social media slump from Charm About You

Charm About You Lucy Brennan instagram

I am feeling pretty fed up with instagram and social media generally. Sure it can be really fun and there's a fabulous supportive community of quilters but the fast pace and option of just hitting like ❤ isn't cutting it for me anymore. There are so many photos, so many great accounts and just so much to see. I don't feel as much joy though. Too much of a good thing?

Online Quilting Friends from Butterfly Threads


I've always met my favorite people in the craziest places. I met my husband on a bus! But that's another story for another day, LOL.

I have met some really amazing people online since I began this old blog of mine. It's been so wonderful to connect with such interesting people who all quilt, but who are all so different in so many other ways.

Some of these folks are up to some really cool stuff that I want to share with you. I know their blogs are linked on the sidebar, but I want to share ...

What a year! from Daisychain Quilter

I have been busy this year making quilts for exhibiting national, so my blog has been neglected. I have also been 'sewing up a storm' for my Etsy shop too.  I love making bags, cushions and bunting.

Although I have not published any posts this year, I have a lot of draft posts that also need to be finished and published.  So now that things here are a little quieter for a while, I thought I would come back to blogging and update it.

You will see some of the items I have made listed on Daisychain Quilter Etsy. I ...

Wow, I've posted about five years of weekly pins. Some of my own pin, some from followers, some from pinners who just happen to have great boards and ideas.

Five years! 250 posts. I'm quite happy with my stick-to-it ability. (It's a rare thing.)

rights and obligations from easypatchwork

With the recent implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Datenschutz Grundverordnung (DSGVO) and the deadline of May 25, 2018 to get everything up to speed, a lot of panic and heated discussions were on the rise, especially for little businesses such as mine. I made it through and here are my thoughts. So what is the whole General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR

Fons and Burns: Catch up now! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Mary Fons (Google Images)
For those of you who do not know, I have kind of an infatuation with Mary Fons. She is a fabulous writer and a cute little thing to boot. With any luck, I'll have an opportunity to shake her hand.

I read her blog, PaperGirl, in fits and starts. I may skip her posts for a month or so, but then I have to catch up with her again. That's when I go back to where I left off and read every article posted in the meantime. It may be that I'm obsessed ...

for
Project Quilting.

My entry is
Time to Stitch



She announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.


When the challenge, 
"A Stitch in Time" was announced
my thoughts went back to pre-blogging days 
when I really didn't have a platform to share my projects
or
any challenges to push myself to be better. 

So I decided to dedicate this challenge to ...

There are Several “Popabilities”! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

I am about to mention a tool that I am sure that I have made reference to previously.   However, if by any small chance you missed the initial reveal of this tool; I will share with you one more time just how much I LOVE my  Corner Pop tool .

During the last couple of months I’ve been in my studio dedicating time to a special project, along with squeezing in time for my four-year quilt.  The Corner Pop tool and technique has made a huge difference in creating this design.

The photograph below shows the beginnings of the design ...

30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days from Creatin' in the Sticks


Tomorrow a new challenge begins here in the Sticks.

I've created quilt blocks that are fast to make, easy for a beginner, and perfect for fabric scrap busting.

This challenge became a reality when I joined Cheryl Sleboda's


31 Day Blog Writing Challenge
where  all you have to do is post once a day on your blog for 31 days!  

I realized while I have a lot of projects to post this month, I don't really have 31 days of information I think is blog worthy.

But the idea of the challenge is to build habits that ...

Bird is the Word* from Indigo Threads

"Bird" is the word I drew for the Animal Challenge by the Tacoma Modern Quilt Guild.  

"Bird is The Word"
19.5" w X 18" h
The word brings to mind so many possibilities....owls, penguins, emus, cardinals, eagles and so on.  But I knew immediately that I wanted to make my bird with Lynn's tutorial.  Lynn blogs at Patchery Menagerie, and her tutorial is available on her Etsy site.  I've long admired Lynn's way with improv and especially her fabric choices.  So I bought both the bird tutorial and the tutorial on making your fabric work ...
