Quilter's Blog Hop Party with Give-aways!

I am excited to be joining the Blog Hop Party sponsored by Quilting Bloggers this weekend. I had a little trouble deciding what I should give away, though. I have been working on new versions of three of my favorite patterns this summer, so I decided to give one of them away, but which one? (putting my thinking cap on...)


The Circle and Spin is one of my favorite to make, as it is an easier way to make circular patterns in a quilt without a lot of worry. You vary the size of the loops and things don't have to match up exactly, but you get the circular motion. I have made this one out of batiks as well as asian fabrics. It's gorgeous in  any fabric. The pattern makes a queen size quilt.

The Potato Chip Quilt is fun to make as well and very addictive. The blocks go together quickly and showcase 12 fabrics of your choice in this great, graphic design.  The pattern shows you how to make this quilt in several sizes. 

The Peas in a Pod quilt is great for a throw or baby quilt. I like the simplicity of it and you can't go wrong with a piano key border. I have made it larger as well. It's easy enough for a beginner to make, but fun for any quilter. 
                                  

Since I couldn't decide which one to give away, I decided it would be winner's choice. Plus I'm giving away these four 1/2 yd. cuts of fabric to give you a start with whichever pattern you choose.

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment on this post about which pattern you would choose if you win. I will ship this prize anywhere, so good luck! This giveaway is open until Sept. 3!

You can click on the Blog Hop Party Link here or in my sidebar to find the list of blogs participating. Hope you win some goodies!
