I took my first quilting class at ThreadBear two years ago and was immediately hooked. I started to read and follow blogs shortly after that class, and one of the first blogs I followed was Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl. Fast forward to the end of May 2015, and I read a blog post on Quilting Jetgirl informing new quilt bloggers there was a closed Facebook group available that offered support and technical help for modern quilters who were new to blogging (less than two years). At that time I had set up an account with WordPress but had not written my first blog post yet. I wrote my first blog post on an airplane and completed a request to join the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers group in a layover in Las Vegas, Nevada with hours left before the deadline to join the group. Yvonne was one of four mentors for the group, and she personally helped me so much with the technical side of blogging. When Yvonne wrote a post the end of 2015 asking people to consider becoming patrons and supporting the development of her quilting/blogging business through Patreon, I immediately decided that I wanted to be a patron to thank her for all her support. Now, this was not an entirely selfless choice. I have received some lovely Patron gifts including a pattern just for patrons and a mini mini quilt. And after I had supported Yvonne for six months, I qualified for a mini quilt made by Yvonne with an approximate size of 24″ square. When she asked me for feedback on what I would like, I requested a Kaleidoscope quilt using the colors of teal, aqua, coral, orange, grey, and low volume. I knew Yvonne would make something very nice, but I had no idea it would be so AWESOME!
