Pile O' Fabric One Year Blogiversary!

Today I am really excited to celebrate one year since my very first post here at Pile O' Fabric! What a jam packed year it has been! When I first begin Pile O' Fabric a year ago it was my hope that I would be able to talk about quilty things with like minded friends. I had no clue it would grow into what it has become today. I am so very thankful for this year and can't wait for the years to come! My hope and goal as a quilter, blogger, teacher, designer is that I would encourage others in the crafting community to give modern quilting a try, to step out of their comfort zone, try new techniques, try new products, join new events, and fall even more in love with quilting than they ever were! Thank you for your support along the way!

One Year Recap

This year I have posted over four blog series, hosted two Kona swaps, started Technique Tutorial Tuesday, hosted the Totally Groovy QAL, started the Skill Builder BOM, posted over 30 tutorials, hosted over 50 giveaways, published my first pattern Concerto, and started Aria Lane a modern quilt and embroidery pattern shop. Be sure to keep scrolling for three giveaways below!
