Turns out the Liebster award is a tag game for helping readers discover new and under-read blogs. Wanda over at Wanda’s Life Sampler tagged me. So thanks to Wanda, and I’ll be passing it on to some other bloggers. You can check them out at the end of this post.
Here are my answers to Wanda’s questions, but I changed some of them! The next folks in the chain might change them, too…
1. What one thing do you believe with your whole being?
It’s important to learn something new every day. It may be positive or negative, but all knowledge is useful eventually.
I learned to make a sample block before cutting out the whole quilt!
2. What have you made lately?
I’m glad you asked that question! This month’s finish is the top for a “Black and White and Red All Over” quilt for which I’ve been collecting fabrics for some time.
This was made from a pattern called “Lemon Pepper”, but of course mine is more red pepper!
I also sent 5 donation quilts to the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House. Three were finished this month, 2 previously. Here are some of them:
Design by Cindy Williams
Simple quilt from a recipe on Craftsy
The “New! Improved!” quilt
3. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or neither?
Presently neither. Though I do miss having a cat right in the middle of every project and cat hair everywhere 😉
4. Where do you hope to be in 10 years’ time?
Retired from my “day job” and in my quilt studio full time!
5. Favorite dessert?
German Chocolate Cake!!!!
6. What is one thing you wish you were better at?
Always saying the right thing.
7. Describe your Dream Vacation?
The next one! But I did recently have a great trip with my husband to Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

8. Why do you blog?
To promote modern quilting, and North Carolina quilters in particular. If you’re a North Carolina quilter and I haven’t featured your work yet, please contact me!
9. Your best sewing/quilting advice?
Do what you enjoy. I used to make all my own clothes, but then I figured out it’s a lot easier to get a quilt to fit a bed than to get a garment to fit my frame!
10. What else is new?
Here’s a picture of Pat with her FINISHED table runner, started in a class I taught recently!
Pat finished her runner in time to give it as a gift
And here are some bloggers I’m passing the “Liebster Award” on to. I think you might enjoy them!
