Mom Got her Kindle Cover!

It fits just fine!  Dad took pictures of it to show me.  I love this pattern.

Free Pattern Friday – Camera Accessory Edition

I was going to skip Free Pattern Friday this week as I hadn’t seen anything interesting but I happened upon this very nice pattern to make a customized DSLR Camera Bag!  Sewing Level:  Intermediate  (you can remove some of the inside pockets and the zipper to make it more beginner friendly according to the pattern creator) I may take a stab at this before I go on my cruise.  I have a nice camera backpack to tote everything around in {Read More}

I’m becoming a swap addict I think. I’m hosting a new block swap for the members of the Big Tent Quiltcast Supergroup folks (anyone that listens to quilting podcasts can join).

Please join us and I highly encourage you {Read More}

Potentially Podcasting and Quilting on a Budget

5346527362_da69d40679

I’ve toyed with the idea of doing my own podcast for a few months but a few things have stopped me each time the thought comes up. One being the cost. Hosting a popular podcast can get expensive depending on the number of listeners you have. Paid hosting at most places start around $9 a month. $9 can buy a nice yard of fabric or a charm pack. $108 yearly can certainly pay for a lot of quilting notions. I’m {Read More}

Fresh Start and a Quilting Class in the New Year

Finally!  I had my husband look at the issue and he fixed it in less than 5 minutes.  The e-mail I got that was supposed to help from GoDaddy was totally wrong.   Anyway – I’m now Katie’s Quilting Corner officially.  My old blogger address will redirect you automatically so no need to change anything if you’ve got links or what have you.  Now I need to design some sort of logo or banner to use.     I took {Read More}

The Fun of a Custom Domain & Minor Quilty Update

5328885371_36e142b12d

Let me preface this by saying that I’m fairly tech savvy and I’ve worked with personal websites before thorough custom hosting so I’m not a complete moron.    Monday I had the bright idea to go ahead and purchase a custom domain.  I’ve been wanting one for a while, something easy to remember that would point to my blog/etsy etc and get rid of the blogspot subdomain.  Blogger makes this easy by offering a service to purchase a custom domain.  {Read More}

Lists, Projects & Classes

Churn_Dash_Quilt_Block

My blog is currently switching domains which is why if you are trying to get to old posts you might be getting error messages.  Should be finished in a few days.  I’m hoping everything will be working correctly then and redirecting folks from the old address to the new one. My blog is changing names!  Thus, the domain change too.  I’ve renamed it to “Katie’s Quilting Corner” which I think is more personal to me.  I purchased www.katiesquiltingcorner.com and also {Read More}
