It's My Blogging Anniversary!

Devoted Quilter is 8 years old today! When I first started this blog, I was so clueless, I had to have my husband teach me how to get a picture from our camera onto the computer. I've come a long way since then, lol.

I had no idea how blogging would change me, to be honest. I wasn't a quilt pattern designer before I started blogging. I wasn't a business owner (and never thought I would be!) and I certainly wasn't teaching quilting classes online to groups in other parts of the country. I wasn't sewing clothes, either. I also wasn't writing much at all. Even though I'd start the occasional piece, I hardly ever finished them.

Mostly, though, I didn't have friends who shared my passion for making quilts from beautiful fabric. Starting this blog, and then joining Instagram a year or so later, allowed me to find this amazing community of quilters that I now get to call friends. I hope to one day meet more of you in person (so far it has been only two), but even if I don't, I love having you in my computer and my phone, lol.

To celebrate my 8 years, I'm having my annual Anniversary Sale 😊 From now through March 7th, all patterns in my Etsy shop are 25% off, no coupon code needed. Free shipping still applies to all printed patterns, too, anywhere in the world. 

Shop the sale!

Thank you for being part of my quilting community! Thank you for reading, commenting, liking IG or FB posts, buying patterns, taking workshops and sharing my love of fabric and thread and the beautiful things we can make with them 💗 Thank you for sharing your finished quilts and your works in progress, too. It's a wonderful, never ending parade of inspiration and joy!
