One Giant Leap Into Blogging

I have never considered myself much of a writer. Quilter on the other hand, that's me. I have followed modern quilting blogs for years and have been so inspired by the creativity that all of these lovely people from all over the world share with each other. I never considered blogging myself until recently. I wondered, "Could keep up with it?" Maintain the effort that goes into these things, that is.

If nothing else blogs are an AMAZING way to keep a time line of all of the work you have done and projects you have created. Its like an online scrapbook of your personal creative history. Not to mention getting to see (and then obviously needing) the beautiful fabric that is constantly featured.

I will admit, I have a fabric problem.

But really, who doesn't? My goal is to find a reason to use it, to actually get the courage to cut it all. There are always those pieces that you just cant cut. For me, it's Amy Butler's Lotus Wallflowers. Particularly the mustard one. I will have to find the 'perfect' project to ever get up the nerve to cut that one.

I have no fabulous pictures to share currently as I have never had a reason to be too photographic with my quilts. I do however, have a picture of one of the blocks of my Single Girl Quilt. I did the quilt along that was hosted by a few bloggers on Flickr. It was so fun. 200 people all making the same thing with their own unique twists. Talk about inspiring. The pattern is by Denyse Schmidt and I used a lot of her fabric from the Hope Valley line with some solids intermixed. The quilt top is done, I just have to actually quilt the quilt. I am thinking straight line quilting, but we will see.

Not sure what this blog will end up being, but we will see. The plunge has been taken. Here goes nothing!
