Have you checked out the Quilting Gallery yet? I joined over a year ago when I first started blogging, and thought it was a nice little resource for finding other quilting blogs. You can search by location, or just check out the newly added blogs. Since I joined, Mishka has turned it into a full blown resource site with blogs, a chat room, a quilt shop locator, contests, sponsors, swaps, charity opportunities – everything you could dream of. There are ads, but it’s tastefully done, and extremely “quilting appropriate.”
I just entered my Icicles quilt in the Weekly Quilt Themed Contest – this week’s theme was “Winter Fun.” I figured with a name like Icicles and fabrics from a line called Let It Snow, it qualified. Voting starts tomorrow, and the winner gets a copy of the Quilter’s Cookbook. You know I’d love that! You can also enter to win a copy by leaving a comment here. Be sure to stop by and vote for your favorite quilt – you can get to it by clicking the picture at the top of the post. Don’t forget to check out the future themes – you may find one that’s perfect for something you’ve already made, or one that triggers an idea for a new quilt. The list of themes can be found here. Themes are listed through the end of the year, so pick a future theme and start working on your entry!
