Welcome to the new 42 Quilts!


I'm so glad you took the time to click over from the old 42 Quilts! The old blog served me well for a long time, but it just didn't seem to quite represent me accurately anymore. So, in order to move forward, I needed to start fresh with a new look, a new feel, and hopefully a new attitude!

You'll notice that 42 Quilts now has a different address. This is so it's less confusing having the address different from the blog name. But this means there are some things you'll need to keep in mind:

  • If I'm bookmarked in your favorites, you'll need to delete that one and re-bookmark this one.
  • If you have me on your blogroll, you'll need to switch it as well.
  • If you are a follower on the old blog, you'll have to re-follow here. My followers won't transfer. So please take a moment to do that now.
  • Same if you are a networked blogs follower. You'll need to re-set that up as well.
  •  If you have links on your blog to mine, you'll have to reset them. (If you have linked each MM/TT block to me, you'll have to redo all those as well. Email me and I'll get you a list of the links to make it easier for you! milodesigns(at)embarqmail(dot)com)
Here's what's new:
  • An About Me page where you can read my bio, contact me and request speaking/teaching engagements. (This is still under construction. Look for it to be up and running soon!)
  • Dedicated pages for Modern Monday and Traditional Tuesday. Click the tab along the top and you'll find links to all the blocks in one place.  If you are new to MM/TT, you can jump in now without having to search through several months of old posts to find the directions.
  • A page to see all the Quilt Retro Launch Party posts in one place!
What won't change is Modern Monday and Traditional Tuesday! Each week, I'll still provide the blocks and instructions same as before! I'll also be adding a page for the MM/TT community where you can link to other blogs and see what others are doing with their blocks! [5:00 update! This is up and running now. Click MM/TT Community at the top to see the links.] And look for blog buttons coming soon as well!

Thank you so much for all your support over the years! I appreciate every one of your comments and support of the Quilt Alongs and everything else! I hope you stick with me through the transition!

  1. Love your new look! My "older" eyes found the black background a little tricky. Your new blog is like a breath of fresh air! Bright, inviting, inspirational! Maybe I'll even catch up with the Modern Mondays and Traditional Tuesdays! Enjoy your new space!

  2. Thanks Lesley! I was starting to hear that exact thing from too many readers, so I knew it was time to ditch the black!

  3. Your new look is so fresh. I love it. I´m so happy that I have found your blog and I have bought Quilt Retro. It wasn´t quite easy to get it in Europe, I had to order it from Amazon in US. But it was worth it, in spite of the high fee for shipping.
