Link A Finish Friday #100 and Giveaway!!!

It is here our 100th Link A Finish Friday


What a long Journey it has been.  My first blog post was Jan 2, 2012 just 2 years and 7 days ago.  I still keep thinking of my self as a new quilter but so it seems I am not as new to quilting as I keep thinking.  Wow 2 years have gone by.  But hey this is not about how long I have been quilting or how long the blog has gone on but how long I have been doing Link A Finish Friday.  My first LAFF was held Jan 27, 2012 only 25 days after I started blogging in 2012.

It is funny looking back at that fist Linky I had only 9 quilts linked up which is really not so bad.  But if you consider that 5 of them were my own quilts then you cant be so excited or serious about it (though come to think of it only 25 days of quilting and already 5 link ups not half bad hu?).


This quilt Hearts and Flowers (still one of my favorite quilts we made) is featured on that post.  For most of you this trip down memory lane is not what you are here fore I know.  Its that word "Giveaway" that has you motivated to see what is going on.  


Our giveaway today and our monthly giveaways as part of LAFF is due to our wonderful sponsor Fat Quarter Shop.   As you visit and do business with them please thank them for their continued support of Link A Finish Friday its success has been helped by their support.  If you are in need of quilting supplies please visit them at any of the links below.

Their store at http://www.fatquartershop.com/ their blog http://www.fatquartershop.blogspot.com/ and Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/FatQuarterShop

Today's giveaway pictured at the top of this post is a Chanlilly Jelly Roll.  To enter is simple.  Link up a finish to this week's Link A Finish Friday.

Most weeks the linkups are generally quilts finished with in the last week.  I want to have a bigger and even bolder list of finishes this week.  So I would like each person to link up to 4 finishes (you can link more but only 4 entry's per person).  You can link your favorite finishes, you can link up finishes that you linked in previous LAFF.  You can link up your mother's or friends favorite quilt (make sure you have their permission if its not your own).  Link up your least favorite or most favorite complete.  Link up the one you love the most or the one that your afraid to admit you completed (or never got completed).  Just link something up.

That is it.  Their is no other way to enter just linking up a quilt.  If you don't have a quilt, or don't quilt (or sew) then please go visit my Richard and Tanya Quilts Patterns on Craftsy.  2 years ago I was not a quilter either and now more projects completed then I can count.  I am motivated by you my fellow quilters and I want to see what your proud of.  And of course give you a Jelly roll so that you can then make another quilt.

Oh one last thing please let others know about LAFF and our giveaway. Feel free to comment I love them, but keep in mind only linked up items are entry's into this giveaway.

It is funny 100 Linky's later and the rules have not really changed.

1) Who likes rules. Toss them out.
2) Add a link to your finish blog or where ever you show off your finishes (Not limited to quilts but I like them the most).
3) Visit a few of the finishes and comment or encourage them on.
4) Monthly random winner picked from all of the months linkups to $15 gift card from Fat Quarter Shop. (and Today's Post only a chance to win the Chanlilly Jelly Roll)

Not required but fun to do

1) Follow my blog.
2) Follow the blog of all those that link.
3) Link back to my blog.
4) No finish, go quilt and stop reading the web.

Gee, it is kind of like choosing your favorite children. I picked four, but I think it would have been easier to pick forty.
