Guest Host for Anything Goes Mondays - Karen's Quilts, Crows and Cardinals

This week's linkup is hosted by the lovely Karen from Karen's Quilts Crows and Cardinals

She lives in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York (USA) with her husband Cliff and one crazy Yellow Nape Amazon (bird) named "Cayman".   She works full time in the information technology field and she is an avid birdwatcher and swimmer.   

She is a proud grandmother of 8 and all three of her granddaughters have their own sewing machines ;)    

She's been sewing all her life - quilting since 2008 and blogging since 2012.  

Karen loves to applique with cotton and wool and also LOVES to free motion quilt on her domestic...  She's not a big fan of piecing :)  

She has a multi-part needle turn applique tutorial "Teardrops of Love" on her blog, for easy reference, here is Part 1Part 2Part 3 and Part 4.

To date she has published two "recipes" on the Moda Bake Shop website and she would encourage anyone interested in designing and publishing their own patterns to visit the bake shop and submit a proposal. It's a fantastic opportunity!!  Free fabric, free promotion of your blog -- a win, win situation!    

Karen recently introduced her new business "Redbird Quilt Co."  She will be hosting a month of Monday giveaways on her blog with some great prizes, head on over to her blog to read more about it. Here is just some of the awesome items she'll have available during these giveaways, Aurifil, Wool, Moda Fabrics, Patterns etc. 

and just when you thought there can't be more to share...  she will also release her first ever wool applique pattern, it will be available on Craftsy and some local quilt shops.  She's also giving away one printed and one PDF version of her new pattern during this week's link up!  So head on over to Karen's Quilts Crows and Cardinals and start linking up.  I am sure you will enjoy your visit to her blog...
