Let's Get Acquainted - Week 1

I am very excited to be part of the 2013 Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop over at Plum and June. There are a whole bunch of new(ish) modern quilt bloggers just waiting to meet you; I'll post a list of their names and the links to their blogs at the bottom of this post.

We've been having a great discussion about what we like in blogs, what we don't like in blogs, and overall just encouraging each other in writing and sharing about what we love (my favourite part!). So many people have said "hey, I know how to do that, I can help you!" when it comes to technical stuff - I have already followed some of the links to some helpful tutorials - good stuff!

I think every single one of us has said there has to be a photo with each post. So here's mine:

Pattern:  Small Plates, from The Practical Guide to Patchwork
Designer: Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!
Fabric: Origins, by Basic Grey for Moda
Size: 68" x 85"
Quilting: Machine quilted by a local quilter in an all-over swirl pattern
Backstory: Made for my daughter's friend who got married awhile back; the girls studied environmental science together at college, hence all the green!

And now, here is the list of everyone participating in this year's Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop. I encourage you to visit these blogs and say hello - some encouraging words would also be really great! The first posts went up yesterday and as I read through them, I am so honoured and humbled to be part of this group:
