EQ Seasons May Be Over, But It Still Lives On….

EQ Seasons Row AlongI don’t know about you, but the last six weeks has really been an amazing gift.

To bring 19 bloggers together, and thousands of quilters visiting our sites enjoying the patterns and the learning experience with the Electric Quilt tutorials has been a wonderful and joyous delight.

I never dreamed that it would all come together so quickly, and then end just as quick. These weeks have just whizzed right by and before you know it, we’ll be in 2016.

I truly hope you have enjoyed this experience as much as I have, hopefully, you’ve found a few new blogs to follow, left some comments that the bloggers smiled over, and in the end browsed away knowing you had a fun time visiting with us.

During the last six weeks, these are just a few of the happenings that occurred at Seams To Be Sew and the 18 other blogs that came a rowing along with you.

A Pinterest Board was made to archive the featured blogs pages on.

  1. This was such a blast and I learned so much from all the designers. You really did an amazing job pulling everyone together and getting wonderful sponsors. Thank you so much!

  2. I am keen for a new row along, block of the month/week, etc. next year. Count me in.
    I loved all the rows this year, and still working on them, had to put them one side for a bit, to work on the Haunted Halloween blog hob, but now that I am finished with that, and finish up my Seasons rows.

  3. Great Job Done! to all the bloggers, sewers, quilters, and RAL creators….I think it was a huge effort by all and a huge success, the stats you posted were amazing. I really enjoyed the experience and I do hope ya’ll will consider repeating this again. A suggesting would be to make the rows shorter 36″ or 40″ wall hanging size, and possibly more rows? Just an thought

    1. I like the idea of doing something smaller and that’s something we’ll consider for next year. I’d also like to go to a larger height, working with limitations of 6-9 inches can be quite challenging also. I’m sew glad you enjoyed EQ Seasons.

  4. It was great to learn so much about the program, even though I don’t own it yet. I will definitely know where to go to find out things when I do. I downloaded a couple through print-friendly because they were so interesting. Thanks for everyone’s wonderful rows, and some interesting read for Mondays!

    1. Well I’ve been known to use “print” friendly also, because I like being able to just send it over to my kimble or laptop by the sewing machine. I tend to use those so I don’t have to print out patterns and I just view the pdf instead. I also use them for cutting strips and such also, because I like to save on the cost of ink for printing. I’m just cheap that way. 🙂

  5. I really enjoyed what I was able to see…I didn’t get to join in every week but I did learn more about how to use my EQ7 better….Thanks to all for getting together to do this…Maybe again next year? Let’s hope so!!!!

    1. me to Kathy, I definitely want to do it again. Everything is archived so you can always go back and have another look, if you use PInterest, pin the board so you have easy access to it. I to hope you can put the EQ7 lessons to good use. 🙂

  6. I enjoyed this blog hop so much and look forward to the upcoming Halloween hop. Thanks so much to you and your helpers for doing all the work to make these things possible!

    1. and I truly happy you joined us Lisa Marie, I’ll look for you during Halloween Haunts and I hope you have as good a time during the hop also. Cya Soon!!

  7. Marian, I really do enjoy these Blog Hops and appreciate all you did to get it started and keep it going. It is always fun to see what every one creates. Every one had such beautiful rows. i know that it is a lot of work on every one’s part. I am looking forward to the next one. Please keep it up. Thank you so much.
