1st Fabric Give Away and 1 Year Celebration

Why a fabric give away you ask?   March 28th will be my one year blogiversary.  I decided a celebration in fabric would be in order.   This is not the only give away, so check back often this month for more. 

In case this is your first time checking me out, here is what I am about.  
I am a quilt artist that specializes in 3D embellishing.  I have my own method for making shapes 3 dimensional.  You can check out my gallery to see them.

I am part of a design team for The Quilted Fish, which belongs to Amanda Herring who is fabric designer extraordinaire for Riley Blake.   Our team  designs patterns and posts them on The Quilted Fish blog as tutorials using her latest fabric.  Yes, I do know I am a very lucky girl!  

My goal for my 1 year anniversary is to get 150 followers.   I had thought of doing 100, but then decided why not push the limit, and dream really, really big.   So I did.... I want 150 followers by March 31st.   There I said it.   Now to achieve it.

On to the important stuff, how to win fabric.   Pictured above is an Easter fat quarter bundle of 5 -100% cotton fabrics.   For a chance to win, you must do one of the following, or all of them.

1.   Sign up to Follow my blog.  Then post a comment telling me you did so.
2.  Post about it on your blog.   Tell me you did in the comment section.
3.  And if you are already an angel and following me, post a comment letting me know.

I will make the draw on Friday March 11th.  That is the day that I post my tutorial on The Quilted Fish.  So you simply must come back to see if you are the winner and to see the totally cool art I created with Amanda's fabric line 'Sweet Divinity'.

This contest is open world wide.   And let's get that dream of mine underway! Go 150 go!

There will be another contest soon so check back often.

Congrats.

I don't follow anyone ... I use google.com/reader to follow my favorite blogs. Just thought you'd want to know that lots of people use reader instead of follow. I just don't want more email coming to me ... just my way. You're listed in my reader.

Happy more years of blogging. Please do not enter me.
