250th quilt celebration!

This past summer I finished my 250th quilt and today I am happy to be hosting a HUGE giveaway to celebrate this milestone. This summer also marked my 14th year as a quilter and it has been quite a ride! I'm very thankful for my journey. I can't wait to see what happens next!
People always ask, "what do you DO with all of your quilts?" That is a VERY good question. We use them in our home, of course! We use lots of quilts on our beds. (Obviously.) I have a well stocked quilt cupboard, which stores the ones that aren't currently in use. The quilts stacked on top of the cupboard are my "work" quilts (ones that I take to trunk shows or have patterns for).
I have started rolling them up and putting them into baskets.
I have filled my quilt ladder as well. Spreading them throughout the house makes it seem like less of a problem. Hahaha!
They also make great wall art. For some reason I used to be opposed to hanging quilts on the wall. I have no idea why, but I got over it. (To hang them, I use heavy duty stick pins and shove the pin right into the sheet rock. Thankfully my husband doesn't mind!) I recently hung this one in my sewing room and I LOVE how well it fits in that spot. It makes me happy to see it every day.

In addition to that, I give some quilts away to friends, family and to charity as well, but I need to do more of that. Let's just say....no one in my house has reason to complain about being cold. EVER. :)

Ok, now on to the giveaway! I have rounded up a fabulous selection of prizes from some companies and friends that have supported me along the way. I'm passing these prizes on to you!

A Beach House thread set compliments of Connecting Threads.
One 50 pack of Clover wonder clips in PINK! compliments of Connecting Threads.
A fat quarter bundle of Lion's Share Fabric by Cotton and Steel compliments of Connecting Threads.
A fat quarter bundle of Leo Lounge by Cotton and Steel compliments of Connecting Threads.
A fat quarter bundle of Calico compliments of Dear Stella.
A "Sewing Makes Me Happy" coffee mug compliments of Modern Textiles. (Heavily creamed coffee not included!)
 A splash rotary cutter (my favorite!) compliments of Olfa.
Wonderful hand made soap compliments of my friend Tara.
 A BUNCH of mini charm packs, compliments of Moda.
21 (!!!) charm packs, compliments of Moda.
And...a fat quarter bundle of the 32 NEW Kona colors, compliments of Robert Kaufman.
 
Those are some pretty great prizes, aren't they?? MANY thanks to Connecting Threads, Dear Stella, Modern Textiles, Olfa, Tara, Moda and Robert Kaufman for donating these fabulous prizes!!!

Here are the specifics. Please read everything carefully!
 
Because of the high price of overseas shipping, the prizes shown above will be limited to residents of  US, with the exception of the prizes from Connecting Threads, which are limited to residents of the US and Canada. I apologize for the limitations. However, I wanted to do something so everyone could win.
 
This may be a little bit crazy, but I'm going to do it anyway. :)
 
Everyone who leaves me a comment on this post will receive a free PDF pattern of your choice from here or here. In your comment, leave your pattern choice, your email address and also the country in which you live. To those of you who are in the US and Canada, your comment will also enter you into the drawing for the prizes above. I hope that all makes sense!! I need a writer to help me out with my disclaimer. :)
 
I will send the PDF patterns out via email. (It may take me up to two weeks depending on volume, but we will see how it goes!)
 
I will pick winners of the prizes shown above sometime later this week.

Thank you for celebrating 250 quilts with me! Here's to the next 250!!!

Happy Monday to you! :)

edited to add: thanks for all your fabulous comments! the giveaway is now closed. winners will be announced soon.

I'm a relatively new quilter (just finished my third project), but have been following your blog quite a while. Your projects and style have inspired the direction and vision I hope to take as my confidence in my sewing improves. Sunday Morning Quilts was the first quilt book on my shelves! I have found your tutorials SO helpful as I am learning my way into this craft (specifically, machine binding and how to bury knots). I love your 'trees!' pattern!

Thanks, and here's to 250 more!

Congrats to 250th quilts! This is a really amazing number, wow! I've made a few dozen so far but because I gave a lot of them away I lost count. Mmh, I should make a list.
I love your generous giveaway and also that you think of us Non-Americans, thank for that. But I totally understand the shipping limitations, it's ridiculous how high they are (hope they'll be cheaper when there's finally the EU-USA trade zone).
I love your Waiting pattern it's a cutie!
Greetings from Munich, Germany and thank you:-)

Congratulations! What an accomplishment. It must be fun to think back to all the beautiful quilts that you have made. How do you catalog them to keep track of what you've done? Right now I keep a folder with pictures of each finished project and the files are named with year/month finished. Just curious how others track or if they track. Thank you also for sharing the excitement with a giveaway. I'd love to make a scrap happy purse! my email is crabapplequilts at gmail.com

Hi Amanda Jean. When I first started reading blogs, I found you through an online sewing bee you were part of. I was so sad (but understanding) when you took a break from blogging, but never unsubscribed, so I was thrilled when you started posting again. I have and love your book, and have made so many quilts inspired by you. My youngest daughter slept under the star quilt-along quilt last night. Thanks for years of inspiration, and such a generous giveaway. My e-mail is boyledover(at)gmail(dot)com and I live in the USA. I would love to try my hand at the Scrap Happy Purse.

Thanks again!

I'd LOVE your Trees pattern. It's so much fun!

Enny said...

Congrats on finishing your 250th quilt! That's just WOW!

Those are some great ideas on how to use and display them. I have been quilting for a year now and it's already gotten to a point where I (silently) and my family (not so silently) wonder what to do with all those quilts. Sunday Morning Quilts are a great inspiration for a newbie quilter.

It's really nice of you to give such wonderful prizes to those of us who don't live in the US. Tell me about the high postage rates. Here in Germany quilting fabrics are awfully expensive (20 to 25 $ per yard) so I buy all my fabric in the US but the postages still make quilting a very expensive (but fun) hobby.

I would like a pattern for your beautiful Birch Tree quilt. Thank you very, very much for being so generous and for all your inspiring blog posts!

My email is ennykraft@gmail.com

Wow what a give away! Your fantastic quilts deserve this celebration! Unfortunately I Live far away in GREECE. I'm from Finland so that wouldn't help either. So thank you for thinking us abroad and sharing your patterns!

Annie said...

Wow! You are so prolific! Thank you for sharing your achievement so generously! I would love the Scrap Happy Purse pattern. (Please could you send it to amday at tesco dot net as this is my main email account?)

I just did a quick calculation and worked out that to make 250 quilts in the UK would cost around £25,000 (approx$40,000.) I think that's one of the reasons I make a lot of small items rather than quilts!

I've enjoyed watching your quilting journey so far and will continue to follow your story with interest - I'm sure there will be some exciting stops on the way!

I live in Swindon in the UK
