Selfish sewing plus changes for Hoppi Quilts

So you may have noticed my new button on the right side of the blog. Selfish Sewing Week is coming September 2013 and I am super excited.

 During this week I will most likely be finishing up decorations and our guest book quilt for our wedding, which we've decided to move up a whole year! That's right folks, May 10, 2014 I will be Mrs. Hatton! I can't wait, can you tell???

 So here's the deal with the changes to the blog. I need to be more motivated to quilt and blog, so I'm making some theme days to share with you, my readers! They are as follows:

Tutorial Tuesday: At least one Tuesday a month I will be posting a tutorial of some sort. Quilting,    sewing, crafts, and even cooking! This Tuesday there will be a tutorial on these awesome blocks!

Wedding Wednesday: On Wednesdays I will share with you the progress of my upcoming wedding! The entire wedding is going to be DIY so I will share my linens, center pieces, and decorations and how I made them! 

Finish/FMQ Friday: Over the next few weeks I will be finishing a lot of projects, as well as doing a lot of FMQ (free motion quilting). So I will share with you what it is I have finished. Today, even though it's Sunday, I will share the ring barer pillows I made for a friend of a friend who is getting married in August. 

Anything goes Sunday: On Sunday's I'll write whatever comes to mind! It may not have to do with quilting, but will still be a fun read!

I have also recently been experiencing technical problems with blogger, and will be switching from blogger over to my own platform. This will be quite a long process as I already began the switch two weeks ago and am no where near a quarter finished! You will be able to find my blog at under the blog tab!

Today I linked up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop.

I'm so excited about all these awesome changes, and I hope you are too! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 

Quilt on,


  1. The pillows are the best! Yay for moving up the wedding! Can't wait to see the newer blog!

    1. Thanks, Suravi! I can't wait to share my big day with you!

  2. Selfish sewing week, sounds interesting. I agree about the wedding. If you're gonna do it, why wait? Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

  3. Wow - that's a lot of changes! Good luck with the switch over and remember - don't let your blogging schedule run your life! It can get overwhelming if you feel like you have to post a certain number of times a week....

    Whoop whoop for a moved up wedding date!!

  4. Neat! I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of wedding stuff you make. I do expect something totally nerdy by the by....

    Platform changes are hard, but totally worth it. It's really working out for me, but is a TON of work in the background. I've finally worked out my local dev environment so I expect it to be EVEN more work customizing it. :)

    Can't wait to see it all come together!

    1. Haha, I don't know how nerdy we're going, you may be disappointed. We're having a super nerdfest honeymoon in Japan though ;)

      The change is a bit rough, but I'll get it figured out soon enough. I've been having a lot of issues with blogger and after what happened with you I don't even want to use them any more!


Comments are much appreciated, I love to hear from you!
