I <3 Riley Blake Gingham

It is almost September!

I love everything about fall.

Time for fall quilt shows and blog hops.

Have you seen the

"Around the World" Blog Hop?

My friend

Marcy @ Made By Me In Red

posted yesterday and has a sneak peek at a

Spider Web Quilt she made from my Tutorial!

I can't wait to see more!

Also, she  tagged me!

I am posting next Monday, September, 1st!

Thank you,  Marcy!

I love sharing and finding lovely new blogs to read.

I need one more "tag-ee" and I have sent a few emails to a few of my blog friends, many of whom have already been tagged and I feel at this point like I am bothering my friends with these emails, so I have decided to ask here:

Would YOU like to be tagged to post in the
Around the World Blog Hop
on September 8th?

If so, please comment below or send me an email.

I would love to share this blog hop with you!

The flying geese were made with assorted fat quarters.
Some of them, even though purchased from a local quilt shop,
were very thin fabrics that stretched and misshaped.
It is quite visible in the lower right corner.
I still love this quilt, though, and hang it every year in the fall.
It is not fall yet, so it is still tucked into my quilt closet.

Why am I posting this today?

According to the quiz on the

Have fun!
