  1. Teresa Stees says:

    There’s just not enough time in one day… Love it

  2. Mary Arline Smith says:

    Time on the Blog Tour? I lost track on which date and time to post. I have spent 6-8 hours every day this week including today…..and still have to go back and check “if I won!” but I have enjoyed every minute of it. Had to stop last night when unexpected “thunder storm with real lightning” caught my attention and shut down. (Glad I did as the microwave clock had to be re-set this morning…but the stove clock
    was okay) Thank you for such a great blog tour!!!

  3. Lee says:

    This was a busy week for me – so realy like 15 min each day max:) Except for today Sat. when I had more time! I love visiting all the blogs!

  4. Denise :) says:

    Hmmm…probably a little better than an hour a day or so . . . not nearly as much time as I’d like to spend, perusing all the wonderful participating blogs, though!!! :)

  5. Lori Smanski says:

    wow, I have come in daily and it feels like hours this week. But it has been so much fun and so inspiring. Thank you to all of you who contributed to a fun week.

  6. Regina says:

    About 2 hours total – it’s been harder with this one as the weather is so nice I’ve been in my garden…

  7. Teresa Puterbaugh says:

    I’m always up for a good read! This has been so much fun! The blocks have been wonderful!

  8. Sandhya Karandikar says:

    I love the Fizzy Pop block. Waiting eagerly to try it.

  9. Carol Lagestee says:

    Do I really have to share? Too many but I learn so much. Love them.

  10. cindy tarrell says:

    daily visits whenever I have a free minute

  11. ANGELIA BARGER says:

    between 2 and 3 hours a day. checking out the different blogs and the linked online stores that offer the designers patterns and fabrics / notions they mentioned in blogs

  12. Elaine M. says:

    I would hate to have to admit how many hours I’ve really spent touring the blogs…and I’m just beginning. I’ve already found so many great sites to revisit!!

  13. Cindi C says:

    I’ve spent a couple of hours on the days that I have been able to, missed Thursday due to ER visit with husband.. everything is ok and now I have to catch up.

  14. Shawn J says:

    Oh gosh, I don’t know how much time really but from what my husband says “too much” LOL Oh well, I like it. Thanks for the chance.

  15. Cynthia H says:

    I have spent about 20 minutes so far. It is wonderful. But I need to get back to quilting. I wish I could do both at the same time. Quilt and surf the blogs, that would be awesome!

  16. apple blossom says:

    this tour is awesome thanks

  17. Martha J. says:

    Estimated time spent on the block tour – about two hours. Work has been in the way. Wish there was more time.

  18. Carol Scott says:

    I have spent 1 hour 15 min in the morning each day and 35 minutes in the evening twice a week when everything is quiet.

  19. Leanne says:

    thanks for another fab giveaway – I’ve been spending 1 1/2 to 2 hours each day absolutely loving checking out the featured blocks and blogs – thanks for the introduction to so many talented quilters :)

  20. Suzanne Gagnon says:

    I haven’t been keeping track, but I have been adding the blogs to my favorites so I can go back to them on a rainy day…the ones I have seen so far are interesting and have great ideas.

  21. Diane says:

    Well after having nice weather last weekend for a bus shop hop then receiving about 4″ of snow between Thursday and Friday. Somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature what season it is. Tomorrow is my birthday so I hope I win something so I will be checking out the blogs.

  22. Sandy Parmegiani says:

    I spend at least three hours daily on facebook, quilting blogs and shopping for quilt fabric. Its an addiction that I just can’t kick.

  23. Sandy W. says:

    I try to limit my time to between 1 and 1.5 hours per day, but find I get interested in someone’s blog and wind up connecting hither, thither and yon. So after only three days, I am spending way more time than I intended. Just can’t help myself!! Everything is so tempting.

  24. Barb in MI says:

    I just LOVE the penguin block! So far I spent probably just about 30 min – I am just getting started… Thanks!

  25. Carla G says:

    I’ve spent a couple hours looking at all the fabulous blocks & awesome blogs. Some of the blogs I regularly follow, some I’ve never been to… Thanks for another fabulous blog hop. :)

  26. LizA. says:

    I’m sad to say I haven’t had a chance to spend any time on the blog tour as I’ve been too busy unpacking from our recent move. I hope to catch up on it next week. Took a quick break t look at Facebook nice it wouldn’t come up this morning and I’m feeling guilty typing this instead if unpacking more boxes.

  27. Ann Flower says:

    I had been getting quilty pleasures on e-mail but think my spam blocker has been catching them but I found them again on facebook.

  28. Leslie says:

    I just started looking at the blogs, so not much time spent but I did bookmark many of them to return later! :)

  29. Michele says:

    Too much time!

    Maybe 45 min a day

  30. This was so much fun to do the tour and it took me around 36 hrs. so far. I just keep looking at different blogs and read all them, time well spent in my option. Would like to thank every one for their hard work on this.

  31. Jeanne says:

    I spent about an 1-1/2 hours on the blog tour.

  32. arlette says:

    I’m thrilled with your blog tour, I know I spend so much time visiting blogs and so on, I have about 30 hours now, and I always come back :)

  33. Jill Ellis says:

    My gosh, as I was scrolling through, I saw some wonderful blocks!

  34. Jeanne Gwin says:

    I don’t know I will have to let you know, just getting started pretty much. :)

  35. Sharon Green says:

    Everyday gets better and better!!!

  36. Kristi says:

    Blog has been great!

  37. Fran M says:

    Oh my, I would say somewhere around 6 hours at least. This was soooooo much fun. I think hubby will be glad it’s over, he will get fed again!! Thanks for such a great time!!

  38. linda feltner says:

    Their all so pretty . I am just getting into quilting and I love it. I am so surprised at my self because I am not a sewer and hated sewing for ever.

  39. Roxanne Sedor says:

    It’s been a crazy week so this is the first chance I’ve had to browse the tour.

  40. Carrie ORourke says:

    So far… more than an hour today. It’s been a delightful hour+.

  41. Karina Martin says:

    Can not wait until the 7 of May want to make all the blocks shown

  42. Doris B says:

    I really Like Bows & Arrows. When I get the #7 version I will mark all I want toake

  43. Mary P says:

    I love the blog, seeing a lot of interesting things. Thanks for the blog tour.

  44. pam green says:

    I’ve spent a couple hours each day, to my dismay. I’ll never get those UFO’s finished if I’m spending time on the internet finding new projects to add to my “must make it” list.

  45. Dana says:

    Spend almost 2 hours and only half way :) Thanks so much for this great giveaway!

  46. Sandy says:

    I think I have spent an hour or two on the blogs but it has probably been more. Time flies when you’re having fun!!! :-)

  47. Shirley says:

    Spending about half hour a day – could sit here all day, but need to pry myself away. Wonderful tour………..

  48. Tonya R says:

    My husband says that I am spending way too much time following all the blog tours!!! Oh well…I am enjoying myself. Love that cute penguin too!!!

  49. Michelle Myers says:

    About an hour each day. Hoping to try some of the designs once my sewing/quilting room is finished! :)

  50. Kim says:

    Not as much time as I would like. Can really lose track of time looking at everything! So many creative ideas!

  51. Joyce says:

    I have just spent less than a half hour today.

  52. Barb Johnson says:

    Let’s see – I spent my whole lunch hour on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,
    and about 1/2 hour each of those evenings hitting the ones I couldn’t get to at lunch time. Thursday was a travel day for me, so I didn’t do any of them on Thursday. Today, I did all the Friday ones,(1 1/2 hours) and am going back now and hoping to hit the Thursday ones. So far, about 6 hours, and about another hour and a half to go!

  53. LinH says:

    I am in the middle of a quilt of stars, but the idea of a web tour is so great! love it.

  54. This is pretty cool, but unfortunately, I too don’t have much time to be on this web tour! I’d rather be quilting!

  55. Kyra Rider says:

    Loving the blog but haven’t had nearly enough time to visit all the sponsor sites. I’ve only been able to spend about 20 min a day.

  56. Sue Riley says:

    I have enjoyed this activity so much. I am a relatively new quilter and have found the quilters nationwide to be a wonderful group of people. Thanks for this opportunity and a big THANKS to my friend Judy for letting me know about it. Her quilt is in this next issue. Way to go, Judy!

  57. carla says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! I’ve been looking at the posts that come through on my RSS reader, but now I’m trying to “catch up” and look at the ones I missed.

  58. Kathleen Hepner says:

    I heard about this tour just before I left for a vacation. It hadn’t yet started. I haven’t had e-mail access until late last night and today the tour ends. I intend, beginning today to explore each designer’s link or as many as I can get to this coming week. I’m excited for this opportunity to meet new designers.

  59. Sharon S in Colorado says:

    Sadly, I’m at work, so only for a few minutes at a time! BUT this time I sent the link home so I can open it up at night! :-)

  60. Sandy Call says:

    I can’t even begin to estimate the time spent following this blog hop – what a delight! Love visiting new blogs to see what others are doing. If I had to guess — at least 2-3 hours per day!! yikes I need to get in the sewing room!

  61. Rita Franke says:

    I’ve lost track of how much time I’ve spent but I promised myself I would get some actual sewing done today and not spend all day on the computer, like I did yesterday. Not off to a good start….

  62. Barbara Chronister says:

    I have probably spent 5 or 6 hours so far on blog hopping and pattern printing! Love reading and looking around on all the blogs!!

  63. Kathy says:

    I love reading (and getting inspired) by others. I could easily get lost in the reading but try to limit myself to 1-2 hrs a day. but there is always just one more great blog, fantastic idea, cool thing lurking out there.

  64. Karen says:

    Hopping around for hours, this has been so much fun!

  65. Carol Crisp says:

    I’ve been trying to go on the blog tour twice a day, and probably spend a total of three hours. Thanks for making this so much fun!

  66. It’s been a busy week, but every time I get on the computer, I get distracted from my original purpose and end up on the blog tour. Have probably spent 2 hours+ so far, but wish I could spend a lot longer.

  67. Connie Wood says:

    Enjoying the blogs and blocks. I do have trouble commenting on them sometimes. :-(

  68. Donna Magee says:

    I’ve probably spent an hour and a half each day. They have been very informative and fun hours!

  69. Brenda Wall says:

    So far at least 3 hours. I have checked out every blog and enjoyed them all. I will purchase the book whether I win one or not. You just never have enough block ideas.

  70. Julia says:

    at least 1 hour – some time each day. Beautiful inspiration :)

  71. Karen W. says:

    I’m guessing at least 3 hours, maybe more. I’m trying to comment on every post.

  72. DianeH says:

    Ahhhh, it’s Friday morning and I’m just getting started! Going to get to as many blogs as I can today. Thanks for the fun.

  73. Susan L. says:

    I think I’ve spent about 6-7 hours on it. Maybe even more! I kind of lose all track of time while looking around. ;-)

  74. Joanne says:

    These blocks just make me want to sew….

  75. Thanks for the great inspirations in the blocks and fabrics.

  76. pat smith says:

    I’ve only spent about 10 minutes so far, but have loved what I’ve seen!

  77. Lavonna ZWB says:

    Great tour. Thank you for the privilege!

  78. Valerie A. Clark says:

    Such fun.

  79. Judy Forkner says:

    I’ve spent way too much time! My computer hard drive seems to be “giving up the ghost”, so I’m not able to leave comments on all the blogs–no way to enter my info. The ones that work like yours do are good for my “disabled” computer though! Thanks for the blog tour.

  80. Tania says:

    Far too much time…according to my husband that is! Thank goodness it’s the weekend, so I should be able to catch up on all those fabulous blogs you are listing.

  81. Julie B says:

    At least 5 hours visiting the blogs to enter. Great blocks and inspiration. I should be quilting right now! Thanks for the chance to win.

  82. Cathryn H says:

    Oh, wow! I’ve spent at least 4 hours just hitting the blog spots to get entered as many times as possible. Then there are the hours I’ve spent going back and doing more looking at the blogs. It’s addicting!


    I have been spending over an hour blog hopping every day at except tonight as I am falling asleep at the keyboard exhausted from running around ‘Town’ for hours today so will have to finish this list tomorrow (when I’m not quilting).

  84. Jamie says:

    I have easily spent a good 3-4 hours a day enjoying the blog post. It is great to see all the previews and then I start looking at past post and next thing I know half the day is gone. I really like the penguin block that you highlight in today’s post.

  85. Kristi says:

    So much fun and can’t wait for the next post!

  86. Jackie Roisler says:

    I’ve been unable to get to the computer for a week now, so I just began about an hour ago :)

  87. karen says:

    I’ve only spent a half hour but enjoyed every minute of it.

  88. Judy says:

    I spend about an hour each day looking at the blocks and commenting on the blogs. So far that is a total of about 3 hours. It is so much fun to see all the new blocks

  89. Joy says:

    A bazillion hours! I check out the blog post about their block, I check out their blog, I check out any tutorials or free patterns posted, I check out the blogs they follow…a bazillion hours later I check out the next designer…too much fun!
