Make sure you visit Quilter's Gallery between August 26 and September 3 for the list of all the blogs with giveaways. Our theme for this blog hop is Back to School. School starts bright and early Monday morning, and at my house we have spent plenty of time going through the school supply list and making sure the backpack is loaded full of new pens, pencils, notebooks, and folders.
The notebooks were so fun this year I actually thought about purchasing a few for myself. Of course I used to just wait for that school supply list to arrive. I loved new pencils, crayons, art supplies, brand new notebooks and folders that by the end of the year would look like they had traveled 10,000 miles to and from school, which was never the case.
The new backpack or book bag as we called it back then was the highlight. One year my best friend and I got matching book bags that could be worn as a messenger bag or a backpack. We thought we were so cool, that is until we mixed them up on the bus and had to meet to exchange them. After that our names were on them so we didn't have to drag our moms out to retrieve the right one.
Now for the giveaways. I thought some rulers would be in keeping with the back to school theme. I find I use the 6-inch square on a daily basis when making my blocks. The two 1-inch rulers are great for squaring up edges of fabric, cutting squares in half, and they have 3/16 and 3/8 inch markings on them.
I do not think you can have rulers without fabric to think about cutting. This is a 31 fat quarter pack from Robin Pandolph's Hope Cove fabric line. There are three ways to enter to win...
