Tu-Na Quilts: Art with Fabric Blog Hop Starting Monday

The Art with Fabric Blog Hop is starting Monday. My day to post my project is Wednesday so please stop on back to see it then.


You might be wondering what this blog hop is all about. Participating bloggers were invited to produce a quilted/sewn project using a well-known or lesser known work of art as our inspiration piece. You can see the last several years entries here.

The theme this fall was Mother Earth. So what did Tu-Na decide to make for her quilted art piece. You’ll just have to return on Wednesday to see.

Here’s the schedule:

What I Learned Today:

  1. There will be no apple cider days, no aroma of drying apples in our house for weeks, no fresh apple pie, and no fresh applesauce this year. Our apples did not survive the three hail storms we had this summer. There are not many apples on the trees. The few that did survive are very small, misshapen, dented, scabbed, and have other living things inside.
  2. This will be a busy blog week with two posts for the I Wish You a Merry Quilt-A-Long scheduled for Tuesday and the Art with Fiber post on Wednesday. I have not forgotten about the loot posts or the one about The Quilted Ceiling. They will be coming. Maybe even this week!


Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen, Tu-Na Quilts

    Wow.. I went to look at the previous year’s entries. what fabulous pieces. Yes a busy week, for you, I have finished my angel, with some more curly hair added, and Frosty the snowman just has his face to be adorned and arms outstretched.

    Karen I look forward to seeing your inspiration and project. It looks like I will have more blogs to start following based on the list of participants. It amazes me that there are so many quilt blogs that I haven’t seen before and am glad to have this opportunity to start watching them.

    it must be so disappointing not to have your apples this year – how many trees do you have? I have just one fairly new tree but it had a dozen apples on it this year and not one matured due to bugs – I will need to treat the tree for some kind of moth worm – I read up on it now can I get it done at the right time in the early spring – time will tell

    I’m so sorry about the apples. Weather certainly is unpredictable and can ruin crops. I hope next year is better for them so you can enjoy those tastes and smells of fall❤️. This challenge looks interesting. I’m excited to see what you do!
