Moving

I believe this may be my last blog post. I bought a new iPad and I am unhappy to learn that my blog posting app "Blogsy" is gone. Who knew apps come and go, but Blogsy is gone and after online research I do not have the ability to get the app from my old iPad to the new one.

The good news is that I am going to just move to Instagram. Find me at @underquiltedcovers. I think I am going to like mini blog posts and I am finding many of my favorite bloggers on Instagram.

I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging. It all started when I found the Civil War Bride Quilt. There was a group of quilter's who would post their progress on a blog started by Liz McMahon in Australia.

Most of the participants had their own blogs and so 7 1/2 years ago I jumped in also. Here is my first post:

I have made a LOT of new friends, from all over the world. I have learned so much about quilting and applique from reading other blogs. I have found so many new projects from blogs and blogger's block of the months and exchanges.

The Civil War Bride was a great quilt and a great beginning into the quilting blog world.

Technology and social media move ahead at lightning speed, but I am sure we quilter's will continue to find ways to share our passion.

Happy Stitching Always!

  3. It was so lovely to revisit your gorgeous CWB quilt!! I'm just a couple evenings of stitching away from finishing mine :0) I'm sad you're going to stop bloging - I like Instagram too but the thoughts, stories and process are hard to share there. I will definitely follow you there though - I don't want to miss out on all the beautiful stitching you do. I'm glad we got to be friends through blogging!!

  6. I too will miss you - but thank you for saying goodbye. Some of my favourite bloggers have just stopped posting - I check every now and then but some have been silent for over 2 years. I used to wonder if something had happened to them. All the very best to you.
