October is here and that means a new challenge!! Welcome to a New Blog Template Challenge at Kate Hadfield Designs!! Before we get to the new template, let's share the winner of the September Blog Template challenge. We loved looking through Kate's gallery here, at all of the fabulous patchwork template pages from September, and Rafflecopter chose Jan's fabulous "Building Hogwarts" page as the winner of the $15 gift card to Kate's Store. [Jan @Janisn please PM Kate here at the Lily Pad to claim your Gift Card!] Thank you to everyone who participated in the September challenge. It was so much fun to see how everyone used the patchwork template to make it their own! Now on to October!!! This month we have another a paper-pieced styled "Quilted" Template.
