Blog Hop Party and Giveaway

It's no surprise that I love giveaways. I love hosting and entering giveaways. The Quilting Gallery has a huge blog hop celebrating St. Patrick's Day.  It begins today March 16th and ends March 23rd. I've been thinking of having another giveaway. It's also fun to participate in a large Blog Hop. Check on  Saturday to see the list of blogs participating in the hop. Last December there were over 200 blogs participating. 

For my giveaway, I've collected several items. At the Sewing and Craft Expo last weekend, I visited the Primitive Gatherings' booth.  I purchased two copies of this pattern, 45 & Life To Go. Lisa Bongean, the designer, graciously autographed the pattern for the winner of my giveaway.   I'm dreaming of colorways for my quilt. I think I'll do a scrappy version. I've also found an extra Dresden Plate ruler in my sewing room. Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill fame has had some interesting blog posts of making Dresden Plate blocks using this ruler. And finally, I love little notebooks. Mary Englebreit is a favorite of mine.  March is National Craft Month and March 17th is National Quilting Day as well as St. Patrick's Day.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on your favorite craft or how you are celebrating National Quilting Day or St. Patrick's Day. Enjoy the blog hop and Good luck!

Thanks to Elizabeth at Such a Sew and Sew for organizing the giveaway!  I think this is post number 400 for me!  It's an opportunity to plan another giveaway. Please check back soon.....

The winner of the Strawberry Pie pattern is  Diane, who blogs as the Joyful Reader.   Congratulations, Diane!.

I love the Three Sisters Line by Moda - many old ones, and I love their new Papillon. Great prints, great tone on tones.
