Red, White & Blue Blog Hop

I am not able to join the party.  That being said, I figure since you took the time to stop by...how about a little giveaway?  Just leave me a comment & tell me if you could make a block (star blocks are my favorite)...what block would you make?  I will draw a winner on the 18th.

Hope y'all are enjoying the hop, for a full list of participants you can go here to Jane's blog.

ps...I won't be able to respond to your comment but I will make sure your name goes in the hat.

  1. I love star blocks too! I'd like to make a whole quilt of Ohio star blocks, since I live in Ohio. Maybe someday! Thanks for the giveaway! :0)

  2. How nice of you to have a giveaway without showing off a block! It's been fun seeing all the amazing talent out there.

  3. So sorry you can't make the party, but how sweet of you to host a give away. I love star blocks too. The Friendship star block with a white center for signatures makes a great quilt - I have this 'tagged' for my grandson's first year of school - teacher's gift.

  4. Hi Michelle. I hope all is well with you! I am collecting star blocks in BSA right now, so I would probably make a star block of my own to add to the collection. Thanks for the chance!

  5. I would say right now I am hooked on the string blocks. I have been using up tons of scraps that I have saved. Thanks for showing all the pictures of your t-shirt quilts. I also make t-shirt quilts and everyone loves them. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  13. You are a sweetie for having a giveaway! Yet another hop I am not participating in also, but I've loved seeing the blocks - I have several bookmarked. And then another hop caught my eye today - Lori Holt and a Granny Square hop! But, no, I will control myself and work on what I have on the table only! BUT, if I won this little pack, I would use it for Granny Squares. I made one the other day and really liked it ;)

  16. I'd have to say the log cabin block is my favorite, because there are so many different variations. Thanks for the giveaway.

  20. Sometimes life just interferes with our plans, doesn't it? I'm sorry you weren't able to make a block but you have lots of nice ones to see and choose from if you want to use some of them from the hop, and isn't that a good thing. :) I love star blocks but right now I'm kind of wanting to try some paper piecing so I would look for a pattern for that...maybe the New York Beauty. blessings, marlene

  21. I am currently really having fun making a bunch of scrappy star blocks. Sorry you couldn't join in making a block for the hop but glad I stopped by anyway. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think any kind of star would be a great idea. Especially when it's made into a little table topper for the patriotic holidays. I hope you are enjoying your summer. :-)

  23. I love wonky stars! They are so friendly and cheerful looking to me.

  24. My go-to block is a friendship star. It's easy and I like what it signifies. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm sorry you aren't able to post for this wonderful blog hop, and thank you for the opportunity to win this lovely charm pack. I also love star blocks, and would probably use it to make just that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would have made a modern block with a twist of whimsy. Plenty of indigo, cranberry and whites with random splashes of gold.

  27. Thanks for the giveaway! I like star blocks too - there is a RWB star block - can't think of the name or the blog at the moment - but when put together, made a small star at each intersection. Really pretty! I would love to make that :)

  29. You were missed but how very kind of you to have a giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  30. awww, no block?? boo hoo. but the giveaway makes up for it :-) a charm pack makes nice disappearing nine patch blocks. I've also made a quilt where I sewed a solid triangle to opposite corners of charm squares, then rotated every other block with sashing in between and it was a cute lap quilt

  31. Sorry you had to miss the R/W/B hop but it is very kind of you to have a give away. I'm a charm pack lover. I like star blocks too and I've always loved churn dash blocks. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm sure if I had the directions to make a star block I would be able to make it. I've never made one but I'm not really afraid to try any quilt block for the most part.......well maybe there are a few that I don't feel I'm ready to try yet. lol

    Sorry you can't join in, but very sweet you are still having a giveaway. Thank you

  52. Thank you for the rwb celebration in abstentia. If I were to make a block, would like to try the Florida star that was on one blog stop and is a Quilters' Cache block. It is very nice of you to have a surprise giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sorry you couldn't make the hop but I think your RW&B table topper qualifies for the theme. I think that whirligigs would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  54. my favorite is the star blocks, I used them alot in my charity quilts... The WOCS members cross stitch squares and that becomes the center of the stars...

    ReplyDelete
  55. too bad you couldn't join in - that half square triangle mini quilt in your previous post just fits the red, white, and blue hop :)

    ReplyDelete
