Around the World Blog Hop

Hello friends! A couple of weeks ago, I was tagged by Paula from Mud, Pies and Pins in the Around the world blog hop, so welcome to Dusseldorf and to my blog!
April 2014

Spring themed DQM quilt

I met Paula last April at Patchwork in the Peaks and was so impressed by her talent! She makes incredible paper pieced designs and is a very creative and accomplished quilter!

1. What quilting/sewing thing am I working on? 

I've been part of a few bees this year, including Stash Bee for the first time, 5 months in the do.Good.Stitches Charity bee, and 2 rounds of the 4 x 5 Modern Quilting Bee. I've also done a whole bunch of swaps including the recurring Doll Quilters Monthly Swap and the upcoming IGMini Swap.

I am currently working on a whole list of things! I've participated in all 4 quarters of the Finish Along with Katy this year and it's helped me at least to know what I'd like to do next.

I had my first finish for Quarter 4 this weekend and I'm just waiting on some good daylight to get a great picture. I believe it's been on my list all year so it'll be nice to mark this one off!
I have finally started my Noodlehead divided basket. It's all cut out and ready to sew! 

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I'm not sure my work "differs" from others. In these wonderful days of Pinterest, it is nice to take inspiration from everyone and then see where creativity leads!

3. How does my writing/creating process work?
Besides constant blog reading and Pinterest surfing for inspiration, I have a boatload of quilting books to consult. I then bust out the graph paper, colored pencils and ruler and draw my design. Even when I'm following a pattern, I like to draw out the design to get a feel for what's involved, any changes I'd like to make and color placement. It's fun going back through my notebook for inspiration too!

Thank you for visiting! I'll hope you'll stop by again soon.

I'm passing the baton to two lovely ladies met at Patchwork in the Peaks last October. Elita from Busy Needle Quilting is the sunshiney host of Peaks and in addition, this busy lady has an online quilting supply shop and is a long arm quilter. She's one active chick!

LynnePusscat from Confessions of a Quilting Junkie is an amazing quilter with a real eye for color and design. I always covet her fabric selections and she's so dang sweet! You'll enjoy her blog.
