That's right - you read correctly! It's parrrrrtttaaaaa time! With a purple moose. Not just any moose, but THE purple moose, Terri Sontra.
What's a party? Any time you get together with good friends and have a fun time, right?
So for me, most party nights look like this: lots of luscious fabrics, my Sizzix cutter and dies, and a fav pattern. C'mon - admit it. You have some party nights like this, right? Nothing wrong with that, my friend. Nothing at all. We are quilters after all.
And then sometimes, a party is when you get together with awesome folks like these - that's Bill Locke of Bill Locke Designs and the awesome Penni Domokis of Cabin in the Woods Quilters (and we're being photo bombed at Quilt Market - yikes!).
Or this gal. Tell me Ebony Love isn't ready for a party! Fun is this girl's middle name - and she's got the hat to prove it. I know - you all want one.
But sometimes a party comes in a box (not that kind of party - get your mind back on quilting - ahem....). And Terri has come up with the perfect party game for quilters - Quilter's Block Party! Here's the gist: divide into teams, draw a card, draw what's on the card. But wait - this is a quilter's game. So the cards have quilt blocks on them. Hmmm.....easy, right. Well.....noooooooo.....where's the fun in that? You can't draw the quilt block, silly. You have to draw something to make someone on your team SAY the name of the quilt block. Ahhhhh....it just got a little more interesting, right? It is! It's great for guilds, shops and quilting fanatics (raise your hands - I know you're out there. Yep, I thought so!).
Want your very own? Leave a comment about what quilt block you think would be the most challenging to draw (not the block, remember, but something to represent the block). I'll choose from all comments at the close of the blog hop on Sunday June 12th (ok, really I'll choose from all comments on my blog posted through 11:59pm on 6/12/16).
And head over to Terri's blog to enter for a chance to win this grand prize - what a fun prize pack! And don't forget to visit everyone in blog hop for more fun pics and prizes:
