Well, this post was supposed to be my 100th post, but somehow I ended up counting wrong, so this is my celebratory 101st!!!!
I started this blog in December of last year after talking to my friend Anita about her blog. At the time I was very reticent about whether or not I wanted to do this, but decided to give it a try. I am SO glad that I did step into the blogosphere as I have learned so many things…..
One of the first blogs that I found was Bonnie Hunter and Quiltville.com. Bonnie is the queen of scrap quilting and has a wonderful Scrap Saver system. After reading her website, I have now completely organized ALL of my scraps….no more boxes, baskets or bags of unusable bits and pieces.
Then, while reading Maggie’s blog, she mentioned a You Tube video about a good method for folding fabric. I used this new method to fold all of my larger cuts of fabric and also those that were multi-colored and wouldn’t fit in a particular color box. As a result, I have used a lot of fabric that I would not have remembered previously.
Both of these ideas have greatly improved my quilting enjoyment in the last few months.
I have found that writing this blog has helped me to focus on the areas that I want to pursue most. I have also enjoyed learning to document my quilting process with photos, and at least one set of these has come in handy while teaching a class.
But, most of all, I have loved and cherished the friendships that have been made (or renewed) during this past nine months. It is such fun to open the blog and have comments from England, Australia, Canada, France (in French no less), and many from here in the US.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE COMMENTED, CHEERED AND ENCOURAGED ME!!!!
AND….as a thank you, I am presenting this Give-Away……
