A few weeks ago, I received an award for my blog from one of my follower, JanuaryT who blogs at Sew Sew Go: the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks again!
The Liebster award (German for favorite) is for bloggers with 200 followers or less. As a recipient of the award, you have the chance to thank and link back to the blogger who gave it to you as well as pass it along to five other deserving blogs.
It was the first time I heard about this award. Probably because I don't follow that many blogs and because the ones I do follow have more than 200 followers. Just today I got the award a second time, before I took the time to pass the first one along. I'm a bit ashamed of this. This time, I received it from Cinzia from Deux Petites Souris. Thank you so much Cinzia!
The funniest thing is that I was planning to pass it along to her. Me and Cinzia have been following each others blog for about half a year now. And we met in person a few weeks ago to team up to found the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild. I really love her quilts which her mostly done from solid color cottons and all in vibrant colors. I had the chance to see some of them last Friday at our first guild meeting. I really enjoy reading each one of her posts.
Here are the 4 other persons I want to pass it along:
- There is Chelsea from Pins and Bobbins. I got to know her in a bee I was in, the Fat Stash Bee. She always seems to have such a nice selection of fabrics in her stash. And from what I can see, she is really precise in her work. She just started a long arm quilting business and I want to wish her the best.
- I also want to give the award to Debbie from Esch House Quilts. She has a little over 200 followers, but I couldn't resist mentioning her. I love her style. She design her quilts. She uses a lot of solid color and that makes her graphic elements stand out.
- Then there is Brigitte Heitland from Farbstoff. When I see some of her quilts on Flickr, they always catch my eyes. She is also a long arm quilter and her quilting is amazing. Her blog is a real source of inspiration for modern quilters, from color and fabric combinations to pattern suggestions.
- And the last one is Terri Carpenter from The Fox's Den. Maybe she has more than 200 followers, her blog doesn't show. But in any case, her work deserve this award. I stumble upon her blog a few times and I enjoyed browsing it. I think her Traditional and Modern series is such a nice idea. I like her modern version of square within a square pattern. I also love these two mini-quilts: here and here.
Enjoy taking a look at those blogs, they are all worth the visit.
