30 Quilt Blogs That Inspire Me to Be Better

Some quilt tops waiting in the queue...
Having done a similar list three years in a row, you'd think I'd be better prepared for this. Um... no. My side link has 100 quilt blogs constantly updating just because I don't wanna miss out on anything that might be the slightest bit interesting. But then there's my Bloglovin' feed... Which we really don't want to discuss. {It's like potato chips. Hard to stop at just one.}

So this year I attacked my favorite blog list like it was a diet. If I could only have access to a very few quilt blogs, which ones were nonnegotiable for elimination? You know which bloggers I'm talking about--they of the mad skills who make us rather ordinary quilters practically weep with envy.*sigh  And then I carefully added to. Because really, how could I leave out the quilters I tend to follow just because they quilt with the kind of passion and dedication that I completely understand {and suffer from myself}. And what about those quilters who inspire me for reasons that are a bit hard to pin down, but nonetheless compel me click onto every new post with a smile? There are lots of reasons to be crazy about a quilt blog. Hope you enjoy the ones I listed today. You know tomorrow it could be a completely different list...

Listed in no particular order:
Gotta love the bloggers who keep link lists of their favorite blogs so the rest of us can go check out who inspires them.*wink
