Coming in April -- Blog Hops!

I want to let all of you Lilypadquilters know about a blog hop that is coming in April! The Colonial Needle Company is sponsoring a hop the week of April 15 through 22, with lots of prizes and great products!

Please feel free to grab our button from the right hand sidebar, and help us spread the word about the hop . . . 

You may remember that I've mentioned Colonial Needle before -- among other great products, they offer the awesome "Pebbles" --- packages of needles that will close right up and not scratch you when you stretch your hand down into your bag of take-along stitching! Love 'em!

Here is the list of the blogs that will be participating:

Sunday, April 15 – Lilypadquilting (that's me!)
Monday, April 16 – SewCalGal
Tuesday, April 17 – Gene Black
Wednesday, April 18 – HillbillyHandiworks
Thursday, April 19 – SewBittersweet Designs
Friday, April 20 – It’s So Kiki
Saturday, April 21 – Love Affair with my Brother
Sunday, April 22 – Catpatches

I also want to alert you to a special event from April 2 - 6 . . . a Quilts of Valor blog hop.  It will be called the Go for a Star QOV hop, and these wonderful blogs will be the stops on your journey:

Tuesday, April 3 North Hills Quilter

Wednesday, April 4 Marjorie's Quilting Bee
(Marjorie will also be the spotlight blogger on the Accuquilt website)

Friday, April 6  Marjorie's Quilting Bee
Here's some information from Marjorie's blog, to let you know what is happening:

One of the Quilts of Valor coordinators, Tink Linhart, and Marjorie Busby have worked with Accuquilt and Aurifil and are having a QOV Challenge during April and May.  Our goal is to challenge as many quilters as possible to make a QOV, whether it be a set of blocks, a quilt top, or a completed quilt – and submit it by May 31 so that it can be given to an active duty service member or Veteran who has served in a war zone.
We are having a blog hop April 2 – 6 to kick off this challenge and will have some great prizes for giveaways. We’d like to inspire as many quilters as possible to join us. So mark your calendars for the blog hop and mark your calendars for time to make a quilt.
And there will be prizes for those who complete quilts for the Challenge including Aurifil thread, fabric, and the grand prize is an Accuquilt GO!™ Baby and five dies of the winner’s choice.
Sure hope that all of you will enjoy the upcoming hops!
