I'M ON STASH MANICURE TODAY!! (There's a giveaway involved!!)

(Edit: Comments are now closed)
YESSSS I got to do a guest post over on Stash Manicure! Hop on over and see what the buzz is all about. I had the opportunity to share my 365 Day Challenge quilt. It was a daunting task but I am so glad I did it. Lots of fun. I won't spoil it by re-writing about it here, so you must go to Stash Manicure and read it.

I said I had a giveaway now didn't I? OK here's the dealio. It is for a Moda Bella Neutral Basics Layer Cake that is up for grabs, so you will have a great start to your own 365 Day quilt.

This is what you need to do for a chance to win, you must do all of them.
1. Leave a comment on Stash Manicure and tell me you did so.
2. Become a follower of Stash Manicure, and tell me you did that too.
3. Become a follower of my blog.

I do hope you all enjoy the post and I look forward to hearing from all of you soon. XOP

Yes, it would be a great start for the 365 day quilt. I thought it would be adorable to make for a new baby and record something about their life each day for their first year :)

Loved your post over at Stash Manicure. I am a follower of them and have signed up to follow you and your wonderful blog. Like I said at Stash Manicure, it's a great way to track a year, and I think a pieced back would be a fun reversable quilt. Thanks for the inspiration!

Laura said...

Okay, I left a comment on Stash Manicure after reading your lovely post this morning. It is a very interesting idea.

Dee said...

That is one of the most unique quilt tops I have seen! What a terrific idea to get your thoughts out and on fabric of all things!! I wonder how well it washes though?

Thinking of making one when my hubby is deployed later this year in the summer with my 3 yr old son:)

Sara said...

I left a comment on Stash Manicure giving you some love:)

Laura said...

Maybe I could commit to writing once a week? Of course, I have a blog I haven't written on in three months so maybe once a week is aiming too high for me! I so admire your dedication!

Sara said...

Should have been following Stash Manicure awhile ago!! Now I am though;)

This is so cool! Can't wait! I'm a follower of both blogs and have commented on both. Hope I win the giveaway as both my sister and I are starting this July 1st! Thank you for sharing!

Quilter Kathy said...

I won't be in the draw because I don't do the follower thing, but wanted to let you know how much I loved seeing your finished 365. I am happy to see this project in blogland since it inspires me to finish my own. I didn't make it for the full year, but it was fun and is a great diary of a year in the life of my growing family.

Marie said...

Good morning, Mama Sparks, I have just left a comment on Stash Manicure and was so excited to read your posting this morning - it is very interesting.

I love the idea of a journal quilt, but the year is already into the first month. I would love a weekly journal as I forget days - lol! Then added little stitcheries could fill in with inspirational fabrics. A heritage piece for the grandies.

While I absolutely love your quilt, which is a true family heirloom ... I honestly don't know if I could persevere enough to get it done ... I'd find myself catching up on several days at a time, thereby negating the purpose of the 365 day theme. lol Best of luck with making the others for your other kids!! :) Thank you for sharing!

I love the idea, just do not know if I could pull it off or not. Would not want another unfinished project. You sure did an awesome job on yours though! And you have nice penmanship also.

Marcia W. said...

The layer cake would be a great start on a 365 quilt, or a variation. Just a few hours ago my grandniece was born at 7 lb 13 oz. This would be a wonderful idea to use for her quilt, if the first time Mom and Dad can find the time. They are so nervous. I enjoyed your post on Stash Manicure, and the attribution to your source of inspiration. Thanks for the giveaway and the tutorial.

Okay, I did all that way required. Now I hope I win the prize. You are always so busy, I don't know how you do it. I will try to catch up on the 365 project and join in. I best get started before I forget what happened earlier in the month.

Happy New Year and thanks for the opportunity to win some lovely fabrics.

Love the idea of a 'journal quilt'. I did post on Stash Manicure where I am already a follower and am now a follower here. Each day I find new blogs where people are so generous with their knowledge and ideas. I have tried to encourage my friends to give blogland a try - there is so much here!

REALLY neat idea to have notes for each day of the year on a quilt. Would be neat to do a pregnancy baby quilt on pastels with notes to the wee one each day - that would be a real keepsake! Or for a soldier away on dute...

Quilt n Queen said...

Great job with your guest post on Stash Manicure... when DH retires...I'm going to start 'our' retirement journal quilt... just couldn't do the first idea... moving back to Canada journal....it could be a wee bit sad and tear stained...I want a happy journal. If you pick my number....please pick again.....I feel I'm a winner already.....every time I read your blog..... and it goes without saying I feel the same about Stash Manicure's blog. I'm a winner with every post I read. Thanks for sharing. lol

Wow, I just came back from Stash Manicure and I am so excited about this quilt. I plan to start my "Quilt Journal" as soon as we finish our renovations (about 3 weeks from now I should have the house back together) and can get back to my sewing room. It was a wonderful post and a truly great idea. Thanks you so much. I even popped over to Leanne's to see her's. Hugs...

I wasn't quite sure how you want to record each of your questions for your giveaway so I am putting all the entries in one post. I am a follower of your blog- I have been for awhile now and I always enjoy seeing what things you are up to.

I enjoyed reading about the making of your 365 day quilt- it would be an interesting way of recording a diary of a year in one's life.

I also am a follower on Stash Manicure and I did leave a comment on her blog.
Thanks for the opportunity to win the nice layer cake.
Warmest regards,
