Great musical note pattern! What a great giveaway too! Happy Birthday Month Jennifer!
Thanks! It’s going to be a super-fun month!
Love the music note! So cute!
It’s a great start to our hop!
Thanks so much for the great pattern, love the music note!
She did a great job, didn’t she?!
What a party!!!!! Great block and Happy Birthday Jennifer
It’s a great start to what is going to be a FUN month! And thank you…this blog hop is the best gift. 🙂
It’s a sixteenth note – if I remember right…? How fun, I never thought of music – I was thinking plants when I tried to make a pattern for this event. I learned a valuable lesson… it ain’t easy to design paper pieced patterns. Good job, Soma. I love it. Thank you for the free pattern. It’ll be a nice interlude. (Get it?)
There’s some awesome variety coming this month…just you wait! Music for our party is just the start. 😀
P.S. Happy Birthday – some day this month! If your birthday were today I bet you’d have gotten alot of gag gifts over the years. Anyway, 25 isn’t that bad a milestone.
April 28…and I’ll post my block that day, too! 🙂 It’s going to be a fun month!
Happy Birthday month!! I think I might just try to play along!!
Thank you…I hope you do!
I love the prizes! I’ll have to get to work and sew it up!
Thanks, can’t wait to see your block!
Thank you everyone for your kind words. Thank you Jennifer for setting it up, what a way to celebrate your birthday! So glad to be part of it. I hope everyone enjoys making it as much as I did.
So far so good, thanks again, Soma!
Thanks….this a great way to start a blog hop….
I thought so, too!
I know I am going to sound stupid but does anyone know about a tutorial to do the paper piecing? I am new to it and wanted to learn. I printed the musical note but kind of don’t know what to do next. I know I sew on the paper?
Absolutely, and it does not sound stupid at all! I have a whole page about paper piecing right here on Sewhooked. You can get to both written and video tutorials, both mine and some of my favorites that are on other websites. Let me know how it goes!
What a great note to start the month with.
I have never paper pieced but love the look and ready for the challenge to learn something new!! Should be fun and I LOVE music so what a great way to start! So glad you’re letting us celebrate your birthday month with you!
Paper piecing is my favorite technique and I couldn’t think of anything more fun than sharing the talent of so many great designers for my birthday month! 🙂
This is so exciting!!
I think so, too! 🙂
Good start to this Garden Party! Fun!
Agreed…it’s going to be a fun month of patterns!
I love MUSIC…that is a clever way to add music into your quilting…thanks for sharing.
Each designer interpreted “Garden Party” in his or her own way…and some great things came from it!
Do we have to be on a ‘Flicker’ to get into the drawings?
Yes, the weekly winner will be chosen from the flickr group. Thanks for asking!
Happy Birthday, Jen. Thanks for letting us celebrate your birthday month too! Paper piecing rocks!
My pleasure…the more, the merrier!
Music! Love it!
And a very Happy Birthday Month!
Thank You So Much For This PP “Garden Party” Blog Hop!! This is
going to be a lot of Fun and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Happy Birthday!! Jennifer….
My pleasure! I couldn’t think of anything better for my birthday month than sharing a load of new paper pieced patterns from so many different talented designers!
Thanks for the giveaway! Take care, Leslie
