Today is Day 2 in the Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop at Susie's Sunroom!
Susie had the positively brilliant idea of choosing a lineup of "superstar quilters" to create their own versions of her Simply Striped Pillow and guest post about it on her blog. (I find that very flattering, because one of them is moi! LOL) If you haven't met Susie yet, I'll tell you, she is simply wonderful and you should get right over there and introduce yourself!
Do you like to see one pattern, interpreted in many different creative styles? I sure do! The Simply Striped Pillow is a fun pattern to play with and also the perfect springboard for adding your own inspired touches. I jokingly asked Susie "What if two of us show up at the prom wearing the same dress?" But you just KNOW that isn't going to happen - especially with seven very diverse designers!
Below is the lineup for the week. If you haven't visited yet, start off with day one! You'll want to see Elaine's sophisticated pillow and Susie is also having a Giveaway for some lovely fabric and an easy angle ruler (the latest, greatest thing)! The giveaway lasts the whole week so be sure to enter for a chance to win!

Did you notice my pup up at the top? I've been drawing him for more than 45 years... aack! I feel a little old. I've been trying to come up with a fun blog signature and I think this just might be it! What do you think of it? Should I color him in, or leave him as a line drawing? I'm trying to decide if I should use it in place of my "Push My Buttons" button. It does a pretty good job of reflecting how I feel.
I found the neatest free website: gifmaker.me You can upload a series of images and it will change them into an animated GIF... for FREE! Did you ever make one of those flip books? You know, where you draw something and then on each successive page, you slightly change the drawing so that when the pages are flipped it looks like the drawing is moving? That's basically what this is - only the computerized version and much easier.
Be sure to come back here on Friday! It's my turn in the hop and I'll be guest posting at Susie's Sunroom. I'm so excited - it's my very first guest posting! I'll also be holding a giveaway here at BuzzinBumble and one lucky winner will get to "take home" Susie's Simply Striped Pillow pattern PLUS a brand new copy (you can't have mine!) of Christina Cameli's book "Step-by-Step Free-motion Quilting" I'll be using another pattern from Christina's book on my pillow too!
Until then, thank you for visiting, because I am always happy to see you!
