Quilting Meme

I have been fascinated by blogs for about a year now. I have never participated in a meme, but I have read many.

A meme is something that travels quickly from one person to another, whether through email, blogs or some other way. When a meme is found on a blog, it is usually a list, or series of questions that you answer, then ask others to do the same on their blog.

So today, I am going to post a Quilting Meme. I got it from the blog called Susan in Stitches (see my blogroll in the right hand column). Susan is from Australia and I have enjoyed her blog for some time now. I changed the list just a little bit, to “Americanize” it some.

Here are the rules:

Bold for things you’ve done
italic for things you want to do, and leave the rest normal.

If you want to play along, copy this list to your blog and then follow the rules. (Here is a tip: copy and paste it into a Word document for easier formatting. If you highlight the list in Word, then click Edit, then Clear formatting, it will speed up the process.) Have fun!
