PRIZES TO BE WON

Guess what?!  I am the guest blogger over at Sew We Quilt in their Want To Be A Quilter campaign today. There are hundreds of prizes being given away during this campaign.  Leave a comment on my post, and sign up to be a follower of me, here at Jillily Studio.  That will enter you in the drawing for the prizes.






Be sure to go there and read my tutorial on making yo-yos.











 Look what was delivered to my door today.  The most cheerful basket of flowers I have ever seen!  This was a "thank you" from the nice folks in Paris, Michigan.  Those people treated me like a queen--they were sooooo nice! 
Thank YOU, Michigan quilters!  You are awesome.




If you leave a comment on this post or my previous post, (since it was only up for one day), I will count you in the drawing for the prizes.  We are giving away one of my books and a whole bunch of patterns, and Madame Samm has added some stuff to it, too.  Good luck!

I will be posting again later in the WANT TO BE A QUILTER campaign, so I have some other prizes scheduled.  As soon as I get fabric from my next line, Sorbet Garden,


I am sending some to Madame Samm to give away on my next post!!!    Isn't this fun!
Go here to comment on my post at Sew We Quilt.

Not sure if these comments should be for Quilters or Wantobe Quilters. I am a quilter so if I shouldn't be leaving a comment just delete me...well not me just the comment LOL. Sorbet is so pretty. Linda

Wow, Jill - this is "Sew" Exciting!! (As Mme. Samm would say!) I love squishy packages in the mail! I'm already a cyber-stalker here and with Stash. Love your cute guest post today - especially the can of corn! I remember seeing little Yo-Yo dolls as a kid, like the one HERE: http://sunshinescreations.vintagethreads.com/2006/10/how-to-make-yo-yo-friend.html. Do you ever use Clover's little yo-yo makers? I could make yo-yos for hours...

Loved the guest spot at Madama Samm's. I am so glad you featured the yo-yo. I just used the yo-yo with a patient at a nursing home I work at as a therapy tool for memory and sequencing. She has since bought a machine and is quilting again with much improvement in her cognition. Thanks for the article. I'm a follower and a wantobequilter.

Hi Jill I am already a follower and I love your blog. Thanks for the tutorial on yoyo's, I am already a quilter but I just wanted you to know that i enjoyed your posting

Christel Hutson said...

Hi Jilly, I am now following you, just wanted to say the yoyo is a great tut! I didn't know what these were called..to me, they were the little gathery, circle thingies..lol thanks for the great tut..liked your posting style..nice, and easy!..perfect for us beginners! Christel

Stitchin' time said...

Visiting from SM and I loved your yo-yo tutorial. Lol, great pics for holding the camera with one hand! I'm commenting for my DD12 wantobe quilter as our time zone doesn't coincide very well with across the other side of the world. The Sorbet colours go nicely with your lovely flowers :).
Cheers,
Robyn

Gmama Jane said...

Love the Sorbet as do I love all your fabric lines!! You're one of my favorite! Madame Samm recognizes talent and shines a light on the best in our Quilting world. Fabric designers amaze me because I can't imagine having that sort of talent but very glad that you and other designers have made the world of quilting SEW much more fun! I remember the fabric of the 70's when I got my first sewing machine..A *WHITE* brand and I paid $88 for it in 1974!! I was so proud and wanted so much to sew. MY first attempt was a Neru shirt for #1 husband..you probably don't remember those fashion forward items...ACK!!! I couldn't figure out that slit in the front, got my thread tension messed up and didn't pick up sewing for another several years and then only for mending purposes. My fabric choices didn't contribute to any inspiration either. That's why I'm so in love with all the new fabric that you creative designers have given to us. These youg *Wantobes* should be SEW thankful they don't have to sew or quilt with polyester knit. Oh the pain of it all...
Blessings
Gmama Jane
