Squaring Up

Remember when I talked about quilting on Monday?  If not, I feel kind of bad for you, that was two days ago.  Get it together.  Anyway, I had mentioned on Twitter over the weekend that I had plans to make quilts before Christmas, and did that make me crazy?  My friend Ariel saw it and mentioned that she, too, had been wanting to make a quilt, and what did I think of creating a virtual bee for support?  We currently live on different continents, so virtual it was!  I loved the idea and soon we were planning and scheming.

I guess this is what happens when you have two highly-motivated women in charge, but we've started a blog and have plans to turn it into a community for modern quilters who need some support.  We're both beginners but we have a lot of moxie and determination, and we want to succeed.  Personally, I think with those traits, you can't lose.

Oh, what's the blog's address?  Right:  Right now, it's pretty sad and bare, but we are planning for more!  Our first official post should be up Friday, but in the mean time, we're getting things in gear.  If you get a Twitter follow from us, don't be surprised!  And feel free to join in; as we're moving along, we'll need guest posters to feature their projects or plans, and we'd be delighted if you'd volunteer!

We have big plans for this blog, so join us!


  1. So awesome!! Just this morning I was searching for new bedspreads online, but secretly wished that I could just sew up my very own quilt. I will definitely be following along with you gals. :) Adding the new blog to my reader now.

    1. Yay!! Maybe you'll want to join us and make a quilt of your own! :) I honestly swore I'd never make one, and now it's coming back to bite me. I'm so excited to get started!
