Now where did my bingo card go? (And a giveaway!)

This giveaway is closed now, but thank you for your interest!

Excuse me, I'm searching for my card . . . even tho the four of us who are calling the words can't win a prize, it is a lot of fun to follow along and place a button or two!

(Muttering) I thought sure it was right here. No, maybe over by the fat quarters. Hmmm.  I think I just found a clue . . . Remember this?



At the time, I thought that Padsworth was designing a barn quilt block. Now look what I found in my notebook --- he was planning something special for May for Me!


(Can you see the drawing there?)

Ah, yes, my little green friend, I am on to your scheme . . .
He was sewing the basting stitches across the card as quick as a hoppy toad on an asphalt driveway:



So you have appropriated my bingo card to be your cape? Alright, hold still and I'll snap your picture:


What's that, Padsworth? 
Well yes, you are a frog of some renown.
And you say you are going to be a super hero?  Well, what will you fight to protect?

Patchwork, applique and the right to fearless free motion quilting!

Hey, I like the sound of that!  Now you just need a name --- Caped Crusader is taken. We need it to be just right for a special green frog like you. I'll have to think on it.


In the meantime, here are the bingo words for today, from Lilypadquilting.


  N--Berries (no specific berries)
  O--Snake
  O--Bird(s)
  N--Snowman(men)
  B--Watermelon

Be sure to stop in at the other three blogs (I hope you have them bookmarked by now! Grin) which are VroomansQuilts, HillbillyHandiworks, and CraftySewingandQuilting.

Now before you run off, leave me a comment telling me what you think Padsworth's superhero name should be . . . and you'll be entered into a drawing to receive this wonderful book from Martingale Publishing:



Remember Fast and Fun First Quilts? You can check out my review at this post. It's a super book, and if you would like to win, just be a follower (one comment) and tell me a super-hero-ish name for Padsworth (second comment) and you'll have two chances to win!
We'll leave this open til midnight on Sunday, May 6, and announce our winner the next day!


Good luck!


Love,

  5. I am a follower - ah-ha, knew I put my Bingo Card on my hanger for a reason - my super hero furries can't get it down to 'cape-up' with you.

  6. I put Padsworth's name into the super hero name generator (http://www.blogthings.com/superheronamegenerator/) and came up with this -
    Your Superhero Name is The Manga Shogun
    Your Superpower is Invisibility
    Your Weakness is Fish
    Your Weapon is Your Vibro Blowgun
    Your Mode of Transportation is Sled
    HMMMMMM!!! Not sure that works. So did it again but that one was worse!!
    So I went here - http://www.seventhsanctum.com/generate.php?Genname=superheronameorg
    and used a couple of different generic terms and got MASTER SLASHER. The perfect name for a sewing superhero!!
    Love your work Padsworth - hope these help or you can find a name at one of these sites.

    oh well I look forward to see what has been called each day. Thanks patty

    ReplyDelete
  30. Superhero name: The Incredible Quilting Frog.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think Padsworth should be Sir Frog Stitch protecting up all from having to Rip It, Rip It, Rip It.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete

  47. Green Avenger
    Of course I'm a follower
    Loved your blog this am!!! Needed a good laugh!
    No bingo button for me :(

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am a very hoppy, happy follower

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hmmm, my comment made me think of a name, LOL
    How about Hopalong Padsworth? And I think his weapons should be a rotary cutter and a seam ripper.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Padsworth the Quilting Crusader! Saving quilters everywhere from the dreaded seam ripper! Armed with his trusty 12.5" square, rotary blade and 1/4" foot, he is on a crusade to remind us all to measure twice, cut once, and always sew with a scant 1/4"!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I tried Green Avenger in Spanish. Sounded pretty good... except I've heard Sir Padsworth's voice before on a tutorial many moons ago - I swear he is a dead ringer for Winston Churchill! Quite a lovely British accent. Vengador Verde just wasn't going to do for a caped wonder like Padsworth. Hmmm, wonder about Latin? P.S. I love the looks of that book!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Mighty Frog (he reminds me of Mighty Mouse) :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. The Green Blocker protector of stashes every where!

    ReplyDelete
  54. A superhero name - I can't come up with something fun. A tagline, I can... Leapin' Lilypads! (Imagine Robin saying it - it works!)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am already a follower although relatively a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am horrible at naming things but here's a shot at naming him from me ~ "The Green Blur" since he was so quick to grab your Bingo card and start fashioning himsef a fabulous cape.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Padswoth Patchwork Super Hero!

  60. Hahahahaha, your frog's so stinking cute, can I have him?, I'd call him Super Patchwork, he looks stunning with a cape!!!!!!!, hmmm I was staring at him and got another one, Super Friclicious, sounds smart, isn't it?, it's from Fr(og) and Fabr(ic) and de(licious), LOL

    ReplyDelete
