Why I blog...

(pattern found here)

I blog for lots of reasons. Here's a few:

1. I love to quilt and teach and share.
2. I love looking at pretty pictures of quilts and want to return the favor.
3. I like meeting other quilters from all over the world.
4. I like getting comments and feedback from people who understand quilting.
5. I like to write and take photos almost as much as I like to quilt.
6. I like knowing people can just google me if they want to find me.
7. Selling my patterns is a thrill...every.single.time.
8. Encouraging people to try something new makes me so happy.
9. Knowing someone is quilting because I encouraged or inspired them is incredibly rewarding.
10. I enjoy it.

I also like to read other blogs.
Thanks for reading this one!


  1. Every one of those points you wrote above comes through in your blog, and is why I like reading what you write. :) Thank you for blogging.

  2. It seems blogging is being replaced by instagram, but I am going to keep on doing it too. I think I like the writing and getting to know other quilters.

  3. I like to blog too, and I like reading what other girls have to say. I get a lot of inspiration from others which can be scary sometimes but for the most part, I get good inspiration.
    Yes, a lot of girls use Instagram, I do too, but nothing will replace blogging with lots of pictures of a good project!

    2. Hi Karen, I've tried a couple of times to send you the link through this reply but my laptop is being cranky! I 've added the link just under the photo or you can visit my shop by clicking on the tab at the top of the blog. Thanks so much!

  5. I think the blogging platform is just better for the details.:)

  6. I'm glad you enjoy writing, 'cuz I enjoy reading. Thank you,

  7. .... and I love reading your blog, so thanks for sharing!
    Sorry I haven't commented much lately. I haven't blogged much neither, because I was not feeling well, but hopefully that flare is getting better now so I think I will come by more often again... Your 10 min. tip from this week was a brilliant one by the way. I've had a sewing-dip lately and couldn't get myself to get behind the sewingmachine. But today, I just told myself to do just 5 minutes of sewing and than would see if it's going okay... It worked, 'cause I sew for a good half hour! Small steps is the answer!!!

  8. Im her to stay in blog land, it is a better vehicle for journaling my work - interesting to read you list

  9. Yay for blogging!! It's great to read your list. My favourite part of blogging is meeting like minded people all over the world!!

  10. I don't do Twitter or Instagram...just blog, read blogs and a wee bit of Pinterest...but blogs win!!!
