I'd like to start out, by thanking Benita for inviting me to join in, on her
"Meet and Greet".
As online bloggers, we love finding new friends with like interests.
There is just so many times I can share my excitement about a new project
with my hubby, who really doesn't care one bit about them!
Anyone else feel my pain?
My name is Joan and I'm the head of the herd, at "MooseStashQuilting".
You'll find loads of "Moose" running around here.
These boys keep my out of trouble most days.
My blog name is a combination of my love for these guys and my huge piles,
(moose size you could say)
of stash I've accumulated over the years.
It's true, the more you stitch, the bigger your stash grows.
There is absolutely no logic to it, but it happens.
I'm a fusible applique junkie.
While I appreciate the time and talent of needle turn, it's not for me.
I've got too many project in this lifetime to complete.
"International Sun Bonnet Sue"
was completed in 2013 and was my first big undertaking in fusible applique.
It is done in the "Quilt As You Go" method.
You can see much more of this quilt with closeups up each block
She's my most popular pin on "Pinterest".
I do love a good stash buster. It's a great way for me to clean out those bits and pieces that I just can't "Bear" to throw away. I usually do one "biggie" a year,
just to keep control of things.
The bear quilt wasn't really a stash buster, but there was some intense piecing involved, and I love it!
I'm a blog hop-aholic...a big ole hop-head
Nothing inspires me more than getting a theme and digging thru my pile of patterns
and stash, to find the perfect project.
It's really what keeps me stitching every day.
Oh, and the friends I have made...well, they are just icing on the cake!
I'm a part of the designs team for the "Sew Incredibly Crazy" free BOM's.
There are 4 talented designers and myself...the one who doesn't get the EQ program
and would much rather draw out her pattern by hand than take the time to learn anything!
What can I say...I'm honest!
Oh...and I've got a little secret...next month is my block.
I'm really excited about it...you won't want to miss it.
My favorite part of this crazy quilting hobby, is being an
The spoil us with their beautiful fabrics, and challenge us with monthly themes. It's a great way to show off our projects and share their new lines of fabric.
The inspiration is over the top, with this talented group of Ambassadors.
I am also a Halloween A-Holic!
Gheez, my vises are stacking up here, aren't they?
I have to wrap this up, with my "all time" favorite project...
...a real peek inside of my crazy sense of humor!
What can I say...other than 2013 was the year that really set me on my road.
My goal is to inspire and entertain you,
down this crazy quilting road, we all love to travel.
