This marks the beginning of my sixth year of blogging about quilts. To celebrate, I’ve upgraded to a paid plan so you shouldn’t see ads when you view my blog. I don’t ever take advertising or affiliate links, but I was on the WordPress free plan, so they were allowed to put ads on my pages. Those ads should be eliminated now.
I’ve also updated my picture to a more recent one! The even better news is that you were spared the 5 years of changes in hairstyle that came between the old one and this one 😉
As I start the next year, I’d like your opinion. What would you like to see/read about on the blog? Please leave me some comments! And thanks for reading–I appreciate my readers, and many of them have become friends.
I absolutely love the 2nd quilt you posted today. Especially nice new photo of you! I have really enjoyed our occasional meet-ups across the country. Been thinking about the Asheville show this year.
You have a standing invite to stay with me for the Asheville show, which is September 28-30 this year. I plan to enter something; have been too busy to think what.
I love your new haircut and photo!!
As far as what I would like to see on your blog — I have no requests or advice for what you do in the future, but I will point out the characteristics I love about your quilting and your blog: 1) I think you are a master at achieving complicated-looking effects from simple techniques, and you always share the secrets of doing so, 2) you also do show intricate quilts, but you make them seem achievable even by less-experienced quilters, 3) to me your writing style is brisk and positive. I think you chose well when you chose Zippy Quilts as your title. I am always glad to see one of your posts in my inbox!
Wow! Thanks for the opinion on what to keep. I appreciate your kind words 🙃
Love the “new you “.
Happy blog anniversary! And as I commented on one of my post comments I love your haircut that’s a nice sassy look for you! Your quilts are wonderful and I enjoy following your blog😀😀😀
Thank you 😊
Happy blog anniversary! I love the today’s hair style, it makes you look much younger.
Thanks! That’s always a good trick 😁
Happy blogaversary! I love the new hair-do!
I enjoy viewing your quilts; and I learn so much from your posts. Your blog is a source of inspiration.

Mary, I love reading all your posts and seeing the great photos keep the photos coming.
Also, love love love the new do!!!
Thanks, Ann. It’s good to hear from you 🙂
Congratulations on the anniversary. There aren’t a lot of us who persist for more than a couple of years. Also I noticed your new photo attached to your comments in a couple of places. You look GREAT!!! So pretty. 🙂
Thank you, Melanie 😊
Nice new photo! Photo updates–or lack thereof– are fun. My daughter and I often laugh at the ~20 year gap between formal photos of musical performers and their actual look. 🙂
I like lots of blog posts about design decisions and photos
Thanks, Claire! I probably could do more about design decisions.
