Oh what would I do??? I would purchase a long arm for myself (even though I have one) and upgrade for me and one exactly like it for my friend, a Millinum. Then I would purchase lessons for both of us with the top longarmers, then we would buy all the fabric we needed to make quilts that we would give to charities of our choosing. The link to my blog is rantalarags.blogspot.com

Jeanne said...

I would buy a computerized longarm machine to share with my friend. After catching up on the quilt tops waiting to be quilted, we would visit as many national quilt shows/museums as money would permit. My blog is

Paula said...

hmmm, since there is a financial limit....LOL.

I would rent a convertible, drive my bestest friend to an out of state, humongous quilt show,seeing sights along the way.

We would stay in a NICE hotel, drink lattes, purchase fabrics, patterns, etc., have someone massage our feet and legs (cause you know they get tired!), and have a grand ole time.

On the way home, we'd stop at all those little places I've dreamed of stopping to visit and take tons of pics to share with friends.

Thanks for letting me dream!

Hedgehog said...

I would travel around the world, purchasing fabric along the way.

sbonetsue said...

First, a top of the line sewing machine, with all the bells and whistles I've always wanted. Then a long arm, a simple one that I could manage. And then an Alaskan Cruise, a quilting themed one, I would take a quilting buddy with me and we would splurge at any vendor and quilt shop we saw. How fun it would be not to count pennies, to just buy something because you like it. The other thing I would do is beef up my stash, fill in colors and patterns I might need in the future, because as we all know the one with the most fabric when they die wins!

mamaspark said...

I would travel to the places around the world that I have always wanted to see. I would take my friend with me to Australia to meet another of my friends that lives there and we would go during a big quilt show. I think all the traveling would use up the money pretty quickly. My blog is

zizzybob said...

Hey Paula, can I be your best friend?

May Britt said...

What would I do..... I'm soon posting a blogpost about that, so if you want to see what I would do visit my blog www.abyquilt.blogspot.com

Pat said...

My friend and I have talked of this often. We would take a trip to Australia and take a class with Leanne Beasley and a few other AU designers. After that we would visit the Quilt show in Sisters Oregon and then the quilt markets in Houston, Chicagoand Portland. Buying what ever we want without a second thought.

Nancy said...

We get the same, Long arm; trip to Australia; all the fabric/patterns we could possible want and a log cabin. Geez, I think I am over the limit.....

so....maybe only I get the log cabin, she has a nice house anyway....

Nancy said...

Julia said...

This is fun!
I would buy a top of line machine for me and a HQ Pro-Stitcher. Since my bestest friend doesn't sew or quilt, I would have to just drag her along as I traveled around to all of the quilts shops and spend, spend, spend. We would stay in every little Bed&Breakfast we could find and for her we would have to hit all of the shopping malls along the way!

Miss Nancy said...

Oh, What would I do with $50,000 for myself and a friend? I would use it to take us to the Houston quilt show then I would use it to take us to see our friend in Australia and visit an Australian quilt show, a few Australian quilt shops and attend some classes. We would have great fun and learn so much more about quilting. Plus we would see another part of the world. We would learn so much that our heads would be bulging out in all directions. We would have so much to share when we got back we would have classes for weeks to come.

Heather said...

Oh wow, that would be the coolest thing ever wouldn't it?? I'd get my friend and rent a sweet car, drive to a lovely place at the coast somewhere, hitting every quilt shop along the way. We'd both buy brand new fancy sewing machines, and a long arm... of course! And we would get to the beach and sew to our heart's content :) Now you got me dreaming :D

Lovely blog! Haven't seen it before now. My blog is: www.quiltorstitch.blogspot.com

VERO said...

Hola !! I would make a trip to USA
and be in Pensilvania City , living with those people who works on beautiful quilts , like the past .Visiting Quilt shops to buy fabrics , patterns and Book´s , specially a Civil War Book for mypersonal use !!!
Greatings from Chile , Vero

CONNIE W said...

I have a longarm so I would add the computerized part (over $13,000), buy my friend a new sewing machine of her choice, and then add on a new large studio room for all my sewing & quilting, complete with a fireplace for those cold wintry days. If there was any $$ left I would indulge in fabric, fabric, fabric.

Karen said...

I would use the money to bring well known speakers to my quilt guild. That would take care of a lot of friends!!

Quilt Memories said...

Just found your blog, Enjoying it...WHAT WOULD I DO WITH $50,000.00
First I would buy the newest Embroidery machines that Bernina has for my BF and me.Then I would find a retreat somewhere that we could go to, you see neither of us has ever been to a retreat,Maybe somewhere exotic and maybe for two weeks. That would be great. Then we would go to a Quilt show and buy everything we want, no matter the price. Then I think after all that we would need a week of rest and relaxation in a beautiful place at the beach. I think I have probably spent all my money, but if not, there is always quilt stores in our town....WOW, what a DREAM !!!!!!

bethany said...

I would buy us each new cameras (really nice ones, like the D80) and new sewing machines...cause the Walmart special just isn't cutting it for me. Then we go to town buying cute fabric!!
My blog is http://vermillionrules.blogspot.com!

Crazy In Pieces said...

For starters I would invest $10,000in my best friends quilt and stitchery pattern designing business. Then, we would take a trip to Australia and visit every quilt shop we could find and have time to spend with each other. If any money was left I would trade my Bernina for a Bernina Stitch Regulator..

Chookyblue...... said...

I'm going with May britt as I was to do exactly what she said.........

sea mystery said...

I would buy new laptops and sewing machines for myself and my best friend, Roxanne. She could teach me to make beautiful clothes like her Aunt taught her when she was young ... I taught her to crochet.
I don't have a blog yet, but my sister made me a website for by birthday a few years ago. It is

Thanks for hostessing this contest.

Lynne in Hawaii said...

First I would upgrade my sewing machine so I'd have more bells and whistles. Then my girlfriend and I would take a world quilt shop tour...shop til we drop and run out of funds.

thegoldenneedle said...

What I would do with $50000.00. I need new wheels, a Burgandy corvette. Then I would take my friend shopping at a quilt shop in my new 'vette!!!

Karen L

Pat said...

I would take my bestest quilt-y friend and go on a retreat with all the fabric for the quilts we want to make, all the instructors we want to take classes with, the sewing machines we want to sew with and, of course, someone to cook all our meals! That WOULD be fun, right?!

My blog is bellcreekquilts.blogspot.com

Lappesola said...

I would fly first class with my best sewing friend to Houston. Attend the quilt show and shop like crasy. Hire a container to ship it all back home.
Hugs from Sol in Norway
(and of course I'd buy a longarm for each of us)

Jacquie said...

That's a lot of money...hmmm I'd buy myself a real sewing machine...I'd take my friend and we'd go to Africa and then to Canada to explore our roots together. Then...if there is money left...I'd go fabric shopping and I'd take her book shopping. Of course, with all that time together maybe, just maybe I could hook her on quilting and we'd buy her a sewing machine too!

Jacquie said...

Of course I forgot the link...even with money I'm an airhead! www.tallgrassprairiestudio.blogspot.com

Shelina said...

I have to share??!? Okay since I have no idea how much things cost, I'll dream big, and will have to downsize more realistically. I would build an artists studio. It would have lots of windows, and great lighting, with room darkening shades so we could adjust the lighting exactly the way we want it. It would have an embroidery machine, and a long arm, of course. It would have a cozy place to sit and relax to take breaks. Also desks with computers so we could blog and do whatever office work was necessary. Oh yes the sharing part, my sister can come and hang out with me and do her scrapbooking or photography or whatever she feels like doing from time to time. If you gave me $50,000, I might even be convinced to share space with you Carolyn! Hey does that leave me any money left for travelling? Cause I want to see Paducah and other quilt shows. And a genealogy convention. I'd love to spend a week or two in Salt Lake City.

LC said...

I would buy my friend a Ricky Tims quilt. She loves "Bohemian Rhapsody" but I doubt it is for sale, so he would have to make her one like it. As for myself, tough question as my sewing room is over-weight already, but maybe, for the shear frivolity of it, I would buy myself a Ruth McDowell quilt. If (a big if) there is any money left over, I'd plan a trip to Houston, and one to Tokyo. Dreams. Thanks for the opportunity!

My blog is: http://elsiequilts.blogspot.com/ and I'm going there now to post your link!

Linda_J said...

Have our very own quilt retreat somewhere in Oregon (maybe Sisters ?) so I could see all 3 best pals in the PNW and fly in another friend or two I would dearly love to meet. That would mean that I wouldn't have to pick out just one friend. What a wonderful dream that is for me! Oh and Pat is on the right track--the food would have to be catered in as we wouldn't want to waste time cooking.

Cool contest Carolyn. My blog is located at http://catsnqlts2.blogspot.com. I'm off to add your link to my latest posting.

sandra said...

Well, as I´m crazy for patchwork and quilting and in my country that's not usual, I would take my best friend to the USA and Australia and learn, learn, learn from the experts! Next, shopping a lot of fabrics and materials, because here the only shop existing is 300Km away from where I live!
If there was any money left, we would travel and travel... (Maybe it's a very selfish thought...)

Fiesta said...

I would build a quilting studio in my home.

Marilyn R said...

Hmmmm What would I do with that money? I would buy a longarm machine and give my sewing area a make over. My best friend isn't a quilter, but she does scrapbook. I would give her a scrapbooking room make over. I would then take the left over money and use it for a trip where my friend and I could quilt and scrapbook to our hearts delight! My blog is at marilynpiecebypiece.blogspot.com

MakesMeSmile said...

hmmm.. First off - host a Retreat, all expenses paid, for my online buddies. After that, the money would be spent on a professional organizer to come into my house and make me a sewing area, cabinets and all

An addition on my house so that I don't have to sew in the dark, dank, stinky basement!! I lost my sewing room when kid #3 came along :-)

I rarely win anything, but it's worth a try!..I see many of my familiar quilters have been here already!

Granny Lyn said...

ok,,,,dreaming of a limo, with unlimited Frap's, and Annie and I are stopping at every quilt shop, junk shop, and yard sale from Michigan to the Florida Keys, then New York to the Pacific, followed by a UPS driver to send the haul home.
I just love a good road trip!

Love the awesome contest!

JOinTAS said...

My bestest friend from high school would have to join me on this trip. It's been over 20 years since we knocked around together and we've kept in touch, she's a fellow quilter, amongst other crafts and we are so like minded. We'd go to Australia's biggest quilt show and spend and spend, machines, fabrics, threads, new scissors, we'd have a blast. While in Melbourne I'd have to take her to see a musical starring Anthony Warlow, we'd have the best seats and I'd arrange a surprise meeting with him afterwards cause she's his biggest fan. Oh it's so nice to dream!!!

KicsiKató said...

What would I do with that money? I would buy an own island with own rules. It would be a peace-island, where the people like each other and are never angry and nervous. Of course I would have there a biiiiig house with a huge sewing room in it (near the swimming pool:)). There would be all the patterns and accessories I've ever aspired to. And for my best friend... I would attain all her dreams, to make her smiling.

Here's my blog: kicsikato.blogspot.com

Simonetta said...

Ok this is a big beautiful dream! I would travel in America with my fried (other my dream in the drawer) ;)))
I would purchase a lot of fabrics and equipments for the my patchwork. Thank you for making to dream me ;)))Have a great week-end

Simonetta said...

Sorry me I forgot my blog:http://myquiltdream.blogspot.com/

Becky said...

Let's start with the top of the line computerized Gammill long arm. Second, my best quilting friend (hard to choose just one) and I would head out on a quilting cruise. After the cruise, we would create our own Shop Hop to quilt shops that we have never visited (Keepsake Quilting comes to mind as does Hancock of Paducah). Finally, we would head out on retreat to one of those glorious places we've read about in our quilting magazines. A week or two or just sewing our brains out. :) Thanks for allowinig me to dream.

julia said...

Hmmm...with $50,000 I would travel to the quilt shows in the USA - and I would buy fabric, fabric - eh, what elese? Right, fabric...and I would attend some classes in quilting and piecing, of course...perhaps in Australia, where my favourite designer sometimes are teaching...
Well, I would take my mom with me ;o) , and since there is a limit, I think at this point all the money is gone...
Puh, what a lovely daydream!
I've already posted your link on my blog (http://littlegirlquilts.blogspot.com)
Greetings,
Julia

Erin said...

Well what would I do? I would buy Yvonne a Millenium, then ask her for her long arm, since she is experienced she should have the best not me, then any money left over we would split..and I would ask her to go church, to thank God we had that kind of money to spend..it would have to be a miracle!!! the link to my blog is http://wwww.godoodlesnquilt.blogspot.com I hope you have a good weekend take care...!

Catherine said...

I would buy a really top of the line sewing machine for both of us, take a few trips to the big quilt shows in the U.S., purchase fabric, fabric and more fabric and one of the SLR digital cameras for each of us!
My blog is http://quiltobsession.blogspot.com/

lil said...

gosh, what could I do
Think I would fly to the US, get Lisa and tell her that I show her the beauty of the world, plenty of countries with amazing fabrics, plenty of quilt shops and classes(especially a class with one of the best applique teachers),
I want her to see the real Dear Jane quilt, we would spend tons of money, have great things to eat, meet stunning people
and at the end I would invite her on a small island in the indian ocean with a spa resort where she could get some more energy before returning to her family (she has such a hard life taking care of her ill children and rarely thinks about herself)
that lady has a heart of gold and deserves a special surprise

Suzy Quilter said...

Hmmmm...let's see. I'd absolutely purchase a longarm machine which I've been wanting forever. I'd also get the computerized Statler Stitcher for it, too. Then I'd quilt quilts for my sister, who is best friend but doesn't quilt, whenever she wanted me too. After that, I think it would be fun for us both to go on a quilter's cruise. While I'm taking classes, she can bask by the pool on the Lido Deck with a margarita in her hand. Hehehehe. What fun that would be!!!

Can I hire someone to finish all of my and my best friends UFO's while we go on vacation while both of our sewing rooms are being remodeled? My blog is :

This is my LIFE said...

I love this fantasy!! First I would have a room added to the house just to fill it up with my quilting things that are stashed everywhere. One of those glass rooms that are easily added to the patio area. Thenmy best friend and I would do a trip to Australia. I have always wanted to shop the quilt shops shown in Australian Patchwork and Quilting. Of course there probably won't be much money left since we will have to pay to have all our purchases shipped home. Sigh, that was sure a nice daydream.

Anonymous said...

I would live in a nice house with a secret garden in the country side and would have my very own sewing room, filled with baskets of Moda 3 sisters fabrics; there should be a cocker-spaniel at my feet while I sew; and there would off course be a nice husband coocking for me on an AGA cooking stove.
I would off course fit in a dress 38'size, and have lang dark curly hear.. yes, you can buy that -:) !!

Jo Jo said...

Oh wow $50k...I would have to buy a quilt shop. Then My best friend and I could play with fabric all day long! If there was any left over we would travel the world to all the trade shows and buy up big!!! I love your blog and have added a link... stop by mine when you get the chance I would love another visitor. Jo

The Calico Quilter said...

Oh, so easy! I would buy a longarm machine and build an extension on the house to hold it. Since my best friend is my husband (yes it's sappy but true) the home addition would also be a sunroom with big windows to open and let in the breezes so he could enjoy the room too. If there was money left over, I would build a deck outside the sunroom and add a gas grill for him too!

I'm the Calico Quilter and my blog is itsthecatshouse.blogspot.com.

Susanne said...

Hey Paula,

Annette said...

I would add a sewing room onto the back of my house with lots and lots of storage and fill it with fabrics and all the necessary supplies. Then me and my best friend would retreat there and create to our hearts content.

Jan in TN said...

How much does it cost to buy a quilt shop? I would put the $50,000 down on that, because I think the greatest thing in the world is to work at what you enjoy doing the most. For my friend? The next best thing is to work in what you love with your very best friend - I would make her my partner in the business.

Sorry, I don't have a blog.

JoAnne said...

I would make a huge donation to Ami Simms' Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (www.AlzQuilts.org)and then take my best friend on a weekend trip to the Biltmore in Asheville, NC. She's not a quilter but I bet I could get her to visit a few shops with me.

Irene's Quilting Corner said...

What would I do??? First I'd invest in a computerized long-arm quilting machine and remove some walls in this house to make a huge quilting studio for myself. After that, I think a quilting cruise for all of us would be in order! Also traveling to visit quilting friends and fabric shopping would have to be done.

dolls123 said...

Since I also love cruises me and BFF would go on the following quilt cruises:
Scandinavia and Russia Quilt Celebration
PANAMA CANAL & COSTA RICA
Africa: From Safaris to Fabric
Quilt Cruise with M'Liss Rae Hawley
