Quilt Qwazy Queens 2020 and The Funny Things…

2020 QQQ buttonOh 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…

September 2013

stbs lavalamp frontOne 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.

April 2014

Super Powers Wallhanging 2Not 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.

March 2015

We Support You Blog HopWhat was to be originally a bookmark turned into a Bookbag instead.
This is from the “We Support You” blog hop also hosted by Madame Samm

March 2017

QQQ 2017One 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.

Thank you for visiting today, please take the pattern below as a gift for visiting today.

  1. Thanks, Marian, for sharing those projects again. Isn’t it just the ‘funnest’ to laugh at our old projects again? I have always loved the We Support You book bag design. Hope you’re having a good day and staying healthy.

  2. Thank you for the smiles, Marian. I really enjoyed the Stella design! Awesome!! And, thanks for sharing the adorable bunny with us! Love it!

  3. I participated in the bra blog hop too. I don’t remember where it is now. I’ll have to look for it. Thank you.

  4. Oh, I do miss Madam Samm. Her hops and her support did so much for my quilting and the many friend ships I have to day. Love your memories, so many of them I share. I actually pulled my picture for the We Support You Hop and then changed my mind. I smiled and will continue to smile with all of the memories that are reawakened.

  5. I enjoyed reading the history of your participation in hops. Your early ones make me feel better about my own clumsy efforts along with the hope that mine will get better with time. And and thank you for another sweet pattern.

    1. That seam ripper looks deadly … 🤣…strange that another’s struggles can be funny. Especially when yesterday I spent more time with my seam ripper than I did with the sewing machine. I needed that!
      Thanks for the giggle and the bunny, take care.

  6. This was so much fun taking a stroll down Memory Lane. Madame Samm is how I got started doing blog hops. Loved seeing all your projects. I think I liked your Lava lamp the best because of its theme. Stella was hilarious! Thank you for the free bunny pattern and all the giggles!

  9. It’s kind of fun to look through our past projects. The good the bad…all we can do is laugh was remember they are what got us where we are today. For some of mine…if I don’t laugh I would cry! LOL!!! Thanks for entrusting me with this hop. The bunny you shared is adorable. I think I have a new Easter project now!

  10. thank you for this adorable bunny. i love your projects. they all brought a smile and a giggle to me today.
