I’ve caved. I kept saying “Maybe I’ll start a blog.” I learned how to make a quilt from my mother-in-law about two and a half years ago (Thanks, Jo Ellen!)
|My first quilt!|
I considered blogging again, but still felt like I was new to this whole thing. Then I found the amazing things being posted on Flickr and saw even more of the modern quilting community and met even more great people. Still, no blog. So what made me finally cave? Well, for one, a couple weeks ago I was elected as the president of the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild. It seems that the president of a modern quilt guild should have a blog, right? And the other thing is that in February I’m going to Quiltcon in Austin. Yay! And I figured if I have a blog, maybe some other people going to Quiltcon can get to know me a bit and we could meet up! And then my husband said “Start a blog!” So I did.
So…this blog will mostly be about sewing/quilting/crafting.

But I don’t like putting out something that’s important to me without saying anything about what is really most important to me. So I won’t be blogging on Sundays because that’s time for God. And on Mondays I plan to be sharing a little bit from the Bible.
The rest of the week I have plans for showing you my works in progress, sewing techniques I’ve learned or am learning or want to learn. Sometimes maybe I’ll post a funny video or picture or something because I enjoy a good laugh. I’m also thinking of sharing some of my favorite fabrics, flickr pics, maybe some sales I’ve found, and perhaps the occasional giveaway!
Like maybe now! If you made it this far reading my first post, congratulations! I’m going to give away a fat quarter of Echino Decoro Buck to one of you.
Tell me what thing I mentioned I’ll be doing on my blog that you would like to read about the most and I'll enter you in a drawing to win. I'll announce the winner on Friday!
Okay, first blog post written!
