I would like to welcome you to Vrooman's Quilts . The Header photo is a painting of the farm/house/shop on the hill and yes, our road is called Quilt Lane. You are welcome to read more about Quilt Lane HERE .
I prefer to work small projects that can allow you to play with a new technique, new threads, explore a design. I take part in the Doll Swap Group and a small friends swap and occassionally the Bog Hops at SewWeQuilt.
I do make large quilts from time to time and like to play along with Block of the Month or Sew Alongs or Challenges. I like to keep current activity buttons on my side bar. NO, I do not do all of those, just like to share because there might be something someone else would like.
I do enjoy the NewFO and participating in the Something Old, Something New - and I just tried a new venture for myself.......
There is a page/tab set up for this with explaination. Basically it is to encourage quilters to get out those books we so desperately bought to make that 'must' quilt/project - and now they sit forgotten on the shelf. I see this working with NewFO, Something Old, Doll quilting, etc......... Sew, we can multi-task with one project.
I, also, like to participate in various charity quilting. My Quilt Guild does a number of projects thru the year for local needs, but I have found some on-line projects that I like to contribute to each year.
Get Your Mrs. Claus On (button on side bar) is a wonderful group that makes, collects, and distributes toys to children. I try to send a doll quilt each month. 100 Quilts for Kids and Hands2Help (I add buttons as their new year starts) are dear to me and I try to send a couple thru each organization.
Thank you for visiting and please, take some time to enjoy some of the other participants. Thank you Vicki at -2 Bags Full for organizing this wonderfull concept - there are over 500 participants - phew!!!!! Yes, be sure to thank Vicki!! ** the complete list can be found HERE **
This doesn't look like much unless you are a collector and user of selvedges. I had one gallon zip bag going and it overflowed and ripped, so more was stuffed with it into another zip bag... Yes, there are a lot of selvedge, Moda ties, ribbons, lace, etc.............. This is my give away and open to all - international visitors welcome. You do not need to be a follower, just be sure I have a way to contact you. Due to the number of participating bloggers, Vicki has asked us to keep our give aways open until Feb 15th - to allow everyone to get thru as many as possible. So comments will be open until Feb 15th 10pm (EST) and winner announced and contacted immediately after.
