350+ Followers & 400th Post Double Giveaway

I promised to have a giveaway when I reached 350 Google Friend Connect followers and that did happen during the Pin It Blog Hop but I've had to wait for that giveaway and the Daily Craft TV giveaway to finish before I could post this one. Keeping up with comment replies sometimes is hard enough with regular life stuf and 2 kidlets...I didn't want to have to try and do it for 2 giveaways at the same time.
Thanks to all of you I'm currently at 363 followers though I know that the number is probably much higher since so many are only following through another source and because of that I can't get an accurate count. At some point I'll have to figure out something else but for now I'll have to stick with using the Google Friend Connect total.

In addition I was happily surprised when I logged in to actually write this post I saw that this one is my 400th post.
Wow! Not bad for just under 2 years since starting this blog.
Plus having another reason to celebrate can't be a bad thing either.
It definitely calls for a Double Giveaway today!

So what have I decided to giveaway? Weeellllll.....I do have a nice little stack of options since I purposely buy things at times specifically for this pile. I went through the choices and have elected to giveaway these 2 goodies.

One winner will receive this stack of 1 yard cuts of Summersault by Erin McMorris for Free Spirit.
 And the other winner will receive this book More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll & Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.
 I love precuts and of course having great ideas as to what to do with them is a good thing.

Now to decide how you can enter to win one of these....Hmmmmm, lot of possibilities available.

Since it is Halloween season and the stores are overflowing with candy, how about you tell me:

1) your One favorite candy bar.
I'd have a tough time deciding, especially since I don't eat a lot of candy bars, but a Reese's Nutrageous or a Baby Ruth would be Yummy!
2) My followers get a 2nd entry, tell me how you follow.

Please, please, please leave me your email address in your comment if you are a No Reply Blogger. I still get NRB comments regularly and I'm not able to reply back to you.

Entries will close at Midnight, Thursday October 24th and the winners will be announced the next day.

Thank you one and all for continuing to follow along on my quilting journey. The friends I have made along the way is just icing on the cake of all that I have learned from you.

126 of you added your own colorful comments:
