20 Great Quilting Blogs I know You'll Want to Check Out Too

Don't you just love finding quilt blogs that speak our special language or have projects that look like they could belong in our very own quilting rooms? What about the blogs that aren't particularly showing off quilts we want to make but still, they manage to make us smile or better yet, think? And my special faves, the bloggers who make the kind of quilts we can only dream about making some day when we finally grow up....
A block that may or my not be part of my next project
Ahem. Some of you are no doubt already there and enjoying mastery over this great craft! However, the rest of us tend to rely heavily on the visuals doled out by such great quilters to sustain us through our rather fun but sometimes bumbling efforts! For several years now, I have searched high and lo for quilt blogs that make the gears spin in my mind and act as great inspiration to my crazy, offbeat, quilting fixation.

Which leads me to this: Once a year, (after getting squirmy from wondering how anyone could possibly be left off this list), I like to pick a random number and say, 'Hey, lets go check out these {insert random number} wonderful blogs!'.  Between Google Follower and Bloglovin', I now stalk waay too many quilt blogs which makes it incredibly hard to winnow a list down to a meager few. You do not want to see all the hair I've pulled out trying to get determine where to even start stop.*wink

In no particular order:

2. pomegranate and chintz
3. Humble Quilts
4. Log Cabin Quilter
5. nifty quilts
6. she can quilt
8. selfsewn
9. Blue Mountain Daisy
10. Kathy's Quilts
12. Jump Cut Arts
14. Molly Flanders Makerie
15. Every Stitch...
16. Quilts... etc.
17. surely not another project!
20. mrs sew and sow

And now I'd better get back to what I'm really supposed to be doing right now on the computer....
