New Year/New Look

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 πŸ˜‰

As I start the next year, I’d like your opinion. What would you like to see/read about on the blog?Β  Please leave me some comments!Β  And thanks for reading–I appreciate my readers, and many of them have become friends.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 blogπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  4. 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. πŸ™‚

  5. 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. πŸ™‚
    I like lots of blog posts about design decisions and photos
