I happened to notice my tally of blog posts the other day and this very post is number 300! How did that happen so fast?
I never knew when I started blogging that I would enjoy it so much! It's a blast sharing what I'm learning and creating. It gives me some creative freedom and permission to make something that is not a show quilt. I love those too, but blogging has been very freeing from that.
So...what to do for post 300? How about a few highlights!
First of all, I started not only this blog, but at blog post 100 I started a Facebook Group called Machine Applique Adventures
which is up to about 550 members! There are people form all over the world in the group which I find so amazing and fun.
Second, becoming an Island Batik Ambassador has been an absolute pleasure and thrill! Here are a few lovely projects from my 2016 tenure.
Third, I've done two quilt alongs! The Flower in a Pot Quilt Along and the Brick Wall Free Motion Quilt Along (links are at the top of the page and I updated them last weekend!). So fun! I'm thinking about what to design next...
Fourth, I've made new quilting friends which is always fun! (Yes, I know....lots of exclamation marks. The third grade teacher in me cringes, but I'm just so excited I can't help it!!!!)
I hope you get to quilt today!
