Gobble Gobble Giveaway

This year my birthday is on Thursday. That's right. On Thanksgiving Day. Which guarantees that I will be spending nearly the whole day with those who are nearest and dearest to me. What a gift!

Were you a part of Blogger's Quilt Festival 2010? Did you post one of your quilts? Did you check out the other amazing festival quilts? What amazing talent out there in blogland. It's not too late. You can still spend some time getting inspired here.

Through a series of kind of weird events, I have an extra pincushion that I made specifically for Blogger's Quilt Festival 2010. Just leave a comment and let me know if you posted a quilt, if you checked out the other quilts, if you've never heard of Blogger's Quilt Festival, whatever. Time ends on Thursday, November 25, at 4:37 a.m. PDT.

I know. Weird time. But that's when I was born. Month, day and time. And that's as much info as you're getting about that topic...

I'll notify the winner on Friday. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I did post a quilt on the Bloggers Quilt Festival. As a matter of fact I've participated every time since Amy started hosting the Festival. Love to see all the beautiful quilts from all over the world. What a great quilt show. And thanks for the cool giveaway. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Well....happy early birthday. It will be fun to be surrounded by those you love on such a special day.

I have checked out the BQF, but did not enter. It is always fun to look for inspiration though.

deserae said... #

I didn't enter a quilt, but I did enjoy looking at everyone else's quilts!

Brenda said... #

I posted a quilt and checked out many of them. thanks for the chance to win. and happy birthday!

Kasey said... #

I checked out a bunch of them, but I think the most important part of my comment would be this: HAPPY BIRTHDAY from one November birthday to another! And, Happy Thanksgiving!!! My family usually "celebrates" my birthday on Thanksgiving anyway, since that's when the out-of-towners are here.
Maybe you should stick a candle in the turkey this year... haha!

randi said... #

This was my first Blogger's Quilt Festival...I started blogging in July 2010 and I am having a blast! I have discovered so many wonderful blogs(including yours) and I am trying to use them for inspiration and hopefully a little productivity on my part. I have been slowing down the past few weeks on my blogging(busy life), but I am staying up-to-date with my blog reading : )


Kaye Prince said... #

I posted a quilt and I checked out almost all of them! I'd loooove to win your awesome pincushion!

lindaroo said... #

I really enjoyed seeing all the creativity and beauty on BQF. I started quilting a year ago, and blogging only recently, and I'm not confident enough to make it public, yet! Happy Thanksgiving!

Irina said... #

I participated in the Bloggers Quilt Festival and I loved to see all the other bloggers' quilts. They were amazing! I discovered so many blogs too.
I love the little pincushion, it's a great idea to use up your salvages!

pinsandneedles said... #

Yes, I posted on Blogger's quilt Festival! Although I haven't got to visiting all yet, I visited many. Still trying to get through more as time allows.

Happy Thanksgiving and Birthday!

Amelia said... #

Happy Birthday Cindy and Happy Thanksgiving!!
I didn't have a completed quilt to put in the Blogger's Quilt Festival this year, but I will next year. It's wonderful to see so many beautiful quilts made by some awesome people!
I love the pincushion by the way. I got to check out Kate's while I was in Sydney recently and it has such a lovely weight to it and I love all the selveges of course. I think I might have to put in a custom order :)

I have checked some quilts out though not as many as wished because of time (more than 600 entries!) I didn't post a quilt because have no blog.
Thanks for the gobble gobble giveaway. This is my last entry before leave to gobble gobble my dinner. Love your pincushions.

The pincushion is very cute! Love the use of the selvages. Happy Birthday.
