200!

I just noticed that I hit 200 followers. Wow! Unfreakin believable...that so many of you would deem me worthy of following. I am truly humbled and grateful.

A celebration is definitely in order. How about another giveaway?

I'm going to be in Pennsylvania Amish country soon and plan on hitting a few quilt stores while I am there. I will pick up something special for the winner. What that will be? Who knows. It will depend on what catches my eye but know that it will be chosen with a winner in mind.

Entries will close Saturday, August 11th at midnight. I'll announce the winner after that.

Since this giveaway is to celebrate all my followers, you must be a follower to enter. Just one comment each please. How about....what is your 1 favorite fabric style (type)? ie: Novelty, Holiday (whichever one that is), Thimbleberrie-ish, Civil War, 1930s, Modern Contemporary, Solids, Floral, etc. You get the idea. I love to hear what others love the most.

And thank you, each and every one of you, for joining me on my quilting journeys. This road is certainly a fun one!

I am a new follower. I love hops because I get to find all kinds of new blogs to follow. I am looking forward to reading yours in the future.

Barb Neiwert said...

How fun to be able to visit Amish quilt shops! I will have to put that on my bucket list. Looks like I'm new follower 202! By the looks of my stash, I'd say my favorite fabrics are Christmas fabrics. Love 'em!

Sheila said...

It is hard to say what is my favorite kind of fabric. If I look at my stash, it appears to be small to medium patterns. I am a kind of new to you follower; I found your blog a couple hops back during the Red, White & Blue blog hop. I have enjoyed checking in on your blog every since. Have fun in Amish country!

Melinda said...

Congrats! I have no rhyme or reason to what I buy. There is always green but I don't usually purchase holiday fabrics. The only holiday fabrics I have are ones I won.

Gill said...

At the moment I'm loving solids!
I'm a happy follower!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Oh, jealous of you! That's a trip I need to make. I work with almost any type, style, color fabric - my happiest would be tub diving - that wonderful happy scrappy tub!

Gwen said...

My favorite changes from time to time.. My current favorite is 1930's prints.. just love that old-timey feel that those prints give... reminds me of my Grandma. :-) Thanks so much for the giveaway!! I am a follower. :-)

Needled Mom said...

You will have fun shopping. Is there really a group of fabrics that someone can't love????? In the right piece, they are all beautiful. I love florals, solids, novelties, moderns, etc., etc.

Patty said...

Congratulations on 203 followers. I am #203. I love the blog hops because I find new to me blogs. I like all fabrics, but right now it is split between older prints and novelty prints. Have fun on your vacation.

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

Woo Whoo!! I just love all fabrics because they can become anything you want them to be!!

Kathy S. said...

My favorite is usually my best find at a garage sale. But I love florals. Congrats on 200 followers.

Celine said...

Well done on getting 200+ followers. You are getting BIG! I enjoy visiting your blog and am enjoying the 2 swaps I am in that you organised, thanks for that. Favorite fabric? Do I really have to pick one, I guess it would be easier to pick what I don't like so much (neons and 30s). Favorite food is dark chocolate though! Enjoy your trip to the Amish country.

Snoodles said...

Since I just won the hot fudge (yum!) I'm not in the draw this time....just stopping by to say congratulations on hitting the 200 mark! I always enjoy stopping by your blog - tho sometimes I'm in such a rush that I can't comment! My fav fabrics are thirties repros, by the way!
Hugs!

Annie said...

My short list of dislikes would be much easier to list. I love a lot of different styles but I really have to say Text prints and Halloween prints really get my blood pumping! Here's to the next 200! Cheers to you!

Rachel said...

My favorite varies, sometimes daily, thus the stash, LOL...But if I seriously think about what I am ALWAYS drawn to It would have to be a red/white & blue/patriotic theme. OK, I am SERIOUSLY jealous that you are going to Amish country, that is definitely somewhere I would love to go!!

Linda said...

Congratulations on your 200 followers! Those without blogs don't understand just how we watch those numbers! It's a form a validation and keeps us going!

Rebeckah Austin said...

YAY Congrats! I would have to say text fabric is one of my faves so far, but I also like modern and 30s... Almost everything really :)

DaisyChain said...

Congratulations on your 200+ followers. I've been reading your blog for a while now. My favourite fabrics are anything with a kind of vintage feel about it. Enjoy all that quilt store shopping in Pennsylvannia.x

Susie said...

Hi Michele Congratulations on 200 Followers. My favourite fabric is one with animals on, it can be any animal, cows, sheep, dogs, cats, chickens, anything. I love the colours that they are produced in and they look great on baby/child quilts. Have a lovely trip. Susie x

Joyce Carter said...

Congratulations on reaching 200+ followers. I am so happy to be one of those.Wish i were going with you to the Amish country. I love looking at their quilts. Their quilting is so amazing. Have fun while you are there. My favorite fabric is the 1930 reproductions. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

SpartanBabe said...

Congratulations! I am glad to have found you and enjoy following you :o) I love batiks. I am a nut about matching so, unless I have all the right colors from a single collection in something other than batiks, it drives me crazy. Batiks all match, no matter the designer, type or manufacturer - plus they make a clear big picture. Love em! Have fun on your trip to the Amish Country :o)

Julianne said...

Hi Michelle! congrats on 200!! YOU GO GIRL!! My favorites are Moda marbles and polka dots!!

mumasu said...

Paisley, anything paisley. One day when out shopping I stopped to look at a watch with a paisley strap. When I caught up my daughter said "what were you looking at mum" and her dad said "paisley, I don't know what it was, but it was paisley".

Denise said...

I'm a new follower. Love your blog.

I am a follower and wish I was going along for the shopping trip! Congratulations to you! My favorites do vary, but I gravitate towards scrappy quilts...love lots of pieces and these days seem to choose civil war type fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

Orange Crumpled Napkin said...

Wow. you have one giveaway after another,and another. A huge heart! I can't really say what my favorite fabric is. I do like bright colors, and medium prints. My favorite fabrics because of their vibrancy are the Laurel Burch line from years ago. I hope you have a fantastic trip.

Maria Kievit said...

Love calicos, always have and always will. But there is a lot of nice material coming out these days, too. Thanks for the giveaway. Am a follower.

MaryBeth said...

I absolutely love Civil War reproductions, and brights, and batiks. Well, you get the picture, LOL.

Karen said...

Have a great time on your vacation! I caught the sewing bug when I was in Amish country in Indiana when I was 10 yrs old and bought a bunch of starry print fabric for at least a dozen bed pillows. You'll have so much fun! My favorite kind of fabric is bright colored - can be solids or prints or batiks - any of them. I just love them if they're vibrant. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kelli Fannin Quilts said...

I'm partial to dots.. love them, big or small, or anywhere in between, all colors. :o) Have a great time in Amish country.. Shop hopping in that area sounds dreamy! Thanks for the giveaway chance, too. xo

Wendy said...

Big time congratulations on 200!! I oh-so-know the feeling!! :) :) As for fabric favorites ... I like fun ... fun, sometimes bright, sometimes just pretty, sometimes just wow ... sometimes dark ... isn't that helpful :) :) :) Congratulations and enjoy your trip to Amish country :)

Anita said...

Congrats on 200! How awesome :) I think I love almost all fabric but have been going through cycles lately, I was in love with Civil War fabrics but am really loving the modern fabrics right night, so that would be my current fave. What does French General fall under? I love anything French General or 3 Sisters...yikes, see how hard it is to narrow it down :)

SassyCathy said...

I can't seem to resist those 1930's reproductions. They are so sweet! I have been stashing away all the bargains I can find! :-)
Have plans to make some cute and cuddly quilts in vintage style
Thank you for the chance to win - just wish I could steal away with you
My Husband and I spent an evening in a Lancaster Bed and Breakfast with an Amish family. We really enjoyed our visit, and even took Grandpa to a horse auction the next day.
Have fun!
Sassy Cathy

Chiska said...

I love striking fabric, but am really drawn to the novelty fabric. Might be because I have kids. :)

Tiffany said...

CongratS!!

I am really digging solids right now, but generally pick up modern/contemporary fabrics.

Janet said...

I am a follower and I love modern fabric, although I'm still learning how to use them.

hueisei said...

Contras!! I'm a proud follower. I love all kinds of fabrics :)

Lisa Cox said...

I really, really love batiks. I've got a little stash of them, and I'm letting it get larger before I decide what pattern I'm going to use.
I'm a very happy follower via GFC

Jenn said...

Yay for you! My favorite is 30's reproductions. Thanks

Vicki said...

Hey Michele Congrats on he number 200 I've been following I have been enthralled with batiks of all flavors for a few years and have quite a stash of them I am now falling in love with the so called modern prints but am a little intimidated by them yet I guess I am a no reply blogger actually I am a no blogger blogger so I guess I will try to remedy that quilternp@aol.com

Judy1522 said...

I love all kinds of fabric but I have to say that batiks are one of my favorites. Going to Amish country to shop sounds like so much fun.

SewLindaAnn said...

My fave type of fabric is the white or neutral background with black lined drawings and washes of color. When I lived on Long Island NY we used to take road trips to PA all the time. We used to love getting candy from Stuckeys. wonder if they still exist.
