CREATE recurring blogging event or MAKE plans to attend a blogging conference. That’s today’s assignment.
A blog event attracts visitors, and participating in a blog conference raises your profile.
A BLOG EVENT
Blogging University invites its students to start an event of our own.
Through the New Quilt Bloggers I was in the “Sewcial Swarm” hive, and one of the hive mates, Deanna at Stitches Quilting, posted about wanting to make a Cathedral Window quilt some day. The pattern was from a subscription service, Best-Loved Quilt Patterns, which I have. It belonged to my mother.
Deanna suggested we have a Quilt-A-Long together. Each week we’d make a Cathedral Window and within about three years we’d have enough for a twin-sized quilt — if we used 6″ blocks. Of course we could make it modern and oversize it — maybe double it for 12″ blocks. We could call it “Cathedral Windnesday.” I’d create directions for the “bigger” windows then post a block each week. My concern is it wouldn’t be very exciting and limited to one quilt block. I like the idea of oversizing traditional quilt blocks so maybe a combination of a Block of the Month sampler where I upsize a traditional block. That would be a BIG EVENT.
A BLOG CONFERENCE
Not sure this is for me, but perhaps this is something the Modern Quilt Guild should consider hosting.
Please let me know what you think about CATHEDRAL WINDESDAY.
