Before I wrap up the Precision Piecing Quilt-Along, by thanking sponsors and announcing winners, I want to let everyone know that QuiltShopGal migrated to a new (and cheaper) web hosting service. It was supposed to have happened over a weekend, a week ago. There was a point that I thought QuiltShopGal was going to die a quick death, long before I could complete all I wanted to do. Thanks to Marian Pena of Seams to Be Sew, for her help and encouragement during this migration. I still have a few pending issues in the migration, but now have email back up and running, as well as the ability to release new posts. Woo hoo!
note: my address remains www.quiltshopgal.com
So, today, I want to wrap up the Precision Piecing Quilt Along. I hope to have inspired others to challenge their piecing skills with small blocks and seek out perfect cutting and piecing, to get us to slow down and improve our piecing skills. There are a variety of ways to improve our precision piecing skills, but stitching small blocks is truly a great way to do so. And, Hope’s Quilt Designs has many beautiful mini-block patterns that you can download for free.
I also want to share that ALL of the participants in this event, who are bloggers, were also added to My Creative Blog List, which is a great site to follow super creative blogs. I hope all bloggers and non-bloggers check it out. I have found this to be a great resource to follow a variety of creative blogs and I’m hearing from others that agree.
