It was both wonderful and heartening to meet some regular readers over the weekend at the Beach Cities quilt show. It’s always a surprise and a delight when someone comes up and tells me that they enjoy the blog. It’s very validating and makes made me feel encouraged to keep on! Thank you so much.

Well, after months of delicious planning and scheming, our Scrap-Appliqué Playground blog Book-A-Round starts Thursday!

For 10 days we’ll zoom around cyberspace, visiting bloggers throughout the U.S. and Canada. If you’d like to see who we’ll be visiting, check the tour schedule on the Book-A-Round page.

Each quilting bloggers has something fun to share about the book, so you’ll get a really good look into the Playground. Plus, there will be a chance to win signed copies throughout the trip! Start here at All About Appliqué every day through June 16 and I’ll send you on your way.

See you Thursday!
Doin’ the new-book happy dance,

    OH yes sounds like such fun, I had looked through my Books and discovered that I had the BIG Blocks Book of patterns, I had forgotten I had it, it was given to me by my Mother-in-law. so now I pulled it out and joy over joy I saw things in this book I had no idea was there. Bless my Mother-in-laws heart she also had no idea what she was sending to me. This is going to become like a wealth of information. so yes would love the Book-around gee what more one could learn. take care Jeanne (jeannem.wallace@yahoo.com)
