I am so happy you are here! If you are reading this, you must have navigated your way from my old blog, Fabrics & Flowers or my first site at Color Girl Quilts on Blogspot. Thank you so much for “following” me here, and I hope you will stick around.The new site is bright and new and I am really excited about it. However, I am still wading through older posts to fix “broken” links, so if you are surfing around and find a link that doesn’t work, please bear with me.
If you have been following my blog, you will notice that Color Girl has a few new features: you can purchase and download my pdf patterns right here on the site as well as visit related links for tutorials or quilt-along inspiration. This site also has some handy menu options that make it really easy to find what interest you. For tutorials, hover over the tab at the top of this page and you will see all of the options. I am also adding “categories” to all my blog posts, so when you click on a category, it will take you to a page that has all the posts in that category. Pretty nifty, yes?
Would you do me a favor? visit some of my posts on projects and tutorials and “Pin” your heart out. If you add pictures from this site to your Pinterest boards, you can help me spread the word about my move from Fabrics & Flowers and more people will come visit.
To celebrate the new website, I have a current copy of the magazine “Modern Patchwork” to give away to one reader.
Besides being a great magazine, this issue is special because it contains a quilt that I designed and made! I am really proud of this, my first published quilt. You can read more about that Here.
Of course, there are lots more neat projects, too. I like this little zipper pouch with the patchwork. I thought it would be fun to make one where the pieced part is a letter, like an initial or monogram, as a gift for someone.
These are my favorite quilts: (seriously, this magazine is so well done and the projects so nice)
If you would like to win a copy of this magazine (chock full of projects besides the ones I showed you). Be among the first to leave me a comment on my new blog! If you live outside the United States, please let me know in your comment. International visitors can win a copy of your choice of any Color Girl quilting pattern. (apologies, shipping cost is just not worth it for a magazine)
If you would like another chance to win, share something (a post, a picture, one of my patterns you are working on, etc) from colorgirlquilts.com on your favorite social network such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Leave a second comment telling me how you shared. I will choose a winner on Sunday.
I am thrilled to be in my new space! Thanks for all the encouraging words, and for patience as I get it all perfected,
