House Cleaning my Blog with a Giveaway

>> Thursday, October 20, 2011

 I finally got all of these blocks and pieces put together. Then I rotated it when I put it back up on the design wall and really like it this way!  

I needed to clear off my design wall to start this -

A Christmas quilt! This block is the middle block. It's the basket block I designed for the Layer Cake Quilt Along with one minor change. I changed the handle to have curves as I didn't have to make it out of 2 10 inch squares so I had enough fabric to make the 2 7/8 inch square.

What blocks are going around the basket?  Here's a hint!

The blog tour starts November 7th and my date is November 9th. There are lots of new to me designers in this issue. I looking forward to seeing their blocks. Of course, there will be a giveaway of an issue of the magazine on my blog tour date. You don't want to miss out so you might consider following me if you don't already!

I've been tidying up my blog to get ready for the tour - kind of like cleaning the house before company comes:) I put a linkbar across the top of my blog to make it easier to click around and find my stuff. I also put the sign up box for getting my new blog posts sent to your email box directly above my posts. 
What else would you change or add?

I also noticed this morning that I have reached that magic number of 100 followers!

Thank you so much for following my blog. 
I really enjoy sharing my quilting adventures with you.

What stinkin' cute pillow!! I know you said you couldn't reply to me, and I have clicked and looked over the whole thing. Some others I am not even able to comment on. I think I may have figured it is the browser. I will comment here, and then also on another browser. Thanks, Sarah!
100 followers - yipppeeee!!!

Cute pillow. I've never done anything with the selvedges, but have some here I could experiment with!

Congrats on 100 followers, too! That is so neat!
