EQ Seasons Row Along

EQ Seasons Row AlongToday I get to announce a few more sponsors for EQ Seasons. It’s very exciting when a company writes you back that they are happy to participate. I’d like to thank Connecting Threads, Aurifil, Cherry’s Blossoms Patterns, and Nancy’s Notions and Northcott Fabrics for also joining in with some great prizes for ya’ll.

A special thank you to Northcott Fabrics, and Patti Carey who is a blog designer participating with us in this RAL. She jumped right in as one of the first companies to offer a giveaway without my even having to ask for it. They have been amazing to say the least. They supplied all the bloggers with two fabric choices, one being a background fabric, and the other a fabric of their choice for their rows and quilts. Now, they are offering a gift each week of the hop.. I am truly humbled that they have offered us such an amazing gift.. Read below to see what they are doing for you.

.Fat Quarter ShopHi Everyone, Today I’d like to let you know that we have a new sponsor for the Electric Quilt Seasons Row Along.

The Fat Quarter Shop is generously providing each blogger the ability to give a $25.00 gift certificate on their featured day of the Row Along.

In other words, 20 bloggers giving, 20 gifts… Thank you sew much for your generosity Fat Quarter Shop. We appreciate you more than you know.

I can’t wait for you to see the absolutely amazing rows that have been created for this Row Along and I know your really going to enjoy it.

If you don’t own it, we hope you’ll buy it, it’s so worth the money. In a few days I will give you a list of all the participating bloggers to.  I know it seems like your having to wait awhile till it starts, but September is just right around the corner.

I found a cute QAL today..

Hillside_QALDo you ever get on the web in your browser to do something and end up spending hours because you saw something else over and over again that interested you?

This happens to me more often than I care to admit. However, once in awhile I come upon something I’d like to share and today I found something I thought I’d like to share.

Those who know me, know I do not use cell phones, so Instagram and Twitter are services I don’t even subscribe to. The Hillside Houses Quilt-A-Long that I found today is via Instagram however, although she is also posting the pdfs on her blog for those who don’t want to use those small smart screens. I happened upon this QAL today quite by accident when I clicked on a blog logo for it at someone else’s site.

I love Quilt Alongs, they are like mini blocks of the month, usually starting and finishing within six to eight weeks. If your not careful, they can come along and start and finish before you ever know they were even posted. I try to visit blogs I like every day, but some people like myself don’t blog every day either. I also don’t always find “subscribe” buttons, or ways to follow some blogs and of course it’s just not possible to follow every single blog. Since I don’t use blogger as my platform for my blog, I also don’t get to see all the cool stuff happening over on those blogger blogs easily without an email and I don’t always get those blogger emails subscribers in my email to read about. This is why I wish other bloggers would use something like blogluvin, or feedly, or even Networked Blogs. I have a feedburner logo on my own site, but I have no idea if it even works or not.

Either or, this post isn’t suppose to be a rant.. 🙂 It’s suppose to be about a cool cute little Quilt Along I happened upon today over at Pretty Little Quilts. She’s already into the first 5 blocks, with two more posted to Craftsy today, but there are still five more blocks to go. She is posting the pdfs to Craftsy, and they are free, so that you’ll always have access to them once the QAL is over. So go on over and show her how much you like this QAL by leaving a comment.

Have a great day!!

Marian
