I am a total newbie to blogging, I just started this blog on 12/30/13. I had been thinking about starting a blog for months. I'm not sure what pushed me over the edge to jump in and actually start blogging but from the minute I started I was hooked! :) So hooked I found I was spending more time in blog land than quilting!! haha I have gotten a little better with finding a balance between blogging and actually spending time quilting. . . I said to myself, self, you need to get a grip and make something because if you don't, you will have nothing to blog about! haha
I blog about making quilts. I never in a million years imagined myself getting into this craft. Heck, I didn't know I had any artistic side that was screaming "LET ME OUT!" I started by making a quilt for our over sized king bed because I was too cheap to buy a custom made comforter. . . Little did I know that I was going to very quickly develop a quilty, fabric, quilt gadget habit! That was 21 quilts ago! It might have been cheaper to buy that custom comforter!! LOL
I don't know that I have found my quilt 'style.' I have always been a bit of a rebel (OK maybe more than a bit...), don't much like rules, can't follow a pattern to save my life and if someone tells me 'you can't do that' - I am totally going to do it just to prove them wrong! LOL I am drawn to modern quilts and love working with batiks. I have been blogging about the process of making current projects with posts about the quilts I made before starting to blog sprinkled between here and there.
I thought it would be fun to share with you a some of my favorite projects to date. If you click on the picture, it will take you to the post describing the process and inspiration and pattern if there is one. Here they are:
I love comments! I read them all and respond by email. If you are so inclined, you can follow my quilty adventure by clicking on the various follow buttons on the side bars or the bloglovin button below. If you want to contact me by email, I can be found at email@example.com.
If you have any suggestions on ways I can improve my blog, add followers (I never thought I would be so interested in how many followers I have but I guess in the end we all want to know that we aren't talking to ourselves. . . that would be crazy right? haha) or just make my blog more user friendly, I would LOVE to hear from you!! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again if you have hung in to the end of this post!! haha
Until next time, keep on quilting!!
