A giveaway that'll have you seeing Stars...

Hello! Welcome to the Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop!
First and foremost, a big thank you to Madame Samm for organizing this outrageousness and Jane for getting everyone up and running!


I’ll keep it short and sweet….
I found this nifty paper pieced block on Quilter’s Cache and thought it would be fun to make for you! 


I considered making more blocks, but decided that you might appreciate my (cough, cough) talents if I made this block into a reusable, washable, roll-up bag and gave it away to a blog hopper.
Sound good??


Yes, I think this might be an OPEN

and SHUT case!!




Click here to see a Pinterest Board of all the blocks!


Here's a lineup for today's blocks:
July 15th
bacon then eggs (that's me)
a Rafflecopter giveaway

  6. Love the bag made from that gorgeous star block! I have a collection of bags made by friends all over the world and I tote them to quilt guild each month with my show and tell. Would love to add yours to my growing collection.

    I need to make a photo of the hall tree my granddaddy made for his barber shop that sits in my sewing studio and create a blog post. I hang my bags from it. :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!
