On The 12 Day of Christmas Caroling Final Thoughts, and Halloween Sayings 08 Release…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

And last but not least, the final winners for the Christmas Caroling Row Along… Congratulations to everyone.

But let me just say, we can’t do this without you. By visiting our blogs, reading our posts, downloading or purchasing our patterns, even creating something from us, you compliment us whether we ever get to see your creation or not. It’s very humbling and it is the biggest reason why I know I am still blogging away.

To the sponsors, a HUGE Thank you… your generosity and kindness helps bring visitors to our blogs and lets people know more about your products.

To the participating bloggers, you all give me a lot of credit for bringing this event altogether and I truly thank you for thinking of me. I honestly don’t think it takes that much time to do this and I love doing it in the first place. However, knowing the sheer amount of work involved in just deciding to participate, racking your mind for an idea to do, playing with shapes until you find just what you want, and creating the pattern, and then giving it away freely is a lot to ask of anyone, let alone having to put up with my rants, when things go wrong. You are all an amazing group of women and I am honored and humbled to be in the presence of your talent and creativity.  To me, you are the heart of this event, without you, no way this happens, so thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for participating in this event with me.

Halloween Sayings

While many of these blocks also come in a fun mug rug size, you could take 9 of the blocks and create a tablecloth or a couch throw, or even a wallhanging…

or just for fun, make a door hanger by taking 4 of the blocks and creating them vertically.

There is just so much fun you can have with these patterns.

Cya Monday for a Sunbonnet Sue release and news about Electric Quilt 8. I can tell you all now, I was honored to be asked to be a beta tester for the new version of the software. The upgrade will be released October 23, with the new full version coming in November. To upgrade, you must already be an EQ7 owner. I will just say this, I have to update many of my video lessons on Electric Quilt

  1. My gosh, you are one BUSY woman! That is a lot of winners for just the end of the hop. Amazing! I hope everyone who won a Calibre coupon loves the new mat as much as I do. It is the best thing ever! I do like the pumpkin, as you know. I’ll be getting it before too long … and probably most of the other ones, too!

  2. I would love to thank you and all of the wonderfully talented bloggers that participated for making this row along SEW much fun! I am also incredibly excited to win the button giveaway. Thank you!

  3. Thank you once again for hosting the row along! You did a wonderful job! Congratulations to all of the winners!!

  4. Thank you Marion for all the time and work you have put into the Row A Long! I appreciate all you have done, the creativity and inspiration of you and those that participated in the row designs and all the sponsors & gifts. Blessings to you!

  5. Thanks for the row a-long. I was able to download a few for free as I was gone on vacation. Did anyone else have a problem opening the website for Quilt in Piece? I was never able to open it in Firefox or Google Chrome so I was not able to see their row.

  6. Marian-thank you so very much for all you do to make this happen. this was my first time for doing this and I love each and every row. Wasn’t quite sure how to sign up for some of the prizes. I also want to thank the row participants for all their hard work to produce such wonderful rows and the sponsors too. I had downloaded most of the rows to my laptop and then the most awful thing we all know will happen one day- my computer crashed – I was so upset about that. I was able to get them all back. Some I sent emails to and they sent me their row even though it was past the free deadline. What a great group of people. So this is a reminder to everyone — back up your computer frequently. Thanks again.

  7. Marian, Thank you for all you do and thank you to all the participants. Yes it is a lot of work what all the designers did and I know that I sincerely am grateful for everyone’s generosity. Thank you everyone!
