  1. Who doesn't love giveaways :)

    I enjoy seeing pictures of your sweet girls.

    I also enjoy your creative way of quilting and it inspires me to try more then just the traditional idea of quilting.

    Your tutorial are helpful.

    The challenges you create are fun and make me want to quilt even when I have no time to do so. They also help me think of different ways or things to make.

  58. I enjoy following your blog because your fabric choices are not at all what I would pick but you make it work and look fantastic. It forces me to try to think differently when I am picking fabrics for my own projects, your choices are bold and colorful and I think I can be too safe. Plus I love going to the apple orchard and seeing and hearing about yours makes me smile.
