2015 New Quilt Bloggers: Sign Up Now Open

Last year I participated in the 2014 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop hosted by Beth @plum and june. I am so thankful to Beth for facilitating the group discussions and blog hop; I learned so much and met such wonderful women. These women have become my teachers, students, confidants, quilting bee mates, pattern testers, supporters, and most of all my friends. 

In addition to making new friends, the hop was a great way for me to improve my blog and get more involved in the blogging and quilting community. This year, a group of alumni are going to work to host the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop, and I am thrilled to be a part of the mentor team.

Today, I am so excited to announce the details on how to sign up to participate in this year’s 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop!

I am looking forward to meeting all of the new quilt bloggers and learning some new blogging tips!


  1. I am nervous and excited to get this started! I look forward to collaborating with you and learning from this new group of bloggers. :)

  2. This is exciting! I think I really need to sign up and gain some valuable information from all you talented ladies! Thank you!

    Don't be nervous Yvonne!

  3. Yay! So glad I follow you and Yvonne, so I actually get in this year...I often live under a rock you Should be fun, looking forward to learning a lot....and I just signed up. Thank you for hosting!

  4. Hi Cheryl: I'm really interested but don't have a facebook account yet. Do I have to have it before I sign up?

    1. Got the FB account and signed up. I'm super excited and nervous (like Yvonne) Looking forward to learning all I can from the group.

  5. Yay! I'm glad that you, Yvonne, Stephanie, and Terri Ann are helming this effort this year. I was planning on participating, but I think the FB requirement will have me on the sidelines (I can't commit to yet another form of social media, and I take issue with FB in general). Bummer!

  6. I did this a couple of years ago when I had just gotten started with blogging. It is a great way to learn and meet new people. I'll be following along.

  7. I also don't and won't have a facebook account. Won't be able to participate. I had this problem with Craftsy at first too but then later was able to join with email.

  8. I have to say I was hesitant about the whole Facebook thing as well. But I've set up an account and signed up, didn't want to miss out! :0)

  9. I am so excited about this hop! I am finding lots of fun new people to follow!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
