You remember how I often read other blogs (this in lieu of buying
quilting magazines) and try to recommend a few on occasion? Well,
do I have one for you! Actually, I have two blogs to recommend.
The first is Molly Flanders...Maker.

When I read this, "And then I came across Mary's beautiful picture of two very different quilts she made and loved," I honestly thought you were talking about me! Because this is my life: "I finally realized it's ok to be pulled in many different directions as long as my projects make me happy." Really, does it matter if we have a different style? I like modern, traditional, and everything in-between. I take classes on one, then make the other, or (more often) design my own work. I have books on every type, technique, block and border. I have a stash to die for, but you should see the mess--fabric from the 60's, reproductions, solids, bold modern prints....everything!
I haven't a clue what kind of quilter I am or what kind I want to be (and I'm 55!). Lately I've been saying eclectic because when I first heard the word I thought it meant crazy and, let's face it, that's not far from the truth. How about we start an Eclectic Quilt Guild! We could have our own QuiltCon-like show and encourage a few love-everything quilters to join.
What do you think? Eclectic Quilt Guild or not?
