Back to School Blog Hop and Giveaway

Giveaway is now closed. Thank you everyone for visiting and entering.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

It's that time of year when all the kiddos head back to school. The house is going to be so quiet. I love sleeping in and hanging out with them late into the night, but that's coming to an end in a few short days. 
I guess you could say it would be a party since I do get to spend more time at my sewing machine doing fun stuff ;-D 
I am joining Michelle at the Quilting Gallery for her Back to School Blog Hop Party. This is going to be sew much fun! I am going to be giving away the following:

A fat quarter bundle of yummy pink fabrics. There are 4 fat quarters in this bundle.

 3 patterns, Indygo Junction's bunny, Talking Blocks and Simple Pleasures quilting patterns.

This giveaway bundle is open to US visitors only. International visitors will win the pattern package. If an international visitor is drawn I will do a drawing for the fat quarters to giveaway to one visitor right here in the US.

Become a follower and leave a comment below. How about tell me what you love about fall.That's it. Easy peasy.

Giveaway will end Sept. 3rd at 10:00 pm PST. I will draw a winner shortly after via random.org.
