Hi… my name is Cath and I am ex-pat Aussie who is now calling Portland Oregon home.
I have been quilting on and off for many years but now find myself with time to explore and challenge myself. This is my attempt to log my adventure in quilting.
If you want to know a little more check out my post for the Blog Hop…

Hi, my name is Elisabeth and I am executive co-producer and host of Oregon Quilting TV series. the programs are on the web site. Information about where we tape the program is also on the web site. You would be welcome to come and join us anytime. In February, we will be working on blocks for Quilts of Valor following the taping of the TV program.
I noticed you have your very own personalized quilt tags. May I ask where you got them?
I got them on etsy. The link is …<a href="…http://www.etsy.com/listing/102662311/120-custom-printed-fabric-labels-sew-on?ref=v1_other_2
They are not too expensive and you can personalise them. Let me know if the link does not work.
AWESOME!!! The link worked just fine. Thanks a bunch. :o)
I have nominated your blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. Visit my blog on Friday, February 8, 2013 for details. You may choose not to accept the award. If you choose not to, just know that I enjoy reading your blog and find it to be a valuable resource. :o)
Cindy, thanks for the nomination. I love the idea of the Award and will pass on the love.
Hi Cath, I appreciate your visit to Sew Fresh Quilts and for leaving a comment about my Flowers in the Sun quilt. Just wanted to let you know that you are a no-reply blogger. So, I could not send you a reply through email.
I do lots of fiber arts stuff but always found quilting boring, not to mention my mom has been a quilter my whole life so I never felt the need to quilt, but you make it look so fun I may try it again! Thanks for the like and I look forward to reading your blog!
I’m the current chair for lectures and workshops for Emerald Valley Quilters in Eugene, OR and I’m interested in having you visit our guild. Here’s our site http://members.efn.org/~evq/
I see you were at the Modern Quilt Guild in Portland. Do you visit others? Would you please send me your fee schedule?
Hi, just letting you know I’ve nominated you for a Wonderful Team Member Readership Award (great name hey!) I’ve put a link to your blog on my post, don’t feel obliged to accept! Amy
, thanks for stopping by my blog, addicted-to-fabric.blogspot.com. I love your choice of fabrics! You’re my kind of quilter! I have decided life is too short to make quilts with fabrics that don’t excite me!
I absolutely agree about using fabric you love. Though I occasional enjoy the challenge of making something from fabric I would not usually use (always mixed in with my faves). Sometimes it works. Sometimes it falls a little flat.
I saw your blog on the Portland Modern Quilt Guild blog roll…I absolutely love the print and color choices in your quilts. They’re all so unique! You have a great eye.
Thanks Lauren. I love playing with colour.
Hi CathI cannot reply to your comment about the tote bag swap as you show up as a no repl blogger for me. EEEEK! I just finished my tote bag. Using Elizabeth Hartman’s pattern worked really well. You can do it!!! Cathy @ blueberry patch
I’ve just nominated you for the Liebster award! Go and have a look!
Cath – What’s your email address so I can put you in my address book. I always love your comments but I can’t email you back!

Thanks for the good reads!
Dear BB… thanks so much for the honor but I no longer meet the under 200 followers criteria. I really appreciate the vote of confidence in my blog and am flattered you thought of me.
Silly me, I sent that before I learned how to even check such things! I do so enjoy your blog. Thanks for the message back.
I was really chuffed to get your note. It is so nice to be recognized, I have not been doing this for to long and am still learning so much. Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Love Foxey! I’m a great fan of paper piecing, so portable, so soothing, so scrap friendly. And I love your blog. Going to follow you now and steal all your ideas….
Thanks for the compliment. I really do love that I am so inspired by what I see online and that others are inspired by what I make. It is one of the fabulous things about quilting. It is truly a creative dialogue.
You’ve been nominated for a Sunshine Award at http://www.bulgingbuttons.wordpress.com! Thanks for being so inspirational.

Lisa. I would love to have my Starry Night quilt in the fatquarterly magazine. Thank you for reaching out. It is still a wip as I am still working out how I want to quilt it. Cath
Hi Cath! Sorry you have misunderstood me I am making a mini quilt using your starry night pattern and want to put it into the paper pieced fat quarterly issue.

Hi, I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. http://di5lexi.wordpress.com/2014/11/25/awarded-one-lovely-blog/
I absolutely love your quilt blocks!
Cath: I’m with you. I get bored, so I start playing with my scraps. Here’s my latest creative block busting effort. https://storiesfromthehilldotcom.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/img_19901.jpg
I’m trying to obsess about color and just let it happen!
Nice. I like the square in square block with all the scraps.
This is Penny B., the drop-in at the March charity quilt at MD. I wasn’t able to attend the March meeting but will try to make the April or May meeting. I’m really looking forward to meeting you again and other members of the guild! Your work is fab! Penny
