Blog Hop Invitation

I am planning on hosting a blog hop May-July. If you are interested in participating, please let me know which date(s) work best for you. And please pass this along to anyone else you think might be interested.

Why I'm hosting this blog hop:

My mother-in-law, Tina, was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2012. She’s been through radiation, chemo, and several surgeries since then. All of this has resulted in enormous amounts of medical bills, despite decent insurance. She’s such an amazing woman, smiling through all of the treatments and staying upbeat. She is a medical technician and gives back to her patients when her medical issues don’t keep her out of work. 

The Details:

I am planning on hosting a blog hop called “For Pinks Sakes” every two weeks on Saturday from May through July. I am asking you to make and post a pink block (more info below), a list of the other participants, and a link back to my blog hop. A link to the donations page ( would be amazing as well, although it's fine if you just want to link back to my blog.

The Pink Block:

It can be any design (original or not), in pinks, from low volume to high, any size over 4” square. If you could send me the block, I will incorporate it into a quilt that I plan to donate to the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion, in Grand Rapids, MI, where Tina has had all of her treatments.

Please let me know if you would be interested in helping out. And if you are, which Saturdays would work for you: May 10, May 24, June 7, June 21, July 5, or July 19. More info to follow as I determine the final roster.

Here's what I'm working on. You'll have to come back and see the finished block on May 10.


  1. I'll play, put me in early. (& I may need more hand holding than normal for the blog portion.)

  2. Hey!
    My post recruiting participants goes live tomorrow morning xoxox

  3. Near and dear to me and I would love to make a block for this wonderful effort.

  4. Sounds fun! Count me in for any Saturday, just let me know.

  5. I'd be pleased to host your blog hop in June. My mom had breast cancer.

  6. I would like to participate, can you put me down for May 24th? thanks

  7. I was invited by a friend of mine to do this blog hop and I am so happy to participate! I will tell everyone on my blog about it this coming Saturday, May 3, in my Pink Saturday post. I would like to participate on May 10, June 7, and July 19.

  8. I'd love to participate in this hop -- several women in my family have had breast cancer and this has always been a cause that is close to my heart. I can do just about any time for the hop as I have loads of pink fabrics on hand -- the 10th might be a stretch but I could defiantly do it.

  9. I have my block done. Please let me know where to send. My blog post will be done soon. ! Is there any blog post opening for. May 17th. The reason I ask is that is the Susan Koman Race for the Cure Day here and would be sew fitting!
