As some of you probably know, I have organized a "little" blog hop the past two years. A few months after I started this blog, I timidly emailed some of my new online friends who were also new bloggers to see if they might be interested in a blog hop for new quilt bloggers. If I remember correctly, everyone I contacted responded with an enthusiastic "yes!" What I had originally thought would be a short hop with 10 or so bloggers grew into a 6 month blog hop with almost 100 stops. At some point, I realized that we had to cap the numbers and we had a final blog hop week for the Let's Get Acquainted New Blogger Blog Hop in October of 2012.
So, what does all of this have to do with the photos? Well, late last week, I received a package from my friend Em from Sewing by Moonlight. I couldn't imagine what she was sending me - and here is where the speechless part comes in - it was this quilt made by the bloggers from the 2013 Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop for New Bloggers!!! Wow!!!
So, to any of you 2013 blog hop people who are reading this post - Thank you for this beautiful quilt. I will treasure it always! What a fantastic and special way to remember the fun we had this year. I am so happy to have "met" each and everyone of you.
