Oh yes, I’ve definitely been enjoying the projects I’ve seen so far and at the same time been truly inspired by what’s been shown. I am so happy that my dear friend Joan continued with the tradition of keeping this blog hop going this year and so a HUGE Thank you to Joan at Moose Stash Quilting for a wonderful job in organizing this hop this year. She is also doing a daily mugrug series which you can see on Instagram, and Facebook, as well as her blog, it is fun to see the different “official” days of the year.
When I join a hop I usually have an idea right away about what I want to do, but this one did perplex me a bit and then I got to thinking about all the blog hops I have previously done and there have been many over my last 7 years of blogging. I love them and I love seeing projects my fellow quilters are also doing.
So I thought I’ve done some pretty funny projects over those years, so thought I’d just do a flashback to those early years… It’s kind of like an “all stars” Amazing Race… LOL
So to get started…
One of my biggest failures with this being my first project hop with Madam Samm.
I remember this project well. My first attempt at binding by machine, then using a machine I didn’t normally use to sew on and after that, I wondered how Madam Samm even continued to let me join her hops.. I felt like such a blunderhead with this one.
This was from the Twistin To The 60’s blog hop.
Not necessarily my finest moment, but this was made in 2014 for Madam Samm’s Super Powers blog hop.
We had to create what our superpower was. It was a fun hop with many fun projects.
The pattern for machine embroidery is still available on my Craftsy shop today as a free design,
but my payhip shop includes the hand pattern, the machine embroidery pattern and the EQ project file all free still to this day.
I still love this cute little wallhanging, but if I were to make it again today, I’d leave the “sign” or the words “seams” off because to me the seams of the block speak for themselves.
One of my all-time favorites, from Quilt Qwazy Queens 2017
Stella and her sewing notions
She’s not looking real happy with that seam ripper in her hand…
we all know how that goes. 🙂
This pattern is available in my Payhip shop also,
There are probably others, but for me, these to me are my funniest of those I’ve made, I’m sure the future holds more.
If you’d like to see what else I’ve made over the years, you can have a look at my projects page.
I have said it before, I love bloghops, they are fun and really do get your creative juices flowing. Not just in my mind, but by the so very many other bloggers who’s projects that I’ve been inspired by. While I don’t see Madam Samm online any longer, I do miss her, if it wasn’t for her, I’d have never had the opportunity to meet so many of you via our online friendships and to those of you I’ve met personally also. I don’t know that I ever would have taken some initiative and started the row along or hosting more blog hops. So to her who really is a very creative lady I owe a debt of thanks.
