  11. Hi, Angela. I love to see finished quilts on blogs. But I think what draws me most is someone willing to share instructions as they work on a quilt.

    That wall hanging kit you are offering makes a beautiful little quilt!! Thanks for the give away.

  14. That leaf quilt is AMAZING! I'd say that quilts in progress and finished quilts catch my eye!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I usually like any post that involves fabric in some form but the ones I really like are "finishes" and they are even better if the blogger talks about what inspired the quilt and a bit of the process. I'm always interested to know what other people's processes are. :D

    Thanks for a chance to win. That leafy wall hanging is really pretty and the fish thing made me snicker!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would definitely say that pretty fabrics are what catch my attention first-- but also projects that look like something I might like to try make me read a blog. :-) Thank you for the chance to win one of your cool prizes!!! I'm really enjoying this blog hop so far!!!

  17. I adore seeing some WIPS, but finished quilts thrill me to no end! I'm a beginner, and I need the positive reinforcement that these folks were once beginners, too... right? :)

  30. I don'g go with the flow so I guess I am alive. I follow 300+ blogs (which of course means I don't read every post every day). Their is some bloggers I read more of their posts then others. I am a visual guy so if its words only unless the title or something in it scream interesting they are normally passed by. I blog and read blogs to get inspired I hunt for pictures and or tutorials that will help me increase my quilting skills. The better the pictures the more likely I will read and keep reading. Hope this is what you were looking for. Oh and now following by reader could not find the GFC follow button.

  66. What a great question! I love tutorials, and I always check out any mention of scrap quilts. I do not think I have ever passed up a blog post about table runners either! When a quilt blogger is asking for advice on fabric choice or choice of borders, etc. I always go and read that post too -- and usually all of the comments as well! It is a good learning exercise for me.

    ReplyDelete
  67. tutorials and giveaways always grab my attention, but the post should have tutorial or giveaway in the title or I may not open it. I use reader and browse through until I see something I fancy, then open it to read.

    ReplyDelete
