Hi, I'm Tanya, a wife, a mom, a teacher, and a quilter in Colorado. This is my second year participating in the Grow Your Blog event. Here is the link to the event http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com/2015/01/welcome-to-2015-grow-your-blog-party.html
Since I have quilted for two decades, I have an enormous stash and I love to make things from my scrap bins and stash. This is my Country Little Letters- a stash quilt- which was a part of a quilt along with Temecula Quilt Company.
This is my Variegated Violets Baby Quilt I made for my neighbor. This was also a stash quilt. I followed a tutorial I found on-line and quilted it myself on my Pfaff.
In 2014, I made this Love Blooms Here Wool Felt Quilt featured in Quiltmaker. I enjoy the feel of wool felt and like the primitive hand stitching. It is pinned and ready for hand quilting with perle cotton while I am parked in front of my TV. The only thing I bought to make this quilt was a magazine subscription to Quiltmaker and two small pieces of yellow wool--my stash is large!
Handwork is therapeutic for me, it makes me slow down and relax while creating something with my hands. I like to incorporate embroidery into my quilts. This is a close up of some embroidery in my Journey of a Quilter BOM I have been working on.
I am in the process of hand quilting it and only have the outer border left! Hopefully, it will be hanging in my sewing room in a couple of weeks. Every Sunday, I participate in Slow Sunday Stitching over at http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com for inspiration.
Over the years, I have acquired lots of UFOs and have experimented with many quilting techniques. While digging through some of my stash, I discovered this paper piecing kit. The design is a gardener's potting bench and makes a mini quilt. I know I will never make it because I really dislike paper piecing!
So, how about I give it away! Here are the fabrics included in the kit. To enter, please leave me comment telling me your favorite dog breed (I am a dog lover). I will randomly choose a winner on February 15. Good luck and please visit again!
I am having issues with my follow me with Bloglovin' link and have removed it temporarily, but I hope to get it back up and running soon....
