Time Flies!

Hard to believe, but our first blog anniversary is this Saturday.  Last year, Jan dropped by on my birthday and we were chatting on the porch - six days later we were blogging.  So, we're having an anniversary 'give away' - two party-goers will each receive 50 3" squares and 5 fat quarters (all pre-washed). Leave a comment with your favorite quilt book title.  I'll draw two names on Saturday at 7:00 PM (close to the time of our first post) .  Thanks for dropping by - we love reading your comments!

Happy Blogoversary! I have enjoyed your blog, probably since the beginning (Larry liked your creative title). I might be a bit of a lurker, :-} I've recently enjoyed Scrap Basket Surprises, Adventures with Leaders and Enders, and my older favorite is Tried and True by Barbara Brandenburg.

A very happy birthday, both blog and calendar! It was my (real) birthday yesterday, so HBD to me too.
My most favourite book is an oldie but a goodie - Roderick Kiracofe's "The American Quilt". My copy sports a host of yellow post-it notes flagging quilts of interest, quilts that maybe I might make, and great design ideas.
Thanks for sharing your quilting life. Kate

Happy Blog Anniversity!! My favorite book definately has to be Treasury of American Quilts by Cyril Nelson and Carter Houck. There is so much inspiration in there - I could sew forever. I sure enjoy your blog - hope you have many more anniversarys!

Happy Bloaverisary! Enjoy the blog very much. I am a new quilter, so I do not have many books but I do love the Schnibbles times two book. I am working on my second quilt and doing a lot of praying. I do not have a blog at this time but plan to do one in the future.
Celebrate!

"Make Room for Quilts" is my favorite book. It's great for inspiration! Please add me to the drawing!

Janet said...

Congratulations on your anniversary, getting your heads together and starting a blog was a brilliant idea.
Favourite book is Freddy Moran's house book. Not because I want to make the patterns, it's just a cheerful happy one to look through.

Lori said...

It's so hard to name just one favorite- I'd have to say A People and Their Quilts.

I think my all time favorite book is Plain and Fancy by by Donna Bister and Richard Cleveland that I discovered the Jane A. Stickle quilt made popular by Brenda Papadakis in her book "Dear Jane" I love small blocks and little pieces. I would very much like to be in you drawing. Happy Blogiversary!!!

Congratulations on your blogiversary! My current favorite quilt book is Kaleidoscope quilts by Paula Nadelstern.

Gypsy Quilter said...

Hmm, a tough question to be sure. But one of my favorites is Harriet Hargraves' Heirloom Machine Quilting. Harriet always does a great job on her books.

Kath said...

I would have to say "Scrap quilts" by Judy Martine. I just adore scrap quilts!

Karen said...

Congratulations on one year. Hard to pick a favorite book. But the one that has impacted me most in the last year is Philippa Naylor's book "Quiling in the Limelight". It was awesome!

Quiltdoodles said...

I love your spider quilt. I am thinking of making one from all my scraps. Thanks for posting. As far as my favoirte quilting book, gosh, that is hard. I dearly love the "Make any block any size" by Joen Wolfrom and Liz Ancloski.

Minka's Studio said...

I just left a message but can't tell if it "registered," so I'm trying again. Happy Blog-aversary! I just bought Jinny Beyers book on Medallion Qults. I had borrowed it from the library and then decided I could not live without it. I also find all of Kaffe Fassetts books to be the best in eye candy. Thank you for offering this give away. May you have many more happy years of quilting and blogging.

Kristy said...

I have over twenty books from the library right now on quilting alone......so I could give you a list....but I will choose SCHNIBBLES TIMES TWO by Carrie Nelson. Congrats on your blogaversary...I would be thrilled with the fabrics.....so much fun. Most things I do are scrappy....so PERFECT!

Blogless me said...

I love Yoko Saito' books - everything about them - the colour palette, the designs, the simplicity, the sophistication ...

Well, I am SO glad that you began blogging!!!!! Happy Anniversary!
Goodness, so many books that I love. Especially historical ones. I keep rereading A PEOPLE AND THEIR QUILTS, so I guess it's my favorite. :)

KatieQ said...

Happy blogiversary (I realize it's not a word, but it should be). My current favorite quilt book is Schnibbles Times Two, but I still go back to my old favorite P.S. I Love You Too when I want some inspiration for a baby quilt.

Barb said...

congratulations to you and the winners - I'm behind on my blog reading - summer and all -
What a nice give away!

HexaBee said...

My favorite quilt book is 'Small blocks, stunning quilts', because I like to use as many different, ánd as tiny little pieces in my quilts. So each time I take a look in the book I'm amazed that there are some ladies who're even more 'crazy' than me!
