    Fun blog!

  2. Paula Hadley — March 10, 2007 @ 8:48 am

    I am loving this blog, the ideas, the colors, the profiles, the e-mails etc.!!!

  3. Karen Hingson — March 10, 2007 @ 1:25 pm

    What a terrific idea! I signed up after the recommendation from Tink! Such creativity…and creative fabric for inspiration!

  4. Cecile — March 11, 2007 @ 11:32 am

    This is a great “creativity break.” Each time I find a link, I click and discover more reasons to pull out the fabric and turn on the sewing machine. Thanks, Joan, for all your work in putting this blog hop together.

    Having fun with this blog – way to go Mary Lou! You’re a terrific designer with lots of great ideas, and the very best piecer I’ve ever had the pleasure to quilt for! Keep it up!!

  6. Tammy — March 13, 2007 @ 12:49 pm

    This is great inspiration! And fun to see all the different ways that the same group of fabrics can be used.

    If anyone would like to post their completed project, would be a great place to do it. I’d start a new section just for the Day Z Dozen quilts.

    This has been great. I love LakeHouse Fabric. Unfortunately for me, I have only one place (one hour away) locally to get a few of them but now I will have so many online sources!!

  8. Cecile — March 17, 2007 @ 10:14 am

    Thank you Joan for creating and hosting this innovative blog hop, and more thanks to Holly for providing the wonderful fabric to inspire the DayZ Dozen designers. I will miss signing on each morning!

  9. Jorja Mathers — March 17, 2007 @ 11:08 am

    Thanks so much for the wonderful projects. I loved seeing all the creativity – never imagine so many different ways that this beautiful fabric could be used!
    Thanks and please do it again!

  10. Vicki Chambers — March 17, 2007 @ 11:48 am

    This was such a fun way to start each of my mornings. I would find your email and look at the new design. Each one was so inspriational. I have started to collect as many of these fabrics as I can find. Thank you so much.

  11. Gina Halladay — March 19, 2007 @ 1:24 am

    Great fun. You girls did wonderful job pulling together some fantastic talents for this blog hop. Clever and Creative and Inspiring. What’s next?

  12. Mary Barthold — March 26, 2007 @ 2:39 pm

    I’d like to post a small complaint: I loved the blog hop & the projects, but the pattern for “Ring Around the Flowers” is nowhere to be found. Lakehouse said their site would be up by the end of the hop, but it’s not.
    I will figure out the pattern, but I would prefer to buy it!! Very frustrating!
    I, too, LOVE the “DayZ” line & have already bought quite a bit of the first line; I will buy more to make the above quilt. The hop is a great idea, but it’s frustrating that the patterns are hard to find, if not impossible.

    Hi Mary,
    Check with Deb of the Stitchin’ Heaven quilt shop in Texas. Their website lists kits for sale, but if you just want the pattern, let them know.
