    Thanks Brenda for organizing the blog hop by blogs and days on your blog to make it easier to visit the other blogs. Some others just have a long list of links without the day they are each posting on and I have no idea if they have had their day yet. I find some links are so hard to know where their blog is on their site as there are so many things listed, yet even when I clicked on where it says blog, nothing happens other than showing a small photo in the slideshow. And Brenda you are the only IBA that I know that promotes others on FB. I haven’t seen others do that (I don’t follow them all, but some would pop up in my feed you would think). As far as the question about what factors I think of when choosing fabric and patterns, I first see if it is something I truly want to make and not too large so I can get it done and not stress my shoulders getting it quilted. Colors are the easy part for me to choose and I try to use scraps as often as possible too. Sometimes I will make a smaller quilt like a runner if I want to test out a pattern or make sure it gets done, lol!
