Hi my name is Kristen. I've been quilting for about two years now, but just recently joined the QCA.  My mother was a quilter and growing up she would always push for my sister and I to learn.  I was never interested in putting plain blocks together.   While looking for a gift for a baby shower, I came across a super sweet quilt kit with an unusual block construction and was intrigued.  I bought it, pulled out an old sewing machine and went to work.  From that point forward, I have discovered a world beyond my mother's standard 6 inch blocks and I am in love.  Every day I look forward to trying new things and am always looking for new inspiration. 

Within the last year a debilitating medical condition put me on permanent disability from my paralegal career and I have sinced started a little webstore to sell all the quilts I make that I don't give as gifts or donate. 

I have posted pictures of quite a few of my favorite quilts in my gallery.

Welcome Kristen. 

Sorry to hear about your disability.  I too have been on disability for a little over 8 yrs.  I took up quilting when I could no longer work and have never looked back.  Quilting is my therapy.  Hope you enjoy your time with us.
