The story behind the bowls..
( you will probably know this by heart by the end of 28 days_

It all started with making a gift for a sweet friend
and sharing that gift on my other blog ( with my final posting)
and many asking me where it came from.

Each time I shared another stack, another flood of
emails came in..."where did you get that?"

Flash to today...a blog hop came about..

165 ladies who made these bowls...
will be sharing what their bowls look like..

That I am pretty excited about..
Their BOWLS according to
their selections of fabrics, their appliques
each one will
be totally different...
I have not seen but one completed creation.
I will be as surprised as you...

See what one share of links from an inquiry about paper piecing
 from  Sharon at Vroomans quilts did?
See what one person who knows how 
to make time did ? ( hey, that is me lol)

  1. great picks...I had 2 or 3 that linked me to this right? I hate to miss someone.

    1. You are correct Marjorie...some of our ladies well....did not show sadly...
      we just wanted to see their names anyway lol

  2. Another day of beautiful bowls! I love the little quilt hangers on the first one--very cute. Enjoy the day!

    1. Hello Carol...ahhh you must be excited we are coming to an end...or sad ....but I think more was a good day...yes it was..

    2. More sad than is so fun to wake up each morning to see what everyone has done with these bowls. But, oh yes there is a "but", September 10th will have me seeing dots every morning, so I'm sure my sadness will disappear quite quickly. :O)

  3. RosemaryB here: no shows make me sad :-( I was hoping by the time I got home from Church they would have magically appeared.
    I am going to go have a looks. I love the choices you made, these are great! I adore the blue bowls with the yellow!

    Oh and Good morning :-)

    1. Hello Rosemary. and good morning to you..still morning here and yes after I said my prayers too...I thought they may come...but that is ok..
      look at who came to the party lol

  4. Again great winners today, the bloghop is almost at an end.... oh no... :-(

    1. Hello Pauline...I know I know...are you in our Wicked one...? say yes

  5. I really enjoy visiting the blogs today and what wonderful picks! Great choices!

  6. I was here too early for you this morning... ha! :) I am glad I came back.. I thought today might have been a rest day. :)

    Don't you just love all of these marvelous bowls!!

  7. Back to check on the list, so sad that Carol's (and your) generousity of extending the number and days has been soured by the no-shows. Otherwise, today's ladies did a wonderful job of inspiring us.

  8. I enjoyed the last two days worth of bowls today!(I ended up making an unexpected trip across the country to help with grandchildren.) There were some very creative bowls in the works! ...I'm off to play Hide and Seek!

  9. ich bin sehr glücklich, es hat so viel Spaß gemacht
    my english is not so good
    i am very happy, thank you
    greetings from cologne

  10. Great choices again. I loved the embroidery on the first one.
