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!
