I have lined up 6 wonderfully talented quilters to join me in sharing a few of their 
Quilting Secrets !

Christine from Quilt Monster in My Closet 
 Today *****Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling****
Barbara from CatPatches
Melissa from Sewbittersweet designs
Sharon from Vroomans Quilts
Sue from Quilt Times
Hayley from Mrs.Pickles Garden (this is me)


Today’s host is Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling. I came across Linda site last year and found her site to be a jackpot for tutorials and inspiration. She is always there with a kind word and encouragement which makes her a great cheerleader.
Linda was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. After marrying, she has lived in west Texas, east Texas, Georgia, and North Carolina, and has recently moved back to the San Antonio area. She has sewn almost all of her life, starting with doll clothes and moved onto quilting in 2002 with the birth of her granddaughter. Being self taught she soon found that appliqué was what she enjoyed most. Linda has a minor in art and a major in elementary education she started selling her patterns locally and online in late 2009.
Some of Linda’s favourite projects she has made are http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=7309493769526175391#editor/target=post;postID=1597902953064736640
Can you find the wolf!
. Linda loves designing quilts with fairy tale and nursery rhyme themes.  “Who’s Been Eating My Porridge?”is another of her favourites http://buzzingandbumbling.blogspot.com/2010/11/christmas-with-three-bears.html

I would like to give a huge Thank you Linda for taking part in the hop and to Chelsey from The Fat Quarter Shop of sponsoring today’s giveaway


The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. 
As the Fat Quarter Shop's reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!As a team, they continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!
