|I have gotten an awesome amount of support for this quilt, thank you!|
But I went, and I even brought along my recently finished F.C. quilt for show and tell. I asked the president if it was okay, and she said sure, then gasped, and then said maybe not to read what it said. Ah...well that's okay. I just told everyone it was in memory of a friend that died from cancer at 27. I think only the ladies at my table actually read it (and half of them were delighted and in awe of the quilting--"Where did you learn to quilt?" "The...internet?").
|My Lone Star quilt got a lot of attention from fellow online quilters!|
So, how I do I showcase my work? Well, I started with just sharing what I made on Facebook with friends and family. But as I started reading more quilting blogs and using people's patterns and tutorials, I wanted to share with more people. So I started a blog--something pretty small and simple to share what I was working and display my finished quilts.
And it stayed pretty small until I started getting involved with various linky parties about a year ago. Since then I've gained a bunch of new followers, found a bunch of amazingly talented bloggers that inspire and encourage me, and I've actually made some quilty friends!
|This quilt went viral on Christmas eve after a nerdy FB page shared it.|
So this blog is where I showcase my work, share ideas, and get amazing feedback. This blog is how I am an active part of the online quilting community. I love this community, and I so appreciate all of my followers and the comments I get! Thank you for being a part of my community!
