Centenial Give Away

This week I gained my 100th Google Friend Connect Follower and decided to celebrate by giving away at least 100 batik 5" friendship squares.   To share the love, I'd like to do that as 12 squares to 9 lucky winners, anywhere in the world. All you have to do is leave a comment with the color range that you would like to receive.  Most of my stash is pink, purple, blue & green...but I have some orange & yellow as well as a few pastels and browns.  I'd love to hear what you'd do with the winnings as well.  Non-blogging Lurker Friends (i.e. Emily, Michelle, Diann, JoAnne) can also win by sending the same info in an email.  Be sure that you entry includes a way to contact you, otherwise it will be re-gifted.  Give Away Closes April 7.

I like anything blue/green. I would probably make a fun wall hanging for my studio. Or maybe a gift for my friend's studio. Or lord only knows where they might end up. I get big ideas and then poof they are gone. LOL

Janet said...

Congrats on 100! I'm a follower and I'd love to share some of your lovely fabric. I love all the colors for applique, but right now my #1 pick is green. All greens.

Oh can I be in too please - and surprise, surprise, I like purple, maybe with some acid greens - now what I'd do with them - I fancy trying some dancing squares on a wonky strip/s with maybe a complimenting wonky strip down one or two sides and set of on maybe a black or charcoal grey background

Ethne said...

Ah, naughty me - I forgot to congratulate you - well done on getting 100+ followers

Ann Marie said...

Congrats, I like the pink, blues, or purples, surprise me if I win.

Stray Stitches said...

My batik stash is sadly lacking in pinks and purples. I am trying to collect enough batiks to make an applique quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to enter you giveaway. Congrats on reaching 100 followers!!

Stitch said...

I would pick pink or orange. I am doing a block of the month with my guild this year, and each block is scrappy and semi monochrome, so I would use them for one of the blocks.

Wendy said...

I would love the green or pink! I would use these in a quilt I am doing entirely out of batik fabrics.....thank you for the chance to win some.....

Julie Fukuda said...

I'd be happy with anything leftover. I see the next weekly contest on the Bloggers quilting gallery is applique. You should post something there so I can go vote for you. Congrats on all those followers. That makes them winners already!

Wayne said...

What a nice idea. I would love some red/green to make some rug mugs for Presents. Thanks, love you blog. Helen

Daniel said...

What a nice idea! I am a green fabric person...always thinking of those leaves to applique.
Many thanks!

connie said...

What fun. You turned me on to batiks, so I have to thank you. What a great chance again.

Congratulations on 100!!!

Debbie said...

Great giveaway. Love your blog. My preference would be blue or purple, but anything would be great.

Debbie said...

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers, Marjorie! I don't like pink and purple so my batik stash buying consists of all the others colors besides pink and purple. So, pink and purple would be good ones to add to my stash from your stash.

Lenka said...

Hi from Europe !
I found your blog just yesterday. I´m in love with blue and green and blue-green, like the sea. We have no sea in our country ...

Amy said...

Your colors just sing, in a cheerful, happy melody! I'd love to have any of them, no matter the color. I'm planning a quilt for my sister-in-law, the focal fabric being a batik with multi-hued sea turtles swimming in a red-violet sea. The colors you've posted would be perfect with it.

Congratulations on your 100th follower!

I love batiks - and if I win I would love some yellow and oranges. I am planning to make some pillows with appliqued flowers on a fantastic piece of Java-batik I've found in a secondhand-store.

Great blog!

Greetings from Copenhagen :-)

Mommarock said...

Pink! I would love to use it to make some applique flowers.. :)

Natasha said...

How lovely! I would love anything BUT purple or pink. Probably blue/green but orange, yellow would be fine.

I am not sure what I would make as I have never owned batiks. Probably hexagons though. thanks.

Congrats on your 100+ followers. I am now one of them.
I would love some bright and happy colour and I'd use to make my blocks for SWAP. Good way to promote my winnings.

Congratulations on reaching such a huge milestone. My favorite colors would fall in the blue / green and purple ranges. Thank you for such a thoughtful giveaway. I want to learn to applique - did one very small block in a QAL yet it wasn't according to directions. Thanks for the encouragement you provide with your blog.

Deb said...

Purples would be my favorite! Congratulations on your followers!

Glenys said...

I like pastels colours. I would sew them into bean bags, hats if possible and make dolls clothes with them!

Helle said...

Donna~~ said...

100 followers is quite a complement to a great blog--Congratulations! Your batiks all look lovely. My favorite colors would be anything clear and brightly colored. I would likely "sneak" them into anything I can--a bit here and then to liven up a quilt, or use them to make some brightly colored houses.

jmnstars said...

Congrats on the 100 followers. :) I was sent over her from Stray Stitches. If I won, I would love any blues and greens of batiks. If you have any with turtle prints, that would be nice too. I think I am going to make a quilt for a friend who loves turtles out of charms of batiks. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lisa Marie said...

I would like pinks or greens or some mixture. I'm making a scrappy quilt in those colors (sorority colors) and would love to have more variety.

Carla said...

Congrats on surpassing 100 followers! I like blues & greens. I would like to make a wall hanging or quilt with batiks, this would get me going! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Marjorie said...

My friend Diann entered by email. She says "I saw your give away and thought just for fun I should let you know that I would like blue - green colors. I never win but I mainly wanted to let you know I love the cat even if it has a big butt!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Maybe use in a block for the Rose of Sharon if I ever get around to it.

Beth said...

Batiks are so pretty, I'd be happy with any of them. I might put them to good use making pincushions or sachets.
