GROW YOUR BLOG


VISIT Vicki at 2 Bags Full for a complete list of participating blogs: http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com/


I'm a quilter.
I love all types of quilts: antique, art, modern, colorful, kids, flannel, batik.
This blog is mostly about quilts. You'll find a few other things too: wildlife, nature, cats and dogs, buildings, friends and family. SO have a look around. I hope you enjoy what you see.

I'm giving away a charm pack from Moda: SHARE THE JOY, by Deb Strain and a copy of Quilt Sampler Spring/Summer 2011.
Please leave a comment for a chance to win. I'll pick a random winner at the end of the blog hop, so make sure I can contact you.








Thanks for stopping by,
Katherine

Hi I found your blog thru the hop-I love to quilt too-right now I am going to be working on my 1800s quilts-I have been collecting the reproduction fabrics for a few years now. I just joined in on barbara brackmans civil war bom-glad to meet you Kathy

Hello Katherine-
How lovely to meet you through 'Grow Your blog' link.
I've been a quilter for a long time, but took a break for at least decade or more-ha!
I'm back to quilting this year.
I've always been a hand quilter, you know way back when, but struggle with arthritis in my hands now. When I finish the top to the current quilt I am working on I will take it to be machine quilted.
Moda fabric is my absolute favorite! I love all the pre-cuts available.
I have both of the Moda Bake Shop books, and I love them.
I will be following along and look forward to getting to know better.

Just found you through the blog party. I'm a beginning quilter and am somewhat daunted about what I don't know. Our local quilting group had a large show last year and I was really overwhelmed but impressed and inspired. Look forward to visiting and getting to know you.

I love to quilt, but don't have a lot of time. I retire in 138 days so I will be "gettin' my quilt on" in June.

Lija Broka said...

I wish I could quilt ... but inability to sew straight probably would hinder me. You should have seen the trousers I sew a few years ago. Would love to participate in the giveaway.

Marrianna said...

Okay, I just have to say that I'm finding some great artists through this Grow Your Blog Party. Your work is fantastic. I sew but I don't create quilts. I find old and worn quilts at rummage sales and thrift shops and then use them in my own creations. Keep up the great artwork. I hope to visit some of the blogs you follow when I get back to more blog hopping. Please visit me during this Grow Your Blog Party.

Tammy said...

I like that quilted dress shown in your previous post. I love quilts, especially art quilts, but never learned to sew and don't have the patience for it now. We usually have a quilt show here in May -- always nice to see what the ladies have been up to. Have a great day! Tammy

Hello Katherine

How lovely to meet you via our dear friend Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party!
Thank you for joining my blog.

Maybe you read on my GYB post that I'm about to venture into the world of quilting so your giveaway is really making my mouth water!!!
I'll keep my fingers and toes firmly crossed!!!

I've only got a few fat quarters so far so any extra bits are such a bonus and I already love Moda fabrics.

I'll have to try the library for a Moda book to check out - any others you can recommend for a newbie would be much appreciated.

I’m your newest follower!

I would love you to pop back to my blog and leave a comment to enter my GYB Giveaway!
Enjoy the party
Hugs
Shane ♥

Hello Katherine
Lovely to meet you here through the GYB party thanks to wonderful Vicki.
I am a crazy quilter and am addicted to fabrics - all types and these days seem to be creating more fabric and lace collages, journal books etc.
but it all grew out of my love of crazy patchwork.
I love that quilt on your latest post.
You may like to see the fibre work I create on my blog and enter into my Giveaway too.
Enjoy your time visiting new blogs,
Suzy
