During April and May, we will be getting to know the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers better through a series of blog hops. The group of new bloggers have been connecting since March 1 using Slack to share ideas about blogging and to learn tips and tricks to make blogging more fun for everyone. The bloggers were recently “sorted” into 3 hives hosted by Leanne @she can quilt, Beth @Cooking Up Quilts, and me!
Each week during the blog hop, I will be highlighting 4-5 of the bloggers in my hive. My hive is calling themselves the Blooming Quilters and they made an awesome button!
I often say that I am passionate about the online quilting community. As a co-host of this blog hop, I am very excited to be able to introduce my readers to a group of new quilting bloggers and help welcome them warmly. Many thanks to all of you who will take the time to get acquainted with the newest members in our midst.
In no particular order, the Blooming Quilters bloggers are:
- Amandy @Mommy’s Projects
- Bobbi @Snowy Days Quilting
- Fi @living cloth
- Jennifer @Inquiring Quilter
- Laura @Slice of Pi Quilts
- Anita @Domestic Felicity ~
- Cate @Chaos Theory Quilting
- Liz @My Sew Called Life
- Olusola @Alice Samuel’s Quilt Co.
- Karen @Tu-Na Quilts, Travels, and Eats
- Kathleen @Kathleen McMusing

- Sarah @Designs by Sarah J
- Tami @Thrift Shop Commando
- Danette @Nettie Sews
- Debbie @Quilt Knowlogy

While we are putting the finishing touches on preparations for the blog hop, which will include weekly giveaways from our generous sponsors (yes, that is 11-12 giveaways for each week of the blog hop!), check out this great new advice post from a seasoned veteran (I am collecting all of these posts in the Tutorials > Advice for New Bloggers tab up above):

Yvonne, I can access the groups blogs from the links on this page but cannot find them to follow through my Feedly account. Perhaps this would be something to add?
Beautiful button – looking forward to getting to know Blooming Quilters over the next few weeks!
Have fun new bloggers!! Don’t be afraid to ask questions…any question! Good luck Yvonne!
So many new quilting blogs! I recognize a few of my quilty friends, but I can’t wait to make more friends and visit all the new ones. It was such a great experience last year and it will be fun to follow this year’s hop.
