A few of my Favorite Things

I am trying to figure out about this Quilters Blog Along. There is a Daily Blog Along to prompt a blog post. I am joining in on A Few of My Favorite Things.

Of course one of my most favorite things is fabric!

Beautiful lovely fabric! How can we as quilters not love fabric. There is such an enticement when I walk into a Fabric shop. All the eye candy just takes me to a special place.

How can something so simple bring so much delight?

I even love the tools we use for quilting.

What fun it is to measure out and use the fabulous quilting tools that are available to modern quilters.

And of course Quilts are another favorite thing.

I could honestly surround myself with all of these favorite things and enjoy a day, a week, a month of projects.

So these are a few of my favorite things. What about you? What are some of your favorite things? Quilting related or not? I'd love to hear about them.

Happy Quilting!

Fabric – definitely
Can’t have too much fabric - Right?
The most favorite part of quilting for me is the designing and then seeing it come to life in the finished product. :)

Oh, all those things are my favorites too. Some of my other favorite things are to go antiquing with my hubby. It means time together and exploring. Another favorite things is to have all my kids and there spouses over for dinner.

I love all those things, too...and quilt shows.....and Amish quilt shops......and yard sales.....and the beach in spring and fall (on sunny days, of course)....and the smell of some of my favorite flowers (and vanilla and cinnamon, too). Gee...I guess I can't pick a favorite, can I?? LOL

That blog looks like fun. I'm going to join it too. Sometimes I have nothing quilty to say so prompts are great things.

I have a lot of things I like but right now I think it's antique quilts. I love seeing the way women used to do things and the types of fabric they used.

Oh for sure fabric, my featherweight, the loons calling over the lake when I'm falling asleep, being told I'm going to be a Grandma, being told my only daughter is moving back to MN and quilting blogs like yours!

Dena said...

In addition to fabric, tools, and quilts, I would add blogs because of the inspiration I get when I read about other quilter's work or learn of a new technique. Love it!

I was just thinking this morning how much I love my sewing machine, it gives me such perfect 1/4" seams, has a thread cutter, needle up and down and is just such a joy to use and I even love her blue and white colours. and then of course I too love fabric...and everything else associated with Quilting. Other than that Fishing I can't wait to be out in the boat again.
