Welcome to Week 3 of the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop!
I’m thrilled to be participating this year with so many awesome bloggers! I’ve met some great people and we’ve had fun sharing advice and ideas.
The blog hop is split into three hives:
Hive Sewciety, led by Stephanie from Late Night Quilter
The Sewcial Network, led by Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl
And last, but certainly not least, my hive: Miss Bee Hivin’ led by Cheryl from Meadowmist Designs
At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a list of all my hive mates who are participating in the Hop this week.
So, let me introduce myself! My name is Lorinda Davis and I’ve been blogging here for just over a year. My quilting journey began back in the spring of 2013 when my (then home schooled) children each made a quilt block for a Civil War project. I was intrigued by the way the block changed so dramatically as a result of the kids’ different color and fabric choices. And as they say, the rest is history…. from that moment, I was hooked.
Here are a few more tidbits about me:
Favorite color: Green, pink, purple, and blue… not necessarily in that order. Making me choose a favorite seems unfair.
Middle name: Belle (also my favorite Disney princess. I want her library.)
Favorite (non-quilty) pastimes: Hiking with my family, reading, singing and playing piano
Dream vacation: Tour of Europe with tons of time to really see things, visit museums, and get to know some locals. More realistically, my family has been itching for a Disney World trip lately.
If I could have one super-power: Super-speed! I could do so many fun things!
Here are some of my favorite projects over the last year.
And here’s a quilt top I just finished a couple of weeks ago. You can find the free pattern here.
So, my question for you is this: What is your favorite thing about quilting?
For me, it’s the ‘bookends’ of a project… planning it and then hand binding it at the very end.
As promised, here is a list of all my hive mates who are participating in the Hop this week. Be sure to visit them all to find out more about them and their work. That’s really the best part of the Hop- getting to know new people!
