I am in the process of updating a craft blog I have had around for awhile because I want to treat it more like a business by providing free patterns in hopes of gaining adsense revenue and maybe affiliate links. Eventually I am hoping to sell space for advertising but that is down the road a bit. I am looking for other craft bloggers who would be interested in chatting it up about it on here. I would also like to find some people wanting to do guest posts on my blog and I would like to find blogs to guest post on. Basically just anything about craft blogs and some networking. First, is that ok on here? (forums scare and confuse me!) If yes, well refer to above ramblings!
Hello! My name is Leslie and I blog over at www.bigcraftyblog.blogspot.com. I am looking for other craft bloggers in the area so I can check out your blogs! I would like to get to know some people who might want to split tables at craft shows or just meet up! Let me know! (you can also email me at glennfamilygardens at gmail dot com)
gotcha. I did find a tutorial for a rag quilt that seemed simple. I found one using t-shirts and one using flannel fabric similar to the blankets I will be using. You just sew all the layers together, one square at a time and then sew them together leaving flaps that you fringe cut later. Not crazy about fringe in general, but I am almost positive I could accomplish it. I have a rather cheap sewing machine (works decent and has survived my abuse though!) that I am hoping will make it over all the "bumps" with this method.
I have never made a quilt before but was hoping to make a very simple quilt from my daughters baby receiving blankets. I can't find anywhere that has instructions for a simple quilt of squares. I really have no idea where to start because every site I find that says they are for begginers never is. I am also concerned that the fabric of the blankets might not work for a quilt? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
