500 Posts Give Away

Yesterday I realized that I just hit my 500th (is that a word?) post. Apparently I have a lot to say.....So why not a give away? I picked out some of my favorite scraps, after I took the picture I was thinking I really should save them, but no I will share. Now that I think of it I will put some surprises in there too, no dogs I promise!

I will also be giving away this awesome book, it is so full of inspiration. Maybe you just might want to try and make a small quilt every month for a year too. I love to look at this over and over again.

To win you must be sure that I have your email....or I can't contact you. You must be a follower and I want to know what is your favorite color combination?
I will pick the winner on Wednesday and will mail it anywhere in the world!

Oh and if anyone can tell me an easy and quick way to adjust my header I would be eternally grateful!
Good Luck!


  1. Congratulations Kelly! 500 posts is very impressive. One of my favourite colour combos is green, pink and yellow. It's great whether its a traditional or modern quilt. Thanks for the lovely giveaway and I've been a follower for ages :)

  2. 500 posts congratulations! I've enjoyed every one of them.
    Quick way to adjust the size of the header is to take a photo further away and crop it to a widthways rectangle. It's the lazy way I do it rather than export and change size etc.

  3. I forgot to say that my fav colour combo anything with aqua, lime and hot pink. Of course I do love my red and green quilts.

  4. 500 posts is awesome!!!! I love turquoise/red/yellow right now but tomorrow that could change, lol!

  5. Congratulations on your 500 posts. I am a follower and my favorite color combination is (right now). Red and white.

  6. Beautiful scraps Kelly.. very you!
    Okay, about the header,
    Go to design
    then click on layout
    Click on header/edit
    When choosing the picture, also check shrink to fit box.
    See if this works.
    I just added a picture on my blog to try it. I am going to remove that soon.
    Or do what Janet says by cropping an image. And use that for your header.

  7. Wow 500 posts - congrats! Always enjoy your blog! :) Fave colors ? I love scrappy - esp. Brights and always a touch of lime green!

  8. Congrats on 500 blog posts! I would say pink, yellow and white is my favourite colour combo at the moment! Sorry, I am no help with your header problems!

  9. Congratulations! That is an impressive number of posts. I'm about 1/2 that, I think. I've really enjoyed your blog - keep blogging!

    My favorite color combo is blue with purple or lime green. Ooops, that's two!

  10. Congratulations on 500 posts! Very impressive :) my current favourite colour combo is pink, orange and teal with a black or dark grey. Sounds hideous but kinda works lol

  14. 500?
    How did that happen so fast! congrats.
    As far as the header. I think you can go into blogger designer and click advanced, then change the width. I've noticed yours is really large and not sure why. I think its the size in the template somehow.
    Also, I crop my original photo down quite a bit (I make it much shorter) before i load it
    Hope that helps.
    Pick my name, lol :)

  15. favorite color combo?
    yikes, that is hard.
    At the moment it is red and pink.

  16. Beautiful scraps! My favorite color combo would have to be cool blues, purples and lime greens...thanks for the giveaway chance!

  17. I love watching for new posts from you and it doesn't surprise me you're past 500 :) My most favorote Colorado combo from when I was a child is blue and green but there are so many I love, yellow and pink, cheddar and green, black and pink...........:)

  18. 500 and continuing to inspire us! I look forward to every one. It is hard to pick a favorite color combo. I think I will say brick red and cheddar. (very Pennsylvania Dutch)

  19. 500 posts! WOW. Congrats.
    The longer I quilt, the more colors I love. My favorite growing up and still a favorite is lime green and turquoise. Currently I like lime with just about anything.;)

  26. Congratulations on 500 fabulous posts!I'm looking forward to following you through the next 500 too. Your giveaway is wonderful,such fun fabrics and the book looks excellent, I've never seen it but I'm always fascinated to read and see the work of the 12x12 quilters, such a great concept. I'm really not sure that I have a favourite combo? I have a different one on different days. I guess I'm always drawn to hot pink, aqua, orange and lime green combos.

    My favorite color combo is blue and green, but pink/orange is closing in.
    Keep on sharing.

  33. Woohoo! Congrats on 500 posts, Kelly!

    I'm still a fan of red/aqua/white (and think it's good to throw some pink into that mix... lol).

    Looks like you've already received great advice on shrinking your header. I crop my photos to make them fit.

  34. Congratulations! Glad to follow you for several years now. I live in PA too!! My favorite color combo...depends on my mood at the moment! I know not what you were looking for,...but the truth. I do usually gravitate towards GREEN and combine it with everything!!

  35. Congratulations on 500 posts! My favorite color combination (at least for quilts) is blue and green. Add in some purple and I'm set. I really like your blog, and like knowing that someone who lives close to me (sort of, since I'm in Valley Forge) is creating such great stuff. Thanks for sharing it.

  36. To fix your blog header, you must resize it BEFORE loading it onto your blog. I did it by trial and error. I opened my word software ("Pages" on a Mac) and imported the photo, resizing it. Then, I saved it as a .gif or .jpg and uploaded it from Blogger. Like I said, it can take a few tries to find the optimum size, but your readers will really appreciate the time you took to do it.

  37. Congratulations on your 500th post, whoo hoo!! My favorite color combination is blue, yellow and lime green. Love bright colors.

  38. 500 is a big number, congrats!
    I am and have been a Follower for quite some time. Favorite colors are in the pinks - purples ranges.

  39. Favorite colors- Pink and Green

    Thanks for all the 5oo ideas.

  40. Congrats on 500!! My favorite color combo of the moment is red, aqua & gray. Thanks for the chance to win!

  41. Congrats on 500 posts!
    My favourite colour combo currently is blue and yellow--I think it's yearning for spring and summer that's doing it!
