Garden Party Blog Hop – Day 28: It’s My Birthday!

Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 28 of Sewhooked’s Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop!

Hey, ho, it’s my birthday!

This is a post full of PARTY and PRESENTS for both you and me, so make sure you read all the way to the end!

What to get the girl that has everything.

It’s been quite a birthday month for me, what with the amazing-ness of the Garden Party, being part of the Ties That Bind Blog Tour (giveaways and coupons, oh my!) and Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and the 100 Blocks Blog Tour both on the way!

TODAY, my original quilt The Project of Doom, is on display at the Pflugerville Area Quilt Show hosted by Hennig House Quilts! If you are in the Austin area, please stop by for this super fun outdoor, non-juried show!

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol 5 will be available for sale on May 8. Please support your local quilt shops and go pick up a copy! You can find me on pages 22 and 31!

If you will be in the Austin area on May 12, please stop by Honey Bee Quilt Store to see me! More information on that right here.

And now…what you came for…Garden Party!

My block, Perennial Pleasures, is a reminder to myself to take a few minutes to sit and do nothing, something a dear friend of mine has reminded me on occasion that it is OK to do! We’ve broken out the wine, the table is decorated and the sky is lovely and blue, how relaxing!

For those non-wine lovers out there, I’ve included alternate pattern pieces for a sweet butterfly.

I cannot thank you all enough for making this April one I will never, ever forget! Because of this, I have something to give back to you…

Each and every person that makes a block from my Garden Party pattern, Perennial Pleasures (wine or butterfly), and posts it to the Garden Party flickr group will be entered to win a copy of Electric Quilt 7, courtesy of The Electric Quilt Company.

Yes, you heard that right.

I’m giving away A FREE COPY Of EQ7, the design software that I myself use!

The winner of the drawing will be announced on Monday, May 7 and will be chosen via random drawing using random.org.
