Giving Thanks-Quilters' Blog Hop Party!

There's a party going on and you're invited!  Quilters from around the globe will giving away all sorts of yummy quilting and crafting prizes.  So I hope you take the time to hop over to The Quilting Gallery, give Michelle the wonderful host some quilty love.  She'll be posting the list of participants later this afternoon.  The Giving Thanks Quilters' Blog Hop will start today Nov. 21 and end on 26th.
  
Before sharing my blog hop prize I wanted to share a new free pattern designed by yours truly.  Just a little peek.  My two test blocks. 
I'll be posting the instructions for the quilt sometime next week.  I'll be a smaller quilt, about 50x60.   A great size for a wall hanging or a lap quilt.  

Well since this blog hop is all about FREE STUFF I should let the new visitors know about the free patterns here on my blog.   Both of these patterns below are free on the tutorials tab at the top of blog.  Don't forget to send me pictures if you make one of my quilt patterns.  It just tickles me pink!  

Now it's PARTY TIME!
I've a fat quarter bundle for one lucky follower.  Le Jardin by P&B Textiles.  
All you need to do is leave a comment and be a follower.  What kind of comment?  Well how about you tell me what your thankful for.  It could be something big or small.  I'll start it out by saying I'm thankful for water pressure in the shower!  Because for about 2 weeks this month we had very little water pressure.  I've long hair and I couldn't get the shampoo out of my hair.  And don't flush the toilet UNTIL after you wash your hands if  you have little water pressure.  It's the little things that we take for granted.  The give away will close on Nov. 26, 2013 at midnight and the winner will be announced on Wednesday Nov. 27, 2013 using a random number generator.   
Good luck to everyone and thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk!
