Red White Blue Last Day of our Blog Hop


What an amazing Hop this has been. It was a pleasure being your tour guide. I now need more fabrics, more books and more time for all the ideas I received from this wonderful ride!

A huge thank you to Madame Samm for allowing me to host this hop.

A huge that you to all the participants who worked so hard to and did inspire us. This is what quilting is all about.

Helping and inspiring each other.

I (Jane) will leave the button up on my side-bar so we can go back and start all over from the beginning. I know I will there are many new blocks in my future.

BUT Wait...

We are not done


Day 16 is right here...
