A Bit of This, That, and Upcoming Events

Hello everyone! I'm emerging from an EQ8 design marathon to share some sneak peeks and info about upcoming events. There's a lot of great quilty stuff coming up that I don't want you to miss!

First up is the Salt and Sand Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. The fun starts Monday, March 22 and runs through Friday, March 26, which is my project reveal day.

No sneak peek on this one, cause I haven't made it yet - I'd better get moving, right? But I will say that the hop inspired me to design a really big quilt, full of different beach themed blocks. My plan is to show one of those blocks, though I can't wait to see what everyone else created!

After the Salt and Sand hop wraps up, it will finally be my turn to reveal my free Maine block, block #35, for the Around the Block USA Tour, plus an updated links list for blocks 31-35. 

(For blocks 1-30, see the Free US States blocks post.)

Here's another sneak peek, which should be pretty easy to guess what it is if you know anything about Maine.

The very next day, Monday, March 29, is the big showing and opening of the linky party at Quilting Gail's for the finished Stay at Home Round Robin quilts - I can't wait to see them all!

Wednesday, on Midweek Makers, I'll announce the winners of the quilt book giveaway from last week, plus a few results from the polls and surveys - thank you for taking the time to answer my questions!

And coming on April 6, there's another block from Quilt Block Mania, which I fell so in love with that I made one for myself. Teasing you with yet another sneak peek - can you guess what it is?

Also in April, Carla of Creatin' In the Sticks, is hosting an In the Kitchen Stitchin Blog Hop, which will be full of creations for the kitchen. I've got my fabric and idea - I just need to make it, which means no sneak peek here either!

See? I told you there's lots of great quilty stuff coming in the next few weeks - enjoy, and 

Happy Quilting!
