This is so exciting and Brenda is going to up the ante...

We are so excited by the number of followers we are getting and all the wonderful comments.  You are so fabulous, all of you and I am desperately trying to visit all of you and become your follower.

Now the winner was supposed to be pulled today and announced tomorrow but when
 I stopped at Mama's Quilt Shop yesterday Brenda was checking the blog to see how many more visitors have stopped by and she made the comment she wished we could "hit" the 200 mark.  Followers that is!  My suggestion was "let's make it a little more exciting".

So we are going to give it 1 more day for you to get in on the winning....
....since you are being so generous to us...we are want to be generous to you....if we hit 200 followers we are going to add a second giveaway that is only for our tell your friends, your family, even strangers on the side of the road......

Brenda is giving away a "Lil Twister" ruler and 3 bright and fun fat quarters.  Now everyone knows that I love my "Lil Twister" and that I am constantly using it.  You can take two of these for the center and the other one for the border and you can make the cutest mug rug just like this one......

or this one.....

So we have just a little over 24 hours left before we draw our winner for the blog hop.  Let's get that number of followers up to 200 so that we can pull a second name out of the hat Saturday morning while we are having our coffee.  Good luck everyone and thanks again for totally overwhelming us!

We love you!

What fun we had....

It was so much fun watching the demo's going on at the's Brenda showing Deb Tucker's  Square 2 ruler....this is so much fun and makes these little squares so easy.

And of course Brenda 2 (BP we call her) showed off the LeMoyne Star this really makes life easy....this is not an easy block to do because you must, must, must get the points and valleys right....

I was busy cutting fabric so I didn't get to see the demo....but Brenda showed it to me late in the evening....and it was easy.

And of course, as usual, I was doing the twister demo and no one took a picture of me and all the ladies listening.  But we sold several twisters, both big and small.  I really believe that once everyone sees how easy these two rulers are they would jump on them.  Makes it look like you slaved for hours when in reality you can make a big or little twister in a day.

And of course, we sold fabric.  Lots of it!  We love helping customers pick out fabrics to make a quilt.

All during the day Brenda and I kept checking on the blog hop that we are participating in from over at Michele's Quilting are awesome....we are up to 91 followers and over 150 comments.  So many of you have visited Mama's Quilt Shop on line and signed up for the e-mails.  We know that many people are struggling, the price of fabric is soaring and gas is out of sight.  Being able to trust an online quilt shop eases the burden a little.  So we thank you for your interest and we promise to do everything we can to make your visit and purchase a delight.

You created a whole lotta smiles today!  Thank You!

Keep hopping, you have until Friday to visit all the blogs and register for the prizes being given away.
