Congratulations to Caityquilter who has taken the plunge and is in the process of setting up a new website and a self-hosted wordpress.org blog under her own domain. As highlighted in Lorelle van Fossen’s article, When Is It Time to Leave a Free Blog?, this do-it-yourself approach is not for everyone but it has its rewards.
Of course, ongoing maintenance and fresh content is vital to any online endeavour. I’m in the process up updating my Contemporary Quilts website which has been neglected since January. Here are a couple of new, never before published quilts:
These were my two entries for the recent Down Under Quilts calendar competition. I had design issues with both quilts (not the least, forcing them to be 100cm square!) so I wasn’t surprised to learn that neither quilt was selected for the calendar from the 54 contenders. Janine and Tracey had better success and I look forward to seeing their calendar quilts later in the year.
