A Lovely Award!

My friend Michaela over at Craft Farm has honored me by choosing me for a "Gorgeous Blog" award! She gave it to me "for reminding me that quilting/sewing with friends is much better". Isn't that sweet? Michaela lives fairly close to me and is one of the few blogging friends I have met in person, too :)

I am supposed to pick 5 people that I would like to give this award to. This is going to be so hard!

1. AccioFabric: Vicki is the one who badgered pushed me into made me encouraged me to start a blog and get on Flickr in the first place :)
2. PaigeAlaine: Paige does the most beautiful long-arm machine quilting I have ever seen, and it is always so inspiring to watch her ideas in action!
3. Summer At Grandma's House: Kris is one of the other bloggy friends I have met in person, and her work is always so bright and fun and inspired!
4. QuiltDad: John always has amazingly modern look blocks. It is fun to have a man's perspective on what is usually considered to be a woman's tradition, and I have learned a lot from John :)
5. I'm Just A Guy Who Quilts: I seriously would love to have the opportunity to go fabric shopping with Ryan sometime! His posts about the things he finds are great... I realize that I might not have even looked at some of the fabrics he chose. As with John, I learn a lot from having the male perspective through Ryan as well!


  1. Thanks for the award!! Also, thanks for the link to PaigeAlaine... I think I know where my quilting bee quilt is going!

  2. Jennie - thanks so much for the award! Your comment gives me goose bumps! You & Vicki opened me up to the world of modern quilting designs and fabrics it has changed my quilting life!

  3. You do have a nice blog! Did you feel the earthquake?
