Today is the day we kick off the Anna Maria Horner Charm-Along & Charm Dash Blog Hop! I know that’s a mouthful, but if you say it a few times, you will forget how tricky it is with all the excitement!
Since releasing my first pattern late last year, I’ve sold over 30 copies! Which may not seem like a lot, but for a first-timer, I am still pretty chuffed some of you have had enough faith in me to spend your hard-earned money! So if you haven’t already whipped up your own version of the Charm Dash – now is the time!
It’s also time to get out your AMH charm squares – whether you have received them through this latest #aussiecharmswap or just have some charm packs of AMH awaiting your attention in your stash. Put them to brilliant use, and make something beautiful! It can be anything your little heart desires – be it a quilt, cushion or bag, or anything else you can think of! If you want to double the fun, you can use them along with my Charm Dash pattern! You see, I’ve rounded up some fabulous bloggers, who are armed (and dangerous) with my pattern and their choice of charm squares, to make their own version of the Charm Dash! And just because they know sharing is caring, we are going to hop around to all of their blogs over the coming weeks, and see just how versatile the pattern is, and if there’s any sneaky tricks or tips they can share with you. Here is when and where you can find them all:

I’ve also rounded up some of my favourite Australian on-line stores who have generously offered some prizes for you all! As well as the delightful Alex from Aurifil and Anna Maria Horner herself….
Here’s the low-down…..
Just because I know you’re going to ask me – The Charm Dash pattern can be made with ANY designer charms – including the AMH from #aussiecharmswap – to be eligible for the giveaway prizes, but those using their AMH charms can make any old quilt design they like (including my Charm Dash Pattern!), and the prize from Anna Maria will be awarded to one of those particular participants only! AND those using my Charm Dash Quilt Pattern will be eligible for the Aurifil prize pack! Make sense? I hope so!
The final post and Linky will be open to entrants on Thursday the 9th of April for ONE week, and winners will be chosen and announced here on the blog on Thursday the 16th of April.
So – Are you going to play along? I hope so! Here’s a pretty blog button you can pop up if you’d like!
