Quilter's Blog Hop Party GIVEAWAY!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


As I mentioned previously, I'm participating in the Quilter's Blog Hop Party, which includes a giveaway at every site they list.  As of last night, they were up to 226 participants!  It begins on Saturday, when the page I linked to above will be updated with the complete list of people participating.  This is my entry.

I just began blogging this year, even though I've been quilting for twenty years now.  When I look back at what I've accomplished in the quilting realm this year, what I see more than anything are quilts made with 2 1/2" strips, including Moda jelly rolls.  So I am going to give away a jelly roll as well as the pattern for a quilt I recently made with one!
I'm giving away, to one lucky winner, Fig Tree & Company's "Jelly Girl" pattern, and a jelly roll of Moda's "Fruitcake" line by BasicGrey.  This was one of last year's Christmas lines, and is getting a little hard to find.  Here is the image of the fabrics in this line: 
But it can be yours if you're lucky!  Here's how to win:

1) Become a follower of Ten Quilts, and leave me a comment that says you have done so.
AND/OR
2) Leave me a comment telling me the best book you have ever read.  I'm looking for something new to read by the fire during these winter months, so help me out!

As a reward to my current loyal readers, I will double your chances of winning if your comment is dated before Saturday, December 10, when the giveaway party links are posted.  So if your comment is dated before midnight Friday telling me you're a follower, that's two entries, and if your comment is dated before midnight Friday about the best book you've ever read, that's two more entries, for a possible total of four.  Beginning on December 10, the most entries anyone can get is two.  And remember, I will ship internationally!

The giveaway week ends on December 17, so I will post a winner on Monday morning, December 19 after I get my act together and randomly pick someone from the entries received.  Please be sure that I can email you, either through your Blogger profile or the info you leave.

Thanks for visiting - take a look around while you're here - and good luck to all!

  10. I am fairly new at blogger too. I have not made a quilt with the 2 1/2 inch strips yet but it looks interesting and fun. I love to read. I just finished Water with Elephants, Wicked and the Help...three great books. If you want a series than I would go with Diana Gabaldon's seven book series Outlanders. The next books I will be reading are the George RR Martin Fire and Ice series.

  12. My favourite book of all time is 'The Timetraveller's Wife'
    Have you read it??

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm a new follower. Love the Fig Tree fabrics. I am not much of a reader... little time with quilting, but I did get Color Nook and have hopes of doing some reading soon! In the mean time, it's great for loading my quilt magazines in! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Best book I've ever read... Gosh that's difficult because I've read so many that i just love. But I think my all time favorite series have to be Diana Gabaldons Outlander series. Even my mother loves these books and she's never read anything with even the slightest hint of fantasy touch before (they do time travel in the books, that's about it).

    In the fantasy department in currently crushing majorly on The Rain Wild Chronicles by Robin Hobb, and pretty much anything else written by her (apart from the Soldier Son Trilogy - did not like it). I suggest reading them in "order", starting with The Farseer Trilogy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a follower. I love to read but cant think of the "best" book. My son is getting me a Kindle Fire for Christmas and maybe I'll have lots of book suggestions later!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I too am a new blogger. Well I should say a serious blogger until very recent. I started a couple of years ago but only posted 2 or 3 times a year. I have been a quilter off and on for 20 years. Just really got back in to it about 4 years ago.

    I am now a follower of you.

    You are offering a marvelous give away!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The best book, that's a hard one! I have to say Lord of the Rings, I re-read it every couple of years. I'm currently very impressed by George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. Try it on audiobook!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh yes! Francine Rivers has several wonderful books. "Redeeming Love" is wonderful! I read her "Her Daughter's Dream" which is a good read too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm a new follower. Love jelly rolls. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Can't choose just one best book, so here are several: China Court by Rumer Godden, East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard, any book by Mary Balogh (one of my favorite authors). Thanks for the great giveaway.

  23. I second the comments about the Diana Gabaldon series. LOVE this series. I also like Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, any Jodi Picoult book, Twilight series, Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini to name a few...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't know about the best book I ever read but there are so many I've enjoyed. But the first large book I remember reading was Centennial. I think I was maybe 10 or 11 years old.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have read so many books that I have loved. You can never go wrong with Harry Potter!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The latest book I really enjoyed was The Help!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've been a follower of your blog for quite some time already and do enjoy. You mentioned a favorite book and I quickly go back to 2nd grade. It was "The Boxcar Children." However, doubt you want that for your holiday reading right?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hello! The best book I ever read is Woodswoman by Anne LaBastille. Non-fiction about a woman who builds and lives in the Adirondack mountains. Or I read "The Help" a few weeks ago and tonight I hope to watch the movie.
    Happy Holidays to all! And to all a quilt night!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just became a new follower of your blog. Your pattern and jelly roll would be "happy" under my Christmas tree! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! Lana D.

  31. best book ever? um. seriously? anne of green gables.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a new follower, and a new quilter (only about a month). The jelly rolls would make a beautiful quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The best book I've read isn't one book, it's a series - the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich - there are 18 "number" books, and 4 "between-the-numbers" books, and they are funny and interesting, and pure chick-lit escapism. I highly recommend them. As a bonus, the movie version is coming out in 42? days, and it is starring Katherine Heigl.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would be considered a new blogger to your site. I do like your site, though. As far as reading goes, anything by Danielle Steele or Nicholas Sparks is my cup of tea. I used a lot of 2 1/2" strips myself so the chance of winning a Fig Tree Jelly Roll and a pattern would sure be welocmed and loved by me. Thank you for the chance to win.

  44. I now follow your blog. The best books I have read BY FAR are the Millennium series written by Stieg Larssen. (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest) It is so unfortunate that this great author had an untimely death as he had planned on writing another seven novels in this series!
    I am also in the Blo Hop Party - so check out my offer.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have to agree with RobbieJoy - Outlander By Diana Gabaldon is one of my all time favourite books. Actually, I'd almost go so far as to say that the second book, Dragonfly in Amber is my actual favourite, but you have to have read the first book to appreciate the characters, of course!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I enjoy all of Jodi Piccoult's books. There is always a twist at the end which can take you by surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a lovely give away you have here, thanks for the opportunity! I read a lot but most of it in Dutch, I don't think you can read that. But maybe Henning Mankell, a swedisch autor, is translated in english, I love his Wallander series: swedisch crime at the best!
    I am participant in this give away too, so you might visit my blog too. Kind greetings from the Netherlands.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love that pattern! The best book I ever read is called O Rugged Land of Gold. It was published in the 60s I think. It is the story of a woman who was mining with her husband on the Alaska panhandle. Come fall they were preparing to go home when he disappeared and she spent the winter alone in the bush. It is a wonderful book about a woman's strength. I got a copy of it from Amazon so it is still possible to find it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't have time to read much but I listen to audio books when I sew and quilt! my favorite one so far?... hmm I like FUNNY ones, there's one where this realtor is trying to commit suicide but things and appointments always seem to get in the way of her plans, it's just hilarious to listen too. another one I think is called confessions of a social climber and another confessions of a shopaholic, both are funny, the shopaholic, she just CAN't understand why the credit card company keep sending her bills and calls her because she hasn't paid her bills!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Favorite book ever? Wow that is hard so I'll give you a few of my favorites.

    My very favorite series books are Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, The Clan of the Cave Bear and the rest of them by Jane Auel, I also love the Pillars of the Earth and it's sequel World Without End.

    I have to add Secret Life of Bees to the list of faves too..Oh and how about These is my words and Sara's quilt both by Nancy E. Turner. Persian Pickle Club and anything else by Sandra Dallas.

  138. Nice give-away! Would love to win! I read lots of books and usually my favorite is one I've just finished. Just read "South of Broad" by Pat Conroy. Lots of good reads on the other comments, one other to add is "When Crickets Cry" by Charles Martin, one of the few books that I re-read immediately upon finishing!

  141. Very beautiful fabric. Thanks for the giveaway. I love to read at night while hubby is watching TV. So my favorite books to read are the Alex Cross books by James Patterson.If you like crime and mystery, I highly recommend these books. James is a great writer and he keeps you in suspense.

  144. One book I always come back to is Pride and Prejudice, I think it's the perfect book to read on a rainy afternoon. If you enjoy nonfiction I'd suggest "1491" it's a wonderfully written account of the Western Hemisphere before the landing of Columbus.
