Today is the start of the hop which represents all of us with Worldwide Quilting Day right around the corner this Saturday…
Did you know that March is National Quilting Month?
I did not know this until just a few days ago… I was amazed because I know September is National Sewing Month and I had the impression that quilting was just included in that. So it was a surprise to me to find out this is also National Quilting Month.
Quilt Qwazy Queens is a 5-year-old hop as of this year, that I hosted for the first four years. This year my time was just not going to be there and my dear friend Joan at Moose Stash Quilting offered to host this hop for me. I was honored that she wanted to take the challenge on and if you’ve seen today’s starting blogs you already know what a great job she did of getting bloggers to participate. I can’t wait to see what else is coming from the bloggers over the next 5 days of this hop. My day is Friday so you’ll see my post then for the hop.
If you haven’t seen the schedule yet, I’ve posted it below, be sure to visit everyone, there are some wonderful projects on each of these blogs and all of them will make you laugh. If I laughed and I did… then I know you will too …
I have two new Block Of The Month‘s posted also for you. I also have Sunbonnet Sue news inside this post. …. and more… have a look inside my post to see what’s happening.
The schedule for Quilt Qwazy Queens 2020
Thursday, March 19
Friday, March 20
Monday, March 23
Tuesday, March 24
These both start in April and you’ll need to sign up with there newsletter to download the patterns.
They have also been added to my 2020 Block Of The Month Around the Web page.
Sue and Sam In Louisiana are almost done, maybe another 5 to 6 hours of work to finish the pattern, but I need to set it aside to finish 2 other projects by this weekend … sooooooooo if I don’t finish it this evening to post tomorrow it will be Saturday before I can post it.
and then… there was this terrible Virus spreading the world…
Devastating in its nature and hurting small businesses everywhere.
With quilters, perhaps you’ve found your favorite quilt shop is closing temporarily, or a quilt show you were planning to go to has now been canceled or postponed. I see it happening every day. Many of us are spending more time online or having fun with our kids and enjoying the time off.
In a Facebook group I hang out in Linda of Colorworx came up with an idea for many of the designers, and shops who are doing without business and that is to have a round-robin hop. Many of us have signed up and we are set to start on Saturday. Some of us will offer sales on our products, others may offer a free pattern, while others may do something else such as a giveaway. I don’t think there will be many projects featured and some are only visits to a Facebook page. The main idea here is to introduce you to them and them to you and perhaps whether now or later you will stop at there online shop when you need something you can’t find locally.
This event starts Saturday, March 21 and runs through Tuesday, March 31.
Come join the fun and virtually hop on over to some of my favorite friends in the quilting industry!!
