Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

So on the first of every month, here at lilysquilts.blogpost.com, we have a linky party to show off anything you've made or worked on (or even fabric you've bought) during the previous month.  There is a second linky party to help small blogs meet and connect with other blogs.  You'll find a few new blogs to follow and hopefully build up the network around your blog and gain some new followers too.  



This month has been a month of designing new quilts for me some of which I can show you and some of which are still under wraps.  I designed and finished these two quilts for Oakshott and they will be sold through Oakshott and Oakshott suppliers as quilt kits.  The one above is called Crossroads and is made using a colourshott 10" square pack plus yardage.  This was originally going to be called the hashtag quilt but it turned out that Camille Roskelly had designed a quilt which was as good as identical to this one and called it the hashtag quilt way before this one came into my head so I chose a new name for it.  To find out more about Camille's hashtag quilt, you can sign up to her Craftsy classes here.  The quilt below is called Trade Winds and is made using a Lipari F8 bundle plus some yardage.



This third one was designed for Makower using an upcoming Japanese inspired line called Sakura.


And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab.

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.

Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.
