Bowls and Borders Blog HOP IS FULL, 169 participants.


  UPDATe

Had everyone received their pattern?????


Good Morning ALL

We have had an overwhelming response to the bowls
BOWLS with BORDERS

Effectively immediately, we cannot accept
any more participants..

Everyone who has signed up 169 + of you,
( and yes that is it) lol
will receive the pattern  FREE on July 1st.

This is a FREE pattern, REGINA has
been gracious to share her gift of Paper Piecing
with all of you...
UNDER 1 CONDITION..
If you do not participate, or you have a good excuse 
that you cannot play along.... YOU WILL BE
CHARGED 5 EURO's .....
Sew be sure if you are making this commitment,
you will be making your stack of bowls...YOU will
have 6 weeks to do this... ( I did mine in 3 days)
We have all of your emails and sew does Regina,
SEW if you cancel out after you have received the pattern,
I will send REGINA a note to invoice YOU.

FAIR, I think sew!
If you feel at this moment you cannot make
the commitment, please let CAROL know
before JULY 1st....

I look sew forward to seeing what you all will
create....

We have some on a waiting list, sew cross
your fingers ladies...you still might get a chance to participate.

My best





 Yes today is the day to 
sign up for the Bowls with Borders..
and how exciting this has been. 
Ok, I speak for myself because I got to make it first...
Here is my progress sew far..

This will be our button above, I just have to make
the code, sew come on back later...
you have till July 1st to place this button on your blog.

FREE Pattern only for those who participate in the blog hop.
YOU do not have to have a blog, we will host your photos.
Those who do not want to participate will be given
Regina;s links on July 1st. ( you can purchase directly from her.
cost is 5 Euros) 



I had done all the vertical stitching, today I will work on the horizontal.
and tomorrow I will be binding it...
The sun was just setting when I got these shots...



And of course my rag doll cat Sumatra, who loves the camera
somehow managed to get in this shot too!



Carol will be managing this blog hop, Carol is witty, organized
does some amazing quilts and is certainly an asset to our quilting world

Here is  Carol's blog

Isn't her banner captivating?

Well you will sign up with Carol, here is her email addy,
soswift6@aol.com

you will send off your name and url if you have a blog
and please let us know if you do not have a blog, we will
post your pictures on either Carol's blog or this one..

I  have been constant contact with Regina, she will be
home from holidays,  on July 1st and will provide the pattern pieces
for FREE for those who will be in our blog hop.
If you just want the pattern, you will have to purchase it directly 
from her. 

Only those who participate in bowls with borders
will get the pattern for FREE. I think that is gracious
of Regina, she has many of her German friends who will
be playing along. The most wonderful thing about
the quilting world is our quilts speak for us...
In this case, lot's of bowls will be popping up 
in August....

You have from July 1st to August 13-28th
to complete your bowls....

Carol will assign you dates of your day on the blog hop
Next Saturday. 

I will assist her too...

Those who are followers of Carol's and this blog
will be eligible for prizes....If you are in it, you can win it!

You can make a stack of 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19 and so on..
I am going to make yet another too!

This is a paper piecing pattern but really easy to put together
if you need assistance check this out..
Elaine's method is what got me hooked on P.P. 


Hope all this helps...

Sew please connect with Carol, and she will
gather all of your names and url's and keep you posted...
I will set up a list, HERE, when it is final.

Bowls for Borders will be open until JULY 7th

  9. I'm in. I've never done paper piecing and have to admit, I'm a bit afraid, but this looks like an easy commitment. It's a small project and with a forced deadline and a must show at the end, will make me at least give it a try. My favorite color is red, if I'm in the running for my very own bowl :)
