It’s a Beautiful Day For Opposites Today…

stbs-Opposites_Attract

stbs-Opposites_AttractToday is my day on the Opposites Attract Blog Hop. I’ve really enjoyed seeing the various blogs participating and have really enjoyed all the projects the bloggers have come up with. Doing limited colors has always been difficult for me, I am so use to working with many many colors in my quilts that when it comes to limiting my color range, I just seem to get lost…

So when doing this blog hop, I really had to think about what I could do, and it went round and round in my mind, I’d get one idea, and try to implement it, and I would end up with more colors than I was to have.

I’d then move on to another idea, and same thing, I’d get bogged down again in many colors.

Welcome To Opposites Attract

stbs-Opposites_Attract

stbs-Opposites_AttractI have just woken up to realize my post has not posted on time. I apologize, I’ll make sure it’s online tomorrow on time. I’ll leave the free pattern of the day up a bit longer online tomorrow simply because my post is late today.

Opposites Attract is the idea of Darlene over at Quiltshop Gal. Her idea was to do a quilt where we would work with a limited amount of colors in the color wheel. I changed it up a bit and limited it to three colors, keeping it somewhat small, and making them attract by being opposite colors, with a twist.

Today’s Hoppers are:

June 01
Tweety Loves Quilting
Quilt In A Not-Shell
Life in the Scrapatch
My Quilty Musings
Kathy was suppose to be a guest poster today, but she was not able to participate.

Be sure to visit each day to join the two giveaways.

Fun New Happenings, Don’t Let Them Pass You By!!!

SeaBreeze

SeaBreezeSo little time, so many many things to do.. Do you just feel overwhelmed sometimes by having to keep up ? I know I do.. but the one thing I try to do each month is visit all the sites that do block of the months. Since I’m an applique and paper piecing person, I specifically follow those types of hops, but it’s not that I don’t follow normal pieced BOTMs, or embroidery hops, I’m just more likely to follow an applique and paper piecing botm. I love Blog Hops for the same reason, those bloggers are not necessarily doing BOTMs, but they are giving us great ideas on things we can do with our fabric that we may not have thought of before. This is why I offer them on my own site, I still participate in them and I enjoy seeing what other quilters are up to.

While I was out doing my monthly visits this month, I happened on some new ones to come along and I thought I’d pass them on to you. After I write this post I’ll also update my botm page to so you can find them their also.

stbs-Opposites_Attract

stbs-Opposites_Attractand here is the schedule for those of you planning your week.

It’s going to be a fun filled five days of bloggers showing off their projects. Being limited to just three fabrics is definitely a challenge. As I sat and thought myself of what I could make, their was only one thing I could think of to do… You’ll see that during this event. So be sure you stop in and check each blog out, I am very excited to see what everyone has come up with.

This hop has two great giveaways during it’s run.. Each day a $25.00 gift certificate from The Fat Quartershop will be given away, and DJ Inkers will be giving away a cd of their wonderful Kids All Year CD (If your an international winner, you will receive a download link)
