I’m joining in Meadow Mist Designs Best of 2017 Linky Party – which simply means I’m highlighting what I think are my best 5 blogs of 2017 here on The Quilt Rambler blog and linking up with other bloggers to help you discover new blogs to enjoy. If this is how you found me, welcome! I hope you will like what you read and hang around for what promises to be an exciting 2018.
I’m Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, and as my name implies I love to “talk quilts.” This year marks the debut of The Quilt Rambler as I rebranded Jan 2017 from Quilts ‘N Kaboodle after 13+ years. My focus this year has been working with Island Batik fabrics as an Island Batik Ambassador and with Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design as a Certified Instructor. It’s been an interesting year as my home and studio were flooded by Hurricane Harvey. Unfortunately post-Harvey clean up has been in competition with the quilt rambles for recent blog posts but 2018 marks another new beginning so I do hope you will join me!

Number One and Number Two:
Drumroll please… by far the most popular post this season was my March Mini Madness, an Island Batik Ambassador project that resulted in a tutorial post complete with a YouTube How to Make a Quilted Composition Notebook Cover.
I guess I should back up a bit…This next blog post explains the excitement of being an Island Batik Ambassador – the anticipation and arrival of my first fabric box (we get two a year). What’s In Your Box?
Another one of my all-time favorite blogs involves both Island Batik and Studio 180 Design – it’s a blog hop with all of the Island Batik Ambassadors! Back to School – Island Batik Blog Hop
As a quilter, I would be lost without my quilting friends. I love my local guild and I love teaching and lecturing at guilds. Here’s just a highlight of why I think it’s important for quilters to gather. 3 Reasons Why You Should Join A Quilting Guild.
But Wait, There’s More!
There is sew much more! I do hope you will decide to subscribe to The Quilt Rambler blog. There’s so much more planned for 2018! Even with reconstruction from Harvey, (which means a new studio redo AGAIN), there will be new quilts, new workshops, and a whole lot of rambling going on!
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, thanking you for joining me with the Best of 2017 Linky Party! Be sure and check out the other participants!
