That’s my post tally — 400! They add up SO fast – let’s celebrate with a giveaway! A set of 8 Meadowsweet Fat Quarters has been donated by Quilted Treasures! I love the colors and beautiful prints in this line! You may have the group shown or pick your favorites from what they have in stock. Many, many thanks to Kristina for making this happen!

Thanks to all of YOU – you make me want to blog and share my family and projects here with you! Thank you for spreading the word and making the Blogger’s Quilt Festival such an amazing success, and for making this little space in blogland, a fun place to be! There’s so much more to come, and I’m excited to see what is in store!

Enough mushy stuff, to win:
– leave me a comment! Something interesting – like your favorite fabric line in Quilted Treasures Shop, your lunch plans, how many more presents you have to wrap, or whatever you are working on, I won’t tell your secrets.
– become a follower or reader subscriber, and leave a comment letting me know.
tweet me about the giveaway, and leave a comment letting me know.
– and you can post on your blog, for an extra 3 chances – just leave me a comment to let me know :)

Do 1 or all 4! it’s up to you, I will select a winner (via RNG) on Monday, December 21.

Many blessings to you~

    Today is the day I get out all the presents that I've acquired throughout the year and determine who has enough, who still needs a wee bit more, and who has too many and needs some tucked away for the next birthday :)

    Congratulations Amy! 400 posts – that is amazing! I have so enjoyed getting to know you through our blogs, so this is cause for celebration. I just finished wrapping up several boxes of handmade goodies to send to some of my blogger friends. And now I'm making a scarf and two Christmasy quilts – what fun!

    mom says:

    YAY for 400!

    Mmmm, I like the fat quarter giveaway fabrics, but also think her Meadowsweet Peach is pretty. And the Animal Party fabric would be fun to do in a little boys quilt :-)

    Lunch will be PBJ…I've wrapped NO presents yet and am NOT done shopping so I will be busy next week…and my project to come is a granddaughter's quilt which I'd love to figure out applique so I'm going to play for awhile with it.

    Enjoy your day, Amy! Stay warm!

Today my hubby is taking me to look at a quilting frame and a Janome 1600 machine that is for sale. I am excited about it. My LQS alerted me to this machine so I know it would be a good one to get. We shall see. Fingers crossed!

Today I am off to my one and only Christmas get together for the staff I work with, a breakfast before we have to clean up the preschool. It will be nice to see them all again. I am also looking forward to having no kids activities for 2 weeks, think I will hibernate! Have a good one!

    Congratulations on post 400! We are sure glad you have made it this far, and hope to see you for years to come.

    Something interesting … I am in the middle of a move 3 states away. My husband has been in NC for 6 weeks and will be back here in FL for a few days next week to celebrate Christmas, pack the truck with what remains, and take me with him to NC.

    Christmas this year is bare bones. No trappings and fluff. All about family and being together and the reason for our celebration.

    Let the party begin!

    I definitely want to enter your giveaway!
    Yesterday I started wrapping. Pulling everything out, and trying to figure out where I'm at, and what I'm missing. Good ole memory isn't what it used to be and I came up REALLY short for one of my children. Woops! So I need to go shopping today just for her, and then finish all the wrapping.
    Here's a little secret… we wrap Santa gifts in his own special wrapping paper (and after 18 years and 6 rolls we are now OUT! Ack!! Gotta try to find something similar!) Cuz kids notice those things! LOL!!

    How cool! Congrats on your 400th post! I love those fabrics. Such a pretty combination that I've never worked with before. With a 10 month old and an 8 year old – still no presents wrapped yet. Guess I will be up late on Christmas Eve choosing which ones to wrap and which ones will be from Santa. Much love to your blog Amy! Jenn

    Congrats on #400. I'm about to eat some salad for lunch and try and write a paper…or a few pages of the paper. It's that end-of-semester rush time which means no sewing until the work is done.

    Priscilla says:

    congratulations on your 400th post and thank you for your hard work of organising the online quilt festivals, which I love!

    today I was very angry at my sewing machine until the mechanic came to fix it for the second time in 3 days, and he showed me how to lower the lower feed dogs, a feature I had no idea that my machine can do – so since then I can only be angry at myself for having suffered for days with no success at stippling… :-)
    otherwise I spent the day working, so that from next week I can concentrate on Christmas preparations only. I had a bowl of Scottish "soup of the day" out of the freezer, went to see my daughter in kindergarten at their Christmas celebration where she would not participate and kept crying, and now I'll have a cup of tea to calm myself :-)

    While the hushabye line would be great for baby blankets, I'm smitten with that Michael Miller "owl" fabric. Way too cute!!
    I am waiting to wrap my Christmas gifts until the girls go to my parents house for three days. Just seems easier but it is stressing me out a bit that they are hiding under a blanket in the garage. I have clever girls and I just KNOW they could find them if they wanted to….

    I'm busy finishing off making my christmas presents and binding quilts to give to my children. You can never have too many quilts my children tell me. I don't wrap presents, we made Christmas bags and each person in our extended family has one. Then anyone who wants to can pop a present in someone's bag (they are not too big) and not have to worry about if it's too big or too little, it's just part of the bag of little things. It's so much fun and makes Christmas so easy for all of us. Plus it's heaps of fun to get your bag on Christmas day and look at all the little surprises in there.

    Congratulations Amy! 400 posts :)!! AMAZING…

    I have got a bunch of presents to wrap. I can't stick them under the tree because of little fingers, so am waiting until Christmas Eve to wrap so they don't get crinkled…

    I've got one last table runner to bind, and last night I started making a bunch of crayon rolls for the boys little friends at daycare. I've also got to make a library tote for my nephew and a wee gift for their daycare teacher!

    Love your blog. Thanks for your continued inspiration! Will you do another recipe swap soon?

    Congratulations Amy. Actually your first quilters festival got me thinking about starting my own blog so I could participate and eventually I did. There are so many great quilty things going on in blogland. Its been a great outlet for me seeing as I can no longer make it to my old quilting group anymore. You write a lovely blog and should be proud of it. I have you in my Google Reader.
    I had a look over at the shop and spotted some 'all stars flannel' pack in red and blue. I immediately thought of my son. Its hard to get great boys fabrics. I am spending today getting ready for a two week holiday at my parents house. I really don't like this prepartion part. But it means all shopping done and everything wrapped. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    This year my son is not able to come home for the holidays, so we sent him a box of Christmas. It was so much fun to put together. a small tree, tree skirt, ornaments, candy, packages, stocking stuffers, and as is our tradition, beef jerky. We will miss him being here, but it makes me feel better knowing he will have some holiday magic around him.

    Congrats! I hope to get that far someday! About 5 minutes ago I just finished my "business" sewing – hopefully for the year!! I sent out 168 quillows into the world this year and many of them will be opened as Christmas presents – wierd to think about that! My husband has been a real doll by picking up a needle and floss and helping me tie over 20 quillows just in the past week and a half! I am truly blessed! Now that I am done with my "have-to" sewing, it would be so nice to have some "fun" sewing to day and those fat quarters would be perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to win! Merry Christmas!!

    Congratulations on 400 posts Amy! Love Meadowsweet and would truely love to have those in you pic :o) Today I have cleared the spare room of all the debris that collected through the summer, cleaned and made ready for Christmas guest. Sorted fabrics and relocated, as well as books and 31 quilts. Still have laundry to do. All the wrapping is done, I just have to buy 2 bottles of wine for my neighbours and I'm done!

    I've been a follower for some time. Merry Christmas Amy and congrats again!

    I love those fabrics, I don't think I've seen them yet!
    My comment is about how challenging it is this year getting up to speed with Xmas. I made a pact with myself to spend little $$ and only make things that already exist in scrap/pattern form in my studio. To date, I have only one of three quilts done, and none of the 5 mini bags done. And to top it all off, today I spend $200 on gifts. Crap! I wanted to create all my own gifts. Oh well… all those projects aren't going anywhere, I'll get to them eventually, right?

    Keep up the good work. You are my hero.

    This is Fantastic! I am completely and utterly in love with this fabric! As for how many gifts I have left to wrap.. lets say all of them. I havent wrapped a thing. As of this morning I just realized that there was only 8 days till xmas and I still have a few gifts to make so Im slightly stressed about it. Good thing I'm on here instead of getting my things done hu? hahaha.. :)

Now, I have made 5, 4 of which I am giving for Christmas and 1 for a wedding gift. One of them goes to my grandson. What a wonderful, rewarding art form. And what wonderful people quilters are! :)

    My favorite bundle at QT Etsy shop are the Lizzy Dish bundles. I think they are just neat designs. My favorite gift for Christmas was given the other day.

    The fabrics are wonderful. I started teaching this fall after 30 years of doing other stuff and I haven't been able to sew. (It's a long story and I'm happy.) But I'm optimistic that i will get back to it. And these fabrics might compel me to find the time.

    What a great giveaway! What am I working on? Well, I can't tell exactly, but I involves fabric and thread. And I had to take a break this morning when I ran out of bobbin thread in the middle of stitching some words. Sigh . . . Oh, well, I wasn't too crazy about the top thread anyway, so this will prompt be to change that out and start with a FULL bobbin!

    Hi Amy, Have been following you in my google reader probably since I discovered blogs and yours was one I discovered early on. Your work and your blog in general is very inspirational and I'm not surprised that you have such a following. Organising the quilt festivals each year is such a generous thing to do. Thank you for giving your time to this. I am from New Zealand and we are getting ready for a summery Christmas here. I'm just working on a dress for my eldest daughter to wear on Christmas day then I have a couple of small gifts to do. Not too much stress. I love Christmas and am enjoying all the snowy pictures around blog land. Congratulations on 400 posts!!

So we are making a quilt with Figgy Pudding fabrics and the Candy Bar Road quilt pattern by SuzGuz Designs. I know this time with her at home is precious so we are making the most of it.

    Congrats on 400!! I just planned an impromptu Christmas open house to be held in just 4 days. Eek!! Better get to baking. I also have a quilt to quilt & bind and another to bind. No presents have been wrapped, but most of the shopping is complete. Oh, and house guests tonight. Love the fabric! Hope it's for me!!

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I check everyday! Right now, most of my baking is done and in the freezer but not the cranberry nut bread. I was thinking of doing that tomorrow. I have to wrap the kids' gifts too but that is just about it! Oh, I have to get Christmas groceries too.

    I'm working on a couple more projects for Christmas, but the secret is that if I don't get them done, I'm just going to give people things I already have finished, even if they weren't made specifically for them. I'm a reader subscriber.

    Hi Amy! I have almost all my gifts still to wrap – because of a kitten and a 2 year old, they don't stand much chance of staying wrapped another 5 days! They are patiently hogging up all the space in my coat closet for a few more days.

    I'm actually currently working on a project for a friend. She saw a table tent I made and asked if I'd make one custom to her table. I was excited to do it, but it's been a big undertaking! It's about done and I'm going to use the extra fabric to make a little apron for her daughter.
