2 Why I began this Blog

This blog is a sketch book. In it I experiment with ideas for quilts or parts of quilts.

I started this blog because you could be designing quilts and I want you to. Let me explain.

I enjoy sewing quilts. But I love designing them. And I am amazed that more quilters don't design their own quilts.

Designing is an adventure; it's exploring possibilities. And designing is fun; it's playing with combinations.

Exploring and playing don't require any special talent. So everyone can design. Why don't they? I think it's because no one ever showed them how to.

I wrote my book Designing Quilts is Easy! to show how easy it is to start designing. I began this blog to show exploring and playing that I've done. My hope is that this will encourage you to try designing.

When you do, you will have quilts designed by you, sewn by you and loved by you.
