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.

Hi, Amanda Jean. You are soon going to have 250 comments as well! I have thoroughly enjoyed 'Sunday Morning Quilts'. I have read it through several times.

Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. My choice of pattern is Trees.
