The first week of May Quiltmaker Magazine orchestrated a blog tour introducing their publication 100 Blocks Volume 5. 
If you don't know about this terrific source of block designs I suggest you check them out.  Volume 5 (with the Orange Banner on the cover) was released to newsstands on May 8. 

So back to the blog tour...  As with volumes previously released, many of the designers of the blocks within this issue have their day during the blog tour to talk about their design and alternate ways you might use it in a project.  Each designer offers a chance to win your very own Volume 5 just for checking them out during the blog tour.  Many of these generous designers offer even more opportunities to win additional prizes.  There were about 12 designers to visit each of the five days.  On Friday, the last day of the blog tour I submitted my chance to win with Janelle Noack of Country Matters.  Janelle has a nice design in Volume 5 called Desert Dash.  There were 182 who hoped to be lucky, but I came out on top to win any pattern of my choice from Country Matters.  I chose Hopscotch which is a Block of the Month series of ten patterns.  I received my prize yesterday all the way from Australia.  I'm looking forward to making this begs to use my stash!

Thanks again Janelle.  I'll be sure to send you photos when my Hopscotch is finished.
