Insights into a Great Blog…

Have you ever gone to Sew Cal Gal’s Blog?  She is one incredible blogger…Frankly I don’t know how she does it!  She must spend every waking hour on the computer compiling various lists…like blog lists of give aways, making up lists of nominees to hand out Golden Quilters awards, she hosts contests like ‘guess the designer’,  she compiles lists like who owns an Accuquilt and then keeps track of tutorials…what Events are happening and on and on… she is even hosting a Christmas Quilt Show!!  Like I said, she is amazing!!

One of Sew Cal’s latest endeavor was to compile a massive list of sites that are giving away FREE PATTERN!   HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of quilt patterns…like these…from Marcus Fabrics…

…and Luna Notte from Moda…  LOVE THIS ONE!!

…Old Primrose Inn..ANOTHER MODA WINNER…!

These are just three examples…with this list we may never ever have to buy another pattern!  Hurry over to Insights From Sew Cal Gal’s blog and have a look around.  Remember what I said about how she must spent all day on the computer…well be prepared to do the same things…it’s a dirty job but someone’s got to do it!!  Thanks to Sew Cal my computer looks like it going to explode…it’s literally bulging at the seams…I have SEW many patterns stuffed in there! :o) 

Thank you SEW CAL GAL!!  You just keep making those lists and I’ll keep visiting!!  I may need more memory but…it’s the least I can do to support a fellow blogger!  ☺

HEY, the CHRISTMAS SEW-A-LONG is tomorrow!!  Come and join us…remember to sign up over at Quilt Times as she is doling out prezzies (as she calls them) to those who enter!  It’s a great way to get a jump on your Christmas Sewing!!

Did you know that Quilt Sue and Cathi (Shakerwood) are going to be hosting a Christmas Sew-A-Long all YEAR LONG?!!  Yup, I’m going to be stitching Santas  in July!…and you can too!! 

Have a Frisky Friday and Happy Quilting!~P

YOU too are an incredible blogger - you know that I believe that. I follow SewCalGal and you are right - she provides SO much information for us. Thanks to both of you for always making me smile.

Darlene spends so much time giving to others. I've followed her blog for a long time, and I always seem to learn something from her posts.

I agree about SewCalGal's blog. There is so much info on there.

Thanks for the shout out about tomorrow's Quiltalong, and for 2011.

I'm blushing so much, my head might explode! Thank you so much for the kind words and the comments. I really don't know what to say, but I'm truly touched. I do love your blog and so many other blogs..and I do enjoy "researching" and sharing insights.

I do hope those that are working on Christmas projects will show off your work in the Christmas Quilt Show. Great way to get into the holiday spirit! Great prizes too!.
