Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting!  All the good wishes for my husband are so much appreciated!  He seems to be doing better and I am so thankful for that.

I love flowers with fragrance however tulips are near and dear to my heart because I was fortunate and got to live in The Netherlands for four years during hubby's military career. I looked forward to Keukenhof each year and all the variety of tulips and COLOR! Thanks for the chance...I've been seeing many post about your rulers too!

Quiltmaker 100 Block Blog Tour

Welcome!

It is so nice to once again be included in the magazine and the blog tour!  I love to hear from everyone and hope that you will comment for a chance to win a copy of the magazine plus much more!



The block that is included in the Quiltmaker 100 Block Volume 5 is called Diamond Eyes.  It may not be a surprise to some of you that one of my favorite elements in a block and quilts as well, is the diamond shape.  I think it adds beauty to the quilts and some different elements.  Here is my block:



Since my husband has been ill and I have been working on getting ready for Market, I decided to do some give-aways instead of a project.  I hope that you understand and although I don't have alot of time, I can do some great give-aways.  If you make a comment, you will be entered to win one of the following:

First, the magazine is giving away a copy of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 5.

Second, my newest rulers will be debuting at Market.  It is a "mini" Fit to be Quarter and is called Fit to be Quarter 2.5.  It works just like the Fit to be Quarter but it's only 2 1/2".  SO cute!  I am giving away 8 of these!  It is so new, it's not even on my website yet!



Third, there have been quite a few people blogging about 2 of my rulers: Fit to be Geese and Mini Fit to be Geese.  Thanks Kathie and Thelma!  The Fit to be Geese ruler can be used for my block so I decided to give away 3 of these.  Also, I am giving away 2 Mini Fit to be Geese rulers. 





So, in all you have 14 chances to win something...better odds than the lotto!  All you have to do is make a comment on the following:

Since it is spring, what is your favorite flower?  Anyone who knows me, knows mine are tulips.  I have been receiving a lot of tulips from friends and family lately to help make me smile and they certainly have!  Thank you!

Good luck in the drawing and I close the drawing on Saturday night and will announce the winner Monday morning.  Please make sure that if you do not want to leave your email address, that you watch Monday morning to see if you have won. 

Thank you everyone who has wished the best for my husband and I.  He is doing better but it will be a long recovery.  I just thank God that he is still with me.
