Celebrate Too!


This giveaway is now closed. 

I'm still celebrate my blog-iversary, but let me say thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post! I truly wasn't fishing for compliments, but many of your comments did just that. You all are great!

Now, so as not to leave out the many international friends I have through my blog, these two giveaways are two chances for you and US readers to win! Yep, these giveaways are open to everyone!

Continuing my celebration of nine years of blogging (on January 26, 2009), the first giveaway is from Landauer Publishing (Clive, Iowa) the company that in 2006 published my book First Time Quiltmaking. The book is laid out in six lessons, though in a classroom environment, I teach beginner quiltmaking in five lessons.

First Time Quiltmaking first appeared as hardcover, and is now available in softcover. I found it recently, still being sold at JoAnn Fabric.

First Giveaway
Landauer has gone digital with some of their titles, so the winner of this giveaway will get to choose any digital book in their eBook PDF collection! Wow! I hope you'll go for a quilting book, perhaps First Time Quiltmaking, though I'd be all over one of these by Wendy Sheppard (IvorySpring) or Sew Kind of Wonderful's designs using the Quick Curve Ruler.


But it will be up to the winner to choose from any of Landauer's 66 eBook PDF download titles! The value is up to $28.

Second Giveaway
This one comes from the new magazine being produced by Amy Ellis and Christine Ricks - Curated Quilts.
The magazine - really more like a "journal" - features modern quilts submitted to the magazine by up and coming quilt makers. There's no advertising!

The winner will receive the latest (second issue) digital issue of Curated Quilts: Log Cabin. 

I've seen a few of the quilts on Instagram, so I know this will not disappoint. This is an $18 value (per issue). An annual, quarterly-produced subscription is $75.

This giveaway is now closed. 

So if you're up for either of these giveaways, just do the usual:
  • Comment once. Let me know which giveaway you'd prefer to win:
1. Landauer Publishing eBook PDF

2. Curated Quilts publication in digital format
  • Be sure I have a way to reach you if your comment is chosen. I cannot contact a "no-reply commenter" and will choose another comment if you haven't included an email address.
  • Enter by Tuesday, January 30. The giveaways end at 6 pm Eastern time.
Once again, thank you to everyone who reads my blog, and those of you who have followed me for the past nine years!

I'm especially grateful for everyone who comments on my day-to-day posts. Unless you're a blogger yourself, you can't imagine how much it means to hear from you! Linda

  9. Congratulations on 9 years of Blogging. I have been following you for about 2 years now. I enjoy your mix of quilting and family adventures. I have found that following quilting blogs has given a 'newbe' (like me) lots of advise and perspective in learning the craft. I do not often comment but I will attempt to do more of that in the future. I would be interested in a PDF quilting book from Landauer Publishing should I be a lucky winner in your draw.

    I’m a fan of Curated Quilts! It’s a lovely crisp and inspiring print. The current issue has one of my mini’s in it. What a thrill!

  14. I haven't seen Curated Quilts so that would be my choice. I appreciate the contents of your posts and that you're not just blogging to blog. I'd much rather have one posting when there is something of value than daily with little of importance. Thank you for getting it right! Howland no space quilt at gmail dot com.

  19. Congratulations on 9 years of inspiration-filled blogging, Linda! (That means you started just a couple of months before we first met, in Sydney). I admire your commitment to the task, and always enjoy reading your posts as they pop into my Inbox overnight, though I don't often comment because we communicate more frequently on IG. I'd love to win the PDF for a Landauer-published book. Great job! [This is my third attempt at leaving a comment. After I tapped on "Publish" each of my previous attempts went off into the cybersphere never to be seen again! If they all arrive after all, I just want you to know that I'm not trying to sway the odds of winning in my favour! Haha!]

Like Di I have been having trouble getting my comments to stick..so,I am trying this time com blogspot and not coming through IG portal!
