For example there is Debbie from A Quilter's Table - a perfect example of an online quilt blogging friend who has slowly crept into my daily consciousness with her witty prose and her amazing creations. Although we may never meet (I sure hope we do!) in person, I so enjoy the almost instant feed back if I have a question or a photo to share with her.
Then there is Zina who I met through the Goodie Swap 2011 - she made me these for the swap:
|Just love that bag...I used it last night!|
My last example brings me to my best bud in my daily life. She is going through a divorce right now and one of the things she told me she wanted was a quilt for her bed as her soon to be ex never liked quilts. So now her mother and I are working on making her a quilt for her bed. Love the idea of making my best bud's life a little better with a quilt.
On to the WIP's - what I am no longer working on:
|Supernova - finished|
The T-Shirt Quilt - shirts sent to me by my cousin in Maryland. Shirts cut out and 1/2 are now backed by interfacing.
Quilt top for my Best Bud - I'm only doing 1/2 of the blocks for this quilt top and then will hand them off to her mother to finish.
Lastly, the Giveaway:
I've just hit 50 followers (actually 51 now!) so to celebrate I'm giving away a $50.00 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop for starting me down this wonderful quilting path that my life is now on. Their ad Martha Stewart Magazine 2 1/2 years ago began my now love of quilting so they deserve all the credit/blame. :)
To enter in the giveaway please leave a comment telling me what got you started down your crafty/quilting path. Was it a family member, a friend, a magazine, a blog? You know how I got started so tell me how you did. Make sure I can get in touch with you. *The Giveaway is now closed as of Thursday, October 13th at midnight.*
I'm linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced so please go on over a check out what other's have on their WIP lists for today.
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday,
