Grow Your Blog

Hello!  Welcome to Good Golly Ginger!  My name is Katie, and I am a long arm quilter and quilt pattern designer.  Once again, for a second year in a row, I am taking part in the Grow Your Blog hop hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.  Thank you Vicki for hosting!

Note: There is a giveaway at the bottom of this post!

For those of you who are new here, I love fabric!  I love thread!  I love quilting! And I love designing patterns!  I also have a fantastic husband and two lovely ginger daughters who are 7 years-old and 3 years-old.  We live happily in Northern California.

I bought my first sewing machine five years ago...watched some videos on youtube, and I was hooked!  I started sewing diaper covers and dresses for my oldest daughter.  Years later, I sewed cloth diapers for my youngest daughter.  About three years ago, I became interested in quilting by watching free motion quilting videos on youtube...hooked again.

My husband and I have fixed up an old HQ-16 long arm quilting machine.  He built a table for it, and I keep adding upgrades to it.  Late last year, I began my long arm quilting business, and it has been wonderful.  I also have begun creating new patterns, and now I have a Craftsy shop too.

I started blogging about one and a half years ago.  I love following all of the inspirational sewing blogs.  At this point, I am so grateful to now have over 600 Bloglovin' followers.  Holy Shmoly!  It's amazing, and it really drives me to share new quilts.
ggg20140410_01
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about me.  I have more quilts and tutorials here and here.  Currently, I am busy working on two new quilts.  I can't wait to share them with you!  You can sign up for email updates on my sidebar to the right, or follow me via Bloglovin'...

  19. As I sit here dreading going out to shovel the 8 or so inches of snow that fell yesterday/last night I am so jealous of how warm and green the pictures of your area look. Not sure if that is what it is like this time of the year there but anywhere that looks warm and green is tempting as we prepare for 24-36 inches of snow on Tuesday. Here's hoping he power stays on so I can be all cozy ans sew. :-)

  142. Thanks for sharing your bio, I've been a follower for a while. I can't believe how much you've accomplished in such a short time. I'm so envious of the color of your's and your daughter's hair color, it's just so beautiful. My mother and mother-in-law both had auburn hair and my husband was white blond as a baby, I prayed when my son was born, that he would have hair in some shade of red but it didn't happen. Love your blog name. ;-> Toni Anne
