Four Years of Blogging CELEBRATION and GIVEAWAY

I've really enjoyed blogging.  I like writing and having an outlet for some of my work.  I also enjoy reading other blogs, keeping up with what is going on in the quilting/blogging world and, mostly, I love meeting new people.  

This outlet is just as much an inlet for me.  FOUR fun years!

So enough celebrating, let's give something away!  First I have this sweet little recipe book that Richard and I picked up on our last trip to the Big Easy.  The title is Favorite Recipes from New Orleans, the recipes are from some of its famous restaurants and everyone looks and reads absolutely delicious.  Well, I mean, the one or two that I looked at. 

Just take at look at Cherries Jubilee.

And there are beautiful photos of some of those restaurants.  The photos alone would be worth the price of the book. 

And so what about the quilting part of the blog?  Well, there's something for that, too.  I've been taking advantage of the very generous sale at Sew Fresh Fabrics which is eventually closing it's online store.  To that end, they are giving 30% off of all purchases of whatever is left on their shelves.  I've decided to cut some of the fat quarters into 4 1/2 inch squares so that I can play with a few ideas (eventually) and, of course, I thought you'd like a few of the squares.  Since I've barely started cutting on the Studio cutter, I thought I'd let the winner choose a color or two.  It really doesn't matter to me, since I can play with whatever color I happen to have.  
This means we'll have two winners: the first name chosen by Mr. Random Number will win the recipe book, the second will win some 4 1/2 inch squares.

These are the pieces that came in this week, but again, you don't have to choose yellow or green: I have plenty of other colors, patterns, and prints.  If you'd like to do something really scrappy, or modern, or "everything and the kitchen sink," I can do that, too. Four years of blogging should mean, oh, 40 squares, don't you agree?

So what do you have to do?  
Well, heck we're celebrating four years, so let's give you four chances:
                               1. like Fleur de Lis Quilts on Facebook
                               2. follow Fleur de Lis Quilts blog, 
                               3. follow Fleur de Lis Quilts on 3rd Revolution
                        and 4. tell us which color, print or type of fabric you'd prefer (solids, prints, modern, mix it up).

Surely you know that you'll need to leave a comment for each chance...please do.  And don't forget your email address so I can contact you on Friday, which will be the final day of the giveaway.

Congratulations on four years of blogging - that's quite a milestone! I follow you already, via G+. If I won, I would like yellow fabrics, as that's a real gap in what I have.
