My First Blog Hop and Give Away

I am happy to be part of the blog hop and give away that is happening thanks to The Quilting Galleries Blog Hop Party with Giveaways.  Just hit the button on the left, or go to  http://quiltinggallery.com/quilters-fun/quilters-blog-hop-party/ There is a long list of bloggers for you to check out, all with giveaways.
I am giving a Bali Pop and 2 of my patterns, Bali Bags and Little Bits.  These are very popular patterns, and you can get all 4 bags and the wallet set out of 1 Bali Pop.   Part of the fun is seperating the Bali Pop into 4 piles, each will become a bag.  There are 40 different fabrics in the Bali Pop, I find this makes for interesting bags.  Use the leftover pieces to make the wallet set.
This is my first blog hop, or give-away.  I am relatively new at blogging and am not all that great at it, but I feel I am learning more all the time.  I do enjoy reading other blogs, and I am learning alot from them.

If you leave a comment, and I would love you to become a follower, I will be drawing a random name at the end of the blog hop I will number them.  I will use random.org to pick a number for me.  Make sure that I can reach you, in case you win.  Good luck everyone, and I hope I make some new friends!
