GROW YOUR BLOG hop - Meadow Mist Designs

Welcome to the Meadow Mist Designs stop on the
Grow Your Blog party
 
2 Bags Full
 


First off I want to thank Vicki of 2 Bags Full for organizing this blog hop, she has said that there are over 500 blogs taking part in this hop, it has been an incredible amount of work setting this up.

For those who are new here, here is a little about myself (for those that are returning, thank you!).

My name is Cheryl and I am a chemical engineer/patent agent by day, a quilter at night, a mom to a 6 year old son and 3 year old daughter, and a wife. I love designing quilt patterns, writing quilt instructions, and doing quilty math to combine my quilting skills with my engineering and technical writing backgrounds. 


Here is a little collage of some finishes from the past year:

 
For 2014, I am planning of starting a blog series on how to design quilts on Microsoft PowerPoint which is surprising versatile and do almost everything EQ7 can.

I hope that you'll take a look around and decide to follow my blog and join me on my quilting adventures!

Now onto the Giveaway:

This giveaway is for a bundle of my three (3) most popular digital pdf quilt patterns:  On a "Jelly" Roll, Charming, and The Quilt in the Hat.  This giveaway is open to everyone, anywhere in the world.  The patterns will be e-mailed to the winner.



To enter:

(1)  Leave a comment, any comment.  If you would like a topic to comment on, let me know if you would be interested in how to design quilt patterns using Microsoft PowerPoint.

(2) Followers (new and old) get a second entry, leave a separate comment letting me know how you follow.

Thank you all so much!!

(Note:  On normal posts I try to reply to each and every comment, but on giveaway posts having so many comments it is difficult to respond to each one)

** Note:  If you decide to follow my blog, I also have a followers only thank you giveaway (A fat eighth bundle of 10 prints from the Shelburne Falls Collection from Denyse Schmidt) going on until the 28th you can enter here.**

  27. Hi Cheryl! Love the mosaic of your fabulous projects from the past year (many of which are your own clever designs... cheer! cheer!). Guess what? I'm (finally) gathering my fabrics to make your On a Jelly Roll pattern - can't wait to start this fun quilt.
    Wow - that is awesome! I would love to see how you use Powerpoint for designing.

  30. I would love to be able to know how to design and write a pattern but first you would probably have to tell me what power point is and explain for 6 months or so how to use it.

  31. Hi, I'm more of paper and pencil girl when I design / change a pattern. I find it easier and quicker than using my computer.

  34. AND, I am loving EVERYTHING I see here...eye candy, for sure! I don't think there are any better quilt pattern designers out there than the engineers...I had the chance to take a class with John Flynn some years ago - engineer to the MAX. He had the pattern so figured out, there was maybe an inch of fabric left over when I was done cutting - and it went together incredibly. From the looks of things here, you are the same way. Off to look around some more before hitting more of the blogs on my list from the Blog Party - Happy Creative Wednesday - Tanya
