And the Liebster Goes to...

The very lovely Fiona of Finding Fifth has been kind enough to honor me with the Liebster award for small blogs. Fiona has some research on whence this award came into being and for what reasons it is given. You can read about what she found out here.
The gist seems to be that blogs having under 200 followers are the givers and recipients of this award. The award itself is given for what ever reason that particular blog inspires you. If you choose to accept the award you are then required to do the following, which I am copying from Finding Fifth
The 'Liebster Award' takes its name from the German word meaning ‘Beloved, Dearest or Favorite’. This award is given to small blogs that inspire you. Accepting the award then requires you to: 1. Thank the person who gave you the award. 2. Link back to their blog. 3. Copy and paste the Liebster award to your profile. 4. Pick 5 blogs that you feel deserve to be in the spotlight (they should have under 200 followers). 5. Blog about it and let the bloggers know why you chose them.

And with that being said, here are 5 blogs that inspire me; though I could have easily picked more.
The Not Always with Thread Amy is always sewing up something sweet for her grandchildren, frequently with vintage sheets.
Sew and Sews Theresa's quilts, bibs, bags and other fabric goodies are beautiful.
Modern Amish I love to see what Lindsay is doing with her Denyse Schmidt fabrics; clothes and quilts.
Janice Elaine Sews Jan's Elephant quilt is amazing, and I'm intrigued by her work with the Echo line.
QuilterBell Beautiful quilts and stitching and now adventures in clothes making.
