Instagram + Friday night sew along

A couple of months ago I mentioned I was going to start using instagram. Verdict in….I love it. Why do I love it??

  • The instant feedback you get from the community
  • Takes way less time than blogging as a photo and short comment is all that is needed.
  • I love the fact you share more of your lives with people – it’s not all quilty things (the community accepts it on instagram more than in a blog). It seems more liberating to me, at least.
  • I love how you can actually see how your blocks may look in a repetitive pattern (once people like your photo – that small image repeats…I love that look).
  • Fabric destash (yes, you can purchase fabric on instgram…I had been missing out on that opportunity)
  • My favorite thing though, is joining in Friday Night Sew Along (thank you Miss Sarah!! for starting that trend) #Fridaynightsewalong

This is what I shared this week and most of it was through #fridaynightsewalong.

  1. Scrap-bee-licious April Blocks all pieced and ready for sewing IMG_1548IMG_1550
  2. Aerial Quilt top finish from yesterday’s post. #fridaynightsewalong
  3. Tapa Star Striped Pillow top complete (finally…almost done). #fridaynightsewalongIMG_1562
  4. Also, I finally made progress on the DS Chicopee Pillow – all pieces in each rows are sewn. #fridaynightsewalongIMG_1564

That’s my instagram (ml_wilkie) time this week and #fridaynightsewalong. If you are not using Instagram yet – I think you will love it.
