Instagram Love + GIVEAWAY

Without a doubt, my favorite social media platform is...INSTAGRAM!  There's so much visual inspiration on Instagram!  It's so quick and easy, well almost instant!  You can see someone post a few quilt blocks one morning and have a finished quilt top that night.  Well, all quilts don't come together that quickly, but it's so fun to follow one's progress.

Just two years ago while at QuiltCon 2015 in Austin, Texas, I remember reaching 100 followers.  I was so surprised that 100 people would be interested in what I was doing, I took a screenshot.

Fast forward two years, and shortly after QuiltCon 2017 in Savannah, GA, my Instagram account reached 1,000 followers.  I'm so honored to have each and every one you follow along that I decided to host a giveaway on Instagram.  One lucky follower from anywhere in the world will receive a $25 gift certificate, AKA Stash Cash, to Stash Fabrics, an online quilt shop north of Atlanta, GA.  The details are below the instagram link.

There are 2 simple rules...head on over to the instagram giveaway post.  First you will need an instagram account and then:

1. Follow me on Instagram @QuiltedBlooms
2. Like the photo by clicking the heart icon below the image on the left.

And totally optional, you can receive bonus entries by tagging a friend.  If you have friends on Instagram, leave their Instagran screen name preceeded by the @ symbol in seperate comments.  The giveaway will close Saturday, March 18th at 8pm EST.

Happy Instagramming!


  1. Wow, 1000, that is fantastic. I managed to master the "Instagram load your photo " yesterday, was like a kid getting a present. Then I scrolled on down and found you and so many other quilty friends.And your flowery thousands are gorgeous.

  2. What a cool milestone, Paige! Congratulations and I am not surprised others are interested in your beautiful work as much as I am. :)

  3. Congratulations, Paige! When I met you in Austin, I didn't even have an Instagram account. Times change! I'm glad we can keep in touch so easily with our projects now.

  4. Congrats Paige! I love seeing those numbers too. It always puts a smile on my face to know that others enjoy what you share. :)

  5. Congratulations Paige! What a thrilling milestone!

  6. Congratulations!! A great accomplishment.

  7. Well done you, that's great news. I am on Instagram, but STILL haven't worked out how to use it, although I did post a pic once, of my dog!?!? For me it is a bit too instant, and I want details. But maybe if I ever work it out I will be a convert, never say never.

  8. Congratulations on reaching the 1 000 followers mark! I only started using Instagram a few months ago but I absolutely love it too!
