Happy Birthday Butterfly Threads Quilting!


Give Away is now closed!!


This little blog is 5 years old this month! That is crazy because it seems like a flash and at the same time, seems like forever. I've been sharing stories, quilts, recipes, books, travel and a few random things along the way. I want to thank each and every reader for following along on this crazy quilting adventure of mine. I am so grateful for all of your kind comments and generous encouragement from the very beginning.


So how should we celebrate this birthday? With a give away of course! I have a set of 5 patterns for 5 lucky quilters! The patterns are a collection of old and new and all five are not the same. I'm in the process of updating my pattern covers so I'll be sharing some of the patterns with the older style covers.


To enter the give away, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me how you found this blog, or me, or just make something up if you can't remember. You'll get extra chances to win for creativity! 'wink' The 5 winners will be announced on June 1.

Enjoy every stitch!
Diane

  2. Congratulation, Diane on a wonderful milestone. I've been a follower for a couple of years now. I can't remember how I found you, but it was likely from a QAL or blog hop. I love your blog and your creative ideas for quilting. Have a wonderful week!

  3. I read so many quilt blogs and see so many quilt photos, that I think I was drawn to one of your quilts and then started following you! I do love your Scrap Quilt Secrets book too!.....
    Happy Birthday and Happy Sewing.....
    Thank you nettiecrain@live.com

  4. Happy Birthday, Butterfly Threads! I remember finding you as I walked through the woods leading to my back yard one day about 3 years ago. I was looking up through the trees as the sunlight and saw the most beautiful butterfly caught in a tangle of colorful threads. I knew they were my threads because I always set them out in the spring for the birds to add to their nests. (Every bird loves to add a little bling to their nest, right?) Well, those threads must've dropped from a bird's beak and plopped right onto the butterfly as it was in motion. I reached up and carefully pulled each thread until the butterfly was released. She thanked me by flying around my head several times. She was now free to grace the world with her beauty and inspiration. (I also follow on Bloglovin'!)

  14. I can't honestly remember how I found your blog. I don't always remember what I did yesterday (opps, am I revealing my age bracket)? I probably was reading another quilting blog where your blog or a quilt of yours was featured and skipped over to see what your blog was like. Whenever that was, I have been a faithful reader ever since. So Happy 5th Birthday!

  48. Happy Birthday, Butterfly Threads! I looked up your blog after you were scheduled to teach and lecture at our guild (Hill n' Hollow, in AR). I ended up taking two classes. We all enjoyed our classes with you, and the patterns were cute!

  49. Happy birthday! I found your blog when searching for selvage quilt patters - I think that was back in May, 2015. I've enjoyed all the projects you have shown on your blog.

  50. I ran across your blog one morning while blog hopping and I'll always feel like that was a happy accident. I've since checked into your blog often and ordered your book. I'm finishing up my second quilt (Detour), which I'm doing in blacks and whites for a friend who is legally blind(she can see high contrast!). I hope to make each quilt pattern from the book. Not only are the patterns up my alley in scrappiness, the patterns themselves are so easy to follow! sayers.gmlrenATgmail.com
