10 Years Celebratory Giveaway

Posted on: October 4th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Thank you ALL!!!

We are having a GIVEAWAY!!!

It’s time to celebrate YOU!

I began this little blog back in 2012, keeping a diary of my quilting journey, while searching to connect with the online quilting community. That lovely group of online supporters and encouragers that I have been blessed to come to know, are people just like you. And I wouldn’t have made it this far without each and every one of YOU!

Thank you all for following along.

No matter which method you choose!

My last giveaway was to celebrate 10K followers on Instagram. And not everyone uses Instagram. This GIVEAWAY is open to everyone, who leaves a comment on my Instagram post, Facebook post or here on this blog post.

I am so excited to announce we will be having monthly drawings, beginning with these fabulous prizes for October!

There will be 3 Grand Prize drawings for October.

First Place Prize is this Grumpy Cat quilt PLUS a Paper Pattern Pack.

Second Place Prize is this BOO Kitty quilt PLUS a Paper Pattern Pack.

Third Place Prize is this Cat Fish quilt PLUS a Paper Pattern Pack.

10 Runner Up Prizes of 5 Paper Patterns each

100 Sew Fresh Fan Prizes of 5 PDF Patterns each

WAIT!!! There’s MORE!

All during the month of October, all PDF patterns in my Etsy shop will be 25% off!


I will be adding sponsors from fabulous quilt shops for the great big giveaway on Christmas Eve – the same day as my very first blog post, 10 years ago.

This October GIVEAWAY is open to everyone who leaves a comment on my Instagram post, Facebook post or here on this blog post.

Let’s celebrate Octobrrr!

This month’s draw will take place October 31st.

Comments will be closed during the day of the drawing. Winners will be announced soon after and November’s Celebration will be introduced.

PS. I had previously been using Google’s free feedburner service for following by email. They have discontinued their services, so I have a new free email service for following called
