Hey Everyone! Ever wonder about the story behind blog names? Well, Dawn at Sweet as Cinnamon has and she's asking us to tell our stories. There's a Moda charm pack in it for one lucky blogger.
You can also find a few more stories over at KaHolly's blog.
As for me, I had just discovered the fabulous Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran and loved their philosophy about quilting...namely, not to worry so much about perfect piecing, but to enjoy the process. I found a quote that said great artists didn't worry about colouring outside the lines, which I thought was perfect and wanted to incorporate that into my blog name. However, "I think outside the line quilt designs are pretty cool" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue now, does it?! ;-) So, I shortened it to "outside the line." And that's my story.
