Blog Hop Party & Baby Quilts!

It's the fifth birthday of the Quilter's Gallery, and to celebrate, they're hosting a Blog Hop Party --These are always a lot of fun! This time around, there are more than 150 bloggers participating.

I'm giving away one of my recent baby quilts. The winner can choose which one, to be sent to the winner, or the winner's favorite charity, or whoever they know who'd like a baby quilt.


You can read more about the individual quilts here -- Blue Pinwheels, Scrappy RingsSoft Baby Hearts, Blue Barn Raising.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post before 11:59pm PST December 18, 2012.

If you're one of my regular readers, you know that I love making baby quilts. They're quick, they're fun, and they're a great way to use up scraps of fabric that might not be happy in quilts for your own home. (I'm talking about pink kittens and Disney characters -- nothing hideous or inappropriate. Those gambling coyotes I keep using as an example of ugly fabric didn't make it into a baby quilt!)
 
I didn't make as many baby quilts as I'd hoped to this year. In 2013, I'm planning to motivate myself with peer pressure. I'll be posting baby quilt patterns on my blog and hosting a linky party. Join me for Lets Make Baby Quilts! if you'd like to play along.

Today (December 10) is the last day to enter my Nancy Drew giveaway. Mystery author Joanna Campbell Slan is giving away a mystery a day to my readers from Decemeber 7 through the 18th -- come back and enter each day for a chance to win.

I will be taking knitted baby blankets to our local hospital for new mothers on Christmas Day and I would love to take one of your quilts with me. Most of the Moms at Santa Rosa Hospital are either Military wives or low income moms and they appreciate the handmade items I deliver.. we had one lady that made the smallest hats and booties I have ever seen.. the nursery nurses said they put these on the little ones that don't make it for their moms to see them and for their burial, something I never thought about till then

Tanya said...

Thanks for chance to win. I like the heart one.

Jennifer Gail said...

I like the blue barn raising. Thanks

skelly said...

Great idea and very generous of you. My quilting guild has decided to start making quilts to give to our local food bank during our cold winters. One of these baby quilts would be a great start.

Deb said...

What a very generous giveaway for the holidays! I'd love to be included.

TheStylishHome said...

LOVE them! I'd love to win one...and if I could bring myself to do it, I'd gift it to some newborns that are due early next year...otherwise, I'll have to make my own *grin*
Thank you!

How beautiful, and how generous of you to give away such a labor of love! Someone will be blessed!
