Blog Hop Party Giveaway

If you are here because of the Birthday Blog Hop Party at Quilting Gallery, WELCOME! This is where I share my quilting, crafting, and recipe adventures. 

I am happy to be participating in the 5th Birthday Celebration of Quilting Gallery.  Thank you Michele for organizing this blog hop and congratulations to you!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways
 
 
My latest project was inspired by The Quilting Gallery's Quilts for Sandy Block Drive.   The drive is ongoing and you can still get in on helping to send quilts to the victims of that awful storm.   I made 4 blocks for the drive and had so much fun with the wonky log cabin blocks, I decided to make a quilt of them for a family dirty Santa gift exchange.  Since it's scrappy, it will fit with the price limit and will be a fun gift.   I used the Quilting Gallery's Wonky Scrappy Log Cabin Tutorial 
to make the quilt top.


 
Giveaway:
 
For the Blog Hop Party, I'm giving away a fabric stash builder of 6 fat quarters. 
 

 
 
To enter my random drawing:
  1. Leave a comment below about how you will use this sweet bundle
  2. If you are a new or old follower, leave a comment and tell me you are
 
That's 2 sweet chances to win!  Anyone can enter, but be sure I can get in contact with you (e-mail, google, etc.) if you are the winner.  Entries close December 15th at 11 pm eastern. Winner will be announced by Monday December 17th. 
 
There are over 150 bloggers participating in giveaways over at Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party so go hopping. 
 
December is a month of giving,
