Leap Day Madness!

***NOTE!!** This Give-Away has ended! Jan is the winner of the magazine and the charm pack from me. Congrats, Jan!


My buddy Pat Sloan and I were talking about being so glad, EVER SO GLAD that February had one extra day in it this year.

I mean, February with its short span of 28 days always leaves me feeling short-sheeted. It arrives right after January ends, and in the blink of an eye, bam! It’s gone! But this year, we get an EXTRA DAY---Today!

Let’s make a gift out of this extra gifted day, why don't we?

Pat had this great idea that we play a bit more on this extra day, and spread some friendship around! Of course that means there is a fun Give-away involved, directly from our stashes!

Your job is to tell your friends to come join in, via facebook, via email, via phone call -- however you choose it! You leave a comment to this post for the Quiltmaker magazine issue and the Moda Summer Breeze Charm pack, and then you head over to Pat’s Blog and leave her a comment for the Aurifil thread and the honey bun roll!

Remember, if you are commenting as anonymous, or if your profile does not include your email address, you must leave your name and email at the bottom of your comment to be eligible for this drawing.

If it is your first time commenting on my blog, let me know! Welcome, welcome! I’m so happy you stopped by! And if it is your first time visiting Pat’s blog – let her know as well.

This is a fun pic of Pat and I together as we took a batch of crazy quilters on a Carribbean cruise this past November! ((The shirtless guy with lots of hair belongs to neither of us -- just sayin'!))

If you are a member of my Quiltville Friend Page on Facebook, go give Pat a like too on hers! You won’t want to miss her radio interview posts with other Quilt Divas and the other fun Quilty stuff she is up to with the Learning Center.

If you are here because you read about it on Pat’s Facebook page or blog, would you give me a like too? I’d like to get to know you better! There is a Facebook widget over there in the right hand side bar..just click LIKE!

Get involved, get to know some quilters you may not have met before, laugh lots, share lots, and quilt lots more!

Let's run it down one more time!

  • Use the 'Share' feature at our Facebook Posts to spread the love to your own Facebook Wall!
  • tell your forum/yahoogroup/message board buddies about the give-away!
  • shout it out at your flickr groups!
  • and chat it up on your blogs!
  • the more quilters the better we say!

We will both be choosing our winners the evening of March 1st – so be watching for that, and good luck and HAPPY LEAP DAY to everyone!

BONUS!! If you are new here, I've got another give-away going on that will be drawn for on Friday! It's for an issue of "On Track" Magazine, the publication of the International Machine Quilter's Association. You can go HERE to read more about it and leave a comment there for that Give-Away too!

Don't forget that SATURDAY is the first Saturday of March, so it's also YARD SALE SATURDAY. You'll want to come back -- if you have a blog, blog about quilty things you want to sell, and come link up to my post and let's move this stuff out to new homes. Last month it was a lot of fun.

  64. Happy Leap Year! Sixteen years ago to day I was 37 1/2 weeks pregnant and was admitted to the hospital with hypertension. I tried to convince them to go ahead and induce me. We love to give our kids a hard time and what could be better than only having a birthday every 4 years? They didn't induce me and my son was born on March 11. This morning I told him Happy 4th Birthday, and I got the obligatory eye roll with a little grin. He is a wonderful young man. Love your Blog Bonnie!

    I have enjoyed the Quiltmaker magazine since I found out you Bonnie are featured in it. It's a light and easy read and has fun things to do in it. As for the 5" charm packs - Anything Moda is for me. Talk about user friendly. I have used them to start my granddaughters on their quilting journey.
    Like I told Pat Sloan, you gals are LEAPING FUN.

  138. Bonnie, I am a huge fan. I have been following your blog for a few yrs. Would love to win but not a requirement. I feel I win every morning and evening when I read your blog! Just bought the Quiltmaker's 100 blocks volume 4 to get your pattern Midnight Flight. I love the way your quilt turned out.

  139. Enjoy reading your blog on FB everyday. Learn so much (recent post really helped improve my rotary cutting skills), laugh so much, love to see what others do at your classes. Would be fun to win the prize.

    Was hoping to spend day sewing but have a funeral for precious man at our church. Will spend time celebrating his life and his love for his Lord with his wife, family and church family. A good way to spend the extra day the Lord gives us once every 4 years...time with our forever family.

  140. Hi Bonnie-
    I found your blog a while back through Pat's blog. I have followed her forever and at her suggestion checked out yours. I haven't ever left a comment for you before so I guess I am a "lurker". I do admire your work very much and am in awe of how much you accomplish! Thanks for the inspiration Bonnie.

  144. Bonnie -- you've inspired me to start a hand-piecing project. Started doing 'Trip Around the World' last night. Haven't done any hand-piecing since I was a kid and my grandmother was teaching me how to sew two blocks together! Thanks for all you do!
