Quilter’s Blog Hop Party With Giveaways


Michelle over at the Quilting Gallery is hosting a Blog Hop Party and you’re invited!  Lots of bloggers are hosting giveaways, etc.  So, first, if you’re a new visitor, welcome…if you’re an old friend, welcome back!  I’ll keep this brief so you can hop on to the next stop.  I’m offering a set of blue fat quarters (four of them) to one winner and, yes, I can ship internationally.  Now, you don’t have to be a follower or jump through any hoops, just leave me a comment.  Perhaps a favorite party memory?  Or, really, anything you’d like to say….I love comments!

  75. Favorite party memory….my son feeding his first birthday cake to his sister 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway

  76. Hmm. This summer at my nephew’s one year old birthday party, he got a toddler sized four wheeler from his grandparents. It was a lot of fun, but prone to crashes! The best one involved my one year old nephew, my almost 2 year old twins, a slide, a four wheeler, and a toy shopping cart. Oh my goodness, life with young children is never boring!

  77. Great fabric and site. My memory was not a party but turned into one for my 3 year old grandson. Having lunch at Roadhouse Grill with myself and his uncle, country music on the jukebox and some of the waiters were doing a line dance and before we realized what had happened he was out there line dancing with them just like he knew the moves. One of the best times my brother and I ever had together. He loves my Grandson as if he was his own. Blessing, Jackie

  78. Thank you for the giveaway. My favorite party memory was just this year when we had my great grand daughters party at our lake at the beach. It was beautiful all day and the party was scheduled at 3pm. Just as everyone got in the water a terrible storm blew in and we all had to stay away from the beach.

  79. My favorite party memory was when our son turned five , we had a party for him and a little friend at the party asked him how old he was and his reply to the little girl is “I’m five going on six” , I guess he was trying to impress her . Thanks for the chance .

  80. Thanks for the chance to win!

  81. My favourite party memory … hmm, maybe I should forget them? Love your pic in the header! I went to London on a post-university trip, and I was supposed to get a tour of the inner workings of the bridge, but on the day I visited my tour guide (a cousin) was sick!

  137. Hi, I don’t have any favorite party memory, but a favorite Christmas memory is making homemade root beer about two weeks before Christmas, so it would be ready to drink. We used a huge metal tub,and Dad would stir it with a big wooden spoon. Mom would add in the sugar; we, my brother and I, would add two bottles, one for each of us, of McCormick’s Root Beer; and Dad would add in the water, and stir. He’d have the tub on a kitchen chair, and then use a tube to siphon out the root beer into brown bottles arranged on a square sheet cake pan. Dad, my brother, and I would sit on the floor until all the bottles were filled, then Mom would wipe the necks of the bottles, then hand them to Dad so he could cap them. This was all done while listening to Christmas music, and while watching our beagle, Duke, lick up all the drips from the floor. It’s a memory I cherish.
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give away.

    The blue fat quarters are a perfect. They go into a quilt for my son. His fave color is blue. Don’t really have a favorite party memory. A favorite memory is of a dear neighbor. Her daughter and I brought in a very small garter snake to show her. She about beat us to death with a broom before we got out of the house. Neither of us knew she hated snakes. Days later we all were laughing to tears about it. May she rest in peace.

  153. When my kids were little, we would usually have theme parties for their birthdays. They weren’t too elaborate but my kids still talk about their favorites.

  160. We have deemed ourselves the FLAWs. We get together often but it is the holiday parties that are so much fun when we get together playing fun and silly games and eating dinner. Our husbands join in the fun when we the Former Ladies At Work gather together. Lovely fabric in your giveaway!

  161. My son was born in February during the school winter break, so we usually leave the very cold northern New York and head to grandma’s in not quite as cold Virginia. One year it was so warm that when we had his party, I was outside grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. I never thought that I would be having an outdoors party for my winter baby.

  162. Me encanta el azul.
    Soy seguidora de su bloc,10000 cariños.

  163. My favorite party memory was the Super Bowl Party I went to back in 1988 while I was in HS. I was invited because the host and hostess wanted to introduce me to someone. It turned out the host liked me instead— after they broke up, several months later, him and I started dating, eventually got married and are still together now.

  164. Beautiful fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win

  165. I like the idea of a UFO list. I don’t think I could bear to start one however much I like to cross things off. I have a rubber tote of projects I haven’t even cut yet. Silly job cuts into my sewing time.

  166. Best party memory – meeting my hubby for the first time when I was 15, a second time when I was 26, and the third (and the right!) time when I was 28.

  167. I have wonderful memories of gathering around my grandmother’s player piano every year for her annual Christmas party. We all took turns working the foot petals to get the rolls to turn. It was a workout and sing-along all in one!
