Today is my DAY!!! The blocks will be posted on FRIDAYS..until you have collected them all…Have you been following along already or is this the first you have heard about it? I did post awhile back saying it was happening…but no worries you can still go and capture those 3 previous blocks…Here is my block…GROW
I love being part of a blog hop!!! Yes, it is another thing I have to do…but when you see the finished quilts made from these events it makes it all worth while, I just helped someone (Kathy) with their setting for the Patriotic blog hop we did last year…her quilt is going to be amazing!!
I truly loved Rhonda’s Potting Shed block and wanted to design something that would go along with her block…so GROW is what I have come up with..lots of flowers and a cute little lady bug enjoying them…the spouts on the bottom have not yet blossomed so thus the name…grow…not all gardening is about the bloom…it is the process and the excitement of watching it ALL happen…those first few sprouts are just as celebrated as the blooms! Even though the blooms get all the glory…kind of like quilt making right??? The finished quilt gets all the glory but for me it’s all about the whole process…

Listed below are the other designers participating in the blog hop…make sure you go to each site…download their pattern and support them by buying their kit…if you cannot do this for everyone or you are doing your own wools/fabric…please try to support them in other ways…things like making sure you comment or LIKE/ Share their posts on social media platforms- buy from their websites- share with your sewing group/guild what you are working on… just by being excited is contagious and some of them will possibly buy from us as well..post in your FB groups what you are working on and who’s design it is….and so on…you get it…right? Support doesn’t alway mean with your money …just make sure you follow the rules involved with copyrights and do not give anyone another designers work…show or tell them where they can get it themselves…
THANK YOU for Blog Hopping with us ALL…We sure APPRECIATE you as our customers!!! Without you events like this would not be happening!!!
