100th Post and a Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway!

I started a post today to show you my finished Fig Tree quilt when I noticed it would be my 100th post.  Well, that deserves a party doesn't it?!  So, I've decided to put one of my lovely but neglected FAT QUARTER BUNDLES up for adoption!  I have too many current and future WIPs that won't allow me time to get to this great fabric soon enough.

One lucky winner will receive 19 FQs (did I get 20 and one of them escaped?  I have no idea.) of the fabric line Riviera by Connecting Threads.  This is not a sponsored post, I just like them :-)  This fabric feels very nice and has wonderful modern colors in it.  Many of you have mentioned wanting to try Connecting Threads so here is your chance!  They also make popular quilting thread at very good prices and I can tell you from personal experience they have great customer service.

Here is the fabric porn you're looking for:



 

oooo, ahhhh, yummmm.

Now, what were we talking about?  Oh, yeah, the giveaway.  It's a jump-through-hoops one because I could use some more love around here :-)
1) One entry for a comment about your current WIP (work in progress) or a dream WIP.
2) One entry for becoming a Follower/Subscriber here at Frecklemama.com.
3) One entry for becoming a Follower on Twitter (@frecklemama).

For each entry, please leave a separate comment.  If you're already a follower or a friend just let me know.  I will leave the giveaway open for a week and draw a winner next Friday, 3/11.

In the meantime, I'll get my Fig Tree quilt pictures ready and post them soon.  Talk about eye-candy...


*** NOTE:  Wonder why you seem to never win blog giveaways?  You may be a No-Reply blogger without realizing it!  To find out more about this please go HERE.

  5. Congrats on 100 posts! I follow your blog and twitter already…

    You and crazymomquilts both mentioned Connecting Threads. Now I really have to check them out.

    As for current WIP, I have two. One is a nine-patch out of Miniatures (Windham Fabrics) and the other is an applique project for a class I'm taking. I also have two jelly rolls sitting at home waiting, and another set of cut fabrics for a mother’s day gift… so many ideas, so little time.

  25. Cute fabric! What WIPs don't I have? 3 quilt tops that have to be quilted before I can photograph them for their pattern covers. One quilt top that needs to be completed, quilted and photographed.

    And does my partially-assembled quilting frame that I need to complete before I can actually quilt count as a WIP?

    I have way too many WIPs right now. The one I'm most excited to finish is the hand quilting on a queen size quilt. At the rate I'm going though, it may still be a WIP this time net year.
    My dream project is a Plume quilt for my bed. I still haven't decided on a design though. Wait until the hubs finds out I'm putting those bright girly colors on our bed. :)

  39. 100 posts! Congratulations! I am working on my biggest quilt so far - a California King - it's a gift for a friend. Each block is 7.5 inches finished and has 20 pieces. It has turned out to be way more complicated than I anticipated, and I get a little discouraged at times, but I will make it!

    I would have loved to try out connectingthreads, but unfortunatly they do not send international ... what ia a pity as they have nice fabrics, good prices, good supplies.... (and if you don´t want to send international, just put me out the draw:)) At the moment I´m working on a doll quilt for the dqs10 on flickr ... a smaller version of a wedding ring ... today I´ll have to think about how to go on - yesterday I could not find a decision ...

  67. Happy 100th post! I bought some Connecting Threads fabric when it was insanely cheap and I've been really happy with it. It all has small prints so I use it all the time. For WIP I have many but one that has been on the back burner for over a year now (as my mom pointed out this morning) is a quilt that I just lost interest in. It's already basted but I got stuck with how to quilt it so there it sits. I swear that it will be done by Mothers Day!
