Blog Hop Party 2011

It's time for a Blog Hop Party! Over 250 bloggers from all over the world are participating. Each blogger is promising a give-away to someone who comments on their post. I'm giving away a collection of quilt books from the Michigan State University Museum. They include:
Quilts from the Albert and Merry
Silber Collection
Michigan Quilts: 150 Years of a
Textile Tradition

Great Lakes, Great Quilts

Mary Schafer and Her Quilts
Michigan Quilts postcards



It officially starts tomorrow, December 10 and runs through December 17 (but if you comment today, I'll still include you). On December 18, one of the comments will be randomly selected to receive the books and postcards (sorry, no international shipping). Make sure and click on the logo to find the other blogs and their give-aways.
Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


And now for a quilt...
I made this quilt for my new grand-nephew Charlie. It includes the Cat in the Hat,
the Grinch, giraffes, elephants, birds, and lots of other animals.
It's a snowball and nine patch. It was fun to make and only took me a week!

  1. That is a beautiful quilt, Beth! I love how it looks a lot more complicated that a snowball quilt. Fabulous! And those books all sound great! Thanks for the chance!

  83. Hi Beth,
    I am homesick for everything there but the 37 degrees posted at the top of your page! You are in my hometown, & I am an MSU alum so this would mean a lot to me. I visited the campus quilt museum last summer with my mom, who still lives there locally. You are a very lucky lady. I love the quilt too.

  100. My 4 yr old son is sitting on my lap and he thought your quilt for your grand nephew looks like what you'd see looking out of a submarine window. Oh, no, now he's distracted by Riley. He's now off to write Santa a note for a Riley dog. I'm not sure how Dunlop his current dog is going to feel about that :) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway chance at the facinating books!Happy holidays from northern Maryland!
