Sign up for Old Book blog hop?

Dust off a quilt book blog hop

I’ve had this idea for a blog hop in the new year and finally sat down and made a picture for it Winking smile

Who wants to join this blog hop???

I’m sure I’m not the only one who “collects” quilt books and maybe there’s one or two that you haven’t even touched? or only made one thing and then left the book alone?

They may not be as old at the picture but….. they are still collecting dust!

So my idea for the blog hop is to dust off one of the books and make something from the book!!

How you interpret that, is up to you? want to make a complete project in there, that’s great. want to make a block and turn it into potholders or something small, that’s fine too.

The hop will be from Feb 18-22.

yeah, I know it’s far away, but I’m already participating in two hops in January, so I figured I’d get this post out before our calendars fill up too much Smile

Comment or email me if you want to join

I need your email address and blog address.

and if there’s a day that you prefer or can’t do….

Come join the fun!!

I need to jump in on this Hop! The only book I have made anything from is Tula Pinks 100 Blocks.
I have been thinking about getting serious about using my books since I just moved all thousand or so upstairs to my sewing loft. (Just kidding, it's less than 1000!)
So, I'm in, it's on my calendar!!!
Thanks for the boot to get started!

If you still have openings I'm in. I know I have unopened boxes of books in my garage from my move several years ago. Should be interesting. My tastes have changed over this time will be fun going back a bit.
