Well this will be my first post and my first time blogging…still trying to work out how to customize my blog but I think I will get it! I guess an appropriate first post would be to tell you a little about me and how I became a quiltmaker. I have been quilting since 2002 when I took my first quilt class. I had always sewn (my mom taught me when I was 9) and thought I would really love to make quilts one day so the summer after we got married I wandered past a little shop called The Quilt and Stained Glass Company and went in. Well needless to say I was in love- I proceed to sign up for a class and even though I detested the pattern in the end, I was hooked. My husband then deployed that fall to Iraq and so I figured this was something to keep me occupied. So off to another class! (and another, and so on). In the year he was gone I ended up making 8 Quilts and then rest is all downhill since!
I recently started doing custom baby quilts on commission and am loving every minute of it!
I also have a very close Quilty bud that I share my love (or obsession 🙂 ) of everything quilts with and she will be blogging here as well. Well off to see if I can accomplish anything while the little ones are in nap time! I have to download my photos from the quilt show I went to yesterday and when I do I will post them and the goodies I purchased there later.
