Quilting Square One

Quilting Square One

I am Canadian. I am a constant quilter. I took my first quilting class in 1992 and I haven’t taken a break since. I have a longarm business, Keeping it Simple Quilts. The first blog I visited was “365 days of quilting”, then I started blog hopping. Inspiration followed in heaps, and I started my own blog in 2010… I love to keep track of all my life here, where quilting is a really BIG DEAL….. I thank everyone for their great ideas, to inspire others would bring it full circle and make me very happy. -Pam


My blog is a place where I share my passion for paper crafting! I was introduced to card making 4 yrs ago by my sister Terri. I just love how happy people are when they receive a card made especially for them! I am a very social person and love the connections I make with people that share the same craft as I do! It’s a beautiful world out there full of creative people! -Patti

All About Applique

I’ve been a quilter for nearly 20 years, and an appliqué enthusiast for just as long! That’s right, I was an appliqué from the get-go, and when I got into the professional side of things I naturally gravitated towards appliqué as a design focus. I write a blog devoted to appliqué — any kind — at My two favorite methods are back-basting hand appliqué and raw-edge fusible machine appliqué. There are a gazillion more ways to go about it, and they’re all good! Over at All About Appliqué you’ll find tons of information about all sorts of quilting appliqué. Have fun exploring the Categories and Keyword Search functions to find articles, photo tutorials, links to designers, etc. A great big playground for appliqué enthusiasts or anyone looking for more information on the subject! -Kay

Silver Lily Sews and Stuff

For me blogging my quilts and my crafts is a way to share in this amazing creative pool of artistry and support that is the crafting blogosphere. I love skipping through a list of my favorite quilters, knitters, crafters…artists and the way it inspires me. And adding my little bit of artistry gives me a sense of accomplishment and comradery. From time to time I like to share a little tutorial of something I worked out and think others might enjoy doing as well but mostly it’s a place to share what I’m working on and what is inspiring me in hopes that maybe it will inspire my sweet bloggy friends that stop by to read. -Tyra

Ink Blots by TRD

I enjoy all types of crafting, but on my blog {Ink Blots by TRD} I mainly focus on paper crafting. I enjoy using my paper crafting supplies to make cards, home decor, gifts, and more – and I would love to have you stop on by! -Tifany

A Musing to Create

My scrapbooking blog could be described as a place to come for inspiration in documenting your every day life through scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking as a creative outlet so I often try to incorporate new techniques when I’m creating my projects. Some of my favorite things to include are stitching and inks. I often post little how-to’s and tips for learning to incorporate those things into your own projects. -Leah

If you have all sorts of paper scraps and other items for scrapbooking and card making, then organizing them will make your life a whole lot easier. Stackable filing boxes are a great way to separate and organize all your materials. You can organize them by color, material, size, or any other way you desire. Instead of having all your materials thrown into a big box, these stackable filing boxes let you keep them divided any way you wish. And since they are stackable, they will fit neatly wherever you want them to go. Happy crafting!
