    Keep track of the time while blog hopping? More time than I should, but I have to admit not quite enough to read every single one. (Blush.) The ones that I have read though have been good reads, some with good ideas to add to my “maybe someday in the future” notebook. Thanks!

  2. Nancy Sue says:

    Oh, my, what a loaded question….does that count all the trips to the coffeepot and secret stash of chocolate to enjoy while I’m drooling over the featured blogs and blocks? I’d say prob. an hour and a half each day. (During my 4 yr old’s nap). I’m going to have blog tour withdrawl come Monday naptime!

  3. Niki says:

    This was my first blog tour and I am very happy to have found your site. I will be a constant visitor.

  4. Judy Howard says:

    I just love these fabrics. The colors of fall make me feel warm and loved. I hope I win this collection!

  5. Sheryl W. says:

    So much beauty in one post! I love everything. I’d love to own that fabric.

  7. Carol says:

    about 30 minutes total

  8. Linda says:

  9. Cecilia says:

    I probably spent at least 3 hours so far this week. I had two quilting classes this week and wasn’t able to participate for 2 days but I will try to catch up tonight. Thanks for all of the great blocks and giveaways.

  10. Niki says:

    It took awhile to visit all the new-for-me blogs. Enjoyed the several hours of quilts pleasure.

  11. Lynne says:

    I have popped in to have a look in all my spare moments:-) All the blocks are just wonderful again. I have thoroghly enjoyed both the blogs and the inspirations behind the creating of all these wonderful blocks.
    Thanks so much for bringing this wonderful tour to us.

  12. Janet says:

    Thank you so much for another wonderful 100 block magzine blog tour. It’s so much fun to see the new blocks and here the hows and whys behind the designers inspiration for their block. It means so much more than just buying the magazine and paging through it at home. I spent probably 5-6 hours this week checking out the blogs and commenting. It always energizes me to get into my sewing space and get busy.

  13. Connie says:

    I probably spent about 4 hours and got to visit some blogs that were new to me, thanks so much for the giveaway and fun!

  14. Shannon says:

    Well about 3 to 4 hours. I go to each blocg. If I like what I see then I spend more time there. I have loved every minute of it!

  15. Debbie says:

    I know I spent about 45 minutes to an hour everyday one blog leads to another.. I probably bookmarked 95% of the blogs listed this was a blast. Thank you I was a winner already without winning the magazine. Of course I am still hoping I am a winner……

  16. KrisD says:

    I absolutely love the Little Laundry block! Just adorable! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the magazine. What inspiration!!! Maybe I’ll win a copy before I get one picked up. Thanks for the blog hop. It was so much fun seeing what the block designers came up with and how they came up with them.

  17. It has been an absolutely wild week. I’ve spent about two hours each day on the blog hop, but would love to have had more time to spend. Loved visiting each designer’s page and getting to know them. Again, thanks for a fabulous event! The 100 Blocks blog tour is one of my favorites! Have a great weekend!

  18. Charlotte Dudley says:

    A couple hours. Would like to spend more, but…

  19. Donna Russ says:

    Love the fall colors of the RJR fabrics, the rickrack closeline is adorable, I spent approx 10 hours or better on this hop thanks for it, have really enjoyed it….

  20. Kathy M. Boice says:

    About three and one half hours. Enjoyed every minute!!

  22. Carla G says:

    I probably spent a couple hours this week – but I also missed the start of the blog hop. I enjoyed visiting each blog and seeing all the wonderful blocks that were published in volume 4. Thanks for a chance to win this giveaway! :)

  23. Donna Joy says:

    Easily spent over an hour a day looking at the blogs. Couldn’t tear myself away from all the creative people. Gorgeous patterns, fabric and stories and tutorials. Can’t wait to see if I won a magazine, if not I’m out the door to buy one. Sure want to sew several of those blocks. Thanks for the giveaway.

  24. Jennyroo says:

    I probably spent at least three to four hours on it during the week. I wish that I could have spent more time on it but I was very busy this week. I enjoyed reading the blogs that I did get to.
