And the favorite notions are…

I must admit that I had a great time this week reviewing everyone’s comments about their favorite notions, checking out new IG feeds, and discovering some great new (to me) blogs with the Quilter’s Blog Hop! A huge THANK YOU to everyone that stopped by, commented and followed. I hope you will stick around for awhile. I love feedback and getting to know my readers.

The top notions (with number of comments) are:

Rotary Cutter – 25
Seam Ripper – 21
Scissors – 20
Rulers – 11
Pins – 5
Sewing Machine – 5
Thimble – 4
Thread – 3
Binding Tool
Clover Wonder Clips
Credit Card
Cutting Mat
Eye Glasses
Frixion Pen
Lil’ Twister
Lint Roller
Pin Cushion
Purple Thang
Self Threading Needles
Thimble Pads
Wooden Seam Roller

(All notions with no numbers had one vote.)

My most used notion is my trusty seam ripper but my favorite is my mustard yellow pin dish and hand carved pressing/turning tool.

Quilter’s Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome! I am happy to announce that from November 21st – 26th I will be participating in the Quilter’s Blog Hop Party plus doing a fat quarter giveaway.

Welcome to andpins! My name is Elizabeth from Philadelphia with a thirty+ year old Bernina sewing machine (the lovely 801) and a teeny-tiny kitchen with a new found love for quilting and a passion for baking, hence the blog name.  This is a space for my work, my musings, favorite recipes and other things I like. I am an active member of the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild and I am always on the lookout for swaps and bees. Feel free to follow me here or on Instagram.

Enough about me, on to the giveaway! I’m giving away a fat quarter bundle Bella Solids in my favorite colors: charcoal, red, black, and snow.

The giveaway is now closed. Check this post for a list of everyone’s favorite notions and the giveaway winner!

How to enter? All you have to do is follow @andpins on Instagram and leave a comment on this post with your Instagram handle.

Don’t have Instagram? Just leave me a comment telling me what notion you cannot live without.

The winner will be announced on November 26th at Noon EST. (Sorry, I can only ship within the United States.) Thanks for stopping by and happy blog hopping!
