IN case you are here for the first time today..hind these bowls..

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. The last days I have been enjoying all the bowls. I had told myself I wasn't going to start a new project but I am getting weak. Can someone please tell me where I find the pattern for the bowls ?

    1. Hello Liz, you can purchase directly from regina here ...info@reginagrewe.de.
      when you make bowls. be sure to show us..we will add them to our pinterest board..

  2. Getting there aren't we....lol. Some great stacks of bowls....yes; there are a couple that are probably just late today; but I couldn't find a place to comment on Vogelines Patchwork....and there are a couple from the first days that I couldn't find. But overall this had gone extremely well. Thanks for this...lots of fun. The work is exceptional!!!

    1. Hello Marjorie and you are right..there were some wordpress and diff't blogs that were hard to find...because they were hidden..you are still in the draw, only a few with you...Can we talk about inspiration wow...glad you have been hopping along with us.

    2. The 2nd blog late on the draw has her post up now.. I just went for a visit. :)

  3. There were certainly some pretty bowls today! I loved them all!
    I couldn't find a place to leave a comment on Heidi's blog, but she did a great job!

    1. Hi Linda...and yes I could say it over and over again, it is hard not to love them all.
      and yes no worries about Heidi's it was a difficult to find where you can connect with her..still in the riding for the surprise gifts..I am still waiting for them too arrive..

  4. Beautiful and creative bowls today! I couldn't find a place to comment on Heidi's blog either. Thanks for a enjoyable morning....now off to quilt!

    1. Hello Connie and not to worry about Heidis... hope you had a good quilting day!

  5. How on earth can anyone choose a winner? And does this bog hop really have to end?

    1. Hello Chris..and yes difficult, 2nd? and yes it has to, sew we can start yet another...if we always ate beef we would tire of it..think haute cuisine of blog hops..we want to give you variety

  6. Again, today, the bowls are just wonderful. I love the indivual interpretation of them.

    1. Hello N.Mom, and yes we could not agree more with you. Nice to see you out there..you must join sometime

  7. Hi, I couldn't figure out how to let Heidi's Patchwork know how much I like her stack of bowls. Not sure where the English translate button was. Some I have been able to work out but not Heidi's. Please let her know how much I liked them. Thank you. Glad she was picked!
    Cathy R

    1. HI Cathy and yes we will let her know...and yes hers was delightful..!

  8. I cannot comment on Vogelines Patchwork's blog, what a pitty! Comments are locked except for Wordpress members...

  9. Me again... Heidi's website is not a blog, so we cannot comment neither.
    After a fex days away without a connection, I spent a long time yesterday and today but I am now up to date!

    1. You can "Like" her post and then it will give you a comment box.

    2. Ah Sophie...good you joined in and kept trying...sorry you missed those we could not connect with ...we have them on file..sew you can still be in the riding for the giveaways@

  10. I just got caught up on todays bowls! Been busy shopping for a refrigerator today. ughh!

    But I had the blog hop to look forward to this evening so now I am all smiles.

    LOVE that Christmas set of bowls! Those fabrics POP!

    1. Hi Thearica...are they not just sew beautiful that you want them for yourself lol all of them were a lovely POP to our day..glad you were here!

  11. The bowls are so wonderful! Everyday I'm blown away with how creative everyone is! The same pattern and so much can be done with it, amazing. Like some of the other comments mentioned, I Liked Heidi's blog and then was able to leave her some comment love on her FB page. (actually I hit the "send" key by mistake and posted psrt of a sentence, so just added another comment and started over). Can't wait for tomorrow's bowls!

    1. Hello Jodi, and no worries about Heidis, you were alone there, many had troubles. YOU are in the riding for prize yes lol
