three chances to win!

And check back often because the info about our 2nd annual quilting retreat with Amanda will be posted soon!

  2. I love your quilting. I have only made one quilt in my life time, but are making 5 small ones right now for Binky Patrol (gives quilts to kids in crisis).... would love to get a "honeybun". (what is a honey bun, a spool of material I am guessing.)
