    I finally sat down to relax after a busy Ky Derby weekend. What fun I had traveling the blogs tonight. How inspiring all of them were to begin a new project. I even found a few patterns to order!! I have been quilting for 40 years and sewing even longer. I put on my happy pants, and pick out happy fabric to create with. Best therapy I’ve ever had!! Thanks, keep inspiring.

  16. Bev Gunn says:

    The blog hops give me an opportunity to meet quilters I would never otherwise find out about and to revisist “old friends” from previous issues. I am now officially on quilt block overload and may recover before the next issue comes out!

  17. Lisa E says:

    I’ve been quilting for about 20 years, but I’m not so prolific. I love the blog tour for the creativity and inspiration it provides. Thank you!

  18. Debbie M says:

    It’s fun to see what unusual things the designers come up with. I love the Sixty Scrap Dash by Mickey Depre! I’ve been sewing since the age of 11 and quilting for about 20 years.

  19. Allison Pogany says:

    I have been “quilting” for almost two years, which is when my mother in law taught me to thread a needle! I am obsessed with all the amazing fabrics! Having barely passed home economics in middle school, I find myself immensely enjoying something I am still not very good at. But I love to see how much I have improved and just today managed to finish a quilt for my daughter! I have loved the blog tour because I learn something new from everyone.
