Blog Hop Party with Giveaways!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


Who doesn't love a giveaway? Follow the link above to a whole list of wonderful blogs that will be giving away bunches of prizes over the next week.

At the time I purchased my layer cake of Sew Stitchy by Aneela Hoey I actually bought 2. I fully intended to have a giveaway with one cake and keep one for myself. And this hop has presented the perfect opportunity.

All you have to do for a chance to win the Sew Stitchy layer cake is leave a comment below telling me the name of your favorite book on Quilting or other fabric crafts. If you don't have a favorite book, then how about your favorite block to make.
ETA: You really must leave a comment answering one of the questions to actually be entered. If you only click on the rafflecopter entry without a comment your entry won't be valid.
One entry per person please. International entries are welcome, as I will ship anywhere.

Giveaway is open until September 3, 2012. Thanks for stopping by and good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway
