August Quilting Project

Well this month I ran across something that was so much work, yet so much fun to do. While I was popping from website to website looking at patterns and tutorial I ran a website where they were hosting a Blog Hop.  Everyone that signed up had to use the same pattern and display their block on a given day.  It was Awesome.

The hop that was running was called “Bowls without Borders”, there were 165 people that took part in this Blog hop and it was so fun to go every day and see the different projects that were submitted.

After each day’s group the images were loaded on pintrest (view the pinterest board). Be prepared to spend some time looking at all the submissions, they came from all over the world – that even made it funner, going to websites that are in German, Spanish, etc. What an adventure.

Paper Piecing quilt block

So, I ordered the pattern and did one myself. I have never done a paper piecing project before, so this was really a challenge for me. It went together in one afternoon. Then I took it one stop farther and actually quilted it on my big machine that I haven’t used yet (Sweet Sixteen) and put on a boarder.  It was fun. A good challenge and I learned a couple of things. But the thing my hubby is the happiest about is that I used the big quilting machine for the first time.

So as I was looking around the first site, I noticed that they have blog hops scheduled for every month or so and I signed up for the “Leafs me Happy” hop in October. I have figured out what I am going to do and I can’t wait to do the block in the next week.

Here are some of the other hops that are scheduled:
