Gentle reminder Bowls with Borders ( just the topper, not quilted optional) begins MONDAY. Carol ( just Carol) I am going to change that to THE Full of Light CAROL... from JUST LET ME QUILT is hosting.. If you love her now, you will love her even more after this....She has no easy task to manage over 160+ in this blog hop...But I have every confidence in her and our other Cheerleaders who I know are helping out behind the scenes...
WE are both excited to see what 160+ ladies have made with their design from our very own dear Regina on Her English Page and her German page for her friends there and here too
her German Page.
How we met--- Sharon from Vrooman Quilts posted a comment with links to various Paper Piecers...Thanks to Sharon I came across one pattern that struck me as a special gift for a special friend.
I ordered the pattern and Regina was very sweet to help if needed.
this is mine, before quilting and binding..!
I started working on it immediately, very well illustrated and a fairly easy paper piece pattern...I started piecing mine. This friend I am making it for loves bright colors...sew bright she got...I kept showing
photos on my personal blog ( that I have shut down now except for a personal sew long) and within
days I was asked where did you get that...I told them of course..Then I had this brainstorm...oh yes they come swift and fury...and I thought of a round robin, but that was not one of my best.... Sew my backup plan was how about a blog hop..Yes let's do a Blog HOP....
I connected with Regina, once more...and asked her what she thought about it and would she be willing
to give portions of her pattern for free to all those who signed up and hopped with us...She was eager
and didn't even hesitate. I also stated if people came to get the pattern for free and did not follow through they were to pay her for the pattern. She thought that was more than fair.. And some have and I have dealt with that, as I know situations come up and they just can't do it....all of them sew far have paid Regina...Now that is a nice gesture...
Ohhh then I connected with Carol asked her if she would be interested, she did not even hesitate to get her purple pom poms ..and I designed the bowls to reflect her favourite colours... WE posted it and within days, actually hours we had over 160 names...WOW...OUR biggest blog hop ever .....
And it starts this MONDAY AUGUST 13th..... ARE YOU all STITCHING ? lol
Regina has been wonderful and I am pleased that her friends will be joining in the party and on
Monday, we will have a UNIVERSAL blog hop...
Here is what I know about this DEAR Lady..
