I’ve now been blogging weekly for 8 years. One of the best things about it is “meeting” people from all over the world and reading about what they are doing. Some of them have been at it even longer than I have, though many of the bloggers I’ve “met” have since quit writing.
Here are my current favorite quilts from each of the years I’ve been blogging.
I’m going to delete many of the older posts since I doubt they are serving any purpose at this time. I have had a book made for each year, as suggested by my friend Linda, so I can always look back at them if I want.
Well, I have been reading your blog for around 5 years now. I enjoy your creativity and color! You bring something to the table that many don’t. Congratulations on your 8 years!
Thank you. I appreciate your reading and commenting.
Congratulations on 8 years, Mary! I remember when you were considering different options for the name of your blog, and it’s hard to believe it was that long ago!
Thanks 😊. I guess time flies is for real.
I am with you on deleting some older posts. Can you explain more about what you meant by having a book made? I have printed out a lot of my posts, and store them in notebooks, but if there is a more efficient way to capture what I posted, I would be interested to hear about it!
I have found your blog very inspirational over the years! You seem to always have a fresh take on a pattern, and the way you write about them makes it evident that they are achievable, at my skill level and with the time I have available. Keep quilting and writing! 🙂
I use Blog2Print.com, which was first recommended by another blogger. If you go to the site and sign up you’ll eventually get a discount coupon. Thanks for your kind words 🙂
Eight featured quilts for 8 blogging years! Congrats! I, too have been getting delete trigger-happy on old posts…thanks for suggesting an option via Blog2Print.com. I think there’s also some sort of WP plugin that can do similar things.
Anyway, My few years of following you have been a joy – here’s to more years to come!
Thank you. I always appreciate your comments.
Rising Star remains among my favorites. I always enjoy seeing it in your blog header, and it was nice to see the whole.
Thanks. I made it for the Quilt Alliance with inspiration straight from my (long ago) basic design course.
Congratulations on your 8 years. I love the quits you chose to share today
Thank you 😊
Congratulations! I love reading your blogs…so much fun, inspiration, and information.
You are such an inspiration! Eight years of weekly blogs is a huge achievement and your “pick” of quilts for the years takes my breath away. Congratulations 400 times over, Mary.
Could you tell us how you collated your posts into books for each year?
I use blog2print.com, though they’re in the U.S., so may not be as useful to you. Thanks for visiting and commenting 🙂
I loved this trip through your blogging years. I am starting on making books, too, but am not current, so I’ve got to do some work to catch up! I have found that some of my early “ditsy” posts could be deleted, but I’m always surprised when someone comes into the blog from an older post–something they’ve seen somewhere, or found on Pinterest or searched for. I really love that quilt with the diamond-like quality: Zippy Star and Pillow. Beautiful!
Thank you. I could spend full time developing and writing patterns, but I have so many other interests that I won’t. Still, it’s fun when one is published.
Happy eight years and I am honored to be followed by you and to have read your blog for I think 7 of those years! Wonderful quilts!
