Hi and thanks for stopping by while working your way through the Grow Your Blog tour! I haven't attended the party before so hope I don't trip going down the steps or something....
I started my blog late last summer after being a 'blog stalker' for years... I had never even commented on a blog before if you can believe it! I mostly blog about quilts and quilting. After living in Northern Wisconsin all our lives my hubby and I moved to Madison in late 2010 leaving all our friends and family behind. I had been sewing on and off for years but was finding the time to sew a lot! I was spending more time on blogs, pinterist and flickr lurking so I felt it was about time that I join in - and I did! It's great to be able to connect with people who have similar interests. I have learned a ton and have been having a great time getting to know other folks.
Last year I finished 25 quilts. I'm calling 2014 the year of the dog quilt because 8 of those were dog related! The rest of my 2014 quilty finishes can be seen here.
Thankfully I like dogs... enough to include a dog reference in my blog name. The parti in Modern Parti Quilts is a nod to our oldest pup Peanut, aka Mr. P, he's a studly parti-colored cocker spaniel. In just a few days he will be having his 11th anniversary with us; we adopted him January 28 in 2004 when he was a young pup who had been found wandering around in the freezing cold.
One of my favorite accomplishments from 2014 was entering the Bloggers Quilt Festival. My rainbow herringbone quilt was selected as part of the Viewer's Choice!
Anyways, hope you've enjoyed my quick ramblings about my blog! Super big thanks to 2 Bags Full for hosting the Grow your Blog event again!
