Doin’ What I Do Best . . .

I recently had cause to pause and take stock of myself and this site.

The blogging gurus stress that a blogger should choose a topic that he knows better than anybody else and focus on it.

So, I wondered, “What do I do best?”

Is it quilting?

No, there are quilters out there who are way better than me (and have the awards to prove it).

Is it quilting tips and tricks?

No, because many quilters have their own way of doing things.

So, what do I do best?

What I do best is design kick-@$$ tessellated patterns, suitable for patchwork.

That’s what I’m gonna focus on . . .

Over the next week or so, I’m gonna make some changes to this site:

  • Choose a new, simple theme;
  • Create new header art; and,
  • Present lots and lots of tessellated patterns.

I hope you’ll embrace the changes. Please leave me a comment with your thoughts.

  1. Sounds wonderful to me. At least you know what you do best, me, I’m still trying to figure out what I do. Love your designs and I’ll be looking forward to your new blog and patterns. I am hoping that you offer a few of them for free : )
    Keep up the great work. I’ve admired everything you’ve done so far.

  2. hi I’m glad you know what you enjoy and are good at and I agree about your amazing ability with tessie (love that word :)) patterns. I was raving to a friend about this pattern you had us try and she said gosh it sounds so complicated with all the shapes it showed .. and I said “that’s the point he makes them down to just a few straight stitching lines and THEN you land up with all these complex shapes” I look forward to seeing how your site changes.

    1. Thank you, Margherita!! It must be the right thing, because it seems to resonate with me and others like yourself.

  3. I really enjoy seeing your process of working out quilt designs and the evolving of your blog and thoughts.
    I think if you’re happy with what you’re doing, that’s what really matters. Good for you. I think we bloggers are a special group of people who have the ability to reach out all over the world and connect with, inspire and make new friends.
    I’m babbling here but it’s from the heart. Take care.
