Modern Quilt Blogs and Websites

I got my booth set up at Quilt Market today -- except for the 4 or 5 things I forgot -- like chairs!  Thanks to my friend Machelle, the booth came together pretty well. 

Tomorrow though, I am giving a presentation on ways that quilt shops can appeal to the new modern quilter.  I am making a list here of modern quilt blogs and websites (in no particular order) as a resource for these shop owners, and anyone else who is interested.  I am sure I have forgotten someone.  It isn't intentional.  I just forget things sometimes.  So if you have a modern quilt blog or website that you would like to add in the comments, please do!

The list really could go on and on.  In fact, start with those and go blog hopping -- see what they link to and see what they link to and see what they link to . . . . Yes, blog hopping can be a black hole.  If you are really worried about it taking 6 weeks to see it all, set a timer on yourself and see what you can see in an hour or two.  Because 6 weeks isn't enough either!

It isn't my blog, but I sure do enjoy http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot.com/ I like her quilt-a-longs and often I can get fabric for the quilt-a-long at a discount. That's a nice feature.
