liebster blog award...

Marjolein of awarded me the Liebster Blog Award which completely turned a difficult day into a good one! Thank you! The idea is to nominate 5 blogs which you feel deserve extra recognition. Without further ado, I'd like to pass this award onto the following:

Pinkadot Quits. Kelly is an amazing quilter who is always working on something interesting. A recent project of note is a diary quilt with a block representing the events of her life sewn for each week of a year...

greenQuilts. Julia is the accomplished author of "Photo Play" which outlines her amazing and easy method for creating portraiture in fabric. I wrote more about her work here.

daintytime. Sherri Lynn Wood is a superb artist and the creator of this inspiring Quilt Along among others. I can't tell if she's already received the Liebster as she doesn't list having followers so am going to give her this award anyway. She deserves it!

Spirit Cloth. Jude Hill is another textile artist whose work is just extraordinary. Am probably bending the rules here too as she also doesn't list followers and she is well known. Her work is technically unbelievable and at the risk of sounding like a complete flake spiritually compelling...

fan decks and memos. Eliott is not a quilter (yet) but is a very talented interior designer. I've included her here because she is an insightful writer who posts really visually inspiring photos...

Lastly, if you don't already read the delightful Andie you need to. She has too many followers to officially win this award but I'm mentioning her anyway. She is creative, smart and super funny...

Hope you enjoy and explore these blogs!
