How did you get into quilting?
I started quilting when I was a student, it helped preserve my sanity. My first quilt fell apart due to there being very little quilting (It was tied actually).
How/when/why did you transition from a quilter to a designer?
When I was working on my quilt Bluebird’s Piece O’Cake I decided to try and design my own center block and border. I loved it and haven’t stopped yet.
Which quilt is your favourite? Did you design it? Why is it your favourite?
Miss Hannah is my favorite. Mostly because it was the center of my first Block of the Month and is named for my daughter.
How many UFOs do you currently have? Too many to count
What colour do you use most often in your quilts? Pink
Favourite one-sentence tip for a new quilter: Practice
Favourite size and brand of rotary cutter: Olfa
Favourite quote or mantra: well, one piece at a time (get it?)
