I, too, have found quilt bloggers to be some of the kindest people around. I still belong to a couple of mini quilting groups and one large guild, but I am think I am going to give up the mid-sized (12 people) group after December maybe earlier. I don't seem to have enough in common with that batch of women. But here, online, I have found friendly like-minded quilters who allow me to share my quilting and needlework and a bit of my day. I believe that you treat others the way you want to be treated.
And so to share this award I am passing it on to
Kim at Kim's Big Quilting Adventures
Shelina at Shelina's Creations
Granny Fran at Toad Haven Annex
Amy at The Calico Cat
Kim at A Peach In Stitches
There are others I would like to nominate, but they have already received this award
Last Saturday, when I came home from the Sculpture Show all hot and tired, I found a package in my mail box from Michele at With Heart and Hands, a Quilting Journey. Looky! Two patterns from an Oregon designer for bags! O how my outlook changed. Now I want to make some so badly, but I am still out of time.

Speaking of the Sculpture Show, I loved the dress this woman was wearing. She kindly posed for me. I have 2 other photos that show the piecing on the garment. The fabric was a rayon challis, you could tell by the drape. The front was a scoop neck with slight princess seaming but the features on the back were what made the dress! The straps over the shoulder were cut a bit wider where they attached to the back of the dress. And notice the shirring? What a great way to add ease to a garment.
O. BTW, I edited the post from the Sculpture Show to add a photo.
