p.s. i quilt: postage stamp quilt along.

I love a quilt along!  Not that I have done many. This new one will be my second, although technically I didn't "quilt along" to the other one. See, I only discovered it after the fact. And. It just so happens it was another one hosted by Rachel Griffith of p.s. i quilt, the first one she hosted, it was a Pinwheel Sampler.  I loved how mine turned out!

Used a Layer Cake from Moda's Verna by Kate Spain.

I just ordered my fabrics for the new Quilt Along from the Fat Quarter Shop.  Love this store. Don't tell, but this is my second order this week, and it is only Wednesday. :-)  Two orders =  more mail = two packages. Yippee.  Love me some mail.  Anyway, Fat Quarter Shop is offering a discount (see Rachel's blog post for details)!!! I saved $18.30!!

Okay, back to the POSTAGE STAMP QUILT-ALONG.....  I plan to turn this....

Blogging and Quilting: Goals and Aspirations...

Isn't that just a catchy, make you want to read title? Am I creative or what?  ;-)  It will get better, it has too. 

But, since it is the beginning of the year and I am a relatively new blogger, I felt this was a good opportunity to evaluate my goals.

1. weekly postings
2. better pictures of quilts
3. more pictures of my process
4. write a tutorial? I have an apron idea using some charm squares.
5. offer a give away after getting 10 followers?
6. really evaluate purpose of my blog- personal journal? or something more?

1. complete at least one quilt per month
2. make a scrap lap size quilt
3. more to follow!

Okay, for now this is it.  Please know that this is a work in process.
Thanks for reading!
