A little celebratory giveaway

The other day I realized I missed my blogaversary at the beginning of this month. It's been one year for my little blog and I still can't believe I actually have people who come and read what I have to say! I appreciate all of you who stop in to read my ramblings so I thought I'd do a little giveaway to show my appreciation.

At the same time, Monday is my big ultrasound where I found out the gender of my baby (provided they cooperate!). So in honor of that I'm giving away two fat quarter stacks.

A pink one:

And a blue one:

Here's what you do:

Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite fabric line right now is for a boy or girl quilt (a little market research for my own selfish purposes). You do need to be or become a follower (sorry, it's a follower appreciation giveaway!). And if you want, you can guess if I'm having a boy or girl.

One entry per person and I will pick two winners. If you are a no-reply blogger, please make sure I have a way to reach you.

I'll be closing the giveaway on Monday at 2pm, eastern time and I'll announce the winners shortly after.

I'll guess Girl! And how about some Sew Cherry for a girly quilt?? Good luck at the US and happy blogiversary!

Laura said...

I'm guessing girl too, and my fave right now is Its a Girl Thing pink/gray line.

Tricia said...

Have you seen Children at Play by Sarah Jane? I love that line. There is a cute family tree panel (if it's a girl!).

I hope the baby cooperates for you! I'm going to guess girl also!

Mary said...

I just love Prince Charming by Tula Pink and Terrain by Kate Spain...I wonder if they can play nice together? Probably noy. LOL!

I am a follower and I will guess a boy. :)

Oh I think Little Apples would be sweet for a little girls quilt. I also love Anne Kelle's prints, some of those would be sweet for a baby boy.

My vote is boy but I was wrong in guessing the gender with both mine, which were both surprises 'til they arrived into this world :)

elflyn said...

I'm a follower and I am also putting in a vote for Children at Play range! Love it!

Good luck at the ultrasound and Happy Blogaversary.

Laura @ Needles, Pins and Baking Tins said...

Children at play is my favourite kiddy line out at the moment, and its perfect for either a boy or a girl! I guess boy... but only because everyone else guess girl! Good luck on the gender scan!

hueisei said...

Congratulation! I guess ia a boy :)
Hmm.. Little Apples?? Perfect for baby quilt...

Kristen said...

I love the children at play line! It's so sweet (especially the family tree panel!).
I'm a follower of your wonderful blog!
And good luck at your ultrasound...my guess is a boy!

angela said...

Thank you for the giveaway. Right now I am loving Children at Play by Sarah Jane and Little Apples by Aneela Hoey. I also found this fabulous Japanese Lego fabric by Kokka called Hello my Friend that is so cute. I'm really looking forward to the release of Cutebots this fall. There's never enough fabric for little boy projects!

Anita said...

I think Terrain would make a beautiful modern quilt for a little girl!

I follow. thank you for a lovely giveaway. =)

A.J. Dub. said...

I have not really explored fabric to make baby quilts, although I should since I have 5 friends who are having babies soon. I love Sew Cherry and that would make a cute girl quilt with all the sweet gingham.
Twirl has some cutesy prints in it, not my style, but fun colors anyway. And Pezzy Print is fun too.
And I am guessing you have a boy. :)

twelfthzodiac said...

Heirloom for a girl...!
I just bought Zoe Pearn's Alphabet Soup to make a quilt for my nephew...'boy' fabrics are trickier to find for sure!

Grace said...

I'm going to guess...a boy :)

I love that pink set! <3<3<3

I'm a follower :)

I love the Strawberry fields by Fig Tree and Moda collection for a girl :)

Leila said...

Congrats! If baby doesn't cooperate you could make something out of Treasures and Tidbits. I love their bright cheery colors.

Sarah said...

I love the Prince Charming by Tula Pink! I will guess boy, I love that blue set of fabric! Thank you so much!

Melinda said...

I love Sarah Jane at Play! I follow on Google Reader.

Patti said...

Congratulations! Great boy and girl fabrics. I like Zoo Alphabet Soup and Circus Alphabet Soup by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake. Thanks for having this giveaway!

Marci Girl said...

I'm not going to guess if it is boy or girl, because I don't have a clue or even a guess! Favorite fabric lines - girl would have to be Sarah Jane at play and boy would have to be Jen Ski Aldo to Zippy, I love the panel associated with this line!

I sure hope baby cooperates! Good luck!

I generally don't do children's fabrics. My newest fabric love is Moroccan Mirage. I love the colors and patterns. They are so fun and bright.

Tiffany said...

I guess boy. I guess that I should change my fabric choice now...since it's pink...
But I like fancy promenade. http://www.fatquartershop.com/store/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?sid=64079231050386407&Store_id=499&page_id=23&Item_ID=54364&Parent_Ids=

I think it would make a super cute quilt with the yellow and pink colors!

Jan said...

I love the children at play line! It's great for a boy or a girl
I'm a follower! My guess is a girl.

Rebecca said...

I guess girl and for a girl quilt I'm LOVING Ruby :) For a boy I'd definitely use the boy colorway(s) of Children at Play - such a great line! Thanks for the giveaway and look forward to your news :D

Rebecca said...

So exciting ~ all the best with your ultrasound!

I have a few favourite boy lines, and I am pretty picky about nothing flowery in them, because after 3 girls I had enough girly prints in my stash! Riley Blake releases some great boy lines ~ All Star & All Star 2, and they have about 6 more boy lines on their coming soon page. I also like Animal Party by Amy Schimler.
For girls, the choices are pretty endless. I would pick which colours you want, and then find a line from there.

And I follow :) Congrats on your blogaversary!

Amorette said...

love that girl stack! i think that a great boy quilt could be made from the 1001 peeps line from lizzy house- the blues and greens are perfect, and the graphics would be fun to look at for a baby!

audreypawdrey said...

Love the girl stack, and I am loving the Children at Play line!

Garilyn said...

I like anything from Me and My sister for Moda. I love the colors for girls.
I'm a new follower!

Katie B. said...

Have you seen the new Fly a Kite line that's coming out in January? It's really cute, and it has boy and girl colors.

Good luck with the ultrasound! I'm guessing boy.

Melanie said...

I'm going to guess boy because I love little boys!

My favorite children's line right now is Children at Play, but you also can't go wrong with anything by Ann Kelle. Perfect for boys and girls! Congrats on the new baby! What an exciting time for you!

Monica said...

Right now I'm really loving Fairy Tale Friends by American Jane. It would be perfect for a boy or girl. Hideaway by Lauren and Jessi Jung is also pretty fabulous.

I think you're having a boy because boys are wonderful!

Catskill Quilter said...

Congrats on your blogaversary! I am a regular follower!

Jovanna said...

I saw some cute pink & grey for girls that have elephants, also a line for boys by Micheal Miller fabrics. I think you are going to have a girl. :-)

Candice said...

I'd pick some of Ann Kelle's prints for a boy- the are so fun!! And I still love Ruby or Hoo's in the Forest for a girl :)

Jacey said...

How sweet! I didn't realize you'd only been blogging for a year! Congrats on the anniversary, and thanks for sharing some fabrics. :) Hmm, so I love Little Apples, and I really love It's a Hoot, which I think is pretty gender-neutral. And I think Pooches and Pickups is pretty cute as well.

Crystal said...

I'm going to guess Boy because you put it second, like you didn't want it to be obvious, lol. Armchair psychology.

My fave line right now for a little girls quote is Sophie - my daughter picked it out online, but I haven't seen it in person yet. I love the bright color combos.

LJ said...

Congratulations - doublely - for the anniversary of the blog and the new baby, especially the new baby! I'm making my 8th grandchild's baby quilt and I'm using Lollipop, Sandy Gervais, by Moda. Yep, it's pretty un-gender cuz they're waiting for the surprise. So...I did want the quilt done before the baby is 2 so that collection was my choice. Of course, I love it.
Girl????? But, for goodness sakes, all babies are wonderful.

Home Designs by Amanda said...

I don't really use kids fabric, I did order some Moda fabric to make my youngest daughter a quilt for Christmas, but it is Fresh Flowers by Deb Strain. Its bright nice colors and not to babyish to grow with her.

If you'd like to see the beginnings of the quilt, here the link.

Hope that you're feeling well during this part of your pregnancy!

Pam said...

I just saw a quilt with some adorable fabric for baby. Went and searched and found the blog. http://www.thequiltedpineapple.com/2011/09/wee-woodland-baby.html

Check out that backing.

Jenelle said...

Storyboek by Birch fabrics is absolutely lovely and the collection has prints that would suit a boy or a girl. The palette is red, aqua, grey, and yellow so it's pretty versatile. I love the little whales :)

holly | bijou lovely said...

Happy blogiversary! My favorite line at the moment for a girl quilt is Heirloom! Classic and pretty.

laurawilson25 said...

I don't follow fabric lines - is that a mark against me?!? I just found out I'm about 7 weeks pregnant too - and I know you'll be happy with either a boy or a girl! Good luck! Thanks for the giveaway!

JuneBug said...

I'm guessing a girl!

And hands down if I was making a baby/kid quilt I would be using the Sarah Jane Children at Play line.

Lee said...

I will guess a boy! I love the Prince Charming Line of fabric! thank you for the lovely giveaway!

Bree said...

I love David Walker's Boys Will Be Boys - so much fun!

I'll guess boy since that seems to be what everybody's having these days! :)

felicity said...

I guess....GIRL! And I am definitely enjoying all the projects I'm seeing made with LouLouThi!

Pat said...

My daughter wanted the sex of her first baby to be a surprise, so we chose Kate Spain's Fandango for the nursery -- it was non gender specific, and echoed her husband's Mexican heritage. Right now I am doing a flannel quilt for my newest grand baby, a little boy due in Decemeber, from Valori Wells' Urban Flannel. I love her bold colors and funky prints. This quilt is the jungle animals print in the blue-green color way, with big polka dots on the back.

Ella said...

I'm going to guess girl. I love the 1001 Peeps by Lizzy House. I'm making a girl and a boy quilt for friends having babies at the Across the Sea QAL.

alli b said...

I'm making a quilt for my sister's baby boy to be and I'm using Alexander Henry Teeny Tiny Zoo in the brown colourway. I knew from the start I was going to make it into a baby quilt. I love the pink colourway - anything houndstooth is awesome!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Little apples for a girl! Congrats on your pregnancy! :)

Patty D from NC said...

Congrats on your pregnancy! I love Robots right now for little boys and have Ben using it to make gifts for my nephews.

Katy Cameron said...

I was admiring the Sweetwater Pure line at a quilt show today (although being the UK, it's probably long gone from your shops) and I was thinking it would make a lovely baby quilt that could be grown up with (if that makes sense!)

I'll vote boy.

Debra said...

I like Circa 1934 for a boy but think you are having a girl!

i are tiny kitn said...

I'm guessing a girl too. :-D
I like Denyse Schmidt's Hope valley. There is a yellow color way that would be nice for a 'gender-neutral' quilt. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOOX Monica

Allison C said...

I really like the baby safari and the alphabet soup fabric lines right now.

I will guess a girl!

Josurin said...

Congratulations! My guess is going to be "boy" and I'm going to say that Caleb Gray's new line called Robot Factory for Robert Kaufman would be super cute for a baby boy quilt. Plus it's organic, so you really can't go wrong.

http://www.robertkaufman.com/fabrics/robot_factory/

**nicke... said...

i'm voting boy! and i would go with some prince charming for a boy... and some little folks for a girl. definitely!

Lee said...

I'm guessing girl, if only because I have two little girls and I wouldn't have it any other way. : ) (Also it's nice not to have to buy more clothes!) My fave line for a little girl right now is Taza by Dena Designs. Gorgeous! Thanks for the giveaway!

Salley said...

Little Apples by Aneela Hoey. She is so whimsical with her designs and her colour palette is amazing.
My crystal ball says....Girl!
Have just become a follower...we all have an obsession!

Pat V. said...

I don't make many quilts for little ones. I think for a baby quilt I'd have to go with Lily & Will. Good luck at the ultrasound!

Kelsey said...

I love Children at Play by Sarah Jane: http://www.sarahjanestudios.com/blog/2011/05/09/introducing-children-at-play/, particularly for a little boy quilt.

I'm a follower.

I'm going to guess....a boy!

N. Perez said...

I'd pick Alphabet Soup by My Mind's Eye if i were to make a quilt for a child. I believe it would suit any little one regardless of their gender and at the same time it would make a lively and cozy quilt that anyone (including myself) would cherish.
Thanks for the lovely giveaway and congrats on your blogiversary. As for guessing, I'm terrible at it so I'll just wait and see if you share this with us ;)

Reenie said...

I am liking Urban Zoologie these days, boy.

gill said...

I'd choose Little Apples! and I guess you're having a boy!

Elizabeth D. said...

I am SO awful at predicting babies!!!! So...I'm going to give you a boy line and a girl line :) For boys, I'm really digging Peacock Lane and Going Coastal and for girls, I of course love Children at Play and also Prince Charming. Happy belated blogiversary!!

Marcia W. said...

Little Apples, or Pooches and Pickups, or Meadow Friends are all cute. Happy blogiversary -- and congratulations on your twins (LOL hedging here that will be a boy and a girl). Thanks for the giveaway. Love the blues.

jqluo said...

I guess it's a girl... Aneela Hoey's Little Apples...

Irina said...

I think sugar and spice from Riley Blake for a little girl is nice. Congratulations on your baby!

poppyinpink said...

Quilting Treasures have some lovely Golden Books panel prints that are so cute and a little bit kitch at the same time. Saggy Baggy Elephant and Poky Little Puppy are some of the titles that appealed to me and would make great themed quilts. They could be jazzed with some contemporary co-rdinating prints.

Lorri said...

I love the Prince Charming by Tula Pink! I will guess boy, I love that blue set of fabric! Thank you so much!

Denise in PA said...

Congrats on your Blogiversary! I can' wait to hear what you are having-but I'm going with another girl! My favorite line right now has to be any of the Lily & Will color ways!

Rachel D @ Just Sew Y'all Know said...

I'm a follower & think you'll have a girl! I think Carina Gardner's "Dress Up" is adorable!

Kate R said...

Oh exciting - bet you can't wait until monday :) I guess boy, because everyone I've heard about seems to be having them these days!! I find boys fabrics difficult but I did make a Dr Seuss quilt for my little nephew recently. I'm working on quilts for my little nieces now with Heirloom (the jewel-toned colors are so great!) and Sweetwater's Sunkissed collection (a bit more cute and baby-ish than the bright Heirloom, so depends what look you're going for).

R Carter said...

i am in love with little apples by aneela hoey for moda. sorry i probably got all the names wrong!

Kell said...

I'm follower & my guess would be a boy. Fox Trails by Doohikey & Riley Blake is definitely more for boys. I'm making a baby quilt with Hoo's in The Forest by Doohikey that could work for either a boy or girl.

Congrats on your blogaversary!

Kristy said...

Congrats! Loving that pink bundle, so I'm gonna go with GIRL!

As for cute fabric lines....LOVE Ann Kelle and the new Birch fabric line is super cute too!
