I Really Don't Want To

Share this link with anyone. I figure the more people that visit and comment on their sites will lessen my chance to win. I know not many read my blog..I am a blogging virgin after all...and am not consistent and not a sewing machine fanatic as some others are, but sharing the info to even one reader lessens my chance to win because when you go and read what is going on you will be following also and piling up your to-do-list. But I cannot be selfish..that is not the right thing to do. So if you read this you can follow this link http://gudrun.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/06/minnesota-designer-blog-hop.html and see some great designers.
If anyone reads this and knows how to make my links smaller please let me know!!
Have a good day

Easiest Zig Zag Ever

When I first discovered blogs..one of the first I began to visit on a regular basis was crazymomquilts.blogspot.com. I really liked her style. Then I seen this blog aquiltisnice.blogspot.com and really like her style also. She had made this quilt http://aquiltisnice.blogspot.com/2008/09/zig-zag-quilt-kit-tutorial.html and I really wanted to make it ~though I was dreading (just a bit) the triangles. BUT then Crazy Mom Quilts made a zig zag quilt WITHOUT TRIANGLES and posted her tutorial here: http://beesquarefabrics.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-make-zig-zag-quilt-without.html. Well I knew I was going to go to the Creative Sewing Festival in April and had no doubt I would find some bright and different fabric from what I usually use. I LOVE IT!!!..and easy easy easy...so I am on my way to make another one..just a bit bigger. It is my favorite quilt...It was also the first time I had actually did a pieced back..Love it ... The striped fabric was to be used for binding but I totally screwed that up so I used the leftover pieces to sew together and put on a binding with all the colours of the quilt in it. So thanks crazy mom quilts for showing yours!!
