As you know, the past several weeks I have participated in the 2017 New Quilt Blogger group hosted by Yvonne @ Quilting Jet Girl,Leanne @ She Can Quilt, and Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts. I want to thank these wonderful leaders one more time, especially Leanne who was my Let's Bee Quilt'n Hive leader. I learned so much through this experience. My featured blog can be seen here. The Blog Hop has ended, but I had so much fun meeting and following new bloggers that I decided to try Linky Parties.
Linky Parties are where a blogger links their blog posts and/or quilt photos to another site so that others who have similar interests can easily see them. Typically Linky Parties open on a certain date and have a window of time in which you can link your post. Some of them allow link-ups by Instagram or other social media. I have heard that participating is a great way to meet quilters who have similar interests and to see quilts made by others with similar interests. If you want, you can view the link-ups without linking up your own post. Simply click on the link. In fact, Linky Parties encourage their participants to visit the linked-up sites and provide encouraging comments.
Before participating in a Linky Party, I decided to do some research. I searched blogs that I follow for their favorite Linky Parties, and I searched for them on the internet as well. In particular, I found that Link Parties at Quiltalong.net is a useful resource. This site shows many opportunities and provides links to the parties. You can even submit your own Linky Party if it is not currently listed. After much investigation, I chose three Linky Parties that I want to try first.
I hope that you found this information helpful, and I hope to see your quilts and works in progress at a Linky Party site soon.
I am a quilter who is starting a new adventure. After retiring in May 2016, I became a certified Quilt in a Day Instructor. I am certified to teach workshops using Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. In addition, I am designing my own quilt patterns.
