Honor's in Blog Land
Kay H of Quilt Studio Happenings has honored me with the Liebster Blog Award! Normally I shy from blog tags & awards but this one has great heart & substance to it. I will proudly post this award tag on my sidebar.
The aim of the Liebster Blog Award is to bring recognition and exposure to small blogs who have less than 300 followers. If you accept the award, you then agree to tag three other small blogs that you would like to recommend to others.
I can think of so many blogs deserving of this award but here are 3 inspiring blogs that I've carefully chosen to honor:
Quilt Inspiration would have to be my first choice! In my opinion it is a must read blog for quilters. Daryl & Marina fill it with so much valuable information regarding quilt shows, museum events, how to find patterns, free tutorials and feature the most amazing, award winning quilts. No doubt they will surpass the 300 follower mark very soon!
Pleasentree. If you love and/or appreciate Needlework then Merumo will surely inspire you with her beautiful heirloom style stitcheries! She is also a fabulous quilter. Her miniature quilts are gorgeous and all of her work is exquisite. If you stop by her blog - be sure to check out photo's of her darling dachshund LIMO.
Cozy Little Quilts This is a new blog owned by my very dear friend Sue. She creates the most elegant quilts! If you are inspired by Moda fabrics be sure to check out the beautiful quilt she is finishing up right now. I love her taste in fabrics and quilt designs.
The photo above is of SWEET LIBERTY -a miniature doll & tote that I designed back in 2008.
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
