This is an exciting week for me because I get to reveal a NEW website set to launch this April! To celebrate, you could WIN a
Marie Osmond Quilter’s Companion sewing machine from our friends at Janome! Isn’t that exciting?
You may have guessed it by now – This April we will launch www.YouCanQuiltThis.com! We can’t wait to share with you the projects, tutorials, and patterns brought together by a team of experts and lead designers in the industry.
Plain and simple – I LOVE to quilt. When I was 14 I decided to put together 9×9 inch blocks and made my first “quilt”. (cough, cough…so it wasn’t the most perfect quilt, but I LOVED it!) Soon I was making a quilt for every brother and sister of mine because it was something I loved doing. (Oh, if I could go back and look at those quilts now!)
Shortly after I got married, I found a group of friends that also loved to quilt. Soon we were making quilt wall-hangings for every season of the year. I loved every minute. It was a time to chat with good friends and learn new skills.
Today I look back at quilts that grandparents have made for my children and I cherish every one.
Quilting is a passion for me –it’s a process — and a journey that I enjoy. Years from now I will look back at the quilts I’ve made with certain fabrics, old baby clothing, or other materials that make me smile, and I will be grateful I learned something new and found a creative outlet.
