UPDATE: WOW! Thank you everyone for stopping in! I am having trouble keeping up with the comments. So when we get to 150 follower I will have a followers drawing for a charm pack!. Tell your friends about the giveaway and the RWB Blog Hop! If I don't respond to every comment know that I read each of them and appreciate you signing up for the giveaway! I am overwhelmed by all the new followers! Just wonderful! Thanks again!
Today, July 6, 2012, is "In The Boon Docks" day in the Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop. . I am so excited to be included. I would like to thank Madame Samm from !Sew We Quilt! and Jane from Jane's fabric and quilts for letting me be apart of the blog hop. I love this blog hop, you get to visit a lot of different blogs, see many different styles of blocks, and enter giveaways! Since it is July "In The Boon Docks" is holding a "Christmas in July Giveaway"
I used (12) squares from two Prairie Paisley II Charm packs to make the block. Charm packs are wonderful, you get one of each design and see the designers complete line in 5"X5" squares.
I believe the name for this block is a " Postage Stamp Block". It measures 12.5 unfinished, 12" finished. It is (12) 5"X5" squares, made into 9 blocks and sewn together. There (36) 2" blocks in total. If anyone is interested in making this block I will write out a tutorial and post it on this blog. Just leave a comment that you are interested.
This is the blog hop list for July 6, 2012. Stop by these blogs for more RWB block ideas!

I love Christmas, so when I found out I was participating in a July blog hop, I had to have a Christmas Giveaway. I don't like to give away things I wouldn't want myself. I found a book I would like to own and bought two, same with the charm pack, so the winner will receive the same as this blogger. "Deck the Halls Quilts to Celebrate Christmas" by Cheryl Almgren Taylor, has projects for table runners, wall hangings and quilts in it. The charm pack "Yuletide Magic" by Erin McAllister has lots of useable colors and designs.
This giveaway is open to all who stop by and leave a comment answering this question: "What do you like to win in blog hops"? If you can receive mail I will mail it to you, if you are the winner! Followers can leave a second comment - saying "I am a follower", for an extra chance. If you are a no-reply blogger and do not leave a valid email, you cannot win! I have to email you to say "YOU WIN". One of my selfish joys in life are those emails. The giveaway closes on Monday, July 9th at 12:00 p.m. EST. Followed by a random drawing by a six year old. That is one of his great joys!
Thank you for stopping by I really hope you enjoyed your hop here in the boon docks. Please come by and visit again! Until later Lisa
