Today is the 24th of July. In Utah it's a holiday - Pioneer Day - the day in 1847 when pioneers settled Utah and it was on it's way to becoming a state. It's easy to remember the date because there are "Days of 47" celebrations. It's a fun day for me to kick off the blog tour for my new book, Simply Charming Minis.
Now through the end of the month, we'll be giving away copies of the book. If you don't win or can't wait, ask for it at your local quilt shop or buy it online HERE.
The blogs to visit for today are:
ALSO -- for my quilt along this fall, I have decided to do a Mini Quilt Along!
The "It's a Mini Quilt Along" will start September 11 and run until April next year. We will be making one mini quilt every two weeks! Three of those two week time periods will have special prizes just for getting the tops quilted! We will make 12 mini quilts by the end of the quilt along. There will be guest posters as always, but they will show you their version of one of the quilts from the book. You will need to buy the book to participate or borrow it from a friend, so I am giving you plenty of heads up!
Hop, hOp, hoP!
