Firstly I'd like to say a huge thank you to Vicki from 2 bags full for arranging this event. She must have put many hours into organizing this blog hop and I'm very grateful. Vicki has done wonderful things for all of the smaller bloggers out there. I had no GFC followers before this event, and only 5 followers on bloglovin. Now I have 32 GFC followers and 18 followers on bloglovin. Most of those new followers have joined as a result of Grow Your Blog, so thank you Vicki.
As for myself, I visited at least 50 new blogs during Grow Your Blog. I tended to restrict myself to those that sounded like they involved quilts or stitching. I discovered some real gems and have met a couple of people with very similar interests. It's a pity that they live in USA and Canada, and I live in New Zealand, and there's no real prospect of meeting up at quilt shows, but, at least we've got the internet, and don't have to send letters and photos in the post. I've gained a whole load more inspiration, and have many more ideas of things I'd like to make.
Thank you to everyone who visited my blog and left lovely comments. I hope you found some inspiration and might return again in the future.
I thought that the fat quarters looked a bit lonely by themselves, so I've added a New Zealand tea towel. I live in Wellington, the capital city, at the bottom of the North Island, where Peter Jackson made the Hobbit movies.

Heidi from Red Letter Quilts - congratulations Heidi. I'll send you an email to get your address, and then pop your prize in the post.
Thank you everyone - I'm looking forward to doing it all again next year!
