Do you read very many quilt blogs? I do. I have 146 blogs loaded into my Google Reader account, and every day I read/skim through many of them. It’s a way for me to see what other people are working on, what fabrics people like, and learn new techniques that others generously share. I enjoy the blogging process!
I’ve noticed a trend on quilt blogs lately that has me wiggling in my seat thinking, “NO, please don’t do that!” I should explain.
Michigan Quilts! isn’t just about me and my silly ramblings. It’s about all the quilters in or from the state that make quilting here what it is. So in honor of our quilting past, present and future, Michigan Quilts! is going to share blogging space with some quilters you might know by name… and some you may have never heard of before.
- another Julie
- and several more (but I’m going to leave you hanging on those until another day).
Michigan Quilts! is looking for guest bloggers to “share the space” and their love for quilting right here, on this very page.
I’d love for you to participate if you are interested.
Here is the short list of criteria:
- You are a Michigan quilter… either living here now, or having lived here during a time when you were also a quilter.
- Your entry can be short, medium or long in length, and be about anything you’d like related to quilting… a quilt you’re working on, something quilty, random quilt thoughts, applique, piecing, Fabric Collection Disease, whatever. It’s entirely up to you!
- Your entry needs to include a picture or two (or three, or four, or…) to add pizzazz.
- Your entry may include links can to whatever you’d like them to link to, as long as they are clean, somewhat related to quilting, and family-friendly (duh).
- If you own a quilt business of any kind, I don’t mind if your business is mentioned along with a link to your business website, but that should not be the main focus of your post.
Are you interested? If so, please contact me!
In going through an old scrapbook, I located these two pictures. They are of scrap quilts made in 1985 for my brother Bob.
The log cabin quilt was machine pieced and tied. It’s the only quilt I have tied, and I did not like the process.
I think it’s time he had a new quilt, don’t you?
On a cold, icky winter day, sometimes it’s fun to sit quietly and do crossword puzzles. Here’s a bright, sunny one!
- 1/4 yard green fabric
- 1/4 yard white (or white on white) fabric
