2018 Is Just Around The Corner, What Are You Up To For 2018?

Event-Blogging

2018Each year I try to post what’s happening around the web. I’m certainly not the only blogger who offers a yearly event, and I myself enjoy visiting all the different events that happen around the web each year. I know many of you visit my Block of the Month page during the year, it’s one of my most visited pages on this site each year and always becomes a new page during the year. I’ve never removed any of those previous pages, so it’s easy to go back to see previous events and visit among some of the blogs that feature amazing projects or wonderful blocks for us to make.

A New QAL… and a Please Resend..

Little Miss Bunny

Little Miss Bunny

Hey Ya’ll, How ya doing? Did you know that Little Bunny Quilts has started a new QAL?

Alison always has the cutest projects, this one is a mystery QAL, it started in March, and is posted once a month. It’s gonna be quick tho as it ends in July. She hasn’t posted block 2 yet, so their is time to still get started.

Next, ya’ll know I’ve been working on a new desktop recently, I am fairly sure I’ve lost some emails that came my way over the last few weeks. If I haven’t answered your email, please resend it. This would include any Flickr requests, if you didn’t get a coupon in your email, I didn’t see the email to send it. Please redo them, and I do apologize for the inconvenience I have caused. Sometimes those things just happen.

Ya’ll have a good day,

Marian

One New BOTM, One QAL, and One Continuing BOTM…

Sew Fresh Quilts Christmas Sweaters QAL

Lookie, Lookie, Lots of Fun Coming for Everyone.. Nancy Zieman is giving us a new BOTM this year, and it looks great.. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.

Janeen at Quilt Art is continuing her Bitty Block series. This is a fun paper piece BOTM, which occurs each month, and Janeen always does some really cool blocks. I have followed this one since she started it and am glad to see she’s going to continue it in 2016.

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts has come up with a fabulous new Quilt Along and it’s a great quilt. I love the idea of it, she has placed traditional blocks inside as the sweater decoration. This looks really fun and I will definitely be following it.

All three of these new fun events have been added to my BOTM page and my sidebar BOTM displays on the right side of this page.

Don’t miss these really cool BOTMs and Lorna’s very fun QAL, which btw, starts next monday.

Marian's Preview

Marian's PreviewWell, it’s finally time to wrap up this event, and move on to other things. It has been fun, creative, and overall, a great time. I’ve enjoyed every week of the rows offered by the featured bloggers. The Flickr group has been a blast seeing what ya’ll have done with the rows, and I will be looking forward to your finishes.

I do not have my quilt finished, I have my rows finished, but they are not even on the ends, and I have spent the weekend tearing them apart, coming up with ways to try and fix them.
