It’s funny because I never planned to start a blog…I was taking an online Photoshop class from Kim Klassen and the next class in her series was about blogging.  I only took the class because I wanted to learn “mouseovers” and GIFs.

As I worked through the course, I thought a blog would be a good way to share my new hobby (photography) and my old hobby (quilting) with my friends and family.

For months, I had 30 followers-all friends and family.  Everything changed when I wrote the post “Four Steps to Perfectly Quilted Spirals”.

Suddenly, my “views” quadrupled  and a few more followers signed up.

I tried it again with another quilt tutorial…

Again my “views” quadrupled and a few more followers.

The Tuesday Tutorials were born! (See the full library of free motion quilt step-by-step motifs)
