I’ll Be Gnome For Christmas … Day 11 of 12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun…

I’ve had such a fun time this year releasing a series of gnomes and still have more patterns to go, but for Christmas, I created 9 gnome patterns. At first, this was to be the only release for the gnomes themselves, but then some matching homes came out for the gnomes and I decided to add them last minute to the pattern. I made this decision last week, and my testers have been busy stitching ever since. Houses 2 and 4 are not quite ready yet so they haven’t been released today, but you can get a lovely idea from this post what they’ll all look like. I expect them to be released later this week. There is a special deal for the houses, so stay tuned….

Please note, tomorrow’s post will also be late in the day. I’m at a quilting class all day and will not have time to post prior to leaving in the morning.

Some of you are still having problems with my image links. While they themselves have not been an issue for me I have had problems in the last month with my media gallery and creating a “row” of images. Thus I turned to an actual WordPress plugin gallery to re-create the very effect that I was having trying to create a simple WordPress gallery. The odd thing is I have these all over my site, but it’s simple to see what part of the problem is simply having a look at this page on my blog.. Where they use to be a row of images (well many rows, but they at least looked like a row), they now look like disjointed rows and I’m still trying to figure out why. The effect happens no matter which browser I am using. However, the links still work just fine. So because the new plugin gallery may need to fully load first the only thing I can think of is those links won’t open until the gallery post is fully loaded. I try in the first place to keep my images small just for faster page loading time, but once in a while one or two will escape and be larger than they should be.

So, let’s get on with today’s pattern… Continue reading

Day 3 of Quilt Qwazy Queens here today…

Bunny Peeker

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2019As always, these events just seem to pass by so quickly. Its hard to believe that tomorrow will be the last day but so far and I know you might agree with me its’ been great seeing all the craziness happening in our little quilt world here on the net. I love the internet, how else would I ever get to see all the gorgeous quilts and projects that are created by others. Don’t get me wrong I also love quilt shows, but with those you are limited to those who show and don’t see the bigger picture. The internet on the other hand opened us all up to the possibilities of seeing what is happening everywhere. Thus, I love the internet.

Lets see what other crazy projects are being offered today….

Bumbleberry Stitches | Kathy’s Kwilts and More

Lets Get Crazy With Quilt Qwazy Queens

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2019

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2019Coming this Friday, March 15, is Quilt Qwazy Queens. I hold this event each year to honor Worldwide Quilting Day. It’s one of my favorite events of the year.

Each year I pick a different theme for this event which I hope will be fun for everyone. This year I asked bloggers to show us there craziest projects they ever made. It could include crazy fabric, or something that turned out just fun and wacky, or could use various materials to make a quilt like a project. I can’t wait to see what everyone shows off starting this coming Friday. I’ll give you a hint.. mine is not necessarily quilted, but has a quilted effect. I made it nearly 30 years ago when I was first learning to quilt and because it’s wearable, and yes, I do still wear it today I get many comments on it. It will be fun to see what you all think of my crazy and wacky project.

Today I am providing the schedule so you can plan your schedule.
