Quilter's Blog Hop Party

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.  
Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

Quilter's Blog Hop Party with Giveaways  

August 26 - September 3




Quilter's Gallery is hosting a CELEBRATE BACK TO SCHOOL DAYS Blog Hop Party!

I just found out about it as I was scrolling through my Google Reader this morning so I rushed downstairs to pull some goodies for the GIVEAWAY.  Yes, ALL the blogs participating will be giving something away.

Welcome!!!  to all of the blog hoppers who are stopping by this week!!!  Let me introduce myself a little.
I have only been blogging a few months so my blog is still low on content, it is something I am working to change.  I have several tutorials in the works and will be participating in a few more Blog Hops in the next few months.  There is a little more info about me in the right sidebar.  The buttons for the upcoming Hops are there too.  I made my first quilts in the mid 70's and started teaching quilting classes in the early 90's so you can see I have been doing this a while.

While I owned my quilt shop I did a good bit of designing.  I have plans to share some of those designs as well as some new ones here.  I have a enormous number of UFOs and quilt tops that need attention but I am easily distracted by my fabric stash and continue to start new projects. You can see some of my new projects by clicking on Design Wall on my Labels list in the sidebar.  The post on My Studio gives you just a little peak of my stash and projects.  I have a goal of finishing at least 12 projects this year but so far progress has been slow. Projects that I hope to will complete can be seen in this UFO Challenge Pictures  post.  I hope while you are here you will poke around a little and see what I've been up to lately!

Now, where was I?  Oh yeah,  Giveaway Prizes.  This is open to everybody I will ship overseas.  Since I owned a quilt shop I have a bit of inventory that I can pull from.  Here is what I grabbed.  Hope you like it.


Harvest Time

This is a cute little paper pieced pumpkin pattern by MH Designs.


Ties and Tails

For all you cat lovers this is a cute cat pattern by judydidit designs.



Love at First Cluck

If you are a chicken lover, this pattern by Mary Lou & Company will make you smile.



Ahh!! Bali Batiks

If you LOVE batiks like I do these will make you happy! 

*Note: The fabric colors with the patterns is more accurate.  I removed the bags from the patterns to eliminate the glare when photographing.  They are happy back in their bags now waiting for their new home.  I'm promoting this giveaway at  It's a blog party. 

The giveaway will be open until midnight September 3rd.  I will draw for a winner Tuesday, September 4th.

I am giving away ALL 3 Patterns pictured above and AND 
one fat quarter of each of the 3 Bali Batiks!

Here is ALL you have to do to enter my drawing:

Enter a Comment below telling me which of the patterns above you like the best and which of the batik fabrics you like the best.

For a SECOND CHANCE to win become a follower of my blog.

Giveaway is over.

After you leave your comments go check out what other blogs are giving away.  
The list is here at Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party
