Quilting Secrets Blog Hop day one



HELLO AND WELCOME TO DAY ONE 
OF THE 
Quilting Secrets blog hop!!

mrs pickles garden

For those of you wondering how this all started well let me tell you!!

Last year I discovered the online quilting community and was overjoyed by their warmth,
helpfulness and creativity. However, as a new quilter seeing all the amazing
quilting/sewing projects out there I felt quite intimidated.

 In fact some projects were so wonderful it got me thinking that their
creators must have some great quilting secrets. With that thought an
idea started to fester in my head...hmmmm Quilting Secrets.....
12 months later and I figured instead of festering I should let my idea out......and

The QUILTING SECRETS Blog Hop was born!!

I have lined up 6 wonderfully talented quilters to join me in sharing a few of their Quilting Secrets !

TODAY ***Christine from Quilt Monster in My Closet DEC 31 ***
Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling JAN 1ST
Barbara from CatPatches JAN 2ND
Melissa from Sewbittersweet designs JAN 3RD
Sharon from Vroomans Quilts JAN 4TH
Sue from Quilt Times JAN 5TH
Hayley from Mrs.Pickles Garden  JAN 6TH

Today’s host is Christine from QuiltMonster in My Closet. I found Christine’s blog last year when I was trying to find my first online quilting bee. She was nice enough to let me join even though I was a beginner and I have been in awe of her talent and kindness ever since. Christine is from Tacoma Washington where she lives with her husband and their 3 cute pets. She started sewing as a teenager and admits that once she started quilting she was quickly addicted.
