Bea’s EQ Appliqued Animals Blog Hop Comes To An End..

Bea - EQ Appliqued Animals - Spring 2013

It’s been an amazing week full of fun, learning and great times at each of the different sites for Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animals Blog Hop. For me, being a new blog site, I’ve learned not only about EQ itself, but taking care of my blog and how to do things I was not aware of prior to people coming to visit me. I wish to take a moment and thank each of you who visited, especially those of you who left comments, compliments and the wanting to learn. I hope you will take the time, or purchase EQ and realize that your dreams can come true in quilting.

The above image gallery is a beautiful reminder of the sites I’ve learned from this week and a wonderful opportunity for you to continue to visit.

Just some Ramblings…

My EQStitch arrived this past monday and I had to set it aside to work on my site. With the blog date approaching, I knew I needed to have the site up and running, and my blocks were already pretty much finished and ready to stitch out. I was hoping to use EQStitch as part of the block design, but after using it, I am not so sure I want to do that now. We’ll see, I still may do something as a small extra.

About Marian

Marian at WeddingIt’s very exciting to create any new website. I’ve built quite a few for other people in my time on the internet and I’ve enjoyed working on each one of them including my own websites.

It’s always fascinating to see them come together with the different colors and design of your site. Of course sometimes there are the frustrations when things don’t go the way you want them to as well.

Hello and Welcome, My name is Marian Pena, I’ve been sewing since 1974. I started learning in Home Economics while in the 9th grade. I just didn’t seem to understand all the little idiosyncrasies involved. One needs to learn how to stitch a seam, the importance of that seam, and why we stitch clothing at a normal 5/8 inch seam allowance, much like in quilting where that 1/4 inch seam allowance is the standard. I finally was lucky enough to happen on someone who wanted to teach a summer course when I was 15. She was my best friend’s sister, and her name was Ronnie. She was amazing and I have her to thank for my love of sewing still today.
