  77. I prefer blogs that show/tell what didn't work as well as what did. I fail at fabric choices and sometimes I sew a bit wonky and end up having to rip a bunch of seams and start fresh and I like knowing that I am not the only one who has to do that.

  84. I am really open on what I look for- mainly inspiration. Sometimes that comes from a photograph, sometimes a tutorial, sometimes a discussion. I do like to see the process from a fabric pull, to the development, to deciding how to quilt it. Hope that helps.

    ReplyDelete
