Can’t believe it’s May 2. I really enjoy visiting the different sites. Already have some new ideas. Can’t hardly wait for the new magazine. Hope I am a lucky duck. Would love a coffee mug! Happy quilting everyone!

  24. Linda Webster says:

    Well, we all know how easily it is to get “involved”. I would estimate that I have put in about 2-3 hours over all…it’s just that the blocks are terrific and I love visiting all the contributors and checking out their blogs. Many have done great jobs with their entries. Thanks for the chance at the giveaways!

  34. Sue Mohr says:

    This will be the lucky entry as all week good things have been happening to me!
    XOXOXO Subee

  36. sandy says:

    How much time spent? I’m sure not too much time but it sure flies when you’re having fun, right???

    I have spent 4 -6 hour on the blog tour. I love seeing the different blogs, very interesting and educational.

    I work full time, so haven’t been able to spend as much time hopping as I would like, but about 2 hours. I have a smart phone so can hop whenever I have a free second. Lovin’ it!

  44. Lovie Ball says:

    Couple of hours a day. I keep getting side tracked looking at previous postings on everybody’s blog, not just current post. Or see a featured block and think, “wonder how that would look – on point”

  45. Auntie Clark says:

    I am spending my sewing time on this blog, dreaming of what I could make with this issue of the magazine.

  46. Souix Bee says:

    I spend about an hour a day, unless I stumble upon someone very exciting then I go off to their site and then to their links and the next time I surface it’s time to make lunch.

  47. Charlotte says:

    Probably an hour a day can’t wait for the magazine to come out

  48. Mary Jo says:

    I was off work Tuesday and Wednesday so I spent a LOT of time on the blog both days! I love to read blogs and look around so I prowled around each blog to see what was on them! Getting ready to start surfing today so will be here for a while! Had to work today so I am getting a late start! This is truly my FAVORITE blog hop of them all! Meeting all these talented quilters is SEW much fun!!

  49. Sara Clark says:

    This hop is addicting–I set out to quickly check each blog, then discover I am spending more and more time exploring the creativity and talent of each quilter. I am probably spending a couple of hours a day just browsing–gotta love retirement! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  50. Charlotte says:

    I’ve spent about an hour on the blog. I love fizzy pop, but I think my favorite, in spite of the blocks at the links, is Bows and Arrows.

  51. Probably an hour or two every day. It’s so much fun to explore blogs I’ve never seen before!

  52. Mary says:

    Probably 2-3 hours, so far!

  53. Thus far, I’ve spent WAY too much time on the tour, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s so fun to discover new blocks and new blogs. I know I’ve spent a few hours each day. Now, I better drag myself away and load my newest quilt into my frame for hand quilting. It has been patient long enough!

  54. Stephanie A says:

    Probably a good few hours each day! Too many great sites to visit and follow now!

  55. Donna Desruisseaux says:

    I love the Fizz Pop & Bow & Arrow – great blocks for scrappy quilts!!!

    I would say at least and hour and half …. per day…

  62. Theresa Litz says:

    Maybe my internet service is slower than most, but I find myself taking 2 – 3 hours each day just sitting and visiting each featured blog. I’ve enjoyed myself, but my house has suffered for it. :)

    Probably about an hour a day!

  68. Karen says:

    each day about 30min to an hour depending on my time!

    somewhere around 2 hours each day. I got caught up on a few by clicking other links. whew who knew there was soooo much great information out there?? well I guess you did.

  73. E. Engman says:

    Over 4 days at c. 10 minutes a blog, plus extra time for some of them, I figure, oh, say 2 1/2 hours each day, that’s 10 or more hours in all–so far. I loved every minute.


  74. Heather Prescott says:

    Just found this series and spent about an hour looking around today. Will be back.

  75. Jane says:

    Cute block. Loving this series. Looking forward to the mag.

  76. Cher says:

    I don’t have internet at home so I only have my lunch hour to check out the blog. But I’ve spent every day at it and keeping a list of sites to revisit when I have time to relax and an internet spot. I’ve never been too excited about blogs, but the tide is turning! I can’t believe how much fun this is!

  77. PJB says:

    I’ve probably spent about 3 – 4 hours so far; I haven’t done much of today’s new list yet. I LOVE the Penguin block and would love to get the magazine and the rest of your package!

  78. Jane says:

    About an hour… Enjoying it!

  79. Alice M says:

    Blog hopping about 2 hours a day.

  84. Margaret Andrews says:

    I have spent way too much time going from blog to blog, reading, commenting, bookmarking, and then reading through the blog. This is only day four and I have spent at least 10 hours total wandering on the internet. Should be using this time sewing, but have to wait until the 7th so I can buy my magazine. Oh dear, we don’t drive across the island until Wednesday to get our mail and shop so I have to wait until the 8th! Bummer.

  85. Lorraine Skarzynski says:

    I wanna win,I wanna win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  86. Carmen says:

    I haven’t been able to visit all of the blogs so far (but I’m keeping the list so I can go back and be inspired!) Probably a couple of hours total

  87. Joanna says:

    I think I’ve spent about 8 to 10 hours this week so far. Sometimes I get caught up in a blog and spend too much time there.

  88. Becky S says:

    I’ve spent about four or five hours so far. I love seeing all of the blocks and finding new blogs to read! Thanks for the fun blog tour and the great giveaways!

    I have spent at least a hour a day receiving inspiration from these blogs – and can’t wait to spend more time on them later!

  90. Bonnie Thiem says:

    This is a lot of fun. I look forward to waking up, getting dressed, eating breakfast and going to my computer and logging into the 100 Blocks Blog Tour and seeing what is happening that day. Thanks.

  91. Karen says:

    I’m recovering from foot surgery so as I’ve been stuck at home with my foot propped up. Thus I’ve been spending hours each day reading so many wonderful blogs. I think I will go into withdrawal once I go back to work.

  92. Karyn Ashley-Smith says:

    I’ll say that so far, it’s easily been at least 2 hours a day (8 hours total)… maybe a few more, as I’ve gone back poking around on some sites. I love this tour as I always find a few new talented people to follow! Thank you!

  93. Lou says:

    I am thinking about an hour a day so far:)
    Lots of fun and inspiration!!!

  94. Vicki Hill says:

    It certainly has been fun so far. I don’t get much sewing done when I go hopping. I have spent a couple hours each day snooping around the designers blogs.

  95. Tami Chaulk says:

    I would guess that I’ve spent about 4 or 5 hours each day so far. I’d pull up someone’s blog and get side tracked looking at all of the different things on their blog. I’ve found several blogs that I will be following because of this blog hop. I’ve made a couple of new friends as well. One person actually grew up in my home town and after moving around for several years, ended up in the same city where I live now. I think we’re both looking for a guild too! Thanks for all the great blocks and gifts!

  96. Sssshhhhhh – at least 2 hours so far! Gotta go get some of my To Do items done for the day, but I can’t stop hopping!!

    I have spent around an hour a day. There is so much creativity and awesome ideas and thoughts displayed!

  98. Sandra Visser says:

    Don’t want to figure out how many hours I have spent on this blog hop. I try not to look at the time or I will try to rush. I like to take my time and look around some of the blogs.

  99. Ellen says:

    Oh gosh, I must be spending at least an hour a day blog hopping. There’s so many great blogs! I just want to keep reading :-)

  100. Jill Hicks says:

    I have spent at least 4 hours on the blog hop and found some great designers and websites.
