Crafty Comment Karma and a Poll About Sharing Your Creative Work Online

Written by Laura Chaney, daughter

Last week's poll was all about the kinds of quilts you typically make!

We had a record number of voters, with 92 quilters weighing in! Functional or bed quilts won out with a whopping 96%, leaving art quilts with 4% and show quilts with just 1% of voters.  I'd expected the numbers to show a littler more variety, but I'm not surprised that the functional and bed quilts had the most votes.

In the comments, Daryl from Patchouli Moon Studio made a really great point about how the terms could interpreted by different people. If you hang a bed quilt on the wall is it art? Definitely a great example of how quilts and quilted home goods can blur the perceived boundary between function and design.

This week's poll is all about how you share your creative work online. 

I absolutely love love LOVE sharing my creative work online and also seeing what other people are making around the world. I use Bloglovin' (<-- Follow me here!) as my blog feed reader so that I always know when an author publishes a new blog. I'm still feeling my way through Instagram, but definitely love how people share progress photos of their work. I get some interaction on the Prairie Sewn Studios Facebook page, but really I'm using that to help redirect people to see what we've published on our blog. 

So how about you? What ways do you share your creative work online, either as its in progress or the finished project? Check the boxes for any that you currently use below, and be sure to share any other social media channels that you like.

  2. Interesting poll results Laura. I'm a little surprised at what a large slice of the pie the functional quilting has.
