I started a blog to process thoughts and ideas about fabric and quilting. I love fabric and quilting…probably to an unhealthy level. I started quilting while in college and quickly fell into the obsessive “I LOVE THIS” phase of my life. I am still in that phase. It’s safe to say it probably isn’t a phase at this point, lol.
My mom started quilting while I was in high school. She used to say “I’m making heirlooms” which still makes me laugh when I look at those heirlooms. I started to quilt by working on her projects. She would take a class, I would watch her and then when she wasn’t looking, I would sit down at her machine and figure it out for myself. I love the way fabric feels when it is pieced together. All those cuts and seams mixed together to create something wonderful is sheer joy for me. I took up quilting on my own after that and haven’t stopped since. I have taken a few classes here and there but mostly I just taught myself with what I could find. There aren’t a lot of quilting stores near me so my resources were limited. Now I have unlimited resources available to me through the internet!
I wanted to blog about all things quilting to connect with the quilting community. Wherever I travel to, I look for quilting stores. When I meet new people, I pry a little bit to find out if they too are a secret fabric whore like me. I look forward to talking to people and reporting on things I find. I also look forward to sharing my projects, mishaps (of which there is no shortage), and adventures. Take a look around and join me!
