We are on Facebook also as you can tell by looking at that right hand column again. And you can also join our "circle of friends" on Google+Followers!  Pretty Fun Stuff!

To be a part of our giveaway you don't have to join any of the above mentioned things - but to make this blog hop give-away extra sweet - I'm going to do a special giveaway if you help us get to 6000 likes on our FaceBook page.  We are just now tipping over he 5,000 mark!  Would you "Like" us on Facebook?  I promise the extra give-away will be extra sweet!




On my blog I talk a lot about reproduction fabrics, patterns, antique quilts etc,  I am a pattern designer in the quilting world and I've written hundreds of patterns and authored 4 soon to be 6 quilting related books!  I like to chit chat and share what I do in my normal life on a typical day -  mostly quilt!  I share my pets and my kids cute and funny moments too sometimes, but I really try to keep my blog all about quilting.  I offer a free pattern or two now and than, plus I also announce sales and give-aways here too!

Now, Let's get on with the fun stuff:

My Give-Away For The Quilter's Blog Hop Party:

Do you like to English Paper Piece or want to learn?

Well I'm giving away all of the above papers and/or mylar templates for you to English Paper Piece.  I have done it and it's really easy - but I just prefer to hand stitch my quilts!

Also included in this give-away is this book:


This book is titled Piecing It All Together by JoAnne Louis and Chris Moline.  There are 10 english paper piecing projects in the book plus basic instruction on how to paper piece.

And wait - I'm not finished yet!


Above are a few more papers and three finished flower garden blocks.  Not shown in the picture are three more sets of fabrics to make three more blocks.  This was actually a project I started a few years ago and never finished.  It was originally going to be a table runner from a Blackbird Designs book that I cannot find and cannot seem to locate on their website!  Anyhow - these are too cute to be left sitting here and I know someone will get a kick out of finishing a project with them!

To enter he give-away: share your favorite quilting tip in the comments section below on this blog-post.  What's the one thing you now know that you wish you knew when you first started quilting?  What's the best advice you would give to a new quilter?  Winner will be randomly chosen on March 14th, 2013.

After you have commented here, move on to some more give aways!
