I love reading blogs because I learn so much - whether it be a new technique, a new color combo, or a new pattern or tool. Everyone has different experiences and is exposed to different stuff. I love benefiting from that!

I love the ideas and quilting/sewing tips. Without these blogs, I wouldn't have been able to pick up sewing again, and I wouldn't have learned or had the courage to try quilting.

Anna said...

I like the inspiration, the tutorials and the pretty pictures! Blogs have taught me so much about quilting and given me ideas (and the courage) that I never would have thought of without them. Plus they're really good for procrastination!
