Before we get to the giveaways (there are two!), I just wanted to say thanks to the wonderful guild members at the Ottawa Valley Quilters Guild for showing me some love last night! It was fun sharing some of the inspiring things from the online quilt world with you. It ended up being way too long, but you stuck with me. If you didn't get a handout, email me and I'll send it to you.

As this is a blogiversary giveaway, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who follow along and give me encouragement and advice. Your comments always make my day and I really appreciate the time you take to leave me a comment!
For these giveaways, I have two thread packs and a wool thread colour chart that were generously provided by Alex Veronelli at Aurifil. Thanks Alex and Aurifil! This thread is quickly becoming my go-to thread, especially the 40 and 50 weight threads. I just love how smooth and thin, but strong they are. Aurifil also sent me some thread in different weights and colours for me to play with so I'll be experimenting more with those and I'll tell you more about them later.
The two giveaway packages are:
1) An Aurifil thread pack with a variety of thread weights and colours and a set of four fat quarters in the Hudson's Bay point blanket colours.
2) An Aurifil thread pack with a variety of thread weights and colours and a colour chart of Aurifil's wool 12 weight colours.
To enter the giveaways:
1) Leave a comment letting me know if you think I should change the name of my blog to "On the Quilt Side" or stick with "Quilt Matters." The blog name Quilt Matters was practical and available, but never really grabbed me. I can't believe it took me a whole year to think of a name I like more, but I think On the Quilt Side might be it. What do you think?
2) If you are a follower or become a follower, you get another chance at the giveaway -- just leave a comment.
3) And folks that attended my talk at last night's Ottawa Valley Quilters Guild also get a bonus entry -- just leave another comment.
The giveaways will be open until Sunday, June 17th at 5 p.m. EST (a month to the day of my May blogiversary). I'll pick two numbers via Mr. Random Number Generator and contact the winners on Monday, the 18th. If you are a no reply blogger, please leave your email address, otherwise I will have to pick another number.
Thank you again for all your support and encouragement over the last year. I know I wouldn't still be blogging if it weren't for you fabulous people!
P.S. I'll be hosting TGIFF! this Friday, June 8th so if you have a finish, get it ready to link up!
