Friendly Friday- Beth of Love Laugh Quilt

It's Friday,  Boy do the weeks fly by!! Goes to show we must be having fun!
This week we're featuring Beth from Love Laugh Quilt. Beth is a quilting super woman. She makes beautiful quilts at the speed of light, leaps mountains of fabric in a single jump and blogs almost every day. Her work is  sometimes wonky or liberated , sometimes traditional and it is always beautiful. 
It was Beth who inspired my love my house blocks when she hosted a house block swap/giveaway a few years ago. She put a call out for house blocks which she then bundled up and gave to various lucky winners.  (Karen of Sewing Tales from last weeks Friendly Friday was one of the winners!) I didn't win but I really enjoyed making some blocks and watching all the house blocks flood in from around the world. I loved how different each block was even though it was the same theme. Ever since I've always kept an eye out for house blocks of all types.

Enough of me, Time to let Beth have a chat...



"I've been sewing since I was a little girl. I began making dresses for the dolls and then joined 4-H where we learned to sew clothing for ourselves. I also took sewing classes in school.  Sewing is  very practical thing to know how to do. I've always been able to make new curtains for the house and little pillows for the sofa.  I've been quilting non-stop for about 5 years now. Everyone I'm related to has a quilt!!!
I love giving quilts away and I LOVE creating.  There are TWO quilters that live inside of me. The one that wants to give a simple quilt to show I care....and the one that wants to spend the WHOLE day making an art quilt.....JUST because!
I use two machines. I have a JUKI that I love using to quilt my quilts and I sometimes use a featherweight."









"Your little house block was fun to make using scraps from this and that!  Hope you enjoy the happy colors!"

   Beth, I love this gorgeous house!!! Such a wonderful assortment of fabrics,  the stitching on the window, the button door handle...

... and the sparkly sparks showing that there is a warm welcoming fire in the hearth.


 If you've never visited Beth's blog Love Laugh Quilt then I can highly recommend making a nice cup of tea and having a good read of her enjoyable posts. They always make me want to run to my sewing room and get sewing. 

Super fun weekend to everyone!!

  19. Ditto what Nifty said ( I always say that because Nifty says the nicest things :0))
    But honestly Beth makes and gives away so many quilts and blocks, gathers blocks from us bloggers and makes them into quilts for donation and has her annual house block giveaway.....one of these years I'm gonna win :0). but even if I don't Beth makes it all fun for us.

    And how does she do it all with kids at home!

    Thanks for spotlighting my blog friend Beth and Happy Sewing
