You remember how I mentioned that Martingale had gotten together with Quiltmaker magazine to publish the first two issues of 100 Blocks in book form? Well right now over at Stitch This!, the Martingale blog, Quiltmaker editor-in-chief June Dudley has done a guest post talking about how the collaboration came about, and they’re teaming up for a fantastic giveaway.

Not only can you win a copy of the book, if you win you’ll get the first two 100 Blocks mugs too! I just happen to have four of these mugs and I treasure them :).

So go on over to Stitch This! and good luck!

Another item you might find of interest is the Checker Distributors blog, where Penny Haren put up a couple of posts with wonderful photos of designer booths at Kansas City. It’s another taste of Market.

In other news, I’m off to southern California this weekend to the Beach Cities Quilters Guild Show in Aliso Viejo. That’s in the famous O.C. don’t ya know, near Irvine. If you’re in that area, hope to see you there!

And, mark you calendars for our upcoming Scrap-Appliqué Playground blog Book-A-Round, June 7-16! I put the schedule up on the Book-A-Round page here on the blog. Each day we”ll see what the other quilting bloggers have been playing with in the Playground, and there will be prize-winning opportunities all along the way. It’s going to be a blast!

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

P.S. So glad you enjoyed Fabric by the Mile!

    I’m here by way of Carrie’s blog announcing the coming blog hop. I didn’t know you had a blog and am happy to be here. Hope your weekend with Beach Cities is fun. I am always happy to see you at our Seven Sisters Show here in San Luis Obispo. Can’t wait to do some scrap applique!
