2017 Liebster Award - Discover New Bloggers





I have been nominated by Rose Mikulski who blogs at Something Rose Made.  I am grateful to Rose for nominating me and grateful, too, for our cyberfriendship that developed during the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers.  You can read more about the Liebster Award here.


My favorite blog is by Mary at Making Quilts From Stash.  Her style and pace drew me into the blog world and I still love watching what she does and how her family is.  



Rose asked me to answer a few questions so, here they are:

Who inspired you to quilt/sew?I was inspired by the beautiful quilts the Amish made.  I grew up in Berks County PA where there were many Amish.  I always admired their handwork and the gorgeous quilts they made.  

If you could meet one Quilt Personality, who would it be?Right now I am obsessed with machine quilting and would love to meet Christa Watson or Angela Walters.   Both are inspiring me now to look at new things when I quilt.  

Your preference while quilting: Mostly I quilt in silence, but sometimes I will put on a book on tape or a TV show. 

Do you have a favorite snack/munch while quilting?Lately its Trader  Joe's kettle popcorn.

Do you look for quilts while watching a movie?I always notice them in a movie

What comes first when you make a quilt?For me, it is often buying stash and then I look for a pattern.  It is rare that I do it the other way right now, as I am on the 2nd year of a finishing up UFOs which include stash collections that need a quilt!

What is your favorite quilt/sewn project/craft?It varies.  Sometimes it is the one I am working on and other times I go back to my hand appliquéd and hand quilted quilt, Not Quite My Baltimore Album.  
 

















Hand Quilt or Machine Quilt?Machine quilt almost always.  No time for hand quilting right now, but I do love it and hope to get into it again next winter when there it more time

Favorite Color?  Purple

Favorite Quilting/Crafting Item?My Bernina 440QE

Do you work on one project or many?Too many at a time!

Another fun part of this award is nominating other bloggers; here are my nominees, all participants in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers:
