College Quilt Blog Hop

It’s time for another fun blog hop here at Whims And Fancies!  I have always been very fond of education.  Until very recently I was back in college taking various courses.  Lately it has been very difficult for many students to continue education with cost going up everywhere.  So I thought it would be nice to do a blog hop in July to celebrate education with quilting.  This way you can play along in July by making the college days quilt blocks with plenty of time to finish the quilt, or even a few accessories and send them along with your college-bound family member.

While the last two blog hops here have been paper piecing only,  this time we are also going to have patterns with techniques other than paper piecing.  This way I am able to include more of my designer friends.  We will have twenty designers presenting 10-inch college-themed quilt patterns all throughout July, along with one bonus pattern.  Participants in the blog hop will also be eligible for giveaways.
