To celebrate, I'd like to give you things. I wish I could give all 101 of you a little something but I know that will never work out. Instead, I'm going to give you a chance to win some of my favorites things, which also happen to be the ingredients for a Marshmallow Brochette lap quilt top! One lucky person will win:

1 yard of Kona White:

3 yards of Kona Medium Gray:



And a Kona Bright charm pack:

(I used pictures from the Fat Quarter Shop because that's where I bought these prizes. The Fat Quarter Shop is not sponsoring this giveaway but I do like shopping there!)

How to win: 

1. Leave me a comment that you are a follower. Unfortunately there's no way for me to see who my RSS readers are, only how many I have. I know you are out there and I appreciate that! I can see all the people who follow me using Google friend connect:

On the right sidebar you'll see my Followers and a button to follow if you haven't already joined.

 
If you click the button you'll see this pop-up:


If you already have a Google, Twitter, or Yahoo account you can become a Threaded Mess follower and your profile picture will appear in my sidebar. If you don't have any of those accounts, it's pretty easy to sign up.

2. Leave me a comment that you've joined the Threaded Mess flickr group.
3. Leave a comment about something you liked on Threaded Mess and would like to see more of.
4. Blog about this giveaway and leave me a comment with the link.

****************************************************************

Please make sure for any comment you leave that you also provide a way for me to contact you!


I try to respond to as many comments as possible so if you have left a comment and haven't heard anything from me, you might be one of the No Reply Bloggers. How do you fix it? Go to your Dashboard on your Blogger.com account page. Select "Edit Profile" and check the box that says "Show my email address" (and remember to save your changes). It's that simple.

If you don't have a Blogger.com account and don't want bots to be able to find and exploit your email address, you can include it in your comment like this:

threadedmess (at) gmail (dot) com

I will randomly select a winner Thursday June 2nd at 7pm EST.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. Words cannot accurately describe how excited I am that I have reached this milestone thanks to you all. I hope that you continue to enjoy reading Threaded Mess in the future!

Happy Quilting

Apart from the quilt-along I like very much (although I cannot join it now)I like your inspiration collages and how you find some matching fabrics - it certainly could be a regular thing on the blog.

um, amazing giveaway! crossing my fingers- i'm a follower! :)

littlemissmk said...

joined your flickr group! :)

littlemissmk said...

for what i'd like to see more of- i have to give the go-to answer and say tutorials, cuz you really can't go wrong with awesome tutorials. but my other answer would be things about yourself- i love the fact that you post pics of yourself, say things about who you are, etc. there are some blogs i follow that i really have no clue as to who the person is. i like knowing who i'm reading about. :)
