2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 6 newly discovered bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers to let them know they have been nominated as Stylish Bloggers.

7 things about myself:

#1 - Next to being passionate about quilting, I am passionate about decorating.

#2 - I love to workout at the gym with my husband.

#3 - I live in the rainy North West but sun.

#4 - I live in the city but would love to live in the country someday.

#5 - I have 5 kids that keep me on my toes.

#6 - I am a professional longarm quilter.

#7- I love spending time with my family.

Now the 6 blogs I'm awarding as Stylish Bloggers:  

Helen at RobinStar Quilting.  
Helen is my sister and I wouldn't be where I'm at if it wasn't for her.  She helped me with my first quilt years ago and is very talented!  I have learned a lot from her quilting expertise! 

Pam at Quilting Square One
I met Pam through longarm quilting.  We hit it off instantly.  She is the one that encouraged me to start my blogs and I thank her for that.  This has been a lot of fun.  Pam is also a very talented quilter and I have learned and been inspired by her talent!

Natalie at Threaded Mess.
I discovered this blog through Flikr.  I loved one of her quilts she had posted on Flikr.  She uses a lot of solids in her quilts...which I love!  It's blogs like hers that inspire me to step out of my comfort zone.

Marianne at The Quilting Edge.
I also found Marianne's blog on Flikr.  She had quilted up a quilt with a large spiral quilting design and it looked fantastic!  Since then I have become a fan of her blog.  She has uses a lot of stripe fabric in her quilting and I love the way she puts them together!  She also has a beautiful house!

Leila at Sewn.
You need to check out Leila's crazy quilts!  They are so much fun!  Very different..than what's out there!  She has a fun way of using different types of fabrics in her quilts.  She also uses ric-rac..very fun.

The blog Dee's Doodles.
I found this blog through Flikr also.  She did up a quilt using orange and aqua...which she donated.  I loved it.  I'm dying to do an orange and aqua quilt.  That was very inspirational.   Thanks for that!

I love to find new blogs, being a newbie my self!
