Party Finale!

It's Day Five. . . and it's a BIG one!!!

I wanted to give all of you a Big HUG and THANK each one of you for all of the Well Wishes, the Presents, the FUN & GAMES, the Good Company, Great Desserts and the Wonderful Memories. I sure had a lot of fun celebrating my blogiversary with all of YOU and hope you had a bit of fun along the way!

Well, the last GIVEAWAY for my Blogiversary is pretty special and I wanted to save the best for last. So, here's my last Big SURPRISE!!!

I'm giving away a QUILT!

Yes, you heard me right. . . a QUILT!

Now, don't get too excited (I wish I could do more) it's just a small Table Quilt for both Spring and Easter. The quilt measures 32" x 32" and it's really cute and will look adorable sitting on your table with an Easter Basket in the center of it. I can see it now!

Here are pictures of the Quilt I'm giving away!







Read the instructions below for posting your comment for this giveaway. It's probably a bit different than you're used to. You can post a comment until Tuesday, March 24th at 12 Midnight after which time I will have Random.org do the honors of picking a winner. I will then let you by email if you've won the quilt. Good Luck Everyone!

Instructions for the Quilt Drawing: Please read carefully before posting a comment!

I've put a lot of thought into this and here is what I came up with. You each must count up your points, those points will become the number of entries you each will get for the quilt.

Here's what I need each of you to do. Look at the list below and do the math for me by adding up your points. I don't have time to do it for everyone and it could take me weeks of research. So, I thought it would be easier if those that want to enter the quilt giveaway were willing to do the math for themselves. Just remember to leave your number of entries when you post a comment. Thanks for your help!


Quilt Giveaway Point System:

  • You get one point for each day you left a comment.
  • You get one point if you won a prize.
  • You get two points if you are currently listed as a follower.
  • You get one point if you add yourself as a follower.
  • You get two points if "Bitty Bits" is currently listed on your google reader.
  • You get one point if you add me to your google reader.
  • You get two points if you've made something from one of my tutorials.
  • You get one point if you got all the questions right on the get to know me game.
  • You get one point if you were in the top 10 favorite presents list.
  • You get one point if you've already made the Coca-Cola Cake.
  • You get five points if you blog about it on your blog.
  • And you get two points because I appreciate all of you playing along!
Have FUN doing the math. Remember, YOU are RESPONSIBLE for telling me how many points you have. I know I can trust ALL of you because you're QUILTER's and Quilter's are Honest, Kind, Creative, Loving, Committed, Thoughtful, and Supportive!


Thank You Again for a GREAT Year of Blogging.
I look forward to the next year, too!

And can I add up a point for all the comments I've left since you started blogging??? Hahaha -- just giving you a hard time.

Snickerdoodle said...

This has been so much fun. Congratulations on your blogiversary. I LOVE your blog. I check it everday to see what creative things you are doing. I have not made it yet but I have bought all the fabric and ruler for the kaleidoscope quilt. I don't have a blog so I only have 7 points. The quilt is precious.

Pat said...

Love the table topper. You have been very generous. I hate to see this party come to an end. I have had so much fun. I have a total of 13 points. I am not sure that I like that number!!!

Hi, what a fun time i have had this week and this is a great idesa, the quilt is just beautiful and I have 7 points. thanks for all the fun!

Cindy said...

Instead of YOU giving a BIG hug, we should all give you one because you've been so kind and generous; not only with your prizes but also with all your wonderful tutorials, photos, recipes, tips and techniques and links.

What a cute table topper, Kim. You really have outdone yourself on your Blogiversary. It's YOUR special time and WE reap the benefits. Blessings to you.

If I did the math correctly, I believe my total is 12.

Seth, Sarah and the kids said...

Woah!! You are too kind!! That quilt is amazing!! SO springy and cheerful!

If I added correctly my points are 6...... this was super fun to be a part of. Thanks for inviting us all!

Fiesta said...

4 points for me.

Tozz said...

Hi Kim....I am sitting here with my mouth open wide with awe at your adorable quilt!! I so love it and I have scored 16 and not sure if it should be 17 as I am not sure if I got all the questions right about knowing you. I sort of got them right like I said, not sure if all are right. Anyway....thank you for a very much for a very entertaining few days and for the wonderful prize I won. I look forward to many more years of reading your blog. Oh and I do intend to do one of your tutorials very soon. Congrats Kim and lots of hugs to you :)

Joanna said...

5 points for me! What a great idea, and what a lovely quilt!!

Ruby said...

You are so generous!! Thanks for entering me in your drawing. I think I have about 5 points?

Trisha said...

Wow, Kim! You sure know how to throw a party. I have had a lot of fun. Looking forward to another great year on your blog. Your quilt is adorable. I love the prairie points and the fabric in this quilt. So pretty! BTW, I got eight points.

mau said...

How gorgeous is that mini quilt..I only have 5 points but that's alright cause I just love your blog. Just hoping that the Random thing picks me cause I have the perfect small dining table just right for it, me and my hubby would really love it. crossing fingers and toes..LOL

Linda said...

7 points for me, and such a sweet topper.

Amy Sorensen said...

OK, I've resisted leaving a comment during your entire give away because I hate leaving my first comment during a contest! BUT I just couldn't resist that table topper. SO cute! I'm not sure how I stumbled onto your blog, but I've been reading it ever since you posted your charm pack tutorial, which was the answer to a "what should I do with THIS fabric?" problem I was having. I think it was less than two days that I'd started making my project!

At any rate, I've got six points. Thanks for all your pointers and tips. Your blog is a great resource for me!

Kathie said...

Haven't had enough coffee yet to do the math its about 4am!
I have you on my bloglines ( I don't use google reader)
I have followed your blog for a long time,
ok, so I am counting that as google reader !
8 pts for me.
Kathie
this has been fun! LOVE the quilt your giving away beautiful and the easter basket is just so pretty
thanks

Cynthia said...

What a fun anniversary! I have been following your blog for a long time, I love what you post! I have a perhaps "warped" (not for a quilter I guess) goal of making a quilt out of every concoction of color. I don't have anything with beautiful soft pastels. That is on my list. The table topper is very detailed looking! I have 15 points. I haven't been able to make any of your projects because I have too many of my own lined up. It helps to have deadlines, I am able to get more done that way. Looking forward to many more interesting and inspiring posts!

Pat said...

What a pretty table topper and how nice of you to give that as the finale prize. It's BEAUTIFUL!!! Anyway...my total of points is 11. (I'm thinking those of us who WOULD have tried the cake but can't because of diets should get the extra point for that....LOL...and then I'd have 12 points...because I sure DID want to try it.) :) Happy Blogiversary again!!! (And many more.)

shelley said...

Looks like I missed the best anniversary party ever! 0 points for me since I just found you this morning, but ... your quilt is beautiful and I'm wondering if there is a pattern? I love the fabrics you chose!

Kate/Massachusetts said...

This has been such fun! Thank you for all the chances to enter! My magic number is 9! That cake was to die for! I had to bring pieces around to neighbors 'cuz it was "talking" to me!

Kaye said...

Kim, as a new person to the blogging (Jan) I am in awe at the workmanship &time you put in to your blogs. Not to mention your recipes, tutorials and sharing of ideas. This past week has to rank up there with THE BEST. Your wit and bubbly personality surely have shown through. Thank you for a great and fun week. Happy Blogaversary. Looking forward to next anniversary

Kaye said...

Happy Blogiversary and wish you many more - love your blog. Only 4 points for me, so hopefully random.org is feeling the love for me :)
Your little quilt is fabulous and can't believe you would be parting with it...

Susan said...

I know I have more than one entry, but I'm too lazy to do the math! Just count my entry once and know that it comes with very happy blogiversary wishes!

Cindy said...

I'm just stopping by to say I hope you're taking a much deserved rest after your very busy blogaversary event. Don't forget to give YOURSELF a prize!

Have a blessed day....Hugs.

~D Spack~ said...

Ok Kim, I love the quilt and yes it would look lovely on my table! I get 5 points, hopefully that is enought to do the trick! I haven't been home, but want to make that cake first chance I get, maybe tonight after church! Thanks so much!

quiltmom said...

HI KIm,
I am pretty sure I posted once and while I don't have you on google reader, I do have you on my blog list as a link so I am guessing my points would be 4. One only needs to have one chance to win such a lovely prize ( it is a very pretty table topper). Thank you for entering my name in your draw.
I hope you have had a terrific blogging giveaway event and had lots of fun.
Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,
Anna

I am just getting back into quilting and have gotten so many ideas from the quilting blogs I have found so far. Would love to try your charm pack quilt and when I get brave the kaleidoscope quilt.
