    2. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting {} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!

  2. The blog hop has been great fun and I am loving your book. I have fabric selected for a Simple Christmas Star. The tutorial is wonderful. Thank you.

  3. I'm a follower. I discovered your wonderful blog through Jackie, Canton Village Quilt Works. Have a blessed day!

  4. Your quilts are gorgeous and the book looks great! I've really enjoyed the blog tour. Thanks!

  5. Loved looking at the quilts from your new book and would love to try several. Triangles look interesting and give lot of movement to a quilt. All those bias edges worry me!

  6. Thank you so much Barbara for the blog tour so we could learn more about you and your family as well. It must be wonderful to have an entire family that shares the same interests you have in quilting.
    All of the quilts shown during the blog tour from your book are just stunning. I really love the Pinwheel Spin Quilt. And I really love the Simple Christmas Star Quilt as well. Thank you for the tutorial to make one of our own. I'm hoping to attempt it but I have had a lot of interruptions to my normal routine with family that has had to move in with us so getting anything done has been a miracle at times. But, that isn't any sort of complaint for sure considering the biggest distraction taking me away from sewing/quilting/machine embroidery is my newest, almost 7 month old Granddaughter. She's just adorable and I'm thrilled to have that capability of holding her all day long when I want to.

    Anyway, the cover quilt is still my absolute favorite. That quilt is just gorgeous and uses my two favorite color combinations that I have loved forever; purple and blue.

    Thank you for the chance to win a copy of your book and also the ruler that I've had on my wish list for awhile now.

    Because the rules state one entry per person, I'm going to assume you want to know that I am also following your blog. Thank you for pointing out that it was possible to do so by scrolling all the way to the bottom as I had never found it before reading that, although I'd looked many times before. (I would LOVE to have the capability to follow your blog via email notification myself also if you would consider adding that as I find it easier)

  7. I learned of your blog from Donna of So Sew Crafty. I agree that your quilts are beautiful.

  8. You are so generous and a free pattern for the Christmas Star to boot!

  9. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of your new book and the rulers too. I have a copy of your first book so know that this one will be quite good.

  10. I'd love a chance to win this book. Beautiful quilts.

  11. I am finding the quilts in this book sew fascinating. I appreciate the chance to win the book and the ruler. Thank you. I signed up to follow you via email.

  12. Love all the sites I've seen on the tour. Your book looks awesome. The quilt on the cover is SO pretty!

  13. What a great giveaway. Thanks for a chance to win. Will become a follower. What beautiful quilts.

  14. I am already a follower.
    I really like that ruler. I'm thinking it would really give a creative boost.
    Thanks for doing the give away.

  15. Hi Barbara! I noticed that the first commenter was Deb G in Va....that's not me, but I've seen her comment on several quilting blogs. It's evidently yet another Deb G! LOL!

    But maybe this Deb G will be drawn to win your book! :) I've enjoyed all the blog hopping this week and enjoyed quilt class today. Thanks!

  16. I'd love to win your book, too! :) Your quilts are always so beautiful.

  17. I'm amazed at all the creative variations you come up with. I have your other book, and the instructions are so clear and easy -to-follow, and have used your piecing instructions for making other projects. This book looks like another real winner!

  20. Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.

    The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.

    One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!

    This sophisticated software automatically draws only the strongest trend lines and recognizes the most reliable chart patterns formed by trend lines...

    Chart patterns such as "Triangles, Flags and Wedges" are price formations that will provide you with consistent profits.

    Before the age of computing power, the professionals used to analyze every single chart to search for chart patterns. This kind of analysis was very time consuming, but it was worth it. Now it's time to use powerful dedicated computers that will do the job for you:

  37. I want to share with you my testimony of how I joined this great organization of new world order, Really I was so poor in my life was almost close to death, i tried many times to join but all was in vain where by i was facing fake people who were claiming to be agents . They ate my money without helping me out there. I lost hope totally. But because i was interested and focused on my dream, I continued trying there I meet another person who told me he will help me out still i didn't trust him at all because of the first pain i passed through,he still also asked me to send him money there i got scared but with time he sent me his membership id card,trust in him little and i accepted to send him money, but what amazed me is that immediately after sending him money for initiation items, i got initiated within 2hour onlines and i receive my $1,000,000 directly to my account there i trusted him more and he is the only agent i trust because he helped me seriously. So my friend if you want to join contact him through whatsapp + 2348180828544

    is a matter of choice and if you are lucky to see this testimony that means well for you. If you have been scammed before while trying to join the illuminati

    brotherhood worry no more. You must understand that it is free to join the Illuminati brotherhood but you have to be loyal and honest to your IGF so you

    will reach your dreams and potentials. The reason many are scammed while joining the Illuminati Brotherhood is lack of knowledge. I was scammed thrice

    before i successfully joined the Brotherhood, i understand what it means to be scammed thats the reason i created time to save interested new members

    within my range to join the ILUMMINATI BROTHERHOOD successfully. I am not here to sugar coat my words but believe it when i tell you that the

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I’m a single mum with kids to look after. My name is REBECCA MICHAELSON, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about DR BENJAMIN OWEN FINANCE of that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy. After that my loan application worth $278,000.00USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company Email
