The Bloggers Quilt Festival has always been a favorite event of mine. Amy at Amy's Creative Side has been hosting it twice a year and I've managed to link up fairly regularly.
She's mixing it up a bit and has introduced an Instagram version with fun daily themes and giveaways all week.
Ironically, a news article recapping the fun thing I missed is actually a pet peeve of mine. In this case, it's never too late to enjoy browsing around this and past festivals to discover great quilts and quilters.
|Changes ahead - or not|
You might be wondering about today's post title. I use the phrase with a tone of annoyance.
If you're on IG you're probably aware of the recent proposed changes and bandwagon to give ello a whirl. I created an account for the purpose of securing the same name.

At a time when I've just about found my tribe on IG, the possibility of needing to start again on another social platform from scratch is daunting.
Reminiscent of when Flickr was my happy place and I was forced to (pretty much) abandon it and stumble around IG "Been there, Done that".
Reinventing the wheel apparently happens with the color palette I'm drawn to. Here I thought I was choosing unique combinations for Tilt Shift until I noticed the similarities from several old projects. (Mosaic at the top)
Finish along 2016 quarter one is coming to an end with only one goal complete. Not much else on the list was touched with the exception of my sons Delectable Mountain and he's given a blue border the thumbs up.
Here's a shot of the progress at a recent Quilt Retreat. The third time it's made an appearance here. I refuse to bring it again and will complete it at home.
|Progress - again|
Another example of having that familiar feeling - there was rain in the forecast during the retreat so I would occasionally check.
|55 and Repeat|
The next couple days are set aside for making my Layers theme bee blocks for March. I'm super excited about them.
Forgive the momentary blog post layout, typos and lack of links if you're viewing this before the formatting clean up - I'm doing it all from my phone these days. Having to access from my computer for that step doesn't happen right away but I am trying not to leave it messy for long.
