Quilty Community is the Best

As most of you know, I started quilting about 2 years ago.  Very basic patterns and sending out my first few quilts to a longarmer.  I grew past the longarmer or as you could say my pocketbook said if you want to keep making quilts at this pace, you better figure out how to do this quilting yourself.

On to my quilty friends.  I was “chosen” to be part of the 2017 New Quilt Blogger Hop and we started in April 2017.  I met some wonderful folks through that group.  One dear lady, Something Rose Made, and I had similar blog learning experiences and quickly became the problem children.

Over the course of time, we commented on each others posts and she had some beautiful scrappy quilts.  I mentioned that I didn’t really have a stash, but one day I would be make some scrappy quilts.

Several weeks ago, Rose asked for my address so she could send me some of her scraps.  I was thrilled.  After she returned from vacation, she send me a box.

AHHHHHH!  Yesterday I received a box of “scraps” by Rose’s definition.  By my definition it was beautiful FQs and many strips and pieces.


The first fabric I bought that was a collection was a jelly roll of by Me and My Sisters Design, Dot Dot Dash.  I have bought every collection by the girls since then.  So I was thrilled to see these FQ’s.  I have no idea and I have a hundred ideas of what I might do.  But we know that making quilting decisions is not quick for me.

Then there are all these wonderful stripes of low volume.  Of course, you guessed it I don’t really have any low volume fabric.

She also included several fun prints and my first Cotton & Steel fabrics.  These may make it to my favorite list.  But I think my favorite fun print is the bowling score sheet print.


There were also a few little projects and a beautiful angel pin that Rose made.  It is beautiful and I need to find the right place at my machine.  Maybe she can keep me on the right track as I continue my quilting fun.

Rose I can’t thank you enough for your kindness.  May your day be full of joy and laughter.

    I have this bad habit when I surf the blogs of not reading the blogger’s name and just looking at the pictures. While I was surfing tonight, I sort of went past your post and then realized that fabric, etc. looked familiar and yes it was my fabric bomb. If I would have thought of it sooner, I would have changed one of the selvedges on the Me and My Sister FQ to read Me and My Problem Sister which is our endearing name we called each other. Those FQs were a problem for me and I’m glad I found a fan of their fabrics so I was happy to send them to you. And I got to spread the C+S and low volume love. And then there’s my ulterior motive of meeting my Minus 100 Yard Challenge…..thanks for helping me out. I’m glad we met on Blogland and there’s no better place to meet a problem sister.

    What a wonderful gift! So many connections have come out of the New Quilt Bloggers hop and it so neat to read about yours. You and Rose are probably the nicest “problem children” there are!
