What is the Leibster Award?

The Liebster Award 2017 is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

The official rules for the award can be found at the Global Aussie Website.  As nominees for this award, Sandy and I are to answer a few questions about ourselves.  Here they are:

1.) Who inspired you to quilt/sew?

Mom – she always let us sew on her machine, helped us solve sewing problems, encouraged us to be frugal but adventurous (Cindy)

My childhood friend (aka The Quilt Pusher (TQP)). She invited me to make a quilt with her about 5 years ago and I’ve needed rehab ever since. (Sandy)

2.) If you could meet one person you have never met, who would it be?

Ooops, left this one blank!
