Beat the Winter Blues – Quilters’ Blog Hop Party

I thought I'd join in on the fun in the Quilters’ Blog Hop Party

 But 1st I thought I'd show off my lastest baby quilt.
I have been home from work with a tooth ache and was able to get this finished.
I needed it for Saturday so I finished it in record time.
I didn't do a lot of quilting on it but sometimes less is better.


 On to the giveaway.
I collected up a few things to give away.
Here is what I have so far.......... 
From Here to Eternity - a fun and easy pattern 

Garden Pinwheels - I really like this one

Fabric Dance - another one I like alot

Right Triangles - this can be used with your GO dies

Wonder Waller by Lazy Girl designs - this was on my to-do list.

And last but not least a few notions to go with the patterns - marking pen, scissors and a needle inserter.

This is all part of the

Beat the Winter Blues – Quilters’ Blog Hop Party


The party will last til March 14th (Thursday) and will have tons of blogs to visit.
You can find a list of all the participating blogs on the Quilting Gallery page

I knew I had forgotten something yesterday when I wrote this post.
Added to the list are 2 charm packs one Welcome to Bear Country by Moda and the other Kashmir designed by Jenny Beyer.
If I find something else to throw in I will do so at the end

To enter leave a comment letting me know where you're from.
(for the 1st 37 entrants I will count you twice since I just added this)
For a second entry be or become a follower
I will ship internationally as well.

Thank you for following my blog

Hi im from Ontario Canada. wow great giveaway

usagypsy said...

Hmm, sometimes I have to sit and try to remember where I'm from :) Born and raised in NJ. This is where I always will be from, it's in my blood. But in between I've lived in many places. The one place I spent most of my life was in Alaska, 30 plus years! Now I'm kind of in transition. I'm living in Nevada right now. In the next year or so I hope to get back to my roots, the east coast :)
