Let the Blog Tour Begin!!!

I am participating in the 1st Annual Quilt Blog that was organized by Sally Johnson of Sally's Quilting Corner.  Our blog hop will be active from 7:00 a.m. (EasternTime) on Friday until Saturday at 7:00 p.m. (EasternTime), only 18 hours. There are just a few of us and we would love it if you would "hop" to our blogs and check the quilts that we have posted for you to look at.  I have posted some pictures of Christmas quilts that I have made over the years. I have a little "blog candy" to give away too, its the Quiltmaker "100 Blocks" Volume 4, a  special edition magazine. You will need to become one of my followers (if you already are a follower, great!) and leave a comment on this post. I will draw a random number on Saturday from the comments after the blog closes and post the winner soon afterwards. 

 



Here are some pictures of my favorite Christmas quilt. It is called "Welcome to the North Pole" and is a pattern from "Piece O' Cake" designs. It was so much fun to make and I made it with a friend and that makes it even more special. I hope you like it and don't forget that you can click on the picture and it should enlarge it. Thanks for looking and at the bottom of this post is the list of others that have participated so scroll down and check their blogs and pictures out too.

And just a couple more items that I made.
Christmas Tree skirt, I made 3 of these for gifts for my kids.
This was a mystery quilt by Debbie Caffery

I wish to take this moment to thank all of the people who made comments and who took the time to come and visit us for out first Blog Tour of Quilts.  I want to especially thank all of the participants who took time out of their busy holiday schedule to make projects or just posted projects on their sites so we could enjoy looking at their wonderful creations.

All your Christmas quilts are beautiful, especially all the extra embellishments on your North Pole quilt. So special. Thanks for the blog candy offer. Would be a wonderful book to have.
