33 {Best} of the Best Quilting Blogs


Time for my annual list of great quilting blogs! I started this in 2012 and just haven't been able to let it go yet. Things do change though with time. Wowsers do they ever! Some of the blogs I once stalked have faded away completely or perhaps gone in a different direction from what might interest me now. Understand that I'm an equal opportunity quilt blog reader. The thing is, whether you consider yourself modern, traditional, primitive, slow stitcher or perhaps even the improv. queen, I love, love, love to learn about the details of your quilting process. Great pictures help too, although I'm not so fabulous with that part of blogging myself. A {sort of} consistent style of posting also helps those of us who care well informed about the health and well being of those stacks of ufo's--the good, bad and yes, even the ugly.

I'm actually quite interested in all of your quilt projects {what you're doing or not doing with them} because it sometimes gives me the warm fuzzies to know that, uh huh, I might just be considered normal in my own approach. If it matters. And well..., let's not forget the saying, 'comparison is the thief of joy'. Unless of course we're talking about seeing a bit of ourselves in the way that others deal with creativity and its subsequent road blocks. Then that comparison can be a light bulb moment. Or at the very least, a spot of morning humor.*wink  Either way works well for me! Here's hoping a few of you keep those dreamy, cozy looking pictures coming along too. Contrary to popular opinion, inspiration doesn't always have to include tutorials to work its particular magic.

So here's 33 of {my} favorite quilting blogs in no particular order! You might want to read them too. Or just look at the pictures. Some of these quilters are so unbelievably creative, they almost take my breath away. I promise that it's not all about applique, folksy stuff, traditional and/or slow quilting. I have lots of interests from month to month. And as always, don't take it personally if your blog isn't included in this years list. It's probably still over on the sidebar or in my Bloglovin' reader!

  1. Thank you for a interesting list of quilt blogs. I haven't visited all but like the ones I have visited. It is always nice to visit another nice blog. The only disadvantage is that it takes time to read all of them. aubphg (at) hotmail (dot) com

  5. Thank you Audrey for including me on the list this year, and thank you for introducing me to so many good quilt writers. I enjoy reading what makes quilters tick, whatever category they assign themselves to. It's all about the process for me - whether you love basting or dislike fabric shopping (who are you?) - I want to know about it. Happy National Quilting Day everyone!
