GROW YOUR BLOG

Hi and welcome to my blog. My name is Cindy, I live in Southwestern, Ontario Canada. I'm a new blogger in the world of quilting. I have been quilting about 15 years. It has really only been the last few years that I have spent more time on quilting and I am loving it. I started my blog to showcase my addiction yes I admit it I am addicted.





Thanks Vicki for doing this. I know it is a lot of work. I'm glad I could help out in a small way by being one of your volunteers.
I like doing machine applique and am thinking of making applique patterns. I love my digital programs and also have a blog for digital scrapbooking, if your interested you can see it here.



I love quilting and working with fabric. I don't always follow patterns, I sometimes use them as guidelines and adapt them to make them my own. Sometimes my bright ideas work out and other times... well we won't mention those right now.

If you want to see the list of blogs that are participating just go to Vicki's blog here.

Please make sure you are a no reply blogger. Simply go to your blogger profile page and add your email address. It's as easy as that.

Hello Cindy. On behalf of Vicki and the Grow Your Blog Party, welcome aboard! Glad you've decided to join in the fun. I've had a quick peek around your blog, I'll be back later for a longer look. LOVE the quilt you did for Justin. He must be so happy with it, it is beautiful. You might consider adding a photo or two to your party post- most people are drawn to photos and will be more likely to return and/or follow you. (I think the photo of Justin's quilt would be a lovely addition.)
Hope you have lots of fun with the party, and find many new blogs to follow and enjoy. Let the fun begin!

Lovely quilts and designs--thanks for sharing!

Carol said...

Beautiful quilts!! I find I don't have the patience for quilting or at least I didn't the last time I tried which 18 years ago. Perhaps it's time to try again.

you are the first quilter on here that i hadn't been following but do now, just came over from Vicki's list

Terry said...

Hi Cindy!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog! I love your quilts! I tried quilting several years ago and discovered that I didn't have the precision gene. I was overwhelmed by how precise everything needs to be when quilting. However, I do love quilts and I certainly admire yours.

With gratitude,
Terry

Hi Cindy - I'm Sandra, one of Vicki's helpers...thanks for being a GYBP 2015 blogger; enjoy the party!

Veronica Roth said...

Hello fellow Canadian blogger. :D How lovely to meet you Via the GYB event. I don't really quilt but have made two small ( and very basic) quilts for my daughters made of squares from skirts which used to belong to my late relatives (their grandmother, two great aunts, and a great grandmother). They treasure them. Quilts are such wonderful treasures, aren't they. Off now to figure out the best way to follow. :D

Stopping by via GYB. I too have a fabric/quilt addiction! Once I got back into quilting, it took over my space and free time! I find myself designing patterns at the oddest times. I love your mauve quilt!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I think being addicted to quilting is a good thing. I'm just embarking on making my first 'real' quilt and must admit that I'm rather intimidated...it's a whole new process from the crazy quilting I am so passionate about.

Hi Cindy, visiting from the GYP link up. I love that top quilt you have showcased. Really stunning
