“Grow your blog” blog hop


Welcome to everyone stopping in from the Grow your blog blog hop! (If you’ve already been hanging around here with me a while feel free to skip this one. But if you’re a relatively new reader you might find something new!)

I know you’re visiting a million blogs so I’m going to try to make this easy on you. Here are the top 4 things that come to mind when I think about what’s been going on here lately:

  • Your 1st quilt series – if you’ve never made a quilt before, this series is especially for you! I take you through all the basics you’ll need to make your very first quilt.


  • Sewing room – I shared my new sewing space here:



There’s still plenty of time to join in!

  • 2013 year in review link party – click here to see all the quilts I made in 2013, as well as links to 42 other bloggers’ year in review posts.


As a little “get to know you” gift, I’ll be giving away a specially selected fabric bundle. Just leave a comment telling me what color you want. You don’t have to be a follower to enter, but followers (new & old) do get an extra entry. And if you really love giveaways be sure to come back Sunday morning for another! I’ll leave the giveaway open until Wednesday at noon.

I’m glad you stopped here and I hope you come again soon. Happy hopping!

  1. I love the shelves in your sewing room! I love the color red, but don’t quilt with it much. I’ve been collecting greys and aqua/teals for a new master bed quilt I’ll be designing with my husband, so that would be awesome!

  2. Your quilts are lovely! And thanks for the peak into your sewing room – I love seeing other peoples’ studios. What a great way to organize your fabric. I love purple. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Lovely quilts and projects! I am a new follower by e-mail. Currently I’m following the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt (my first) Celtic Solstice and wondering why king size sounded good when I started cutting. I followed the Kona blog hop earlier this month and am now quite impressed with solid color quilts. Checked the book out from the library and am hoping to get some solids later this week to try one or two out. Thank you for sharing your lovely work…

  4. A whole room just for sewing! I have a dining room table and 2 small drawers. I need more cream fabric for a red and cream quilt for my bed.

  5. orange because it rhymes with absolutely nothing! your studio is amazing…I think I’m green with envy! visiting via Vicki’s GYB party.

  6. Hello Sarah, I am from Australia. What a neat and tidy sewing area! How do you keep it so tidy? You have showcased some lovely work. Well done. Yellow/orange would be my choice. I was saying to my daughter the other day that I did not have one single piece of orange in my stash. (but I now have a couple of FQ)

  7. What beautiful quilts – I have subscribed to your RSS feed – I have only made one quilt in my life but after this hop and seeing so many amazing quilts I am considering giving it a try to make another one – your instructions for a first quilt may push me over the edge to give it a try.

Say something! I love comments.
