As soon as this hop was announced I knew I had to join. I also knew what quilt to make. Around four years or so ago I designed several paper peiced diamond quilts just for fun.
Today is the first day of the All About Strings Blog Hop. Thanks so much to Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks for hosting.
I have never made a strings quilt before. So after researching on how they are made I went to my EQ8 and began to play around with a few design ideas.
Looking back, from the time I started quilting, I can’t really say I’ve made something really crazy. Unless you count the time I made a fish head costume for my son. I wish I had pictures of that, lol. But, that was not a ‘quilting’ thing anyway.
Thanks so much Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for being such a great hostess.
When Carol first announced this hop I knew right away what pattern I wanted to make and with what fabric. Feathers by The Pattern Basket and Sequoia fabric line by Edyta of Laundry Basket Quilts. I had both in my stash. I bought the pattern last year with the idea when I was feeling better I would try to piece it.
Thanks to Bea of Beaquilter for getting this hop together.
For me this hop was last minute. I had signed up but somehow there was a mix up and my name was missed. But, it all worked out and I was added in around the end of last week.
Of course, that meant I had the weekend to get my project done. But, I was up for the challenge.
Today is the first day of the Black and White Blog Hop hosted by Carla of Creatin in the Sticks. It’s going to be a fantastic day of awesome quilters and sewers.
This is my 4th year participating in the Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop. It’s always so much fun seeing what kind of cookie everyone chooses to share. Thank you Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for hosting every year and doing such a great job!
This year we could choose to bake, make, or both. I’m still dealing with current health issues so decided to just bake.
