Family portrait at my house in the digital age
I'm planning my panel presentation for the AQSG meeting in Lincoln next month. Terry Terrell, Carolyn Ducey, Merikay Waldvogel and I are going to talk about The Future of Chintz Research.
I plan to talk about digital age products to share one's research findings.
My favorite digital format is the blog. (I'm also going to expend a few words of Facebook, Instagram, Web Pages and Pinterest. )
I'm a sucker for visuals.
So I did a little research on blogs that interest me. Now some people will tell you that blogs are so 2015. It's Instagram and Twitter....
...except 144 characters is fit for nothing of any depth.

Blogs----I look at them as a quilt magazine with no editor.
Here's a list of some of the blogs I get in my email feed. I did notice that many of my favorite bloggers are shall we say ---older---
My age. We like a long format. Typing not tapping on a virtual keyboard.
These blogs are not in any order and they all include people who have posted in the last month or two. Some are about quilt history. Some get out a lot more than I do and post pictures of quilts they've seen. And some just post cool things.
Add some other URLs in the comments.

Mary lost her blogging partner Linda Chenoweth last year but she's plugging on about Quaker Quilts. An exemplary quilt history blog.
Merikay and I are wrapping up our blog on Chintz Panel Quilts. I'm thinking about starting a new one on Regional Quilt Style: New York.
