I’m playing along with the Quilter’s Blog Hop. It’s a party! With free stuff!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Let’s get to the good stuff. I’m giving away a $10 gift certificate to Pink Castle Fabrics.


In case you are new around here, this is one of the projects I’m working on now.  Hexy MF is one of my long term works in progress.  That’s my polite way of saying that the quilt-a-long was in 2012 and just this week I finished the first half of my blocks. I get distracted easily – don’t judge.


I based my fabric selections on this pink Outfoxed print.  I’m excited to start cutting up the second half of my fabric selections because I’m tired of hand piecing the fabrics I’ve been using for a year.  In this group there will be foxes and hedgehogs to entertain me!

I hate having to do all kinds of stuff to sign up for a giveaway so I’m not making you do anything but leave a comment. The giveaway closes on November 26.

The Winner Is :  Tamie!
