I’m not quite sure how long Emily and I have known each other….I’m kind of thinking a while though.
I believe I convinced her to help out in a round robin quilt along that I was putting together or a past mini quilt class. Can’t quite remember, but she was willing to go for it and I have been an admirer ever since.
I hope you enjoy the interview, trunk show and our chat on the podcast. Enjoy!
I got my first sewing machine when I was ten. My mother patiently taught me how to sew. In high school I thought I would be a fashion designer, but life had other plans. I was blessed with three sons, who found my cute sailor suits and knickers less than desirable, so I started quilting.
I find the play with color and design challenging. I love to take an old design and make it new again.
I love meeting, teaching and learning from other quilters. I have a wide range of patterns, classes and tutorials available.
About the project for the quilt group:
Having July for my month I thought a patriotic theme was appropriate. This design started while playing with a basic star block. I liked how combining the hourglass center with the flying geese it created four hearts as well as the star. I know summer is busy so I wanted something that would go together quickly. So the Stars and Stripes table runner was born.
