Jill……Starting a quilting blog has been technologically challenging: good brain exercise. We’re followers of a few other blogs and enjoy both the artistic and sometimes personal statements. There is sometimes a connection, identity with certain life happenings and processes. So we’ll try to keep this focused on design with brief connections to our personal lives. Perhaps you’ll relate (or not).
The last couple of weeks have been full of the personal processes. Both Marny’s and my youngest have each graduated and moved really far away. I turned 60. For me, the numbers are a reflection of fewer years ahead than behind! The time is NOW to make a design statement.
We love helping customers with fabric selection. At the Quilting Connection, we sell a lot of kits but like to encourage more personal choices, making one- of-a-kind quilts. This site will encourage that same individuality. We hope that ideas presented here allow you to discover your own vision.
So as we search for our vision, we ask you to join in the process. We would like for this site to be interactive. Next week, we will inform you on how to become “friends” and publish your photos on Flickr. (Just in case you don’t know.) Our partnership involves discipline, just like exercise and healthy eating. Find a buddy and meet as often as you can: encourage and offer constructive comments.
Challenge: We’re searching for definitions of both MODERN and CONTEMPORARY. Please don’t look it up in the dictionary (we’ve already done that)! What defines these for you personally? Share your ideas. We will be giving away a fat quarter bundle of Robert Kaufman’s organic Free To Grow. To enter our giveaway, make comments to this post within the next two weeks. We will announce the winner on our June 29 post. (For those who don’t know how to post comments, we will give the instructions next week.)
Until next Tuesday!
