There are EVENTS happening around blogland folks! All kinds of them. Here's a few I think you should know about:
- ROUND TWO of the mini quilt swap hosted by schnitzel & boo! I had a blast creating Crazy Rainbow in the last round, and made new friends in both the giving and the receiving. So yeah, I'm be joining in again.
- A New Quilt Blogger blog hop from plum and june. I participated a couple of years ago and it was a great opportunity to share myself as well as meet others. I kinda forgot till I looked back that it was also when I created and shared my tutorial for my Logo Card Holder which I still use whenever I go to guild meetings or other quilt events. Anyway, if you've been blogging less than 2 years, do consider checking in with Beth and joining in!
- Giveaway Day is just around the corner, beginning on Monday, May 12! The biannual event by Sew, Mama, Sew is a chance to givea way and win supplies and handmade items. It's tons of fun, especially now that it really lasts a whole week!
- The Blogger's Quilt Festival is a fun event hosted by Amy's Creative Side, and I look forward to participating again! Basically it's a huge online quilt show, so click through for the details and start thinking about what quilt(s) you want to share!
Next up are 2 new tutorials I've pinned to my Quilt BLOCKS Pinterest board. First a Half Rectangle Triangle tutorial by a thousand Needles. Allegory made me really happy by adding some tips on adjusting block sizes to an already excellent tutorial - very helpful!
And a block I have never seen before - the Curved Log Cabin block tutorial by Carly/CitricSugar on flickr. I'm trying to imagine how this will get incorporated into a quilt, but felt it was definitely worth sharing. Have you seen it in use before?
Finally, I shared this detail photo of my Canvas quilt on AQT facebook yesterday and got this comment from Janice: "I mean this as a compliment. I like that you are a real person and your rows are just slightly crooked as all of ours would be. Thank you for not being perfect and giving me hope that I can still quilt even though I can't sew straight some times."
Linking up with Random Thursday.
