Updated Block Tutorials Page

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2010

I've been trying to think for awhile how to better organize and showcase all the different quilt block tutorials I have listed on the Block Tutorials page.  Previously they were just in a big long alphabetized list, which got the job done, but it wasn't very pretty!

A few weeks ago my friend Amy used a thumbnail linky to showcase all the quilts being entered in her Bloggers Quilt Festival - and it worked out so well!  I loved being able to see little pictures of all the different quilts as I surfed through the different blog posts.

So I switched over the block tutorials page to be the same idea - a big list of block tutorial links with a little thumbnail picture you can view to get a better idea of what the finished block will look like!  What can I say - we creatives are visual people, right?  ;]

I've linked up all the block tutorials that I had previously listed, but I know there are hundreds more great ones out there.  If you have a quilt block tutorial that you've made and posted on your blog - please link up!  And if you're looking for a great new quilt block to try, go and visit the new and improved Block Tutorials page!

Great Idea, Erin! It will be so much easier and faster to find what you're looking for then. (and I love that block on the top... he, he!)

Erin, this was a brilliant idea. I love this page with the sample images. I also have a fresh link for you from a bee that I'm in:

Awesome idea, Erin! Everything is so easy to find and browse through now. And I love that people can add their own tutorials to the list.
