Tu-Na Quilts: Welcome to Week One of the New Quilt Bloggers Hop

Here they are all polished and shined up and ready for a visit. You’re all invited to pop over and visit and get to know these new quilt bloggers better. There are fun prizes to be won on our host’s blogs so don’t delay as there are only 4 days to enter.

Meet some of my fellow Blooming Quilters this week by clicking on their link which will take you directly to their post for this hop.

  • Jennifer @Inquiring Quilter You can find out that Jennifer is a list-maker and a planner and discover why and how she chose the name of her blog plus see some fantastic projects she’s done. We are talking major inspiration here. Plus you will want to pop back each day but especially on Wednesday for a little wait loss.

 

  • Fi at living cloth Find out what the word cloth means in her blog name. Fi also shows us her first quilt she ever made and a fun improve tree mini quilt that I just have to make and maybe you will want to make one too. 

 

  • Laura at Slice of Pi Quilts This young mom of two boys is not going to let  her stash gather dust. She designs quilt patterns and completed 34 quilts last year. Now that’s some serious sewing partly made possible by a desire to set goals and achieve them. Oh, my, I do need some of her energy. But don’t worry, she will leave you with a tip on how you, too, can not only manage to get something done but also achieve some lofty goals.

 

  • Bobbi at Snowy Days Quilting It’s a good thing that Bobbi loves snow since she lives in Montana. She shows us some of her quilts that she’s designed and tells us to spin our seams to make them lie flat. Well, I’ve tried and not been successful at spinning seams so I’ll just have to keep practicing it.

 

  • Amanda at Mommy’s Projects Another young mom tells us why she takes time to quilt or play with yarn. She’s got a great quilting tip that I plan to use and you might want to, too.

But that’s not all! Leanne at she can quilt introduces these new quilt bloggers

More new quilt bloggers are coming next week with another round of giveaways.

What I Learned Today:

  1. I have great readers who left me some great stress relievers. Thank you all so much!
  2. My brother suggests that eating a half a bar of chocolate each day is healthful. I haven’t even had time or the desire to eat any lately so I can’t tell you whether that would work for me or not.

Question: What are you craving to eat or do today?

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen

    What I really want to do is catch up with my blog reading AND, finish binding my not a mystery any more quilt. That would make me very happy.

    Kate took the words out of my mouth! I have to catch up with blog reading, start work on my own post and finish binding on a kinda secret sewing project 😀. Now that you said it, I won’t mind having a bar of chocolate today. Very nice introduction of the blog hop. I hope you do feel better now?

    Karen how thoughtful to introduce some of the bloggers in your hive. I have been looking forward to the hop and glad we are moving forward. Today I am working in the yard, trying to get rid of some of the wild picker plants, so we can walk through that part of the yard unharmed. Then tomorrow is back to working on a backing for a Christmas quilt in progress.

    I am catching up on blog reading today and I would really like to also do a bit of sewing this afternoon. I hope that I can find time to get it all done. Thanks for sharing and linking to all the bloggers this week, and I hope that you continue to find stress relief and enjoy some simple pleasures (like chocolate if you choose). 🙂

    I’d like to be home sewing in the sun, but I’m in the office, eating my lunch and reading wonderful blogs.
