Around the World Blog Hop

Welcome to another stop on the Around the World Blog Hop!

I was asked to join in by Lori of Lori Hartman Designs. We have hosted swaps together as well as helped along young chapters of our respective Modern Quilt Guilds. She is uber creative and you should swing by to see what she has been working on lately.

What am I working on:

This being the new year, I have some grand plans. About half a dozen UFO's that I would really love to finish as well as a Husker t-shirt quilt and a very personal quilt for one of my dearest friends. And, because I can't say no to my great sewing circle, I am signed up for a paper piecing bee (3 blocks a month), a traveling quilt, a pillow swap and birthday club. Quarter 1 will be busy. I love it!

Here is a progress shot of those paper pieced blocks I was telling you about. They will have a low volume background and this quilt will be stunning!

Why do you create:

I love making things for other people and also for myself. The process of selecting fabrics, contemplating designs, auditioning fabrics and then seeing a finished product fills me with great satisfaction. Additionally, when you make something for someone and they love it, it just warms my heart.

This is a great time to introduce you to Lyanna of Blue Striped Room. We met a couple of years ago at a Sewing Retreat and I am in awe of how productive she is while being a mom to five kids. Head on over to see her recent projects which include a cargo bag and a sew-together bag, along with lots of quilts for Christmas gifts.
Here is a great shot of her holiday finishes - gorgeous!

Wishing you a productive week!
