Textiles, textiles everywhere!

I attempted my first real quilt not too long ago as a gift for our new nephew, Luke. Since then, I have been itching to do another one. I am saving the scraps from the little dresses I'm making for Abner and plan to assemble them into a motley pattern for a one-of-a-kind quilt.

This burgeoning interest in quilting has led me to check out a few quilter's blogs recently. One of my favorites is Simplify by Camille Roskelley. Lovely patterns, lovely fabrics, lovely pictures...well it's just all around lovely. Even better, they're having a giveaway. Check it out! (yippee...just tripled my entries by writing this).

There seem to be more blogs than anyone could possibly have time to read, so below is my list of recommended sites. Whether you're into quilting or textiles at all, you'll have to agree that these are beautiful pages:


  1. You haven't discovered the goodness of Google Reader have you? Yep, another Google product I'm spouting on about...but it's great for subscribing to blogs and being able to (sorta) keep up with them...mind you, when you get up to 152 subscribed feeds, it can be kinda difficult (he says sheepishly).

  2. ^ that answer sounds like something Jamie would say Trev. :-) Good tip though!

    Love the fabric sites. Am all over that Simplify contest - thanks for the tip!

    If you need any extra fabric bits come and raid my closet. I'm keeping a million bits and have no plan for them...

  3. I "Follow" all of them so I get a nice little feed each time I log into Blogger. So there! (That "So there" was to my brother...not you Miranda!)
