I am so happy to have participated in The Winter Blues Blog Hop Party! I was really looking to attract some visitors to my new site, and the hop exceeded expectations; my giveaway received 167 entries!
And I did not expect to actually do the hop, but of course I was lured right in by the chance to WIN one of the amazing giveaways, and spent many hours surfing around to admire all the quilting posts and photos. As a result, I did not get a whole lot of sewing done this week, but I am now following some amazing sites, AND I now have followers to help keep me motivated!
I did attend my quilt guild meeting and completed two tulip blocks. The pattern used is from Four Corners, titled Field of Flowers. I chose to do just two small blocks that I will turn into something or other (wallhangings?) for spring: (That second one is just sitting on the orange stripe fabric)
So, time to announce the lucky winner of the drawing for my Heather Bailey fabric bundle:
Mama Said Sew said...
"I love your owl mug rug! Thanks for the giveaway. ;)"
I did not have entry requirements so I was pleasantly surprised that so many quilters chose to follow me on GFC and through email. So pleased in fact, I decided to throw all the followers names into a bowl for an additional giveaway!
Couldn't quite part with any more of my Heather Bailey, but thought this is also springtime-ish, and likely to appeal to my new quilting buddies, so I cut 1/4 yard of each:
Two are by Sandy Hendreson for Farmer's Market, and the third is called 'Seedings'.
And the winner of this 'follower appreciatation' bonus prize is:
Mary, who happens to be from my 'home' state, Washington!
Hope you like it Mary!
Thank you all for participating!
