Quilt Qwazy Queens – March 21

Quilt Qwazy Queens

Quilt Qwazy Queens

Last friday we saw our first featured bloggers tell us their wonderful, and amazing stories of inspiration and tales of what continues to make them quilt today.

Today is a continuation of that celebration of International Quilting Day which was this past Saturday March 19th. Today, four more bloggers will tell us what inspires them, and keeps them going with their quilting experiences.

This blog hop isn’t about creating new projects, it’s all about celebrating International Quilting Day, which is traditionally on March 19, but it’s hard to see and visit 30 blogs all in a day, so, we are celebrating for the next week. Bloggers were asked to show us their love of quilting, by telling us their proudest achievements, or showing us their first projects, or their own inspirations for quilting. I’m going to really enjoy reading and learning more about what’s our featured bloggers over the next week. I hope you to will take the time to get to know these bloggers just a little bit more to.

Many sponsors have graciously given their products for the bloggers to offer during this blog hop, so I hope you will send them a thank you, whether it’s just saying thank you on their facebook page, or visiting their site, and sending a thank you thru their contact forms. They appreciate hearing that you appreciated what you won, and please remember, it’s not just the amount of money they give up that they could have received by selling it, most all pay for shipping it also, the cost of workers, all go into the expense of offering giveaways, so I ask you to please take a few moments and say thank you.

During this blog hop, the Fat Quarter Shop is giving everyone who purchases something at their shop at 10% discount.

Quilt Qwazy Queens Starts Today… Enjoy

Quilt Qwazy Queens

Quilt Qwazy Queens

Today is the start of Quilt Qwazy Queens, it’s one of those sayings that is hard to say, and a little hard to type.. I am not fond of reaching for the Q key on my keyboard and that’s only because I have to do it with my little finger. As quilters tho, you’d think we’d be use to it, but if you have carpal tunnel, it’s not really all that fun.

Coming In September 2016 – The Road Home Row Along

stbs-Road Home logo

Can you believe it? It’s been a year since I approached designers to participate in the EQ Seasons Row Along.

It was held in September 2015 with 21 designers who created row and filler patterns for everyone to download, create and enjoy. EQ Seasons was the first event I held on my blog, and now I’ve already done five of them, with the sixth approaching this friday.

It’s an exciting time at Seams To Be Sew, so many wonderful things going on, and still to come for 2016.

With Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy, who I have partnered with for this Row Along, we have come up with the theme for this years Row Along and have given it the name of

The Road Home Row Along

We are looking for you to create a pattern that depicts places on the way to your home, This doesn’t have to be your current home. We all have a place we call home. As an example, I was raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I consider it home.  I loved living there, I’d move back in a heartbeat, and while I do visit, I’ll probably never get to live there again… For me, I’ll probably draw a row depicting the Snake River and the falls running thru the heart of the city, that’s Idaho Falls to me, it’s home.

I know, I know, I’ve been MIA for 12 days..

International Craft Month 2016

But with good reason.. really… maybe… oh heck, I dunno.. perhaps it’s been the International Craft Month 2016disheartening problems with my internet connection, having to spend much time at the library just to answer email, or try to get things done on the net that I know need to be done… I don’t like to work on my blog at the library because I don’t necessarily trust that the connection is secure there, so I’ve had to wait it out and see what happens. They finally bought a new modem today.. the second one in the last two months now… I’m not the only one who’s had this problem tho, it seems about 20 or so modems went out here in the housing complex, so I’m at least happy to know I wasn’t the only one going crazy.

So how have the last 12 days of your life been?

My friend Darlene over at Quiltshop Gal is doing a Blog Hop during the first part of March… Twelve bloggers over Twelve Days will participate each day in a different project to be featured each day. I am on March 01, so please do remember to stop on in and see what lucky project I’ve made this weekend for ya’ll… maybe even a little freebie will be passed along also… you just never know ya know… 🙂 — got ahead of myself here a bit, my day is near the end of the month, we are all talking about it during the first of the month.. 🙂 Maybe I’ll give you a little peeker on March 01… 🙂
