Bowls With Borders--Last Day

This is the last day of the Bowls With Borders Blog Hop,
which is sad, but it's been a marvelous ride!
I've loved all the ideas, the tutorials, the giveaways,
the newly found blogs, and the beauty of all
the ways these bowls were created.

There are more bowls to see today
(the list is below) but I have a few
Thank You's
I really must share
(This is me presenting the thank you awards.
Really, it is me.......sort of, my dreams.)

Thank you, Madame Samm,
Queen of Everything,
for your encouragement (aka cheerleading), your fun little graphics,
and for making this blog hop happen. Your bowl creations sparked a
whole new group of paper piecers, me included.
You constantly amaze me with your energy and talent.

Thank you, Regina Grewe
for the bowl pattern and all the translation help you gave me.
We've all loved this pattern!

Thank you, Google Translate for the unusual,
yet helpful, method of translating all those different
languages that popped into my email box.

Thank you to all of you who played along
with your bowls, and for the
hours you spent creating your bowl masterpieces
--you've been great!

AND....Thank you to all of you who came to visit the
Bowls With Borders Blog Hop just to look, leave comments,
enter giveaways, and/or cheer us all on.
That's what these hops are all about.

Here's the last of the bowl hoppers

August 28th
Don't forget to hop over to Sew We Quilt to visit Madame Samm and see her top picks of the day.

All the blocks will be posted on
Madame Samm's Pinterest page, too.
