Tu-Na Quilts: Coming soon…2017 New Quilt Bloggers Hop

The 2017 New Quilt Bloggers are busily polishing their blogs and preparing their post. During two weeks in April and two weeks in May, you will be able to get to know them better. There will also be lots of giveaways on our host’s blogs.


The hop is scheduled as follows:

2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop Schedule

  • Blog Hop Week 1 – April 10th
  • Blog Hop Week 2 – April 17th
  • Blog Hop Week 3 – May 1st
  • Blog Hop Week 4 – May 8th

I am part of the Blooming Quilter’s group under the direction of Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl and am scheduled to post an introductory post on May 1st.


We’ve received our assignments and are scheduling our posts. Some of my fellow members of the Blooming Quilters as well as those of the two other groups of new quilt bloggers will be posting during each of those weeks. I will let you know more of the schedule as we go along.

Meet my fellow members of Blooming Quilters.

You can find even more new quilt bloggers on the other co-hosts blogs: Leanne @she can quilt, and Beth @Cooking Up Quilts as well as find the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Sponsors.

On a side note: I’ve been busy with family responsibilities but have sincerely appreciated all of your blog comments and support. As soon as I can, I will post about my March bee blocks and the continuing postage saga. You probably won’t believe it. But then again, maybe you will.

What I’ve Learned Today:

  1. My family is priority number one.
  2. All else pales in comparison.

Question: How do you handle stress? I need some good stress relievers.

    Good for you for putting family first. When you need to destress, take some deep breaths, just stop moving for a few minutes and count all of your blessings! If I was there, i would give you a big hug. Hugs are always good too. 🙂

    Hello Karen – my new leetle friend! *grins* I am going to follow your post setup for the hop. You have set it out so nicely.
    My Mr. is battling serious health issues so I have found reducing all extra “stuff” helps me handle the stress.

    Karen, you don’t want my advice on how to handle the stress. This morning it didn’t work out so well. Ate a whole box of candy. I should have chose the walking instead.

    I am so excited for the blog hop to start. I am up on the second week.

    Exciting stuff as regards the blog hop! That hive button is so pretty. Family over everything for sure. I watch silly TV and sleep when I need to de-stress…most importantly don’t think about any of the things causing you stress just for a bit, not the easiest thing to do I must say. Good luck with everything.

    I certainly agree with your priorities Karen, family comes first with me too. I chose not to do new quilt bloggers this year but I will be reading and supporting. I hope everything is improving and you will be back to normal soon.

    My stress release is spending a little time in my studio. Like Kate from smilesfromkate, I’ll follow along with the new bloggers but opted out as well. Prayers continue for you & your family. Hugs.
