UPDATE:  I received the following comment:

I thought that I should post it here for everyone to read.  :)

I was looking for something to use to make a new banner for my blog (still not done and updated yet) so I put a post on Facebook to ask for help.  Any graphic artists who could help me.  My friend Paula said she would help, but what did I want?  That was a harder question than I thought it would be.  I knew I wanted something unique and edgy because that is who I am.  I scoured the internet looking at artwork and clipart and quilting websites.  I finally found an image of a (different) skull and cross-scissors on a T-shirt website.  My first thought was "I want that shirt".  Then, "duh!"  I should use that for my blog!!!  I googles skull and scissors and emailed Paula some images.  she used her handy dandy computer to make the logo.  she sent it to me in a couple of colors and with some different fonts. 

We finally settled on what you see below.  I am currently working on a black and white version that I can edit the colors on at will so I can use it for labels.  YAY!

Dawn from As Sweet as Cinnamon wants to know why the different blogs anr named what they are.  She is even holding a contest if you are willing to blog why your blog is named what it is.  Go here to link up your post for the contest.

I thought of so many names for my blog before I started.  I knew that I didn't want my name in the blog name.  I (one day) would like to open my own quilt shop, so I tried to make it a name that I could use for that too if I wanted.  As I tested names to see which ones were already taken, my list kept getting shorter and shorter.  Quilt Genius wasn't even on the original list.  At some point, I typed it in and found that the web site was available, so I jumped on it and here I am.  :) 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. So, are you the "go to girl" when we have quilting questions?

  2. Now you need to tell us how you came up with the skull and crossed scissors!
