Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop and Giveaway Day 4

It's hard to believe it is already day 4 of the
 Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop.

There has been such a wide assortment of gifts.
I have so many ideas swimming in my head from the inspiration.

I invited bloggers to start the season of giving with a blog hop
celebrating the art of sewing or quilting
and then 

Some of the stitched gifts are small and some are large.

Some are personal and some are charitable donations.

A week of gift-giving inspiration!

I'm excited to introduce today's line-up of bloggers.

I am always moved by the giving hearts of so many quilters
love reading the stories behind the gifts.

The gifts we give aren't always personal
are from just wanting to make a difference for someone.

People aren't the only ones that need the comfort of quilts.

As an Island Batik Ambassador
one of the first events of the year was to make a rep sample of the secret fabric collection that was received in our ambassador boxes.
  Rep samples provide the Island Batik sales reps with samples of collections that show shops what the fabrics look like when sewn together.
The hope is that the samples, made to be the size of small kennel quilts will be donated to the Small Kennel Quilt Program once shops are finished with the samples.

The Quilt Pattern Magazine sponsors a volunteer organization that provides small kennel quilts to shelters in times of need.
Right now with the California fires, there is a great need for kennel quilts.

In the spirit of giving, I am having a
One of my favorite online fabric shops is 
One of my readers will receive a $25.00 Gift Card to go SHOPPING!!!
Come back every day of the hop, visit all the blog posts of the day, leave a comment, and enter the giveaway.
(I've extended the time to enter to allow for everyone to visit all the blogs)
The winner will be announced on Monday, November 18th, 2019.

Kennel quilts sound terrific, and great projects for 4-H and scout groups, the animals love the warmth....not how perfectly they are constructed :)
