Blog Hop Party


It really is better to give than receive, so I jumped at a chance to join the Blog Hop Party Give Away!  If you haven't heard, there are 240 bloggers signed up so you can see what others are doing and maybe win something as well.
If you're here for the first time because of the hop, I hope you'll take the time to check out my older posts on my applique projects...

as well as some of the crazy piecing things I've been doing lately.

I'm also learning how to free motion quilt on my home machine.

If any of those things interest you, I hope you'll stick around and become a follower.

If you're just here with the hopes to win something that's OK too.  I put together some 5" charms from my (embarrassingly large) stash of batiks.

Can I interest you in some green?

Blue?

Purple?

No one who really knows me will be able to believe that I bought pastels.

And there's the orangy-pinks...


and the bluey-pinks.

I'll be sending out these sets of charms to 6 different people.   For a chance to win, just leave a comment and include which of these would be your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.  No-reply bloggers who don't leave an email with the comment will not qualify to win.

On Dec 17th  I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners.
The winners have been chosen!  See the Dec 17th Post. 

Meanwhile, back at Mid-Century-Suburban Ranch [house], we've pulled out the Christmas decorations.  I'm sure none of you will be surprised to learn that I have a delightfully tacky fuchsia metalic tree as well as a green one with lots of hot pink and lime green decorations.  Anna made the tree skirt on the right.  I had given Mitzi a bunch of stack & whack hexies to finish into donation quilts.  Turns out so did someone else.  She thought these were the ones I gave her and she made a little table topper.  I like them better than the ones I gave her, so I gracefully accepted and use it as the tree skirt on the left.  The rectangle was a round robin that I did when I was in a quilt guild in Idaho Falls.  Everyone else's center grew to a bed size quilt.  Mine came back a mere 6" larger than it started.  It sat in the UFO bin until I bought the tree, then decided it  coordinated.  I think of it as one of those really useless sizes for a project, much the same way I think of Mug Rugs.  Because of that, when we saw the cat claiming it as hers it earned the title "The Butt Rug".

Purples, pastels and either pink are my choices in order. Your machine quilting is wonderful! I gave up on quilting on my DSM. I am a follower too.

Cathy H said...

Love the butt rug.....my favourites are pink, purple and blue....keep up with the machine quilting..it looks great......

Jen said...

Butt rug! You're too cute! I live the turquoise or pink. I am starting to fall in love with batiks. I want to start building my stash ;) happy hopping!

Sallie said...

I'd choose blue, purple, and bluey-pink. Thanks for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!

Julie Fukuda said...

What?? No takers on the greens? Seriously, I am trying to join the hopping group but not being as much of a computer person as a quilter, I may not get it figured out by tomorrow.

Kathy H said...

I love the way cats claim anything lying around as their own. I used to read the paper with it lying on the floor in front of me and our cat would lie down on it every time. all your colors are beautiful.

Quilter in the Gap said...

i would be happy with any of them...seriously no preference whatsoever. I think they are all great and you are ever so generous. I love the cat...was there Christmas decorations in that picture?

Ella said...

Gorgeous batiks! I'd go purple, green, blue.

Stitches said...

I love all those colors but in order, I like: green, purple and pastels, all great colors to live with. Thanks for the chance to win..

Connie said...

I love Batiks! My choices are Purple, Pink, Green or whatever....love them all. Your kitty is so cute on her "butt rug! Thanks!

Salley said...

Mug Rugs to me, are just fancy pot holders :(
Mitzi looks smug... has she found the Christmas pudding already? Thus , perhaps its a SMUG rug.

gill said...

Great fabrics!
Green blue purple would be my choice!
Thank you for your generosity!

LynCC said...

"delightfully tacky" is so much fun. :D And what a gorgeous kitty. Was your Robin quilt supposed to stay small, or did they drop the ball on yours?

What gorgeous batiks - I'd choose purple or any of the pinks

Archie the wonder dog said...

How on earth did your RR only grow by 6"?! Love the 'cat under the tree' photo - is she guarding the chocolate decorations?! My preference would be blue/purple/bluey-pink - thank you!

Ethel said...

Love the cat photo. They do have their way of claiming whatever space they want. Mine has a basket, which she ignores -- until I reclaim it and re-purpose it. It's more fun that way.

Colors? Purple, green, any other color of the rainbow ...

Thanks for your great blog. I'm an avid follower.

Janet said...

Blue, purple, green. Your cat looks so cute under the tree.

I love the green, blue, and purple in any order. Your cat is just like mine, as soon as the tree skirt is out, he never sleeps anywhere else! I love your tutorial on back basting. I wonder if you could baste by machine. I bet I could use my embroidery machine to baste it and skip the tracing step.
Lots to think about. Thank-you for the chance to win and the great site. By the way, as I type my keyboard is on top of my cat!
