Three Years of Blogging and 400 Posts

I recently passed the 400 post mark and on April 1 I will celebrate three years of blogging. Wow! I've met many wonderful people and have more inspiration projects than I will ever finish.

To celebrate these events I am going to have a give-away for my readers. I have three pieces of cupcake fabric that have been calling out to me to use them and that is what I will do. The winner of the contest will win a Cupcake Prize package full of goodies for making and enjoying cupcakes including something made from these fabrics.
To enter the drawing please leave a comment telling me what your favorite cupcake flavor is and what you would like made with the fabric. Feel free to blog about the contest and receive an additional entry in the drawing.

The drawing will end Friday night, April 3 at 8 PM EST.

Good luck!

Sweet P

Woohoo! Congratulations on the 400 posts.
Now I am really excited to enter my name for your draw. I love cupcakes in general and chocolate with chocolate fudge frosting.

I would actually use the fabric to make something fun for my DD who loves cupacakes so much that she had a tower of cupcakes as her wedding cake.

Okay, so now I will go link this to my blog.I want as many chances as I can have !!!! Smiles.

Jackie said...

400, fantastic! Congratulations. I do enjoy reading your blog and did not realize that you had been blogging for 400 posts!! Okay, so my favorite kind of cupcake is a Devil's food with really chocolaty icing. The fabric would definitely be put to good use in a quilt or a bag.

Iva said...

WOW...congratulations on your 400 posts! And I just struggled with my 20th one :D

Favorite cupcakes would have to be chocolate with decadent creamy chocolate icing.

The cupcake fabric would be really cute as an apron; and maybe a shopping bag too.

Quilter Kathy said...

Happy blogiversary!
My favorite is of course CHOCOLATE!
I would like the fabric made into one of those little cupcake pincushions. But mostly I would love to include that fabric in a quilt I am planning to make for my friend, whose name is Candy!

Andee said...

I never met a cupcake I didn't like, so send me YOUR favorite flavor. Smile. A wallhanging, a bag, whatever you can come up with, I am not fussy! Love that fabric!

Kerry said...

sounds like a fun giveaway! I love, chocolate anythings, cupcakes included. The fabric looks like it would make pretty bags, aprons or kitchen items or a themed little girls quilt. It is so pretty!!

Congrats on your 400th and 3rd year blogaversary! Cupcakes are so in right now! I am partial to spice cupcakes with maple frosting...a different combo I know, but oh so yummy. I can see a quilted purse, or a casserole carrier with these fabrics or something sweet for my only granddaughter....

Adorable cupcake fabric and if in my hands would become an apron for my granddaughter who loves to cook with me when she comes over. Anything leftover would be included in a tote bag or journal cover. Red velvet cupcakes with a white cooked frosting my mother used to make is my absolute favorite! quiltinggranna

DebMc said...

I don't think I've ever met a cupcake I didn't like, but...let's see...a lemon flavored cake with sweet lemon frosting might be tasty.

I think that fabric would make a darling apron or a casserole carrier. Pot holders would be cute, too, with matching dish towels with that fabric as a border accent.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog last year when you were doing the baseball theme giveaway. If you liked baseball and quilting, I knew I'd like you! It's been a fun blog-friendship.

Here's to lots of wonderful posts in upcoming years!

Anya said...

I love lemon cupcakes and love all sorts of bags made from fabric. Congratulations and thanks for the chance.

This is quite an accomplishment and I send congrats on your 3 years of blogging.
I prefer chocolate cupcakes.
The cute fabric would make a fun apron and / or pieced in a table topper.

Michelle said...

My favourite cupcake would be chocolate with pink icing. I think these fabrics would make a cute pillowcase to go with a quilt that I just made for my daughter which had cupcake fabric in it. I have blogged about this giveaway on my blog.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

I have to go with chocolate. I have had grand plans to make a lunchbag for a while now, and I think cupcake fabric would inspire me to finally do it!

sclangs said...

I would have to say yellow or white with a good chocolate frosting on top...and maybe even a few sprinkles!! :)
This fabric would give we a start towards the I Spy quilt that I want to make my son.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Chocolate with chocolate frosting is the BEST! I would love a bag made out of that darling fabric! I LOVE bags!

Congratulations! Three years and 400 posts, great job!
I love anything tasting chockolate.
Usually I make cupcakes with chopped almonds and chockolate inside.
Sometimes I bring them for work. (My colleagues love them.) A bag for bringing cupcakes would be lovely, and a propper use of these fabrics I think.

Lory said...

Oh wow, three years! Kudos.

I like plain 'ol vainilla. I'd love to see a cupcake pincushion. Yeah, I've seen those and I think they're adorable.

Hugs,
Lory

debbie said...

Congrats on your 400th post. I like any cupcakes, but am quite partial to carrot cake with cream cheese frosting,Ummmm. Making me hungry. I love this cupcake fabric, especially the pink. I would probably make a bag or a baby quilt. Thanks for a lovely giveaway.

Mel said...

My favorite cupcake flavor would be chocolate!! Cake is my most favorite dessert!

I would love to make some small bags out of the fabrics to carry applique projects, hexagon projects, and the like!

CJ said...

I would say my favorite cupcake flavor is Chocolate (although I am not to picky about it!). I would probably make some cute aprons with that fabric to wear when I am baking and eating my cupcakes! I would make one for my little baker friend too (she is 11).
Thanks!

Nanci said...

Here in Canada, I have a version of buttertart cupcake, maybe it's more of a muffin though, either way, a cupcake is small a muffin is large. Ok, a carrot cupcake with cream cheese icing...

Elaine said...

Wow 400 blogs! My favorite cupcake is chocolate - warm out of the oven - forget the frosting! IF they get a chance to cool - I'll add some fudge frosting! I think an apron or a runner would be wonderful using cupcake fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!

Diane said...

First I would make an apron with the cupcake fabric for my daughter. She has twins, 3 1/2 years old and they love to make cupcakes. My favorite flavor is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I know, weird but oh so good.
