I feel inspired by something on every sewing blog I visit, so it was hard to pick only three. There is a whole lot of talent and skill out there, but these three inspire me every time:
- Sujata at The Root Connection. You have got to check out her "Confetti" quilt in the post February Finish. It's fantastic! And I just love her process.
- Sarah at Pings and Needles. Sarah's witty writing style and posts about her process keep me coming back. She was one of the first people to greet me here in blogland. Being the newbie that I am I learned a few things about blogging etiquette too.
- And Nifty Quilts. Beautiful colors, hand quilted, appliquéd awesomeness! I could feel the love radiating from Nifty's most recent post. Marvelous.
One last thing. I decided I'd follow the tagging back as far as I could. I made it about 7 or 8 generations back before I couldn't find the "Tag" post, but I was struck by a couple of things. First, it felt sort of like doing family tree research. Even though I don't know you ladies well, I felt a connection to the Taggers from 3 or 4 or more tags back. I just can't get over what a cool thread the tagging created, and it seemed similar to a family tree in that, beyond grandparents or great grandparents, we don't really know our relatives before them, yet we're still connected to them. Aside from the obvious effect of gaining more exposure, tagging is a really neat concept from a relational point of view. Second, I only started this blog a few weeks ago and I must say I'm absolutely blown away by how amazing quilting bloggers are. I'm encouraged, inspired, complimented, and I learn so much about quilting by reading your blogs. I can't articulate my feelings fully here but it's changing my world view a bit by being here and contributing. It's making my world better because I'm feeling what a wonderful place it is here in the quilt blogosphere. Nuff said.
