Congratulations April Member of the Month, Pam Butler!

Keep reading to find out where Pam found the inspiration to start quilting!

Pam's Story:

“When my daughter was 13 or so she had a blanket that was just a store bought comforter, but she loved it.  It was faded and lumpy.  I was scared every time I laundered it thinking this time it was simply going to fall apart.  My mother did not quilt, but when I was 6 years old, Mom got out an old blanket and bought some fabric and recovered the old blanket.  I LOVED that blanket!  I decided that I would recover my daughter's favorite blanket, but HOW?  I did not even own a sewing machine.  I used duct tape to hem my pants!  I turned to the internet to help me find a way to re-cover an old blanket.  I wasn't having much luck finding instructions on how to do this, but I did find quilts and they were BEAUTIFUL!  I fell in love with the textures, designs and color.   I went to my husband and said, "I want to buy a sewing machine".  To which he replied. "WHAT FOR?” I told him that I was going to learn to quilt and the rest is history.”

Congratulations Pam, from everyone at Quilter's Club of America!

Who knew how much this would impact my life and the lives of my family (who have had to be very patient with me & my obsession!)
