Now I definitely believe that people should give credit when they use a tutorial from another designer, but I have found it amazing how many people unrelated/unconnected can really come up with the same ideas! My favorite sites are the ones that share knowledge. So, it is my hope that I can blog more honestly about my quilting processes, my feelings, even my frustrations. One friend told me that she likes my quilts, but she could never do anything complicated like them. I realized that I had failed to share the process, to her I had made it look like it was easy for me, so when she tried something it was complicated and frustrating. She was discouraged to try more. I hope through being more honest in my blogging she will be inspired to give things a try; hey I have lots of failures, and I will show when those can happen on a project.
And speaking of confessions, I have to tell you that I did the unthinkable, I bought more fabric. I took some babysitting money to the new Super Walmart that opened up about 7-15 minutes from me (depending on traffic) and bought some of the "Creative Cuts" pre-cut fabrics. I have been curious how they compare to the designer fabrics I usually buy. When I saw these prints, it was just too much to resist because I have been wanting to do a black and yellow quilt that won't look too much like a bubble bee! I will be posting tomorrow to tell you about my WIP for the week. I am using the new fabric as an incentive to finish all my other projects I am in the middle of currently, and then the cutting will begin!
