What is your quilting style?
I like to combine both piecing and appliqué better. I definitely like the freedom more of art quilts but I love how amazing a pieced quilt looks when you choose the perfect fabrics. I’m probably an ‘art quilter’.
How did you get started quilting and/or designing?
My grandma still tells the story of the ‘quilt’ I made my brother when I was 5 from my mom’s rag bin – including the old furry toilet seat cover. I was always creating things as I grew up and loved to sew. When I met my now-husband’s mom for the first time, looked around her house full of wonderful craftiness, and I thought to myself, “This woman is going to like me.” We started to go to her house every Tuesday for dinner and I would work on my first ‘real’ quilt AND get a delicious, home cooked meal! I have continued to work with Diane (my mother-in-law) since that time on different quilts and projects, including Project QUILTING. She has been a fantastic quilting mentor – I couldn’t have married into a better family!
Do you have a favourite quilt?
I’m digging my quilt ‘Owl Be Yours’ lately. It was really fun to make and it was definitely a quilt that ‘created itself’ as I worked on it.
Quick and fun questions:
- Favourite colour: rainbow (as my 4 year old would say)
- What part of the quilting process do you like the most? Stepping back and looking at my creation
- What part of the quilting process do you dislike the most? BORDERS!
- Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or: cookie dough!
