Love sampler quilts? Me too!  Here's a great opportunity to visit - or meet - 10 different designers AND create a fun sampler quilt as well!  The theme of the hop: Moving forward ...separate but working together, inspired by life under quarantine!

Visit the designers' websites and blogs.  Each day, a different group of designers will present their themed 12" finished block, and you'll have the opportunity to download it to complete your very own sampler quilt.  But note - the block will only be free from the posting date through July 18th.  After that, the individual blocks will be available for purchase at $2.00 each.  Oh- and some designers may also offer layout options for you as well so be sure to check that out!

Here's the schedule for the hop:

July 13 Tamarinis

Want even more?  Visit a whole list of designers on July 15th, and pick up some fun free holiday projects and patterns.  I don't have the full list of links yet, but stop by my blog (link here) on July 15th to visit everyone one the list and get your Christmas creating started early!

Need more Christmas goodness?  I've got you covered!  Benartex will be hosting a Christmas in July Project Hop, featuring not only their amazingly adorable new holiday lines, but also fun new patterns from a host of different designers.  

I don't have the full line up for this hop yet either, but I will post on my social media channels once I do.  The hop begins July 19th and runs through July 31st.  I'll be bringing you a charming new holiday line AND a fun, easy new pattern on July 30th!
