Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Welcome!!  Today The Quilting Gallery is beating the Winter Blues.  SO are you ready to visit all the blogs that are giving away some fun goodies??

Today I am giving away a copy of Material Obsession 2!

 Traditional quilts with a modern flair.  Here is  a little snapshot of what's in store.






If you are new to my blog, I am very happy to meet you.  If you are an old friend, it's so good that you have come by to visit.  If you would like this amazing quilt book to go home with you, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling me where you are from.  I love meeting friends from all over the world, and it's so exciting to see where my readers are writing from.  Giveaway will be open until St. Patrick's Day at which time I will close the comments. Winner will be contacted by email, so please BE SURE that you have a way to be contacted. If you are a NO-REPLY blogger, leave your email address.  If I cannot contact you, I will choose another winner.

Thanks Quilting Gallery for hosting the Blog Hop party!  And thank you for stopping by!   I hope you will come back soon.
