WIP Wednesday and 200 Followers Giveaway

  • Would you care to guess what this is?





Tune in next Wednesday to find out!


  • I'm now caught up on my 2012 Designer Mystery BOM from Fat Quarter Shop.  I'm loving this fabric.





Other than these two projects, I've been binding Quilts of Valor -- three so far.  I'll show the finished quilts on Friday.



  • Next, let's celebrate 200+ followers!  I read about the Kate Spain paper goods on her blog, and rushed out to Michael's to stock up before they sold out.  Just so I could give them to a loyal 52 Quilts follower.


This little collection includes a magnetic list pad, notes, scrapbook papers, mini journal and emery boards with Kate Spain "Terrain" designs.  I added some fat quarters, because after all, this is a quilting blog!



To win, all you have to do is:

  1. Be a follower of 52 quilts
  2. Make a comment on this post
  3. Giveaway ends at noon MDT next Wednesday, September 12
  4. As always, international entries welcome!

And because it's Wednesday, I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday.

  8. Oh wow! I didn't know there were paper goods by Kate Spain! They probably haven't made it to Australia though. Congrats about the 200 followers.
    I'm not sure if I should mention the issue with the centre block of your Designer Mystery BOM blocks!
    Good on you for a lovely giveaway!

  21. I'm a new follower. I love Terrain. I'm using it to make what should have been my first quilt, apart from my sister announcing she was pregnant when I was half way through. So I've made a quilt for my niece first and she was born on Saturday so I'm trying to remember what on earth I was supposed to be doing to make the next few rows line up! Thanks for a great giveaway.

    1. Just so you all know, this comment was by DH who was testing how my "post a comment" works. He is really annoyed that you have to "read the comments" (no you don't, click on # comments and it takes you right to the "leave a comment box) before you can leave a comment. I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had a problem leaving a comment. Click on "Contributors Aunt Marti" at the right hand side of every post if "leave your comment" doesn't work for you, and you can send me an email! And no, DH, you cannot win the giveaway. After all, I bought it with your salary.
