I have always enjoyed creating crafts. I am a self-taught crafter who
has learned by my mistakes. Typically, I will see something I like and
say, “I can make that”. I have dabbled around with oil painting,
ceramics and pottery, but I have always been interested in quilts and in the abilities of creative quilters. In March 2012 I decided to take the plunge. I bought myself a sewing machine and taught myself to sew. I then read every quilting book and magazine I could get my hands on. In 2012 I made 8 quilts. I gave most of them away as anniversary and Christmas gifts. I LOVE QUILTING! Seriously, I have never gotten such satisfaction from a craft before. I have a demanding job, and quilting is relaxing. I know that at the end of my day,
after everything is quite, I can go to my sewing machine and I
can make something really beautiful and unique. I can turn what is in my head into something that is
wonderful...without the messy clean up of oil paint!
