My 100th Post: Happy Make-a-Quilt Day and a Giveaway!

Wow, I can not believe that I finally made it to my 100th post here at Miss Print! When I wrote my first post back in July 2008 (I know we're almost at 2 years too, watch out for another giveaway then!) I didn't know if this whole "blogging thing" was going to go anywhere or I was even going to like it. However, I really do love it and even though I wish I were able to blog more often, I really appreciate everyone who stops by and leaves a comment...especially those of you who comment on almost or every post...ahem, cough cough, I'm looking at you Dionne! I've met so many wonderful people and have made some absolutely lovely friends through blogging and I never could have imagined it 100 posts ago!

Alright, so I bet you want to know what the giveaway is, right? Well let me tell you, there are actually two giveaways...yes, you heard me, TWO!

First up, in honour of Make-a-Quilt Day, we have a little package containing one charm pack and one turnover from the Nostalgia collection by April Cornell for Moda.



The charm pack contains 40 5x5" squares (one of each print in the collection) and the turnover contains 80 half square triangles (2 of each print in the collection). Did you know that when you sew two of these half square triangles together with 1/4" seam allowance that you end up with a 5x5" square? Neat!

Second, we have Crochet Blocks in a Box by Luise Roberts!


This nifty little box includes 50 crochet block patterns each on their own individual card. Each card shows a picture of the block on the front with the directions printed on the back. It also comes with a little booklet with instructions for each needed stitch, some tips and techniques, and some sample layouts for using multiple blocks in one afghan. There is also an extra "key card" which includes a helpful list of abbreviations, and the number of blocks you will need to make afghans in a variety of standard sizes (from crib to king).

As an added bonus each prize will contain a little something from me...it could be some fabric, or a little something handmade by me...it's a surprise, so I'm not telling!

Okay, so here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post..it can be anything...
but maybe you could let me know what first brought you to my blog, 
or what your favourite thing about my blog is.

2. To get a second entry: Leave a second comment on this post
if you are a follower or if you become one.

3. For a third entry: Blog about my giveaway and come back
and leave me the link on this post (I will be checking).

There you go, three easy ways to enter for a chance to win! Please make sure to leave each entry as a separate comment. I will pick two winners next Monday (April 26) and announce them here on the blog. The first person picked will get their choice of prize and the second person will get the other. And the giveaway is open worldwide - anyone can enter!

Also, remember that all comments are moderated, so if your comment doesn't appear right away please give me some time. Duplicate comments will be deleted.

Good luck everyone!

  1. Kaye, I first came to your blog after we "met" via the Quilthome.com blog of the week winner. You are a very warm, wonderful, sweet, genuine girl.

    You are supportive and encouraging. Thoughtful. And you sent me a Christmas card! That was so sweet!

    I love your blog because you are learning leaps and bounds all kinds of new things and its fun to watch you expand and experience and grow in your very wonderful talents and gifts.

    Happy 100th post and may there be many, many more.
