Around the Quilt Blog World

After a bit of an absence due to pressing deadlines, I thought I'd tackle blogging again. Even though I didn't take the time to post pictures or share ideas, I did keep up with my favorite bloggers.

Here's one I found today who's doing an interesting series on color, from nature to cloth. (http://crookedseams.blogspot.com/).

I often struggle with who owns the quilt, the quilter or the long arm quilter. Here's an example of what I feel is a happy joint ownership, a very traditional quilt quilted in a way that enhances, not dominates, the lovely pattern and fabric. (http://quiltsonbastings.blogspot.com/2011/10/hexagon-stars-quilt.html).

What is your idea of long-arm dominance over a quilt top? How do you find the balance of density and design over fabric and block structure?
