Day 5 of the Blog Hop Give-Aways.  I have some more blogs to visit.  I wish I had not been so busy lately, but there are still a few days to blog hop.

I sent my photo in for the Quilters' Show &Tell for this coming week.  
Check the Quilters' Show & Tell on Friday to vote and maybe there will be a give away for visitors.

I have a brief tip today. Publish your quilts in a photo book you design!

I take digital photos of my quilts.  I have a Shutterfly account where I upload my quilt photos.  I begin a photo book on that website and save it. I add more quilt photos each week or month.  I scanned the photo prints of my older quilts (before digital photography)and added to my books in progress.  I add text to the book.

When I am satisfied with the book, I order it. emails offers a few times a month and I wait for one that suits my book plan.  Sometimes it is a percentage off a book, or free photo prints. 

I incorporated some of my quilt photos into our Christmas cards this last year.  With the offer I received, they cost less than cards in a store and were much more personal. 

There are many photo websites that can meet the needs of quilters. Find one (or two for that matter) and get published!

My give-away:  Leave a comment telling about a quilting or sewing tip or tool you have discovered.  Share it with us.  On March 15, one random comment will be chosen and that lucky winner will receive 2 of my patterns via email--so make sure you leave an email address so I can send the patterns.  

  Here are photos of the projects I made and then developed into patterns: 

Love You wall hanging

Wavy Panel Banner

The banner is able to be modified into a table runner or placemats for a different use.You can use panels you have purchased, make your own, or use a fancy fabric for the top section.  The pattern is able to be modified for various size panels as well.  It is quite versatile. I am binding the table runner I made for Valentine's Day and plan to put a photo of the finished table runner on the blog this weekend.  

These patterns are available for purchase at under Patchwork Breeze. 

TIP 6 tomorrow, right here at Patchwork Breeze.  And happy sewing!
