Happy Blogiversary to Me! {GIVEAWAY}

Yes, that's right.. it's been a whole year already.. funnily enough it feels like a lot longer!

As promised, I'm throwing another giveaway to celebrate 1 year and 100 followers. If you're looking for my Quilting Gallery Blog Hop giveaway for an Aurifil Thread Card, check this post!

Today I have the pleasure of offering up a PDF pattern from one of my FAVOURITE fabric and pattern designers, Camille Roskelley! But which one? Well, that's up to you!

Camille has some of the most adorable patterns, like...

and my all time favourite..

To enter, you'll need to go to Camille's webstore and tell me which pattern you would love to win. One comment, that's it! I've decided that this giveaway will only be open to followers because I think that loyalty should be rewarded :)

Don't forget to leave me your email address, just in case you're a no-reply blogger - I'd hate for you to miss out because I couldn't reach you! The giveaway closes one week from today, on Thursday 6th September at 7pm Western Australian Standard Time.

So what have I discovered in my year of blogging? Well, for a start I've discovered that there are some amazing people out there in the blogosphere! I've made friends with some gorgeous, talented people, some of whom I've had the pleasure of meeting in real life. Through blogging I discovered the Quilt Club Australia facebook group, and through the QCA I've joined a bee group, and swaps and travelling stashes. I've also participated in other online blog based swaps. I've learnt how to use twitter and flickr. I've written tutorials. I've participated in blog hops. I've learnt new techniques, and along with my new skills I've developed more confidence. I've discovered that there's more to fabric than just "big box" stores!

I don't think I could accurately list all the things I've picked up along the way! Being a part of the blogging and wider online quilting community has changed the way I think about my craft. I am so lucky to have "met" you all, and learnt from the talented people around me.

On that note, I'll leave you with a few of my favourite finishes from the last year :)

    Being only relatively new to quilting - I am love with the Spool pattern on Camille's webstore. It is gorgeous. I think it would be perfect for my rainbow charms that I have been collecting. But than again - I would love to see that pattern in blues too.

  22. Congratulations on your first year! Great job.
    I am a fairly new follower.
    My favorite pattern which I've actually got on my wish list is her Christmas Stocking pattern named "Merry". I just love the way her stockings look. (of course, I have a number of others too, like Swoon, but that stocking is top on that list)
