100th Post and a Giveaway

Before I get to a discussion about my 100th post, I need to make a confession...

I caved and joined the Summer Sampler Series hosted by Faith from Fresh Lemons Quilts, Katie from Swim, Bike, Quilt and Lee from Freshly Pieced.   I'm so glad I did!
Summer Sampler Series Block 1
When I think of the number 100, the first thing that pops into my head is memories of my children in Kindergarten: learning 100 site words, counting to 100 and the 100th day of school.  On that 100th day of school the students were required to bring to school a bag full of 100 items.  My older son brought in 100 tiny balls of aluminum foil that he (mostly I) had rolled up.  My younger son went a easier road and chose 100 beads that I had in a craft box - phew!

When I realized that my 100th post was rapidly approaching I remembered back to when my boys were in Kindergarten and how much I enjoyed volunteering in the classrooms, helping out the teachers and being part of a community of other Mother's (and one token Dad!) who had a shared interest in their childrens' schooling.

Blogging in the quilting community feels the same way as those Kindergarten days: a shared interest in something we care about, helping and teaching others.  For my 100th post I am giving away to you, my fellow bloggers and readers in the quilting community plus any new readers/bloggers that stop by:
