My Free Block: Star of Hope

Between Heaven and Texas Blog Hop

Welcome to my special day for the Between Heaven and Texas Blog Hop celebrating the release of Marie Bostwick’s latest book.

Between Heaven and Texas

I have been a huge fan of Marie’s Cobbled Court Quilt Series since the very beginning. Last year, I helped celebrate the release of her fifth book in that series, Ties that Bind, and was delighted when she asked me to organize another blog hop for her new book. Over the coming 10 days, I hope you will enjoy visiting the talented designers, entering their give-aways and making their star-themed quilt blocks.

Here’s the line-up:

Monday, April 29 – Marie Bostwick – Marie’s block is here: Mirror-Mirror Star
Tuesday, April 30 – Michele – Quilting Gallery
Wednesday, May 1 – Bonnie – Quiltville
Thursday, May 2 – Pat – Pat Sloan
Thursday, May 2 – Kim – Persimon Dreams
Friday, May 3 – Melissa – Happy Quilting
Saturday, May 4 – Jo – Jo’s Country Junction
Sunday, May 5 – Wendy – Ivory Spring
Monday, May 6 – Victoria – Bumble Beans Inc.
Tuesday, May 7 – Vicki – Quilting Lodge Blog
Wednesday, May 8 – Melissa/Jake – Generation Q Magazine
Thursday, May 9 – Jennifer – Sew Hooked
Friday, May 10 – Jackie – Canton Village Quilt Works

Also, I do hope you’ll also make an extra block or two to send to Jennifer of Sew Hooked, as she’ll be putting together the blocks into quilts for The Linus Connection. More info here on this charity initiative.

We have a Flickr group set up for you to share your completed blocks and you can follow along on Facebook too.

Like all of Marie’s books, Between Heaven and Texas succeeded in sucking me right into it. I’d been rearranging furniture and doing Spring cleaning on the weekend, when I went to take a 15 minute break. Four hours later, the book was complete and the house cleaning was not. Of course, the book left me wanting more, and I’ll be eagerly waiting the next addition to this new series.

I have a copy of Marie’s book to give away to one of my blog visitors in North America. If you’d like a chance to win, leave a comment below answering What’s the last book you read or audio book you listened to? I’ll randomly pick a winner on Sunday, May 5th.
