Here is a button you can grab and put on your blog to make sure you don't miss a single post.
Peach Patch Quilts

I have also started a Flickr group to show off all the pretties you make.

     The first blogger is Carin from Margaret's Hope Chest. Carin is the nicest person you would ever want to meet and gives of herself endlessley to organize the making of charity quilts for those in need. I was able to meet her in person at the end of the summer sewing party that she sponsored. In conjunction with her volunteering to be the first blogger in this blog hop she is also collecting these blocks to make charity quilts. You can send them to her address found on her Blogger Block of the Month post or to my address at the bottom of this post. Make sure to dig in your stash and make a couple for her charity. It gives you that warm fuzzy feeling inside.
       The block she is sharing with us is called "Fun in the middle" This block involves some fussy cutting and should come together really quick. Although I am not a super fan of fussy cutting it did give me a reason to stash dive and I found some great prints I hadn't found a use for. This is a great block for an I spy quilt for the little one in your life.
        To kick off the blog hop and to help you get started on your blocks I am giving away TWO count them TWO prize packs to lucky winners. The prize pack includes 4 fat quarters in pastel colors to make some fun blocks as well as 10 4" fussy cut middles (including some psycho cats). To win become a follower and leave a comment below. Give away will be open until midnight on Friday Sept 21st. I am looking forward to seeing what you make. Enjoy the Hop!
