Giving Thanks Blog Hop

To visit my fellow bloggers!

It's that wonderful time of year, when we take a moment or two to really think about the good things in life.
What better time than Thanksgiving time.  Thank you Michelle for bringing us all together to celebrate a wonderful time of the year!

Here is the USA, fall is upon us. Leaves have fallen in my part of the country, and the warm reds and yellows are changing to brown. But it all makes me warm and fuzzy...


I would like to share my warm and fuzzy color log cabin quilt with you. It's called "Autumn at the Cabin". It was the shop hop quilt in 2010 for the Central Kansas Quilt shops. 

I love the cream color background fabric. It was a specialty fabric that Hoffman made just for their hop.  All the names of the cities that participated in the hop were on it.  How cool is that?


I fell in love with this quilt, when I saw it hanging in the Quilting Bee in Salina Kansas. I was lucky enough to visit them during a Quilt Shop Bus Tour that took in 3 states, back in 2010. I can't tell you just how much fun that trip was!  :-)


This shop did a little damage to my credit card! 
LOL!!



You can surely see why!
See the quilt that caught my eye, hanging in the classroom photo above?



 I've always loved a log cabin... but couple that with my favorite fusible applique, and I can't help but fall in love.


The Quilting Bee was so kind, to ship me the kit once the fabrics arrived in their store. But there were 9 other shops involved. I didn't get fabrics from each of them. I shopped my stash instead. I do, so love being able to shop the stash, when I can! 

This quilt was so fast and fun to put together, that I am asking myself, just why did it take you 3 years to open the package???  Oh that endless bag of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks).   But I am please to say, I checked off another one of em!  


                                                           :-)

I can't tell you, just how thankful I am, for you!   Each and every one of you, who have read and supported my blog for 5 years now.  I started blogging to encourage myself to finish up those PIGS, that I have.  While it probably hasn't been as successful on that front, cause you all keep finding me new things to try.  Yeah, you know who you are. All of you, who share their patterns, quilt-a-longs, stitcheries, tips and tricks. I can't get enough of it all.   So much so, that my PIGS have a hard time fighting their way out of that sack!   LOL!!  But you know I love it! I've made so many wonderful friends in blogland, too.

Have you ever sat and thought about blogging?  It's the one place were we come to meet others with like interests. We take all the other peripheral "stuff "out of the equation, and make friends based on our love of whatever we blog about. Sharing is rampant and support unlike anywhere else I've been. I may not know your face, or where or how you live, but I do know, I love what you have to share and have taught me. Humility is the word that comes to mind. The definition of it is "the state of being humble and free from pride".  I can honestly say, you all humble me every day with your endless encouragement and inspiration.  Pride...  I fall down when it comes to that. I wear my pride of being a part of you, on my sleeve, for all to see!  And I won't apologize for that!  :-) 

So what I really have to be thankful about this season, is the fact I am starting my 6th year blogging. You have helped me grow to having 700 Google followers and 374 Bloglovin followers (and counting). Email followers... whew, who knew! 

If your new to my blog, welcome.  My goal is to inspire and entertain you down this crazy quilting road we all seam to love to travel!  I'd love for you to join me!  I promise a raucous fun time along the way.
                                                          ***
Along the way...lets have a give a way, wadda say?  (I'm such a poet)   NOT!   tee hee


A 1 yard piece of this wonderful Thanksgiving fabric.
And a few secret goodies!
:-)

You can see what I did with this fabric last year.


Leave me a comment telling me about why you love blogging.  Please make sure your are not a no reply blogger. On Tuesday Nov. 26th, I will pick a winner! 

Remember I promised a raucous time!
:-)

Just so you know, I am in the process of a garden remodel.
I will soon have an outhouse (not a real one) with a deck and some rocking chairs
Toilets are going to be turned into planters. And we will be able to sit along the pond.
Bringing out the redneck in me!  LOL!!
What will the neighbors think?
:-)
Happy Thanksgiving.
You might consider being happy your not my neighbor!
hahahahahaha

  2. For a minute there I was hoping you were going to give me that beautiful quilt. Isn't it great to share your works with others. I started my blog so I could share with family and friends never realizing I could make so many more friends.

  3. I love helping my family stay updated on our life happenings. I love being inspired and sharing my inspirations... And blogging keeps me focused on my sewing to-do list!

  4. I think you are right about bloggers seeming to be neighbors. I've followed quite a while. When google reader went away, I moved to RSS feed. I also do Bloglovin - I didn't know which to pick, but RSS is my usual one. Thanks for 5 years of good reading and eye candy!

  5. Your autumn quilt is really wonderful. The colors are so warm and inviting. I love blogging because I have met some of the nicest and most generous friends. The inspiration is never ending.

  6. Beautiful log cabin ...I am one of those Bloglovin followers of yours. I love blogging. I love to meet and make friends with similar interest. I love to see the photos of projects everyone is working on or has finished. I also love to see the glimpses of far away places I will never get to travel too.

  7. I love your log cabin. I'm a follower of blogs, don't have one of my own.. too busy following everyone else.

  8. I love getting feedback from other quilters about things that I am struggling with currently and all the amazing inspiration that I get from others

  9. I love your log cabin quilt! The applique on the front is a great idea and I've never seen that on a log cabin before. I love reading blogs, learning from them and being inspired by them. One of these days I'll feel like I have enough time to write one, but right now I just don't. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. I don't have a blog of my own. I love reading all the blogs I follow for inspiration and ideas and tips. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I don't write a blog but just reading them inspires me daily. Like you, I find it wonderful that so many people are willing to share on blogs and that there is such a large community of people with common interests. Today your blog has made me want to make a fall log cabin quilt -- your is just gorgeous! Love the Thanksgiving fabric, thanks for the chance to win!

  12. Who cares what the neighbors think - if you love it I say go for it. :) It's a beautiful quilt so I can sure see why it caught your eye. I started blogging several years ago when I had a TIA and an upcoming mission trip was cancelled for me. I was at home along...hubby had gone on the trip....and my daughter suggested I find some quilting blogs to read. I'm sure she knew I would be hooked! blessings, marlene

  13. It's just as you said, Joan - a place to meet others with the same interest. Bloggers are so interesting, so helpful, so inspiring! This is my fifth year of blogging also and I've enjoyed it very much. Love your log cabin quilt - I'm nuts about applique and piecing together in one quilt. Thanks for the chance!

  15. I started blogging as a journal about my quilting adventure. It's been amazing to meet so many creative and talented people.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Beautiful quilt! I like blogging because it helps me journal more regularly than I might otherwise. It's fun for me to look back at what I've done (or not done) as the years go by. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. the quilt is stellar congrats on the finish. I have followed you for some time now and it's been a hoot. My favorite part about blogging is the distances we travel on line. I now have friends all over the US and Canada and as far away as Australia. I currently live in NJ but we have purchased a house in FL to retire to. I met a gal from my new neighborhood who was following the same blog as I was. Blogging makes for a very small world.

  18. I love your log cabin quilt too. Blogging helps me see the world outside of where I am--it opens the world.

  19. I don't have a blog but I follow ALOT! I like the inspiration, the stories, the recipes' the sharing and making new friends. Thank you for the giveaway.

  20. Blogging actually helps me create more and use all the fabric I purchase. I like to be able to show my relatives and friends what I am working on. When I see I have gone too many days without posting I know I better find time to get back at the machine.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your log cabin finish is gorgeous! Just love all those fall colors :-) I'm a pretty new follower plus I live in Scotland so if you don't include me in your giveaway I totally understand. I read blogs more than I post on my own but Blogland has introduced me to a wonderful community of talented crafters (like yourself ;-) ). I find so much inspiration online, just wish I could find a way to add enough hours to the day to make everything! Happy Thanksgiving! Helen

  22. Great quilt..... I'm so glad you got it finished! I love blogging for the inspiration and support of other bloggers. There is always someone out there to push me along to try new things and to share what I'm working on. Quilting can be kind of isolating and blogging opens up my home to others. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Love your quilts!!! I am so thankful for my friends in blogland and home.

  26. Love the log cabin quilt and oh my G! Now I would love that Idea of toilet bowl planters on a deck - we still have the old outhouse on the farm (don't want to sit next to that). I started blogging as a journal, but it has extended well beyond that - frienships, inspiration, education, a new community of family.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've been to The Quilting Bee myself several times. I started blogging so I could share and exchange ideas. And it works sometimes a little too well. I find myself with a lot of ideas and too little time. lol Thanks for the opportunity. You can add me to your list of followers.

  28. I don't blog myself but I LOVE reading others blogs......such inspiration.

  31. I love blogging so I can meet other quilters and get inspired by them. And I think it really works. I sew so much more since I started blogging over 2 years ago. I often do the blog hops at Sew We Quilt, so I am very familiar with your blog too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've been blogging for 2 years as paper crafter then now I have my digital design blogging, baking and in the future when I have lots of projects will open my sewing blogging. Blogging is relaxing, nice to share ideas and get ideas from others too and what's more you make lots of friends .

  34. I just found you blog through Pinterest. I love the fall log cabin! I started a blog a couple of years ago, and only have 13 followers. It is discouraging to tell you the truth. I'm not sure if people can't find it, or if I have some setting wrong. Anyway, I enjoy working on it. Stop by, if you get a chance. Renaissancesandi.blogspot.com

  35. I am not really sure if I like blogging. I started a blog but I just cant find the time to keep it updated so there is very few followers. I would rather read blogs I get really inspired looking at other peoples blog.

  36. My son got my into reading blogs. I have learned so much for my quilting. When my sisters and I get together and I tell them something new they always want to know how I found out. I keep telling them to read the quilting blogs.

  37. I adore your turkey table runner!! I love blogging because it's like catching up with good friends over a cup of coffee but I don't have to worry about getting dressed, getting out of the house or spending money :)

  39. I don't have a blog but I read a WHOLE bunch of them. Sometimes it takes me 3 hours in the morning to go through all of them, especially if they have tutorials or giveaways or blog hops. I feel like I know alot of the people that blog. Love reading about them. So I am thankful for all you people that do take the time to blog and inspire us. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  40. Hey neighbor, I just received my fancy Christmas fabric in the mail and love all that manly magic. I didn't even realize you were in Colorado and now I see you have hopped the border to some Kansas quilt shops. I really like that log cabin quilt. The colors are great for fall. Love your blog and your humor. Blogging has brought friendships and opportunities I never dreamed of. I am inspired everyday by all the talented creators out there.

    I can't wait to see photos of your outdoor decorating!! I know you will have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love that fall quilt too! Anything that reminds me of autumn is a treat. I am really enjoying this blog hop. I'm a blogger also, but for other people in the design industry and in business. It's how I make my living, but quilting is how I feed my creativity. Thanks for participating in this!

  51. Such a gorgeous fall quilt. Love fall and pumpkins! I love blogging because of all the amazing people you meet that way. In the past year that I#ve been blogging I made a bunch of new friends and noticed that people are extremely encouraging and it's not bad to show your mistakes because we all make them.
    Also, a lot of times, things that you see yourself as mistake, won't be recognized as such by others.

    Don't wanna miss it anymore :)

  61. Over the past two years I have fallen in love with quilting/crafting blogs. I have learned soooo much! Almost a year ago I started my own blog, not really to get a bunch of followers, but for my non-quilty friends who wanted to see what I was working on... But of course once I started I kind of got addicted to getting new followers that I didn't know IRL, its just really fun to meet new people from all over with like interests!

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks for the chance.

  65. I'm not much of a fan of Thanksgiving prints most of the time, but I LOVE this one! I blog because it's a wonderful way to keep track of everything I make. Especially the items I give away and probably won't see again!

  66. Oh. My. Goodness I am full love and lust over that log cabin pumpkin quilt!!!! Oh be still, my heart... Like you, I can't get enough of yummy quilty blogs and I spend waaaaaay more time visiting with quilters than in my own 'stewdio'. I am one of those that has been dogging your heels for quite a while now, and I cannot wait to see your garden outhouse. :D

  70. I'm not creative enough to maintain a blog of my own...it would take away from the ones that I read :)

    I'm not sure what part of Colorado you're in (I'm guessing Mtns due to the moose) but I lived in Castle Rock area for almost 17 years.

    Don't know if you know but the makers of "Add a Quarter" ruler are from Franktown...how cool is that?

    Good luck and hope you have a great holiday season

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think your log cabin quilt is beautiful. I have to tell you a true story. There was a couple in my church and when the wife found out she didn't have long to live, unbeknownst to her husband she had ordered a flower arrangement to be sent to the funeral home and had it sent in a vase that was a replica of a toilet. It apparently was a running joke with them.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I don't really have a blog, but occasionally (rarely) post on a group blog. I just enjoy looking at others' blogs and get ideas for my projects that way. Your log cabin quilt is now another one that gives me inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Gosh you made me realize something! Blogs are a place to go to share and have fun. To leave our troubles someplace else! I never thought about it too much, but you are exactly right! Thanks for the lovely words :)

  78. Wow! I just love your Autumn at the Cabin quilt! The cream color background fabric really is cool! I don't blame you at all for falling in love with it, because I think I have as well. I tried doing a google search for it, but couldn't find it. I like shopping my stash as well. Congrats for getting this quilt done! I'm still a beginner. My first blog post was just a little
    over a year ago which was also when I started quilting. Sharing and support is definitely plentiful in the quilting world. I have met some really wonderful people during this past year. I don't blog a lot, but I do chat a lot on facebook and on other people's blogs! It's about time for me to get to bed. I am following you on Bloglovin' and look forward with chatting with you again! Thanks for the chance to win!

  80. I read blogs for a long time before I launched into one myself early this year. I am still learning the tricks of the trade, and quite enjoy it. I love just putting my ideas down, my thoughts and my triumphs. I don't really know how many people actually read my posts, and I only have a few followers, so its pretty easy just to ramble on with what I am up to. It still feels a bit anonymous.
    Love you log cabin. The very first quilt I made was a log cabin, and I haven't got around to making another. Maybe that should be a project for next year.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Autumn at the Cabin is stunning! I started a blog years ago as a challenge at work but don't blog on it. The enjoyment for me is to follow other great blogs, like yours!

  82. The toilets will give your neighbors something to talk about:-) i haven't brought myself to bloggin yet. I think I would feel pressured to quilt a ton of stuff to post about. I do enjoy seeing what everyone else is up to though. svonfumetti(at)yahoo(dot)com

  94. I have been blogging for about 7 years. I get from it what I don't get every day. I can indulge my reading and quilting passions without boring my local friends who only want to hear so much about either. It als brings me friends who might be working on the same quilts or reading the same books and we can share our questions and concerns. I really enjoyed your post. Thanks.

  95. Blogging makes me accomplish more, so I have something to talk about . It also helps me keep track of what I've made.

  100. I love the sense of community we have through blogging. I can't always get together with my quilting friends as much as I'd like but the blogging community is always there when I need an inspiration-fix and I love the sense that, in a small virtual way, we are sharing our lives together in a larger community. pbstrand@msn.com aka Beth @ Words & Stitches.

  118. well there are several things to liek about blogging - it's like my own personal little nagging consciousness "get soemthign done, take some pictures" ... I also enjoy meeting a few special people that will come by my blog time and time again, and I can ask them all kind of stupid questions and get a Christmas card from them ...

  131. I too have discovered that blogging helps keep me motivated to get projects done so I have something to write about :) It also encourages me to take lots of pictures of what is going on around me. It's been a lot of fun to review those pictures from 2013.
