A Blog Not to Miss!

By chance, I had a blogger stop by and visit my blog today.  She left the nicest comment and told me about a giveaway she was having.  Her blog sounded intriguing as she lives on Cumberland Island, GA. so I stopped by.  The Cumberland Island Quilt Chick is not to be missed!  The photography of the island and its wildlife is magnificent!  I have never seen Confederate money before, and she is using it in a quilt (she has printed it on fabric using a transfer method)!  I have learned so much by traveling throughout her blog--it is truly amazing!  I never thought that an island would have rattlesnakes, even in the South.  Her writing and pictures give you a clear vision of what it is to live on this island that has no stores, or things that we take for granted every day.

She is having a giveaway, which is for a wonderful book, City Quilts--signed by the author, but that is not the only reason to visit.  While I may never actually travel to Cumberland Island, I feel as if I almost have through her blog!

Definitely a must see stop in your summer travels.

Until tomorrow, happy quilting!


  1. Oh my. You are TOOOO kind Barb!~thank you. From the bottom of my heart. That means so much to me, coming from YOU! :)
    I think we are all so very fortunate to be able to take advantage of the WWW! Imagine the pioneer women and how isolate they were, with no outlet. I feel incredibly blessed to have this wonderful outlet and meet ladies like yourself! To be able to sit here on this isolated island and beocme so inspired and learn from to so many... how lucky! :) Looking forward to MANY years and great FUN ahead!!!! XO

  2. I'll check that out-I've been wanting that book! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the tip Barb - your blog looks gorgeous!
