My Turn And A Giveaway!



This was so fun to come up with a block for the Blog hop.
I did want one that I could use different ways so you have 
to stop by again to see what else I did with my block.
I did do 2 but this was my favorite one.


Its a Star Flower done with applique, stitching and yo-yos.
This was so fun to watch come together. 
And who doesn't like to make yo-yos.


This is my other block:


Machine appliqued and then a running stitch.
Just in time for the 24th!


Now for the fun...
I am giving away a copy of
Quilter's Cookbook!


This cookbook was designed 
with the quilter in mind. 
The cover is an applique pattern 
that is included inside.
 It has patterns for a revers able apron, 
several dish towels,
 and a darling gingerbread girl picture.
 This book is also full of quilting hints, 
measurements, and cooking hints.
 All of the recipes are easy to follow and it has a lot of 
crock pot recipes to give you more time for quilting!

To get in on the drawing:

* leave a comment for 1 entry

Make sure I have a way to contact you since I know

WINNER!!

So now stop by the others:
July 16th
PolkaDotClassic

Thank you so much to Madame Samm
and Jane for doing such a fun hop and 
letting me join in the fun.

Your block is great! I love the friendly flying flag! You just have to smile when you look at it. I thought something was wrong with my computer..it took hours before I was able to make a comment.

I joined as a friend on facebook and I have become a follower of your blog.

VickiT said...

Love the blocks you've made, especially the Star Flower block. That's super cute. Love the Yo-yo's. Thanks for showing us.

VickiT said...

I'm not sure if I get a second comment or not. I am following your blog on GFC as well as ATOM blog feeds. I don't have a blog so there is no blog roll if that's what you are asking for the second entry.

Thank you anyway.
