Simply charmed blog hop

Today's the day. The secrets out.  Announcing the Simply Charmed Blog Hop. Isn't Valentines Day great.  A day focused on telling those we love just how much they mean to us.  Fabulous.  And what better way to show someone you care than to give them something special made by you just for them.



So that is why Melissa from Happy Quilting asked some of her amazing friends (and me) from blog land to join her in bringing you the Simply Charmed Blog Hop.  10 days of Valentine tutorials and giveaways kicking off on February 1st.  So here are the amazingly talanted ladies that will be joining me.

February 2 - Heather from http://www.quiltstory.blogspot.com/
February 3 - Melissa from http://melissaslilaclane.blogspot.com/
February 6 - Angela from http://cuttopieces.blogspot.com/
February 7 - Amy from http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/
February 8 - Natalia from http://www.piecenquilt.blogspot.com/
February 9 - Jessica from http://twinfibers.blogspot.com/
February 10 - Katie from http://www.swimbikequilt.com/
February 11 - Jane from http://quiltjane.blogspot.com/
February 13 - Corey from http://www.littlemissshabby.com/

February 14 - Happy Valentines Day and the Grand Prize Winner Announcement.

The Simply Charmed title came about because each of us created our project using 1 Charm Pack and  added yardage if necessary but only for backing, lining ect.  The bulk of each project is made using just the 1 Charm Pack of Always and Forever by Deb Strain.   And trust me,  you are going to be amazed with what you can create using a single charm pack!!!




And what fun would a Blog Hop be without Giveaways???

Thanks to the generosity of our amazing sponsors, there will be a giveaway along with each of the 10 tutorials.    So when the time comes, make sure to enter at each of the contributors tutorial post for your chance to win some major fabric cash.




Fat Quarter Shop has graciously sponsored the fabric used in making the tutorials.
They will also be sponsoring the Grand Prize of  a $200.00 Gift Certificate to 1 lucky reader.


Burgundy Buttons has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.


The Intrepid Thread has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.


The Green Fairy has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.

A huge thank you goes out to each of our sponsors!!!  They are a huge part of making this Blog Hop.  So pop on over to their shops (their icon's are links) and find the special Charm Pack or 2 for you.  (And whatever else might tickle your fancy :)  

And last but not least, we would love it if you joined the  Simply Charmed Blog Hop Flickr Group.  This will be a place to show us your amazing projects made using the Simply Charmed tutorials!!!  We can't wait to see your own personal take on these special gifts :) 

So are you ready to hop along with us?  Are you excited for February 1st? 
Well then grab a button and spread the word.
Let's see how far we can spread the homemade love this Valentines Day.
