Red, White & Blue Blog Hop and Blogiversary Celebration Giveaway!

I'm posting a little early in the Red, White, & Blue Blog Hop.  You don't mind, do you?



Friday is my day to show off a red, white and blue block.  Be sure to check out my partners in Friday's blog hop.
 

I want to show you a block I made for a partner in a block swap. My partner requested a block that would be appropriate for a Quilts of Valor quilt.  I found this block called "Patriots" which seemed just perfect.



"Patriots"

With those diagonal arrows coming in from all corners, I think this would be stunning made up into a quilt.  This is a 12-inch block (12 1/2-inch unfinished).

The instructions for the Patriots block can be found on Quilters Cache.  This is a paper-pieced block which accounts for all those nice sharp corners.  If you are new to paper-piecing, there are some excellent tutorials on YouTube.  I happen to like this one from Karen Johnson at Connecting Threads:


In the video, she is using the Add-A-Quarter rulers, and I wouldn't do paper-piecing without them.  They are very handy tools and make the whole process so much easier.


The Add-An-Eighth ruler is also worth having.  I like it for when I'm paper-piecing with very small pieces.


Finally, I like the Carol Doak papers as well.


The paper is thin, like newsprint.  I can run it through my laser printer and through my ink jet printer.  When I first learned to paper piece, I used regular computer paper.  I've switched to Carol Doak's paper simply because it makes it so much easier to remove the paper during the paper-piecing process. 

And Friday is my 2nd Blogiversary!


I'm so glad you stopped by because I'm having a giveaway to celebrate the day!  I'm giving away a fat quarter bundle of these great Riley Blake fabrics:


Would you like to win them?  Here's what you need to do.

This being my Blogiversary means I'm thankful for all of you who have followed along and left such kind and encouraging comments. So first, you must be a follower, new or well-seasoned.  This giveaway is for followers only.  Then, all you need to do is leave one comment (one comment only, please) telling me where you're writing from.

I will ship internationally.  Please be sure I have a way to contact you via email.  If I can't contact you, you can't win.  I'll leave this giveaway open until Monday at midnight, and I'll announce the winner on my blog on Tuesday, July 17th.  Good luck!

Congratulations on your blogiversary! Is that a little skunk I spy on fab #3??? We got a turn feeding the baby skunk here at our zoo, and boy, was that fun! After feeding and a little play, and a few little pfffts (I'm sure quite accidental, while he's learning to control himself), he curled up in a little bitty ball in the crook made by my elbow and hip as I was sitting.

Today I write this from Victoria, TX. A couple of weeks ago, it was Brownsville, TX, as far south as you can go & still be in the continental USA. (straight across the Gulf from Key West)

Happy blogoversary. I'm a follower from North Carolina. Thanks for the great giveaway. (For paper foundation piecing, I use 40-sheet pads of tracing paper that I buy at Michaels for $2.99. I tape it to a sheet of copy paper & run it through my printer - Jane Hall suggested this in an online quilt class. It tears easily & I can see the fabric through it.)

Margaret said...

I am writing from beautiful Prosper Corners near Falmouth Michigan. It is a lovely sunny day. We need rain, all the corn crops around my house are drying up and they are only going to get one cutting of hay if it doesn't rain soon. Not good for my area since it is mostly dairy farms. My husband works in the dairy industry so he needs them to stay in business so he can stay employed. If you have a minute, please pray for rain for our area.

Bud and Marsha said...

Hi Barbara. I'm writing from Vermont, my summer location.
