bloGIVErsary!

My littlest baby is One! It's a year today since I succumbed to the pressure from Helen and AJ and created my own little spot on the WWW.

I'm so glad I did! It has been a great way to record the process of my quilting, as well as the finished products. And I love the blogging community I've joined! Until joining the EB Quilters and starting my blog, quilting was a solitary journey for me. Fun, but incomparable with the enjoyment I'm getting from sharing my quilting (and indulgent photos of James and Eleanor)with others.

In true blogging form, my blog and I are celebrating with a giveaway. Sometime next weekend, James will help me choose a winner from the comments to this post to receive a custom mini quilt. You don't need to be in Australia, and you don't even need to blog - just make sure I have a way of contacting you if you win (maybe I have your email or know your EB name) so I can get your address and find out a bit about what sort of quilt you might like.
The winner may or may not be the closest answer to this: Which of my quilts has the most pieces? And approximately how many are in it? You can see them all in Flickr (link on the right).

Wow! Your quilts are absolutely amazing!! I think Canadian Inspiration has the most pieces but I could certainly be wrong. Maybe it's cause I'm Canadian? Happy Blogversary.

ME ME ME!! LOL!!! I LOVE YOUR QUILTS!

I'm thinking it's the Canadian quilt that has the most pieces. It is beautiful.

I think I've got the quilting bug Emma. I've almost finished my very first quilt LOL.

Oh i love a good quilt! My boys all have their own personalised quilt i missed out from family and i dont! :P

Personally as much as i have other favoriates i think the canadian quilt has the most pieces.. probably over a 1000 which makes my mind just go :S that you could sit there and make that!

Happy Birthday to your quilt blog!

Cascade Lily said...

I think it might actually be beach! Congrats on your blogiversary!

AJ said...

I think it might be that RR centre going around...you never know how many pieces it has now...til you get it back of course and count them!!

Kylie said...

How could I pass up an opportunity to win one of your guilts. I admire your work so much that I don't think I could ever pick a favourite!

Kylie said...

...Oops, I meant quilts not guilts! Really should proof read my messages first!

Ellie said...

Happy Blogiversay Emma.

You truly are a talented artist. Your quilts always leaving me in awe.

Jodi said...

Your quilts are all devine!

I had a long hard look through your flickr and I think I am going to guess 'Beach' . it's so hard to tell though and they are all so beautiful. You are one talented lady.

Happy blogaversary!

hugs, Jodi (batnbub from EB juju)

Happy blogiversary! Off the top of my head, I am going to guess the purple & green one with all the curves & foundation pieces, simply because I remember you commented on how small the pieces were, thus, my powers of deduction suggest that lots of small pieces go into a big quilt! LOL!

Little Munchkins said...

I think I will say Beach too. Happy Bloggiversary!

Jo said...

I am glad you took the plunge into Blogland as your quilts are gorgeous and you have been inspirational to me into getting my act together to finish projects and try new things.

Happy first Blogversary.

not sure which quilt has the most pieces, the canadian quilt certainly looks like lots, but there was the green and purple one you did recently and you mentioned about having hundreds of pieces to put together!

Belinda said...

Happy Blogiversary! Its been a joy and soo inspiring to read your blog updates, and the lovely pics of James & Eleanor!

PS My guess is 918? Am I right???

Belinda said...

Actually I change my mind LOL I think 1,857! Just a random guess, but probably from Canadian Inspiration!

WOW your quilts are stunning! Amazing what you come across when you blog crawl!

I would have to say the beach quilt has the most pieces, but then i'm not a quilter :)

I love the four seasons quilt you made for a swap, that is gorgeous!

Margaret aka Supermom said...

my vote is the queen sized beach quilt!...gorgeous, all of them

Louise said...

Gosh, it's really hard to choose between Canadian Inspirations and the Beach quilt, but I'm going to go with Canadian Inspirations because it's one of my favourites :)

Helen said...

That red and white RR definately! LOL Glad you finally got on board the blogging band wagon Emma, your quilting is too lovely not to share it around the www! :)

Happy Blogiversary. I'm new to your blog, but it looks like a great place to visit!

Mothership said...

Ooh Emma, I don't know! And am I too late anyway? James, if you're listening, you are a very good boy and I think you're the handsome-est bloke in Adelaide! Your mum is beautiful and very kind and your sister is so pretty and looks quite a bit like my baby.

Cuddles to you! Toys, toys, lollies, cakes, playing at the park, kittens, puppies and chocolate!


:P
