Its a Flea Market Celebration!

1000 Hits!  I am having a blast blogging about my sewing adventures and fabric discoveries with you. We hit a milestone this week ...Katie's Modern Nest has had over 1000 visits.  Yeah! It is great hearing what you guys have to say about my thoughts and projects.

To celebrate 1000 hits, lets do a FLEA MARKET FANCY GIVEAWAY!! 
If you've stopped by here before you know I have an obsession with flea market fancy and anything Denyse Schmidt.  If you share my passion and want to win this luscious fat-eighth bundle of pink FMF prints, you've got four chances.  The giveaway will be open until next Saturday at 10am, so you have a week to play.

I'll do a random drawing from the people who:
  • Leave me a comment & tell me what makes a blog interesting...what do you enjoy reading & seeing?
  • Become a follower of Katie's Modern Nest
  • Visit my etsy shop and then come back here and tell me if something speaks to you.
  • Link my blog on your website

What's better than a bundle of FMF?  How about TWO bundles of FMF!! 
If Modern Nest gets above 5000 hits this week OR more than 50 followers I'll give away a fat eighth of pink seeds (oh my!) and pink dots too.  Maybe you want to tell your buddies about give-away week...cause I really want to give away both of these beauties.

Most of all, THANK YOU for becoming part of the Modern Nest family!

  15. (ok, so I goofed in my first post and forgot to put what I like to see/read on blog... so please delete my first comment if you can.)
    I like to read about how people arrive at the quilt designs/fabrics they pick, so the process part of quilting.

  22. I really like seeing what people actually do. Not just the nice neat polished-up finished projects, but the challenges on the way and how people solved the problems or worked around them. I like seeing the process. I like hearing the Why, not just seeing the What.
    Oh, and I like giveaways too. :)

  23. I find that I tend to subscribe to blogs that aren't too commercial (you know ... tons of ads down the sides and lots of endorsements of products) but have a real person with real sewing issues type blog. I like to hear about the problems and issues with a project and not just seeing the beautiful end product.
