Quilter's Blog Hop Party

Blog Hop Party

Welcome!! Are you ready to party?? I have to admit, the Quilters Blog Hop party caught me by surprise this time. But as I have participated before, I did not want to miss out of sharing a little giveaway this time around.

If you have visited my blog before, you know that I love scrap quilts and scrappy projects. So when I found this book "Scrap Basket Sewing" I thought it would be perfect for a giveaway.

And with fall just a few weeks away, I'm including fabric to make your first project.


No hoops to jump through. Leave a comment below. One entry per person You can tell me where you are from, as all are welcome and I always enjoy seeing where my readers are located. Please be sure I have a way to contact you. Giveaway will be open until Monday September 3rd.

Be sure to stop by and visit the other participants of the Quilter's Blog Hop party. And I hope you will come back and visit again.

PS - I've added a second prize. Hope over HERE but leave a comment only on this Blog Hop post.

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.

this looks like a great book...I'm a frugal quilter, and save small scraps. If they are truly too small to use, I put them in a bag that hangs off my sewing chair (along with all my thread cut-offs, etc) and use those to stuff decorative things, or as a core with a softer surround for pillow inserts. Thanks for the great give-away :D
