Quilter's Blog Hop Party

This Giveaway is now "CLOSED".


The Quilting Gallery is having Quilter's Blog Hop Party for their 5th Birthday and In The Boon Docks is joining in the party! Happy Birthday Quilting Gallery!.

If you’re new to the Quilting Gallery .. Michele Foster, aka Mishka, is the hostess at the Gallery. I hope you’ll spend a few minutes checking out the various sections of the site.

The giveaway starts with a great book with lots of projects for my favorite holiday - Christmas From The Heart - Better Homes and Gardens

Something for the Traditional Quilter: Northern Solitude Charm Pack by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics

Then of course something for the Modern Quilter: Ombre Dots Fabric Collection by Riley Blake - a piece of 10" x 32" of gray, and scraps from the whole line, enough are precut into the wedge shape you could make your own Dresden Plate Block like I did.

The giveaway is opened until December 15, 2012 at midnight!

It is opened to all my friends in blogland no matter where you live. I will ship Internationally. But if you are a no-reply blogger please leave an email address so I can contact you. If I cannot reach you you can't win.

How to win? You have updated 3 chances to win everything you see!

1. Question: Are you a traditional or modern quilter? I love both, so this giveaway would be right up my alley! I hope you will like it too.

2. If you are a follower you get an extra chance! If you become a new follower please let me know in your comment.

UPDATE
3. If you go to Wicked Sisters Boutique and like them. You can add an bonus entry! They are BFF's with daughter and make awesome hair bows! They have great items for baby showers which I will show you later in the week. Help them out and you get an extra chance!

One lucky winner will receive all three gifts: then you can try both. Most quilters I know love a challenge.

I am learning when joining large blog hops my email blows up which is wonderful but sometimes I cannot keep up! Please be understanding with me, I love all your comment and read each one but sometimes it takes me awhile. I have the flu so I am probably in bed. Life happens to us all. Have fun hopping!

Thank you for stopping by In The Boon Docks and I hope you enjoy the Blog Hop! Lisa

  10. I have been using traditional patterns but using more modern fabrics. I just finished my first truly modern quilt, Groove. It is awesome. One of the ladies that I sew with weekly told me it wasn't really a quilt. It is fabric cut up and pieced back together in a pattern so in my mind that makes a quilt.
