Well here’s something new and different — I’ve been invited to take part in a Blog Hop that starts next Monday, June 22. A group of 10 blogging quilt designers, all from Minnesota are taking part in this adventure. Starting next week you can visit a new blogger every weekday. Each designer will have a free demo or pattern, show you a new technique and tell you a little bit about themselves. There will be some type of prize for those who visit the “blog of the day” and make a comment.
But that is not all — If you are really dedicated and visit each and every blog and post your comment, you will be entered in a drawing to win a phenomenal grand prize!
Stay tuned for more info on Friday and then the blog hop will start on Monday at Gudrun’s blog. The link to all of the blogs is listed below.
Please please tell your friends….blog about it….Tweet about it….anything to spread the word.
Here is the lineup of fabulous designers, all from Lake Woebegone country. (That’s somewhere in Minnesota for those of you who don’t tune into Prairie Home Companion…)
Let the fun begin!!!!
This is such a great idea, I can’t wait to see the different projects.
This blog hop should be fun!

Hey Shelly, I’ve been using my paintstiks alot with freezer paper stencils. I promise to take some photo and share with you.
I’d love to see the photos, Jane. I’m heading out to the San Francisco area for the next few days. I expect the weather to be a little more comfortable than the heat wave here in the midwest this week. The weather in MN is always crazy. We had frost on June 3rd and it will be about 90 degrees today. Go figure!
