Hope you’re paper piecing your hearts out with something to enter! You can include any project that you have made in 2012 – so long as it shows a way to use a paper piecing block and it’s made by you, it’s welcome!

There will be 6 prizes randomly awarded for linky party participants! As for the other prizes… keep an eye out, you just don’t know where they’re going to pop up! Smile (Promise I will keep you in the loop on where any giveaways are happening in this little blog hop!)
