Osage Bluff Quilter said...

Oh no, the woman is going to an auction. hope we don't bid against each other, no wait, there are no auctions in this area this weekend. Whew!

My favorite quilting magazine use to be Fountaion piecer. But it went out of business. i hardly ever buy a magazine anymore, you can find so much on the web.
Have a great weekend. I will look forward to your finds.

Pokey said...

pincushionpoints said...

I don't subscribe, but I do pick up a magazine at the check stand when it looks really good. My latest was McCalls Quilter.

Wendy said...

Oh you are hilarious!! Love this post of yours, love the giveaway opportunity a tad more ... sorry, had to be honest :) lol I'll be even more boring here and admit that I love the color pink but find I buy more fabric and decorate with the color green. So .... would that may my favorite color (subconsciously) green? LOL Thanks!

Wendy said...

Since I live in the sticks of western Montana and rarely get the opportunity to travel to town, I subscribe to just about every quilting magazine available ... just to stay inspired. My absolute fave has to be Quilter's Home ... more than just patterns, and very often entertaining. Good luck with your I am Bored contest! Have an even better holiday weekend!!

Staci said...

Favorite color? That is such a hard, hard question because I basically love them all! So, choose one. . . Red? Today I would say Red. Who knows what I'd say tomorrow??

Staci said...

Today my favorite magazine is Fat Quarterly. I just got my first issue this week and have been enjoying it quite a lot Already added a couple things to my "someday" list!

Thanks for the mystery giveaway!

Nancy said...

My favorite color is ... all of them? I'm a quilter, I can't choose!! BTW, I believe we share a name in common (first AND last, so that should count for one more entry, no?), which is why I started following your blog. But then I started reading your blog entries, and crack up reading it all the time, so I'm glad you're on my Google Reader subscription. Thanks for all of the giggles. Oh, and thanks for offering this mystery giveaway!

Nancy said...

Favorite colors? Wow, that's actually a brain-stumper at the moment... Um, I think I have to say fuschia, because I'm in a fuschia buying mood at the moment. (Yes, my favorite color changes every day, sometimes moment to moment.)

My favorite quilting magazine is Quilter's Newsletter. I never fail to come away inspired after reading an issue.

jean said...

Thanks for the drawing.
My favorite color has always been blue, but I notice I use alot of green in my quilts.

I really have several favorite quilt magazines, but guess I would have to say American Patchwork and Quilting by BHG is my fav.
Thanks for the drawing.

Lately I've been reading Quilter's World.

Judy said...

Fun contest! :) My favorite color today is blue.

Judy said...

My favorite quilt magazine is Quiltmaker.

Cyndi loves to stitch said...

It's really hard to pick just one color because I love all colors bur I do love lime green maybe a tad more than the others.....and as far as magazines. I pickup 4 or 5 almost every month but American Patchwork and quilting is always one I pick up.

Mary said...

Favorite color (at the moment) is red.

Mary said...

Fav magazine is currently Fons & Porter.

Margie said...

My favorite color? Well, if you look at my stash it must be green, but wait a min. A lot of my stash is just pieces I've inherited. Oh well, green, or blue, or red, pink, or--- you get the picture! I like them all!! I love auctions, but none close around here!!

Margie said...

Now for a quilting magz. No one in particular in this category. Guess it would "McCalls Quick Quilt" as in the faster the better!!! But I can sit for hours going through my very large collection of magz. wishing and dreaming!!

WvHmmngbrd said...

I love the color purple! Thanks for the chance to win!

My favorite color are the any shade of greens...absolutely love having some aquas thrown in to add interest and calm!

free indeed said...

I found the Fons and Porter magazine to have many projects that I like.

Roselie said...

That's a tough question. I love both yellow and blue, but at the moment I am in a yellow phase. So, yellow it is.

Roselie said...

Another tough question. There are so many great ones out there but I am going to say McCalls Quilting Magazine.

Robin said...

Okay, maybe turnabout will be fair play, since you won MY giveaway! My favorite color for things like pens, folder, binders, etc is purple. My favorite color to wear is...I guess black?? Denim, LOL, is that a color. My favorite color of fabric is anything muted-Civil-War-repro-y.

Robin said...

This one's easier. My favorite quilting magazine is American Patchwork and Quilting, followed closely by McCall's Quilting.

Miss Nancy said...

Great giveaway/contest. My favorite color is yellow. It has been a favorite color for forever.

My favorite color changes according to the colors I am working with in a quilt:) I love purple, lime, green, cheddar gold, cranberry red, tone on tone black. I can't think of a color that I don't like:)

Becky said...
