A Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

Picnik collage
Earlier this month the 2 year anniversary of Red Pepper Quilts slipped by without much ado.  When I started this blog two years ago it was at the encouragement of a friend who insisted that my quilts were worthy of sharing and without any expectations whatsoever I stitched and blogged to my heart's content.  Never did I dare dream that I would  develop a following of kind hearted quilters and fabric-aholics who faithfully stop by and continue to encourage me to keep stitching every day.

And so after two years of blogging and because you know I have a thing for numbers -:
  • 500+ blog posts
  • Thousands of comments - thank you, thank you!
  • More than 1.1 million visitors!
  • More than 2 million page views
  • and faithful sponsors who certainly make it easier to keep on doing what I am doing.
It's now definitely time to celebrate and say THANK YOU!  Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate your visits, and for all of your comments and kind emails!  And what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway?  or two?

First up for grabs is a FQ bundle of Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics.  All 27 prints.

As well as 18 Fat Quarters from Anna Maria Horner's fabric collection - Innocent Crush.

To be in the draw all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  Please be sure your email address is available on your profile page or leave it in your comment.  NO EMAIL ADDRESS = NO VALID ENTRY.  International visitors are very welcome to enter. Only one comment per person/email address.

The draw will take place at 8 pm  (AEST) on Tuesday 26 April 2011, at which time comments to this post will be closed. The two winners will be announced here on my blog the same day, and will also be contacted by email.  The first name drawn will win the Sherbet Pips FQ bundle.  The second name drawn will win the Innocent Crush FQ bundle.

It's been a wonderful journey and I've learned so much along the way.  I promise to keep on stitching and blogging for as long as I continue to love and enjoy sharing my quilting endeavors. 


Good luck and with thanks,
