Working on a Project for Me & a 111th Post Jelly Roll Giveaway for You!



At Christmas one of my sisters gave me a gift certificate to my LQS, and I used it to pick out a colorful assortment of 1/2 yards to come up with something fun & modern for Valentine's Day. So today I dived into this bright & yummy stack and may add a few of the Kaufman Quilters Tweeds that are in the photo, too...we shall see?!



On occasion of my 111th post (really 100th post but it was on Christmas Eve, so I decided to celebrate a bit late!), I'm giving away a Mill House Inn jelly roll.

To enter (and since it is still close to the beginning of the year), leave a comment telling me your most important quilting goal of the year? Learning to free motion quilt, sewing a baby quilt because your pregnant, etc... Also, leave a second comment if you are a follower or have me on your blogroll and I will add another entry for you.

I will pick the winner via RNG on Tuesday night. Hope you have a warm & productive weekend!

Lovely gift, I wish my family would gift me with gift cards or vouchers for my local fabric shop lol....

My most important quilting goal of the year is.... to learn how to quilt. I have decided that 2010 is the year I will learn the this fantastic art. I am starting with an eye spy quilt and a jelly roll quilt. I am not sure it's wise but I plan on learning free motion at the same time (figure it's easier to make the mistakes all at once lol).

Leah S said...





Most important? I think to have more finishes, or at least to keep track of my quilts. I am expecting a baby (haha), so I'm not putting any deadlines on myself.

I don't want to set aside a quilt until it's at least a top (crawling on the floor for pinning is getting mighty uncomfortable). I also started a "scrapbook" of my quilty progress. I just write down what I have in mind for a fabric or pattern I want to do. I draw out the quilt a bit, I put down where I got the inspiration. So hopefully when I'm in the midst of mommy-brain, I can just flip open to the page that has the quilt, instead of wondering why in the world did I cut these pieces and put them together... was I making a quilt? Duh. :D

Leah S said...





Oh yeah, I'm a subscriber to your blog. No other way I could handle keeping up with "everybody". :)

Jennife said...





This year I want to learn how to quilt. Last year I learned how to piece, so I have two quilt tops hanging on my walls and about 6 more in the works. Now, I want to learn how to put everything together so I can actually cuddle under my own quilt!

Lovely fabric! My main goals this year are to learn to free motion quilt and quilt the tops I have finished:) I'm also trying not to start a big project while I'm in the middle of another project. Not doing so well with that one, but I do have a quilt pin basted and ready to quilt on my machine.

Oh this is so sweet of you! My goal is to make as many quilts as many as possible for family, friends and charity. I also want to learn to FMQ. I am useless and do not have the patience for it but I want to learn to save money at the long arm quilter.

Lara said...

Sarah said...





Hi,
My name is Sarah from kitbikquilts.blogspot.com and I have only just started following your blog a week or two ago.
My most important quilting goal for 2010 is to finish the hexagon quilt I started in January last year. It will be a cot quilt for my baby. She is not due until 10th April, but I have been in hospital for the past two weeks (since 28 weeks gestation) due to threatened preterm labour, so I think she may arrive some time prior to April! She will probably be an Aquarius!
Cheers and thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway!
Sarah

Oh, sorry, I already said... I just started following your blog a week or two ago :-)

Thanks a lot for the chance.

My goal is to get more confident with free motion quilting so I can churn out more quilts and actually make all the quilts I have ideas for. Thanks for the chance to win a yummy jelly roll.

Catherine said...





Ooh and I'm a follower of course.

Rafael's Mum said...





Hi Karen, what a lovely giveaway! As for goals... I am going to try and prioritize a bit more... I have so much on and flitting from one to another.. So have resolved to make a list of all I still need to do (bee commitments etc) and want to do (quilts I have fabric for, or patterns or both or just quilts in my mind!) and once I have a list.. it will be easier to both decide what comes first as well as not worrying what I have forgotten!

Rafael's Mum said...





I have had you on my blogroll for ages now and just realized I can follow you on google too, which I am now doing. I am glad I can as it is so much easier keeping track via google reader and not everyone has this facility on their blog. That is another resolution btw... trying to find out how to separate my blog list in two bits... so the ones that cannot be followed in the reader are separate. It would make that much easier to have them in a separate list but not sure how to do this yet!

Katie B. said...





Thanks for the giveaway! How fun. My goal this year is to take my time and be more precise (with cutting, sewing, everything)! Come to think of it, this is probably a good goal for most aspects of my life. :)

Mystica said...





I would love to learn to machine quilt as all my quilts are upto now hand quilted. There is no place to learn here in Sri Lanka but if I travel this year to Australia I do hope I can follow a short course there. It takes me ages to hand quilt as I am working full time as well.

Deb said...





I am in 3 quilt-alongs this season, so I'd say my goal would be to finish those three (completely) before beginning another project. And when I do finish those 3, I have many WIPs to finish! Thanks for the chance to win a beautiful jelly roll and congratulations on your blogiversary.

I'm going to be making a charity quilt from the fabric that Myra and Cori sent me from Blue Meadow Designs. I hope also to try my hand at long arm quilting using the machine of a friend of a friend...we'll see!

Nice giveaway, and congrats on reaching this milestone!

Most important quilting goal? Finish my Christmas quilt before Thanksgiving!! I'd also like to make my son's goodnight monkey quilt. I've only made 2 quilts, so I think those are reasonable goals :) I'd love to win the mill house inn JR... I've been wanting to make something for my grandmother and that would go perfectly w/ her decor! Thanks

OMG, I just love the fabrics for your next project!! They are just gorgeous! Can't wait to see the final outcome. One of my goals this year is to actually finish up some of my projects!!

Deanna said...





Between Christmas and New Years I did a big clean on my sewing space and discovered that I had 15 works-in-progress. Ugly! I had no idea there were so many. So, my most important goal is to finish those. At this point, I have two finished, three at the machine quilter and one I am about half-way through hand quilting. BUT, if I had new fabric waiting for me, that would surely be great inspiration to really work hard. Thanks for the giveaway.

thestitchinchicken said...





Great fabrics! Some of my favorite! And you are on my blogroll! Congratulations on your 111th post! Cheryl

thestitchinchicken said...





My goal this year is to learn/practice free motion quilting. I've started practicing, but I see it is going to take a fair amount of work to have it look good enough to do it on a project that I would want to share with someone else!

Doina said...





This year I want to do quilting known in Romania because they are only a few people who work quilts.
Great giveaway!

Cindy from "It's a Sew Sew Day..." said...





What a generous giveaway! I would love to be included in the drawing!

My biggest goal of this year is to finish 2 of the 3 WIP's I have going on. I have been bloggin here, www.asewsewday.blogspot.com, if anyone would love to come by and see.

Happy Quilting!

Terry said...





I forgot to tell you what I want to learn this year!! Sorry! It's free motion quilting. I have the foot for my machine but I'm afraid to even try it!

Cindy from "It's a Sew Sew Day..." said...





I just became a follower also! Thanks again for the giveaway!

Jessica said...





My goal most pressing quilting goal this year is to finish a baby quilt for my little girl (she'll be 1 in March)! Her brother has a quilt, but it has been a little more challenging to get hers done.

What a neat giveaway!

free indeed said...





Love the colors of the mill house line. I'm using similar colors in a yoyo tablecloth that I want to be my ongoing project for the year. Maybe I can use the jellyroll to coordinate some valences or something else for the kitchen?

free indeed said...





I'm a follower already. Love coming back again and again to see what you are up to!

Can't Believe I'm Sewing said...





My goal for this year is to finish all the quilts I have started and the ones I have fabric sitting in my stash for. I also want to learn to free motion quilt. We'll see how it goes!!!

Rachel Locke said...





I really want to get better at my free motion quilting. I also want to make each of my kids (4) a quilt for their beds.

Liz B. said...





So generous of you! My two big quilting goals this year are to use up my stash and scraps, and to donate ten quilts to Project Linus. Already I have 4 quilt tops done, so I feel like I will definitely meet my goal! Thanks for the chance at your giveaway!

My goal this year is to finish a denim/white/red picnic quilt I have started, which has been in progress for a couple of years now. After that it is to make my very first queen-sized quilt for my hopechest.

~Hannah

Poppyprint said...





You are not giving away that jelly roll!!!! Ok, if you insist, I'll put my try in. This year I want to FINISH things. Like, a LOT of things that are just hanging around. Congrats on 111!!

Poppyprint said...





Second (greedy) entry here, for following along. So glad to have met you through DQS8!

passingdowncrazy said...





I'm going to get better at machine quilting!!!

And of course you're on my blogroll. Minnesotans need to stick together or we'll freeze!

Maria said...





Ok, evidently I'm incapable of reading directions. Leave a second entry....yes, you're on my blogroll! And I'm jealous that Eagle Creek is your LQS!

Susie said...





My biggest goal this year would be to actually find the TIME to do some quilting. Working full-time, going to school full-time, and taking care of my family cuts into my crafting time big time. *sigh*

Boy I wish I were independently wealthy. Then, I'd not have to work, no need to go back to school, nothing. Then I could focus on my family and have TONS of crafting time. LOL

Susie said...





Oh! And yep! I'm a follower. I have been for a bit. Love your blog. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Jenny said...





ohhh, i wish my lqs had such lovely fabrics in store...i get thimbleberries or civil war repro in abundance but thats about it...you picked a lovely batch!

my goal this year is to STOP buying and START using...ive been more of a fabric collecter vs. fabric user the month of January and I want that to stop! thanks for a chance at this yummy jelly roll!

James said...





Hi! I'm Linda quilting away in Montana; LOVE your Blog. CONGRATS! on 111! Way to go! What a SWEET GIVEAWAY! I'd love to learn free motion to finish my quilts. THANKS for sharing! Love,Linda

Needled Mom said...





I am a follower. The fabric that you selected is gorgeous!!! What will you do with it.

Crystal Hendrix said...





My biggest goal this year is to make a king zize quilt for my bed.

Susan said...





My most important goal is to stop buying SO much fabric and try to use up more of what I have. I'm feeling guilty and drowning in the stuff and I still want more! lol

I'm a follower already, but since I don't really NEED more fabric, I'm not going to leave another comment! :)

Happy Bloggyversary!

My most needed project to make this year is a quilt for my precious Granddaughter. Then I also have a lot of UFO's that need to be completed.
Thanks for a great giveaway.

Wonderful giveaway! I LOVE Jellyrolls!!

My biggest goal for 2010 is to finish my Dorinda quilt. She was my great, great, great, great grandmother who made a bazillion quilts. Four of her "daughters" are recreating one of her masterpieces, and I'm one of them. It is mostly applique with some intricate piecing. We've been working on it since Oct 2008. Come and see at dreamworthyquilts.blogspot.com.

Laurie said...





Woowee! First - love the fabric for a new quilt!! Bright and perfect for a Valentine project! I'm loving all these bright new colors - I always stuck with the traditional calicos - BUT - not anymore!! But, speaking of traditional - gotta love your prize jellyroll! That would work well for the quilt I want to do for myself - I'm finally going to keep the work I do this year!

I am already a follower :)

Laurie said...





Woops - forgot to tell you that that is one of my quilting goals this year - to keep some of my work rather than gifting it away :)
laurie

Meg said...





Ooh, Mill House! Nice!

I have several quilting goals this year, but the big one overall is to FINISH more projects! I am very good at racking up UFOs, but not so good at getting them quilted and done. I hate borders and basting, so I have to kind of force myself through those parts.

(Oh, and I always give my quilts away as gifts or to charities, so this is the year that I get a quilt of my own, dangit!)

Meg said...





And I've been a follower for several months now. :)

Gene Black said...





My goal for the year? Gee, to try all the products that I have got in my supply stash that I am "afraid" to use (like the Steam a Seam - for applique)

Gene Black said...





I am a follower and have been for a while.

Crystal Hendrix said...





I have you added on my blogger bar. I like it because I can see when you update!

Sue said...





My goal this year? ... I plan to alternate "new" quilts with UFO's this year. I really want to clean up some half-finished projects, but I can't bear not to start new ones. So this seems like a good compromise.

I am a follower and enjoy your blog.

If I win, I'll use the fabric to make a charity quilt with my guild.

Ellyn said...





I can't wait to see what you come up with for valentines day! lovely fabrics. This year I plan to "use up what I've got" & also to open an etsy store.

Ellyn said...





oh & I am a follower of your terrific blog!

Jo said...





My goal for the year is to do a "harder" quilt. Something with curves or lots of pieces...something that is more of a family heirloom rather than just a quilt. I want to be a bit more frugal too...

Jo said...





You are on my blogroll and I read your blog regularly...keep up the great work!

Jennifer said...





Quilting Goal: We are transitioning between toddler bed and crib to bunk beds for our boys, and I want to make new twin size quilts for them, I also want a new sewing machine this year, I'm hoping there is enough money in the tax return.

Jennifer said...





Oh and I'm also a follower, and keep track of you through my google reader.

Vivian said...





My most important quilting goal for the year is to gather more fabric stash. I know it sounds silly but I need more! I've been quilting for a year and I've been purchasing fabric for each class I've taken (oh man, when I discovered this I signed up for everything I could...raggy, paper piecing, triangles, hand applique, etc...I want all the technical down so the rest of my life I can just have fun and bust all the rules). So everything I've purchased so for I've pretty well used! So that's my goal. Collect fabric...once my next three classes are over LOL.

Vivian said...





Hi I'm back! Just wanted to say that yes I am a follower, and I do enjoy reading your blog, I must have discovered it about 8 months ago and check in often to see what you're up to!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...





My most important quilting goal for this year will be to finish the Joseph's Coat quilt I have started. It involves a lot of hand stitching. Congratulations on your 100-111 post Karen!

Erin said...





Congrats on the big milestone! I've been enjoying your blog for quite some time now, thank you :)

My quilting goal for this year is to begin working on more intricate/difficult quilting patterns. Step away from the straight line quilting! Idealy, my lifetime quilting goal is to have my own long arm quilter.

Erin said...





And I have been following you with my google reader since September!

tracey said...





Congrats on 100 posts!

My biggest quilting/sewing goal of the year is to make/finish one project every month. As part of that goal, I want to make sure I take photos of all my projects and document start/end times.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

tracey said...





oh and you are also on my blogroll. since before christmas i believe, not even sure how i ended up here - through another crafty site i'm sure.

But have enjoyed keeping up with your adventures.

joanne lendaro said...





LOVE gift cards! Aren't they fun?

Congrats on the lllth post...I'm a follower, and love your new topper,btw.

Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

Brenda said...





I have plans to do a Paper piecing project, that will be new for me. I have never done paper piecing before. Love the fabrics you picted out for Valentine's day.

Brenda said...





You are a favorite on my blog, I loved keeping up with you.

Bev C said...





Hello, I am trying to finish of some ufo's and use up supplies I have on hand and most importantly for me to remain motivated with my sewing every month of the year. Happy days.

Heidi said...





My Father in Law passed away last May - my quilty goal this year is to make a quilt for EACH grandkid from some of his clothes. He was always in jeans and flannel. And the Grandkids range from age 6 - 30yrs old. I need to get them all done by Christmas.

tong said...





My goal this year is to finish more quilts and use my stash more instead of buying new fabrics without actually having projects in mind for them. Thanks for the giveaway!

tong said...





I also follow your blog!

dearmrsreese said...





I plan to make two quilts for my twin daughters.

Relish said...





Hi Karen. Congratulations on so many posts - it's a HUGE achievement!!!
What a challenge - to think of my MOST important goal... I have two. One is to make a quilt for our bed - I have made many quilts but they have all been given away so I would like to make and finish something for myself and the other is to host a swap. I have put the swap plans in motion and hope that it leads to the first goal as I will something for keeps at the end.

Relish said...





Oh, and I have a link to you on my blog too.

anna said...





Goal? to use `good' fabric in a quilt-applique.
I have never used `good' fabric for my sewing or quilting. I always stay in the 4.99 range-I have made my kids clothes within that. BUT I dream about the `other fabric'. What a quilt would be like. the textures & bright colors difference can be seen thru the computer....uughhhhh

Susana said...





My goal is to finish up baby's room (she's one, so it's about time!): cushions, cushions, curtains and a quilted "landing pad" (she has a floor bed, montessori-style, and a tendency to dive). The most important, I was just doodling the plan for it, is to get the quilt I made for her actually quilted.

Quilt Hollow said...





I believe I've been a follower for quite awhile. :-) I did however add you to my blog roll so that everybody can visit you more often!!
My goal this year is to make as many quilts as possible using up some of my older fabrics that I loved way back then with some new ones coming out this year. I usually gift many of my quilts as RAK (Random Acts of Kindness)

Susana said...





I am a follower of your blog. Thanks so much for the chance!

Kaye Prince said...





My most important goal is actually to learn how to free motion quilt! My Mum bought me a walking foot for my machine for Christmas (she said she's learned more about quilting than she ever needed to in doing Christmas shopping for me) and I'm very excited to try it out! I'm sure it'll take me a bit to even try it out since it took me forever to finally build up the nerve to even straight quilt with my machine. We'll see what happens and thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Kaye Prince said...





I'm also a follower of your blog!

Sarah said...





I want to start and finish quilting my large double wedding ring quilt. The completed top has been sitting here for a year, and I really want to get it DONE!

pixie13 said...





I want to learn how to do round pieces. I've got straight edges & triangles down, but the curved pieces defeat me so far. Thanks for the great giveaway!

My quilting goal for this year is to start selling my quilts so that I can fund my fabric addiction!

Gladys said...





Hola, Karen! Qué bellos regalos! Me encantaría entrar en su sorteo! Mi proyecto preferido para este año es terminar Mi Primer Baltimore que estoy REALIZANDO como un BOM, Y también acabo de comenzar mi Sampler! Yo debo aprender de las maestras generosas que hay en la Red que, Mediante la lista de materiales o SAL, ya que en mi ciudad no hay instructores y en mi país no es hobby muy difundido de la ONU, lamentablemente! Asi que aprendo muchas cosas a la vez, pero esos dos son los que se han tornado mas importantes! Gracias por DARNOS la chance de ganar esa maravilla de tejido!
¡Ah, soy seguidora de su blog desde el año pasado ya que adoro sus trabajos! Que tenga una gran semana! Un abrazo!

allison said...





Well, Karen, you know me...I am not yet a quilter or not much of one. I haven't finished my first one yet. I would like to learn more about how to quilt....so that is my goal.

allison said...





Yes, I am a follower...

Betty said...





My goal for the year is to keep trying different things- new techniques, different style quilts, different color choices, new designs. Little steps at a time. So far, I've managed some new tricks and it's fun.

Janet S said...





My goal is to get a few runners made this year!

Country Mom said...





My goal this year is to keep up with my BOM's and not fall behind. I am a follower. Dee

EmileeHope said...





Wow! Very nice prize!! I think my biggest sewing goal of the year is to learn how to use my sewing machine that also has some embroidery stitches! Hubby got it for me for Christmas in 2008 and I still haven't really tried it out...I am intimidated by it!! Also I want to try some applique and paper piecing, and I want to learn how to free motion quilt (just learned how to machine quilt last year) not sure if I will get to all of that this year, but I would love to! I am also a follower of your blog.

EmileeHope said...





I just reread the email and saw that I was supposed to leave a second comment if I was a follower...I am great at directions!! =) So here is my second comment!!
