A Few Seriously Fun Things to Share

I just need to quickly share a few very cool things that I know about. 

First, Electric Quilt is giving away 5....yes FIVE....copies of their BlockBase Software.

If by chance you are not familiar with BlockBase, it is a CD Rom that contains the same patterns that sold in 1928 for 15 cents each.  It contains over  4300 ready to print patterns and today's price is: $8686.00. 

What a deal ay? 

OK the real price isn't 8 thousand, six hundred and eighty six dollars.  It would be though....I know because I found an inflation calculator and calculated the price it would be today with inflation.  YIKES! 

The real price is only 69.95 which is closer to 2 cents each.  If only gas, milk, bread and sewing machines sold at less than what folks paid in 1928...LOL

To enter to win a Free BlockBase CD-Rom....CLICK HERE :)

 You're welcome!  I know I'd be furious if I didn't know and others forgot to tell me.  And....yes I've entered Good luck to each one of you as well!

You might also want to know that EQ is hosting a BlockBase SewALong and I know how many of you love SewALong events.

NEXT very cool thing:

Did you know is having Museum Day and you can get a Free admission ticket for yourself and 1 guest on Sept. 29, 2012?  All you have to do is CLICK HERE and you'll arrive on their page and you can see what Museum's that are near you that are participating.  You know I've soooo been there and done that! 

I can't keep my mouth shut when it comes to very cool things....and now you have proof :)



  1. Thanks for the heads up. Cool is good and sharing is even better.

  2. Fun stuff indeed! Thanks for the museum tip. We'll be in the city that day. How convenient!

  3. Thank you for cool info. I will be checking it out since I work right down town near all the museum in DC.

  4. Thank you for sharing....very good of you. I entered too!

  5. Thanks for the heads up. I entered. As for the museum, that would be cool too but that is my bday and I'm going to a local quilt show that day.

  6. Thanks Kelly. I entered for BlockBase but the only Museums close enough were either places I have been numerous times (and no new exhibits until after that) or children's hands on museums. Not that I wouldn't go...but I don't have a child that I can take as "cover" LOL

  7. =) Caught the EQ thing sometime last week - hope I win!! Just what I need, right? lol!!

  8. Thanks Kelly. The Smithsonian is a great place to spend the day. I worked there early in my career and the place still amazes me.

  9. You are soooo funny!!! and yes, that is a deal!
