Electric Quilt and Sulky Intl Are the Featured Giveaways for the Row Along … Today. from Seams To Be Sew

Did you know that the reason I opened this blog when I did was because I had joined an EQ blog hop?

Today, I love EQ just as much as the day I started learning it. I’ve been an EQ owner since sometime back in the 90’s.. I just ...

Today’s Giveaways for the RowAlong Inspired LED, Aurifil, and Hobbs Batting… from Seams To Be Sew

The amazing giveaways for the row along come to you today from Inspired LED, Hobbs Batting, Aurifil. Among all the great giveaways being offered for the row along, these are amongst my three favorite items. I have used Hobbs Batting for as long as I can remember as a quilter and the warmth it provides when I sleep under it. It always leaves me with that feeling like why do I want to get up into a cold room.. hehehe. I have always loved working with this batting also. I find it very easy to stitch thru. My first impression ...

Just as quilters who use bloggers have their headaches sometimes with Blogger, WordPress users experience the same issues. WordPress decides to make a change that is so massive in its change it can and most likely will affect your entire site.

Suffice it to say, I am old and set in my ways and I do not like it… Heck, I didn’t even survive 2 minutes trying it ...

Where Flowers Bloom Grows Today At Seams To Be Sew… from Seams To Be Sew

Today is a fun blog hop hosted by Carla at Creatin In The Sticks. The idea of this hop is that we should have a flower somewhere in our project… It can be in the fabric print itself, the pattern, the quilting, or maybe even a project shaped like a flower. When it comes to flowers, my favorite flower has always been Lilacs. I absolutely love the smell of lilacs, the pretty purple, pink and white colors I’ve seen them in and I love that they grow in a bush type shape.  I haven’t done lilacs for you ...

Incredibly Amazing Quilts from Some of the Most Talented Machine Quilters from Quilter Chic

Inside: 2018 UQSM Virtual Quilt Show

I am not worthy! This is what goes through my head every year I attend the UQSM (formerly HMQS) quilt show. It is right in my backyard in Salt Lake City. I’ve gone since it started many years ago. It started out very small and now it is one of the premier quilt shows in the country.

The quilters that submit their quilts for this show are the best, and as usual I am wowed by their work. Enjoy this virtual tour! I was proud of myself that I took pictures of most ...
