Allyson, what an awesome inaugural post! Your writing style is wonderful and you leave me wanting to hear more and more about your quilting journey and your life in Alaska. Welcome to blogging!

Hello from Kansas (near Kansas City). I found your blog from reading twosisters blog. I'm not a blogger but a blog reader. You're right, that is one fat cat! looking forward to reading more.

Allyson, what a beautiful quilt and a beautiful story. I found out about your blog from Nicole at Sister's Choice. Keep writing (and quilting). I'll be stopping by again for more.

Allyson! What a wonderful first post. I'm fairly new at quilting and blogging. I've been a lurker for a good while and just recently started leaving comments. Nicole sent me over and I'm go glad she did.

I'm so jealous that you were able to get your blog put together and looking so good so quickly. I'm wanting to join the blogging nation but am really struggling with it! I hope someday you'll be able to read my posts.

I'll come back, I hope you have time to post regularly, even if it IS summer!

Allyson, excellent first post! I have not started a blog (yet)I am just a lurker, but as I read all of the great blogs, including this one, I feel I want to jump right into the deep waters and give it a shot! I have already added you to my list of wonderfully fun stuff to read!

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging. I enjoy blogging in the winter when I am doing more sewing than in the summer. Hope to see lots of pictures of your quilts and scenery in Alaska.

Greetings from Southern Louisiana! Congrats on the new blog - enjoyed your story and love the quilts - there is a special place in our hearts for the first quilt! Keep up the good work!

What a great blog, Allyson. I look forward to reading more from you - I like your writing style and can't wait to see more of your quilts!

Hi Allyson, Greetings from New Hampshire. I arrived to your blog through Nicole's so welcome to blog world. I look forward to reading about your quilts and life in Alaska.

Hi From Virginia....welcome to blogland.

Welcome to Blogland!

Don't be too harsh about your first quilt - it has served you well . . . . and look how far you've come *s*

Congrats on your new blog. I am just a blog reader and totally enjoy following all the quilting blogs. Sister's Choice being my all time favorite. What a wonderful place you live. So hello from TN

welcome to blog land. I am a newbie as well. I loved your first post and stories of your quilts. I think all quilts have stories attached to them...if they could only talk. sister's choice sent me your way. don't work too hard this summer.

Congratulations on joining blogland! Nicole from Sister's Choice sent me over here and I can't wait for more posts (no pressure or anything:) I'll be following your blog from Georgia.

I read about your new blog on Sister's Choice and decided to pay you a visit. Your post is certainly interesting. The story of your first quilt especially. You have come a long way in your quilting adventures!

Wow! What a gorgeous quilt. And what a fun first quilt. It's a treasure and you're right to keep it. TFS!!

Greetings from Las Vegas! I just read about your blog on Sister's Choice and decided to stop by and say "hi". I don't have a blog (yet), but enjoy reading all the other quilting blogs and will add yours to my "list". Have fun with it and I look forward to reading more about you and your quilting experiences.

Allyson: Welcome aboard to blogging. Your red quilt is just amazing. You indeed have come far. I'm looking forward to hearing all about Alaska and quilting up north.

Allyson I found your blog through Sister's Choice. Yes I would live in Alaska given the chance. Our daughter had a one-year job in Fairbanks and I visited 5 times and tried to convince her to stay. I also tried to convince my husband to move there but no luck. I'm looking forward to reading all about your job and your quilts.

Hello, Allyson! I'll be following your blog from Washington state...found you via Nicole at Sister's Choice. Bravo to you for deciding to blog...I know you're going to find a lot of new friends. Enjoyed your post...look forward to more!

I loved your first post. I also loved your honesty. I happen to like your first quilt. You can't go wrong making a flag quilt.


Hi Allyson - greetings from Toronto, Canada where some days we have almost as much snow as you do! I came over from Nicole's blog as well. I loved the story about your "Dad's" quilt - how lucky you are to have a friend give you that perspective. I'm looking forward to many more wonderful stories.

Welcome to the world of blogging. Interesting, fun and kinda like a journal for others to read and comment. Have fun with it and I will come back often to see what is new.

Nicole also sent me your way. Welcome to the blog world. You'll find lots of new virtual friends!

Well, Hi Allyson. Nicole is the sender, for sure. I'm here because of her recommendation. Southest Alaska...I have a good friend who lives in SE Alaska, too. Maybe you know her? (kidding)
You wrote a very nice first blog. I'm glad you did keep your dad's quilt even though you felt so badly about it after he died. And you have a nice friend who helped you understand it from a new perspective. I'm sure that quilt will always be one of your favorite treasures.
You're bookmarked now.
