100 Followers Give Away

Hello all,

As promised, I am back today with a give away.  A very tiny give away mind you...but a give away none the less.

I just hit 100 followers.  I am delighted and amazed.  Who da thunk it, and not one of you related to me.  AND today I am featured on Moda Bake Shop with my 6th pattern in as many months. 

Date Night by Tops to Treasures for Moda Bake Shop
Date Night is a generously sized quilt that features Kate Spain's Cuzco fabric line.  The bright colors dance and pop on a sea of grey.  I think the quilt is simple and elegant in design and not terribly difficult to make, although there are a lot of pieces....mostly because I was trying to use Moda's new pre-cut size.  Candy Charms are 2 1/2" square - just the right size to give you an idea about how the fabric will look and great for making mini's or big quilts if you are trying to get scrappy without having a huge scrap bin.

I had 3 packs left over and they are on the table for this give away.  (Told you it was tiny.) 

The give away is open to everyone, although I would prefer that you are a follower of Tops to Treasures.  International visitors are more than welcome to play along.

Leave a comment telling me what you might make with my lovely left overs.  (Hmm fabric left overs are way better than food left overs, we call them scraps...like they are not worth much.  I think we have it backwards.  Wonder what my family would think if I started calling food left overs scraps instead.)

I will draw a random winner on Tuesday, October 16.  (Yes, that is kind of a random day...but it would have been my Daddy's birthday and what better way to remember him than to give a gift to someone?!)

I love your new pattern! And I think those little packs are adorable. I'd probably add them to my current scrap quilt.

Just came by after seeing your recipe on Moda Bake Shop. I love any quilt made with Kate Spain fabrics and I think this one will be on my to do list.

I think I would try this quilt, I love it because of it's timeless, traditional look. I know your dad would be very proud of you for inspiring so many people with your great quilting..thanks for chance at giveaway..

Cindy said...

Well....Kate Spain is my absolute favorite!! If I were lucky enough to win these little cuties I would make granny squares with them. I'm hooked on those blocks right now and these would be perfect. Thanks for the chance!!

I think I'd like to make a table runner or some placemats! Charm packs are the best for little home decor projects! Lovely quilt!

Thanks for the give away, these little ones are adorable. Don't know yet what I will make of them, probably a liitle doll quilt. But I promise you that if I win them, I will make up my mind and make it and send you a picture when it is done.

I love, love LOVE this quilt pattern and was hooked on the Cuzco fabric collection at
first sight!!
Thank you for the giveaway.

Kathryn said...

Loved the story you had to accompany your bake shop quilt. I might make your latest pattern if I win your giveaway. Love the gems and pearls. Thanks. I'm a new follower, so you are over 100!!

Renea said...

Not sure what I would make with these cute little packs of fabric. Most likely a table topper or a cute little wallhanging. Congrats on 100 followers. Thanks for the great giveaway. The day you are drawing the winner should be my lucky day as it is my birthday.

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

I love your new pattern and how the little squares shine against the grey background. I probably would make a table runner out of 9 patches. Thanks for offering such beautiful charms~!

Kelsey said...

Lovely!! I pinned your Moda tutorial to make someday :) I think I'd make a few pillows for our bed or couch!

trish said...

I came over this morning to comment on your gorgeous Moda Bake Shop tutorial!
Your quilt tutorial is fabulous!! I am definitely going to use the pattern.
Thank you for sharing your sweet little fabric.
Congratulations on making 100 followers!!
Sincerely, Trish

Susan said...

Oh my! would love to win...my birthday is October 16 as well and its a big one that starts with a 6. Checked Moda Bake Shop for news this morning and saw your quilt. Love it.

Joanne said...

I absolutely love your quilt on Moda Bake Shop. I would use the candy charms to duplicate your project. I like the nine patch construction technique!

Tisha said...

your quilt is awesome but I especially love the story of days gone by....how I wish the world was more like it was when you were a little girl. I wish people would slow down and enjoy the simple things in life

I would make a baby quilt for my neice. I almost purchased that same charm pack 2 weeks ago. Love all the colors!

designingdms said...

I just found your blog and I love this quilt! Love your story and can relate to those lunches out with mom and grandma. I would love to make this quilt for snuggling with my honey. The charms packs would be perfect for matching pillows.

Carla said...

I think I would make some mug rugs ; ) already a follower.

Malini said...

I would make a baby quilt using some solids. I love your pattern featured on Moda Bake Shop.
Might use that to make the baby quilt :-).

Thanks again for sharing wonderful tutorial.
Happy B'day to your Dad!

Kathleen O'Grady said...

I am happy to say that I am a new follower and am loving your blog. You quilt is beautiful and I love the story that you told. I feel the same way about how times have changed and everything is so casual. I don't think it is so great. Thanks for the give-away :)

The Amateur Quilter (Mike Pearson) said...

Wow! 6 patterns in 6 months! Impressive! I would probably make a quilt :)

Thank you for this giveaway !

Caroline said...

Congrats on your 100th post, being featured on Moda Bake Shop, your 6th pattern in six months. You've got a lot going on! I could not figure out how to "Follow" you, could'nt find the button. I have to make a baby girl quilt, so that's what I would use the fabric for.

Johanna said...

What a great quilt! I just came over from the Bake Shop page. I just signed up as a follower too. I love the mini charms, they certainly would go into a quilt!

The Village Queen said...

Darling quilt, on my list to make. Love those little precuts, just too cute and a big time saver. How do you find pretty grey fabrics? Not in my quilt store, and regular cotton from the big stores just looks cheap. Thanks for the chance!

quiltinggrammy said...

Just found your blog after seeing your quilt on Moda BakeShop. Congratulations on hitting 100 followers - I just signed up too so you will probably be well on your way to 200 after others check out your design on Moda Bakeshop. I would probably make a couple of doll quilts for my great granddaughter if I was lucky enough to win.

KatheG said...

Your quilt is gorgeous! I love grey!!! Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway -- and I'm a follower.

Gale, Ky quilter said...

Love your quilt! Those little charm packs are so cute! I think I would make a table runner out of them. Thank you and I have been a follower for awhile now. :)

Colleen said...

This has got to be my most favorite quilt ever! I love the colors and the warmth of this quilt is just amazing! I guess I might try to make a mini version of your quilt.

Marla said...

Cindy--I love your quilt but what I like even more is the use of little pieces of fabric. I started making quilts for our local pediatric unit in May of 2010. Since that date, every child who has been admitted has received a quilt to take home with them. These are beautiful quilts that anyone would love to own. I use any scraps that people are willing to share with me. I would love to have your giveaway to use in one of the quilts. Check out my blog for more information. www.piecedthings.blogspot.com Thanks!

Karen said...

First visit to your blog after seeing your quilt on the Bake Shop. I've been making table runners and these charms would be the right size.

Amy DeCesare said...

Congratulations on all of your Moda Bake Shop projects! You're quite a fabulous chef, and now I'm a follower. If I won, I would make a cute pillow from these sweet little squares!

Dawn Brown said...

I am a child of the same era and I too loved to watch my mom dress up to go out. Love your quilt and it made it to the top of my do list. If I won, have to be fun pillows - cant have enough of.
Thanks for the giveaway and it is indeed a wonderful way to remember your dad!
Cheers

Jennie {Clover and Violet} said...

Wow, I would never get a quilt with such tiny squares made...I can't even seem to make one with big squares! But it is stunning! I think I would make a book bag with them. We just discovered the mobile library that stops a few streets over and now I need a book bag to haul the quilting books I request home. Thanks for sharing!

Susan Standen said...

Yay to getting 100 well deserved followers, and well past that number now. I think if I won I would think about turning them into an epp hexie project as i have a whole bunch of papers cut waiting for 2.5" squares and I just have not got round to cutting fabric yet. This would save me one heap of work. Thanks for the giveaway Cindy, and congratulations on your success with Moda Bakeshop.

Gill said...

I love your MBS quilt - I'd love to make one myself with Kate Spain's new line!

Patti said...

Wonderful of you to share with us, Cindy! I think I would make a cushion cover if I were the lucky winner!

Nancy said...

I would make a doll quilt for one of my granddaughters.

Patchwork and Play said...

Lovely fabric! I would make a couple of bags for friends! My dad would have been 100 on 14th October!

Cindy said...

Great job on the MBS quilt. I would love to make it. Love Kate Spain and her new fabric line. Would love to win your giveaway! Congrats on 100+. I'm #113.

Carol said...

I love this quilt. I'm thinking it would also be cute with Flirt fabric. I like Kate Spain fabric, nice fabrics in Cuzco. Thanks for the chance to win.

quiltnmaryf said...

Your quilt is amazing. I love the traditional look, but modern feel it has. The story reminds me of my mom, who dressed up for functions in a strapless black chiffon, pearls, and black pumps with rhinestone heels. I thought she was so beautiful!!! (1950's). Miss her so much! thanks for sharing~

Lynne said...

Your quilt looks fabulous and reminds me that I have long wanted ot make an Irish Chain quilt. Those fabrics could be part of that I'm sure!

Fran said...

I would love to make your MBS quilt!

Tara said...

I would probably make a small version of your quilt. I clicked your link from MBS-- very pretty quilt, and I love the one with the circles on the top of the page. Lots of inspiration here!
