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… Continue reading
I’m always sad on the last day of a blog hop… this one has been really fun seeing the crazy projects, whether you think they are crazy or not, sometimes it’s just the story behind the project that makes it really crazy as we have all seen so far.

I’ll be announcing it on Friday as tomorrow I am planning the release of Twas the Night Blocks 17 and 18… the patterns are getting there final touches today and I will release them tomorrow along with announcing the winners for the FQS giveaway during this blog hop.

Be sure you pop inside this post to either enter the giveaway or download your free pattern of the day.
As always, these events just seem to pass by so quickly. Its hard to believe that tomorrow will be the last day but so far and I know you might agree with me its’ been great seeing all the craziness happening in our little quilt world here on the net. I love the internet, how else would I ever get to see all the gorgeous quilts and projects that are created by others. Don’t get me wrong I also love quilt shows, but with those you are limited to those who show and don’t see the bigger picture. The internet on the other hand opened us all up to the possibilities of seeing what is happening everywhere. Thus, I love the internet.
Lets see what other crazy projects are being offered today….

It’s that time of the year again when Worldwide Quilting Day rolls around to what seems to always be the third Saturday in March. I’m kinda waiting for the 1st of March to fall on a Sunday to see if that date changes, but I won’t know until next year when it will finally fall on a Sunday. Next year it will either fall on the 14th or the 21st. We shall see 🙂 My way of celebrating this special day is by offering this same blog hop each year with a different theme. I don’t like to ask quilters to make anything although they are certainly free to do so, but instead I like for them to draw from there history as a quilter which I believe brings us all together in that special way.
This year I’ve asked them to show off the craziest thing they ever made. I’m very excited to see what they’ve done or come up with this year to show off.
Be sure you look inside, the giveaways will be are set so you can leave a comment at each site, and if the blogger has a social media page or a shop these links have also been added to give you more opportunities to enter the giveaways.
I’ve also got my free pattern per day during the hop on this page, so be sure you check out the pattern of the day to.
Here is the schedule today:
Melva Loves Scraps | Words & Stitches
Websterquilt | Seams To Be Sew
My project is a wearable. When I first started quilting back in 1988, it never occurred to me to make wearables as a quilted project. At that time, rotary cutters were not even a widely used product in the quilting world. I had already been using a rotary cutter for cutting patterns with for clothing. I used drapery weights instead of pins for my patterns and then cut around those patterns with a rotary cutter. Suffice it to say when I took my first quilting class in January of 1988, I blew everyone in class away with how fast I cut out that Log Cabin quilt for the shapes needed. Even my teacher had never heard of a rotary cutter. As time passed and I grew stronger as a quilter, I started taking classes at some of the shops in Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh. Back then we lived in Cumberland, Maryland which is situated about 2 1/2 hours from Pittsburgh and D.C, even tho they are in opposite directions. I didn’t go to Pittsburgh quite as often as I did D.C., but I did love the shops there and the one thing that got me there was a good class. The project that I’m showing today is from a class I took in Pittsburgh back in 1991.
Coming this Friday, March 15, is Quilt Qwazy Queens. I hold this event each year to honor Worldwide Quilting Day. It’s one of my favorite events of the year.
Each year I pick a different theme for this event which I hope will be fun for everyone. This year I asked bloggers to show us there craziest projects they ever made. It could include crazy fabric, or something that turned out just fun and wacky, or could use various materials to make a quilt like a project. I can’t wait to see what everyone shows off starting this coming Friday. I’ll give you a hint.. mine is not necessarily quilted, but has a quilted effect. I made it nearly 30 years ago when I was first learning to quilt and because it’s wearable, and yes, I do still wear it today I get many comments on it. It will be fun to see what you all think of my crazy and wacky project.
Today I am providing the schedule so you can plan your schedule.
