Quilters Meet and Greet

>> Tuesday, September 3, 2019



Welcome! Today's the day!


Click on the image above to be taken to the long list of quilters to meet:)

I'm so happy Benita reached out to include me in this year's meet and greet. I've been blogging for ten years this year and know that blogging has been a big part of my development as a quilter.

You can read more about my story here

Feel free to look around as I have tutorials and patterns too :)

liberated churn dash quilt


One of my more successful patterns was created from a quilt bee that I joined online. My beemates followed my tutorial to create liberated churn dash blocks and then I made the BIG blocks and put the quilt together.

I also relied on the friendship of other bloggers to promote my Eat with JOY placemats. You can still visit our Placemat Party by starting here! Blogging has helped me meet quilters from around the world and to be inspired by people I will only ever meet online.


And sometimes we do meet! I've been quilting with an online group of friends for years now and even got to meet up with one and have her quilt one of my quilts! Quilters are the best :)


PFAFF quilt expression 720 quilted banner project

Now I even blogger for others! I've been fortunate to make connections with all kinds of people because of my blogging. I am currently creating projects over at QUILTsocial using the PFAFF quilt expression 720. Lucky me!

You can see my latest project, a quilted banner, here.

The online world has changed a lot since I started blogging, but the desire to connect with another quilter's story remains and blogs still fill that need. I hope that if you have a blog you'll share it in the comments so I can come and visit you!

I'm always drawn to churn dash blocks, so I really like that liberated version. Fun!

Thanks, Karen! I like to design placemats that use precuts now. This was one of my first placemat patterns :)

Thanks Wendy! The churn dash was the block I made for my first online swap. It has become my default block for designing and I still love it!

Nothing makes me smile like a churn dash block, and these ones made me giggle. Wonky is wonderful. Well done.
