Good Morning, Quilters!

Have you seen “The Dress Debate” that’s gone viral?  I’m in the “white and gold” category along with one of my daughters–the rest of the family:  blue and black.

What do YOU see?

Fascinating!

Another busy week at The Inbox Jaunt!

THE MYSTERY QUILT-A-LONG

We finished the Mystery Quilt on Wednesday (though there is an epilogue next Wednesday).  I found it “Very interesting, my dear Watson” that you were split down the middle- those who prefer to see a quilt before beginning a project and those who prefer the excitement of a mystery.

I agree with both sides…(how diplomatic of me, don’t you think?)  Let me explain…as a quilter, I would prefer to see the finished quilt, though because this project was small with minimal fabric and time commitment, I think I would have participated…

As the author of the project….The Mystery was much more fun!

BOOK WORMS AMONG US

I really enjoyed hearing how you all feel about electronic readers on yesterday’s post, Are You a Book Worm? I think we are all in the same boat, reluctant, but we have to admit there are advantages.

I loved Brian Dettmar’s (AKA The Book Surgeon)  comment: “Electronic readers allow books to quilt their day jobs and do more important things” (paraphrased)…

I’m just glad we can have BOTH!  I could never give up holding a book in my hands, or the joy of cracking open a quilt book…and then re-thumbing it a million times!

GIVEAWAY

I also found your Goals for 2015 interesting…Definitely a consensus—

FMQ. Apple and WormAre YOU a Book Worm?

Do you think books and libraries are outdated?

Would you rather read a book or a Kindle?

Not only is his art amazing, he offers a unique perspective on the future of books.
