Blog Hops

Announcing a Blog Hop from Partners in Design!

As you know, the Partners in Design just completed a fantastic sewing-themed quilt along called Sew Let’s Quilt Along. Prior to that, we hosted a Christmas themed quilt along and a Fall themed quilt along.

Along the way, thousands have quilted along with us, and we are very grateful. To show our thanks, we’ve organized a special blog hop just for you!

Tell Me More!

We know just how hectic the holiday season can be, what with all the gift shopping and gift making. To help you out, we will be hosting a blog hop in November filled with free giftable patterns.

Each day during the hop, a Partner in Design will present a special tutorial for a gift you can make. Make it for yourself, or make it as a gift for someone special.

2019 Holiday Gifts to You Blog Hop Schedule

Knowing that November is the time for present shopping and giving back, we’ve timed our blog hop perfectly.

The hop begins Sunday, November 17th and runs through Monday, November 25th. Here’s the schedule for the blog hop. Be sure to visit each blog daily to get your free pattern!

What Do I Need to Do Now?

Nothing really besides marking your calendar. Let me tell you, you don’t want to miss this idea packed gift-themed blog hop!

Sunday, November 17th to Monday, November 25th

What Fabrics Will I Need?

Although the blog hop is gift themed, it won’t be all holiday stuff. Some of the gift patterns might be things you will want to make for yourself, while others will be things you might want to make for others.

So as far as a fabric pull, you might pull out your holiday fabrics…

Or fabrics in your favorite colors….

Or that special precut collection you’ve been dying to make something with…

Or the favorite colors of a special friend, so you’re ready to make them that perfect gift!

In Addition, Before the Blog Hop be Sure to…

  • If you’re on Facebook and you haven’t already, you should join our Partners in Design group. Share your fabric selections and your finished “gifts” in the group! We’d love to see. You can also follow me on Facebook at Inquiring Quilter and join my private Quilting with the Inquiring Quilter group to receive updates.

  • If you’re on Instagram, start using the hashtag #HolidayGiftstoYou to get your friends excited too! Use it when you post a photo of your fabric pull, then later when you finish a gift project. Let’s fill Instagram with #HolidayGiftstoYou photos! If you like, you can follow me on Instagram too, at Inquiring Quilter

  • Also, if you’re on Instagram, be sure to follow the #HolidayGiftstoYou hashtag too, so you’ll see everyone’s photos!
