My (Belated) 2 Year Blogaversary Giveaway!

I can't believe I've been blogging on Quilty Habit for two years now! For the first year and a half, I was still in college, and, especially during student teaching, I found it difficult to find time to sew (plus, I lived in a dorm, and there was no way my sewing machine could fit in my tiny single, let alone any part of my growing stash). I did some hand sewing at school (mostly hexagons) and fit quilts and bigger projects into breaks - especially summer - and almost every weekend I was home.

THIS summer, I was getting ready for my October wedding, as many of you know. So, I was busy. Only now do I find myself with actual time during the week to blog AND do some projects! Woo!

Anyway, that's the lowdown, and after 243 posts so far, I'm so grateful for all of the support that has come my way for a 22-year-old quilter (a rarity, it seems). :) I have an etsy store, I'm the webmaster of the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild (and I run the blog, and I LOVE it), I have two tutorials in the works, several WIPS to be finished this year, and a blog series to be announce this week. I'm also looking to revamp my blog soon... so stay tuned! :)

---------The Giveaway-------

I bought a custom bundle of Bella from The Intrepid Thread to make something pretty for my yellow and gray bathroom...


(and yes, two orange FQs thrown in... because they are gorgeous and I LOVE this line! Drool).

And guess what? I bought an identical 9 FQ bundle for one of my lovely followers to win! (thanks to Julie for making the custom bundles and working with me!!)

In order to enter, please leave ONE comment, saying that you are a follower (new followers welcome) and tell me what your favorite candy is (I can't believe Halloween is so close! And I'm craving candy right now, so maybe talking about it instead of eating will help) (maybe). You must be a follower (via Google Friend Connect, email, RSS, etc.) to win - usually I don't do this, but for this giveaway, I want to thank those who have been actively supporting me.

The giveaway will end next Monday at 8pm EST (and I will ship anywhere!) I will email the winner, so if you are a no-reply, please make sure to put your email in the comment. I will also post the winner here at this time - they will be chosen by the mysterious powers of the Random Number Generator.

P.S. In case you were wondering, this giveaway is severely delayed (by 37 days... embarrassed) because I was in the process of moving!

Alrighty, this post is long enough. Good luck!!
