Quilt Story

I spend a bit of my time worrying about the social/community aspect of my quilting.  I’m better about it than I used to be but it still nags at me.  Questions like…how much do I “share” my little place on the internet through link ups, social media, etc.  Also…do I blog enough?  Anyway…I’ve talked about all of that here before.  I think it stems from insecurity…the infamous first day of school question…”Will they like me?”

Lately I’ve thrown caution to the wind.  I’ve participated in some link ups and I’m so enjoying the interaction with people and being inspired by their work.  I’m instagramming more although I still tend to forget about it for the most part.  I even added back the social media links on my page, and I’m going to be teaching a class at our local quilt shop.

I also took the plunge and decided to submit a quilt for Quilt Story.  Megan and Heather are talented and generous quilters/bloggers who share their space with other talented quilters through a weekly link up and features.  Lets just say I never really felt like I was good enough to be featured before.  And while I don’t know that that’s changed, I am so pleased that they accepted my submission and are featuring me on their blog today!

So hop on over to Quilt Story and read the story of how “Curious Carl” came to be.

It’s a favorite quilt of mine with a story that’s dear to my heart.

Thank you so much to everyone who reads and supports me in my creative endeavors.  Family, friends, friends yet to be made, people who pop in from a link up or feature…the fact that you spent precious moments of your time here in my little space means a lot.

And Megan and Heather…thank you for taking your precious time to poke around my little space here and to share a bit of what I do with others.  🙂

    Love this quilt! Great colors! I hope your husband really enjoys it 🙂 When I saw the quilt wrapped around your kids I thought, she must live in OK. Sure enough, it looks that way. I’m also in OK, but north. Always nice to find a fellow quilter round these parts.

I love to hear from you!
