5 Year Blogiversary Sale and Prizes


Five years of blogging have already come and gone.  I can hardly believe it.  I so appreciate you hanging out here with me!!!  Your comments over the years have been so encouraging.  As a thank you to all my followers and visitors, I wanted to have a Blogiversary Sale!

First of all, we are going to have 25% off all books and patterns.  To receive the discount on the pattern, just enter the code patternsale (all one word).  The books are already marked down, no code is needed.

Secondly, we are offering 10% off on the Here Fishy Fishy Kits and some of the yardage. (again, no code needed).

Lastly, I have added a bunch of finished quilts for sale.  My studio is quickly running out of room  and to make room, I have almost 30 quilts listed that I would be willing to part with.  They have never been used and are listed at excellent prices.  In fact, some have already been selling before I’ve even gotten a chance to announce the sale.


I know quilters are more into making quilts than buying them (ya think?) but maybe you don’t have time to get much quilting done yourself, or maybe I have a quilt done up in a fabric line that you always wanted, or maybe several are beyond your current skill level or maybe one of these quilts goes just perfectly in your house  – all of these are good reasons to go shopping!

Click here to visit our online store.  Refer to the sidebar on the right to shop specific categories, like books, patterns, fabric, or quilts for sale.

In addition to shopping, there will be 4 nice prizes given away.  The prizes include:

And a couple starter packs of Fishy fabrics  (7 half yard cuts in each pack)


Just leave a comment for a chance to enter the giveaway.  I will announce the winners next week and the sale will run through next Friday.  Have a great holiday weekend!  Thanks again for being a part of this blog!!!

  263. Diane says:

    I need to go shopping and buy some ‘here fishy fishy’ fabric. When you find a cute boy fabric, you should buy it. Hard to find boy fabric thats cute. I love your fabrics and patterns, and have bought some of the patterns youve used in knitting. Now, just need time to do the fun stuff.

  264. Regina says:

    I am reading in you blog since a few days. Since I am from Germany, where quilting is not that popular than in the USA, its somehow weird for me, what you manage to produce out of some fabrics. I love your quilts:)
    But I have one request: Since the whole blog is all in one page, I cannot read the older postings. My computer is loading a long time to download the older postings and then it always crashes after some time. Would it be possible to integrate more pages that it would be possible to read it all?
    I have no idea if you also ship to Germay, if so, I would be delighted if I would win something…
