100 and a giveaway!

I can't believe this is my 100th post.  If you will post a comment I have a fat pack of fabric to send you.  I don't know what it will be yet, but I do know it will be one of my fat packs from the store.  It will all be a surprise! 

Now, for the reason for this posting other than it is my 100th.  I just finished making another wall hanging.  When I started this, I planned on giving it to my assistant director and may still do so, but it didn't turn out like I thought it would.   I wanted the vase to blend and I think it blends way too much.  Here, look at the picture and let me know what you think.   

Now that I am looking at the picture of the quilt, it might not be so bad.  I have always wanted to try my hand at making those roses/flowers and they are a lot of fun.  It was interesting putting them into the vase.  I really had to use my 15 minute play skills that I have learned to get them to go the way I wanted.  I am glad that the background has a lot of  visual texture to it since it has been pieced and re-pieced.  The leaves are appliqued on and I really wanted 5 leaves, but one of them just didn't make the cut and I don't want to re-make one leaf so it looks a little blank on the right hand side.  However, after all my criticism, I kind of like it.  Flat, but interesting.  It may just make it to her office, yet. 

Now, back to the giveaway. (by the way, this is my first and if all goes great, it may be the first of many)  Answer this question, please:  What color is your favorite go to quilting color?  What I mean is, which color do you always gravitate towards in the store, when choosing fabric to start a project, when you look around your stash is there one color that is more dominate?  What about which color do you find hard to work with?  Is there just one, or do you have more than one? 

I tend to lean more towards the greens and pinks.  They are my two favorite colors and I love them in combination.  My least used color is probably tan/cream.  I don't have a lot of those colors because to me they seem colorless.  I love color and tan and cream seem to not have any color to them, in my opinion.  Now it is your turn.  I will try to pick a winner by Wednesday. 


  1. Happy 100th! My favorite color for quilting is lime green. It started in 2000 when I bought a lime green VW Beetle and now I'm addicted to it. I try to put a little into every quilt.

  2. The color that I seem to gravitate towards is chocolate browns. Strange to say, I don't have much fabric in these colors! :-)

  3. My favorite color is blue in all it's pretty shades. The quilt looks good! Congratulations on the milestone reached. 100 posts is huge (I'm a non blogger).


  5. my go-to color is a red. I don't actually have many in my stash right now because I use it so much! (I am enamored by your roses - may try them myself soon.)
