New Blog Giveaway

In celebration of my new blog....(which is going to mean way too much time spent on the computer )I have decided to have a giveaway! I have a new quilt kit that I don't think that i will ever make. My taste in colors has now gone to soft pastels. I don't know why but I find myself buying those.

Please forgive my photography......I am really bad at it. The kit is a Cotton Way Friendship Star pattern with a mix of fabrics from Moda, Thimbleberries, and P&B Textiles. The finished size is 60" by 68". Please leave me a quick message telling me your favorite colors to use in a quilt and I will pull a name on Friday. I just hope people will come ;-)


  1. Welcome to the blog world. It's fun!

    As for colors in a quilt...I've never met a color I don't like, except gray, and gray isn't a color!

  2. as far as colors go any shade of blue or red would be great to use in a quilt

  3. I am impressed with your blog! Just getting around to seeing what those are all about!

    I am an earth colors person, no bling or wows for me.

  4. Congrats on your new blog! You will meet a whole new group of cyber pals blogging, it's great fun (and yes very time consuming)!

    Funny, I started out with pastels and have since moved on to warm, earth tones. I've been told my quilts are boring :). Red is my favorite color, and if I have to make a quilt without red in it I have a hard time working on it!

    P.S. You need to enable the Name/URL option for commenting, a lot of folks won't be able to leave a comment without that option.

  5. I've just started blogging also and joined several google and yahoo groups at the same time. Like CJ said, there is whole new group of cyber pals blogging, I'm glad I started.

    Probably my favorite quilting colors are reds whites, and blues. My home is lots of greens, golds, and browns. So I guess it depends on if I'm making for it my home or for a gift. If it's a gift it's probably red white and blue.

  6. Cathy,
    I started a blog several months ago. It has been fun but my photography needs to improve. I belong to several yahoo groups that have been the source of valuable information. Good luck.

  7. As far as colors go, I just like contrast, I guess? So, I guess I like color that is well done.

    I love your little dog, so cute. Still a puppy?

    Quilting blogs, I can see I am going to be in trouble and hope I will learn lots here.
    Congratulations on a new endeavor.


  8. Congrats on your blog! The colors I seem to love vary greatly. One minute I am loving deep, rich fall colors but then in the next minute I spy some great vibrant bright colors and I fall in love with.

  9. Cathy,
    Congrats on your new blog. It's a great tool to express yourself and hope you find much enjoyment from it. I am sure your readers/fellow bloggers will. As far as quilting colors go, I tend to like peach/salmon/green colors. Maybe throw in a little Williamsburg blue.

    Love your cuddly dog. Aren't small dogs the greatest!
