I really don't think you can get stuck in a rut!! not in blog land anyways...there are numerous bloggers starting free BOM's and designing new free patterns...the talent that is out here and the imagination is just incredible.
I on the other hand am one to just follow patterns and am very gratefully for those that satisfy us that love to do their patterns.. if it weren't for the designers..
I would not be a quilter.
I am adding 2 more freebie blogs to the sidebar... it pays to visit other peoples blogs and leave comments this really lets them know that the public appreciates what they are doing and likes their patterns...so that they have incentive to make more!!
Paula has a wonderful new BOM starting "Life's a Hoot"
Kaaren has "Freebie Friday" designs that she is creating and they are amazing!! I just saw the first one and her talent is really a great gift.. this one is embroderie for fall with the black crow and pumpkins
