Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share what you’ve been working on!
First let me tell you what I've been up to
On Thursday, I left for a quilt retreat with my fellow quilters in the Quilters Guild of Indianapolis. I’ll post more photos soon, but here’s a quick shot of the set up. We even had a quilt store there in case we wanted to do any shopping!
On Saturday, I showed off my September Island Batik challenge quilt! This month the challenge was to use a new BOB AccuQuilt GO! die we’d been sent to make a child’s quilt. I received the Spider Web die and make this cute spider quilt.
On Tuesday, I was proud to announce a new blog hop by my Partners in Design. This isn’t a quilt along, and you can make whatever you have time to. It’s our gift to you! Click here to learn more.
Well that was my week!
Now let's see who made this week's feature
The Once Upon a Story blog hop by Marian @ Seams to be Sew continued this week with additional linkups. Boy are they cute!
Each blog featured a block inspired by a fairy tale. Click the photos to visit each blog and see the wonderful quilts inspired by children’s fables.
Alison @ Little Bunny Quilts shared this wonderful table runner. The backing is pieced and allowed her to quilt as you go! Such an awesome idea.
Vasudha @ Storied Quilts shared her Wavy Imelda quilt. This is a charity quilt done one step at a time by her quilt guild. The charity group selects a pattern and kits the quilts, then a member picks up a kit and makes the blocks, then someone else puts the blocks together into a top and so on until the quilt is done. That way, each person can do what they have time to do and more charity quilts get done! Love this idea.
Finally, Gail @ Quilting Gail shared some zippered bags she’d sewn, and a sweet video of her elderly cousin singing an old song about quilting. This is not to be missed, so be sure to visit her blog to see it yourself.
Like last week, we had a lot of people link up for the first time to our Wednesday Wait Loss family. Please welcome Canada @ Stitchinat Home, Beatrice @ Pumpkin Patch, Debra @ Turning My Heart Quilts, and Beth @ Words & Stitches by visiting their blogs and leaving a nice comment.
In addition, Beth @ Words & Stitches has suffered an unbearable loss recently and I know she’d love your kind words and support so please visit and welcome her to our little family.
Welcome ladies! I hope you’ll continue to share your quilt projects with us.
Congratulations everyone! Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs or to simply print out and wear with pride! Thank you for supporting my blog!
Time to link up!
Now it’s your turn to link up your works in progress and recently completed quilts! Here are some quick reminders about the linky party:
By linking up, you give me permission to grab a photo or two to share here on Wednesday Wait Loss.
This linky is all about encouragement, so please visit a few of the links and leave a comment.
If you’re uploading a photo from your phone/computer, leave a comment below that explains your project. And for the rest of us, please reply to a few of these comments leaving words of encouragement for a quick finish.
Please link back to my post somewhere in your blog post or use @inquiringquilter and #wedwaitloss to tag me in your Instagram/Flickr post.
If you link a photo from Facebook, please mention @InquiringQuilter and my Wednesday Wait Loss.
I’m not sure how to link up!
Need help? Click the Wednesday Wait Loss tab above to get step by step instructions on what to do. You can link up a blog post, a photo from Flickr, Instagram, or Facebook, or a photo direct from your cell phone provided it is low resolution.
If you are linking up from your phone or computer and not a blog post, you may be asked to leave a website address. If that happens, here are a few you can use.
Don’t be frustrated! If you can’t get linked up even after reading the instructions on my Wednesday Wait Loss tab, simply send me your images via email and I’ll add them manually.
Our next giveaway!
Our next giveaway is two weeks, and I’d like to celebrate my anniversary by featuring wedding quilts and quilts that celebrate love.
So dig through your quilts and prepare your stories that tell us why your quilt means love to you. I can’t wait to hear your stories!
