Blog Hop 5th Year Birthday Celebration and Giveaway

This week we are celebrating the 5th Birthday of Quilting Gallery/Michele Foster's blog. Congratulations Michele. You are an asset to the Quilting Community. Michele keeps herself busy setting up lots of fun blog hops, swaps, charity drives and so much more.  She also has her new side-kick, Milo, and he does keep her busy!  Way to go Michele.

In celebration of this event, I am hosting a giveaway starting now and running through next Sunday, December 16th at 8:00pm CST.  I will be giving away a Fat Eight bundle of mixed Christmas Fabrics from the 1990's. These fabrics are so neat and fun.  I know you will like them.

Simple and easy entries:
1.  Please follow my blog via GFC or email.  Leave a comment telling me if you are a new or old
follower and how you follow.
2.  Comment telling me what you would like to see in the New Year on my blog.

That's it kids.  I will try to put that bundle of fabric together tomorrow and get a picture added here.  Be sure to visit all the participants of this Blog Hop Birthday Celebration. 
 I will have a link in the morning listing all the participants.
Thanks, have fun and good luck to you all!

  1. I follow via GFC. I have some 1990's Christmas fabric from a lame attempt to make a little advent tree quilt. It would be great to have more from that era to add.

  106. 1990's fabric would very welcome. During that time I wasn't buying any fabric or sewing as I was busy raising three boys alone. I'd love to see what I missed during that period of time. I love Christmas fabric.

    I am now following via GFC and by email.
    Thank you.

  107. As I am so new to your blog, I really don't know what to say as far as what I'd like to see next year on your blog. I'll admit not going backward now reading past posts to try to come up with something but in the next few weeks I will try to take some time to do so.

    The one thing I love seeing on blogs is well written tutorials to help me learn new things I have little to no knowledge about.

    I also had to comment about the charity you support after noticing it was in Joplin. I know that area down that way well and visited many times a year as a child. My Grandfather owned the Ben Franklin dime store in Neosho for years and years. I LOVE the Neosho/Joplin area.
