... Bowls with Borders Blog Hop Day #3

Welcome!  I hope you're having a great time visiting all the blogs in the hop.  You are leaving comments on each, right ? ...*hint, hint*  It means so much to receive your comments and be cheered on.  Thanks for being here!  


Okay, I'll admit it.  This is the first time I've paper pieced, even though it's something I've been wanting to try for awhile now.  Now, I think I can understand the addiction for paper piecing! lol
 If you haven't tried paper piecing yet, this pattern is a great one to start with!


My Ghastlie babushka dolls had to make an appearance alongside, as they match so nicely with these bowls! By the way this is an enlargement of the original pattern.  I went for a block that would finish at 10.5"

Thanks to Regina for allowing use of her cute bowl pattern. How generous!
(Want her pattern? Click here for details).


 Now before you head on your way to see the rest of the bowls being shared today, I want to let you know that if you need the full blog hop schedule, you can find it at Carol's.


 Many thanks to Carol for being our lovely hostess, and to our inspiring head cheerleader, Madame Samm, for making this blog hop happen!

Okay, off you go to visit the talented ladies I'm sharing Day #3 with...
