Thank you for joining us.
This month we're inviting you to meet all the quilters below,
that have set up a special page - just to meet you!
On every page you visit, you'll be able to enter to win the Great Grand Prize.
Limited to 1 entry per blog.
~Please bookmark this page to come back to throughout September~
You can find the complete prize details on the entry page.
Each blog will have their exclusive link for you to enter.
Let's Get Inspired and Meet Some Quilters!
When you find quilters that you like, make their day and follow their blog, leave a comment, Like their page on Facebook (or whichever social media that's your favourite) or if they have one, sign up for their newsletter and stay in touch!
Each quilter was asked for a picture of themselves or something else I could use instead.
I also gave them the impossible task of picking one favourite quilt for me to display.
I learnt first hand, how hard it was to pick the 'one'. :)

You can visit each quilter by clicking their name just below their pictures, which will take you to their special page.
Hi, I'm Benita Skinner
And I'm the one hosting this party!
I've been selling my original quilt patterns exclusively online, through my site Victoriana Quilt Designs, for 17 years now, and only in June did I start my blog!
That's when I got the idea, as a way to get to know other quilters who blog, to invite them to join in a big Online Quilters Meet & Greet.
You may think with a name like Victoriana Quilt Designs I'd be all old fashioned and nostalgic - and I do have those designs, too!
But Cubism is my current favourite quilt, as it's so easy to make - adjusts well to any size, and is a great way to feature a collection of fabrics.
You can begin to discover all the quilt patterns I have to offer at the tab above.
I also offer a Permanent Quilt Pattern Membership, Free Printables for Quilters,
Fabric Quilt Labels & 'sew' much more!
I'm now going to stop sharing about my site, as I have this big party to host,
and I invite you scroll down & visit all my Special Guest Quilters!
You can stay in touch with me here:
You'll find my 'Click to Enter for the Great Grand Prize'
button at the bottom of this post.
