Sew Excited About the Villa Rosa Designs Fast & Fun Blog Hop January 19-26

Hello There Friends! 

 I'm getting really excited about participating in the first ever Villa Rosa Designs Blog Hop January 19-26!  That's next week already and I haven't even started composing my Hop post -- I'd better get busy with that, hadn't I?

 I wanted to tell you a little bit about the Blog Hop, though, before next week.  Everything starts on January 19th on the Villa Rosa blog,

Have you ever done a blog hop?  They are just the most fun events!  Blog Hops are a lot like quilt shop hops, but you hop from blog to blog on the Internet from the comfort of your own home instead of from shop to shop.  

As this is Villa Rosa's Blog Hop, all of the participating bloggers (me included) will share quilts they've made using Villa Rosa Designs Rose Card quilt patterns.  You can visit the VRD website and check out the over 500 patterns in their catalog HERE.

Oh!  Did I mention there are prizes????  Lots and lots of prizes!!!  And I'm not kidding, either.  Some of your favorite quilt companies are sponsoring this event -- Moda, Benartex, Hoffman, Timeless Treasures, Banyan Batiks, Electric Quilt, Annie's Publishing, Quilts of Valor Foundation, Creative Grids, and The Gypsy Quilter.

There are 18 bloggers all together for the hop -- 18 bloggers!  WOW! 

Here are all the bloggers for the Hop:

So, make sure you mark your calendar for this amazing Blog Hop and tell all your quilty friends so they can join in the fun too!  

I'm sew excited to be participating as a blogger and I can't wait until next week.....

Get ready!  Everything starts on January 19th!

I almost forgot to mention that my post is scheduled for Sunday, January 22nd.  See you then!

Until next time --

Tricia, AKA The Orphan Quilter




  1. I love learning about all the awesome bloggers in the quilt world!

  2. Popped over from Jo's blog to see what you created...did your post not go live when it was supposed to? Hope you aren't experiencing a power outage!!

  3. I like the Snow Goose Pattern especially as a table runner in blue and white. However, I might change it a bit by making the gesso in a “v” formation length wise. Yes, I am a follower. Thank you

  4. Hi Tricia. I am a blog follower/subscriber. I love the flying geese pattern but have yet to try it. I am thinking of making 4 blocks to make a square with a border for my coffee table top. Love your weekly blog

  5. Hi Tricia I forgot to leave my email address above.

  6. I like all five of the VRD patterns featured in this blog. Thank you for sharing your quilt piece. Linda

  7. I like the black and brights version of the runner. really cool.
