Day 3 of the Minnesota Designer’s Blog Hop

Wow!  What a day yesterday.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday and for all the fun comments.  I got to meet so many new quilters, along with hearing from some regulars readers.   In fact there were so many blog hoppers, that we had our busiest day ever on the blog, with a record high number of visitors.  So thanks everyone – you made my day!  I’m happy to see that everyone is so anxious to learn some new techniques and meet some of the designers in Minnesota.  I will announce the winners of the Little Charmers patterns after the Blog Hop, so stop back then to see if you are the winner.  I know some of you were concerned when your comments didn’t pop up right away.  As a first time commenter on my blog, you comment is held until I approve you.  Once you are approved, you can comment anytime and it will show up right away.  I have been trying to keep up with approving all the new commenters, so those that commented yesterday, should all be up now and entered into the drawings for prizes.  I also had 2 or 3 people that weren’t able to download the free pattern.  If you had trouble with it, just e-mail me at, and I’ll try sending you a copy a different way.  You can also send any pictures of your finished Charmed wall quilt to that address, so I can see your show-and-tell.  You know how I love color options!


Now, as part of day three, you must go over and visit Celine.  She is the featured designer today.  Her blog has a tutorial on half-square triangles, and will give you some hints on the math behind this block.   Again, be sure to leave a comment on Celine’s blog to be entered into the drawing for the Blog Hop prizes.  Happy Blog Hopping and see you again tomorrow!
