I feel like my journey started about 20 years ago because it was during this time I became facinated by quilts. I wanted to make one. So, I bought this book:
This is when my journey starts rolling. The fair is in town and the exhibits were brought up during a lunch discussion. I mentioned that I always wanted to make a quilt. Well, Teresa says 'Let's make a quilt to submit in next year's fair.' Alrighty then, lets!
I ended up finishing my first top. I'm so thankful that Teresa told me about pre-cut squares, it made the process easy. And that was a nice option because I did it by hand. Then I started on making a Christmas throw (by hand) with Candy Land - my first experience with Moda! Very exciting! I still have about 1/2 of it to quilt - by hoop. It's a UFO! LOL!
I came across Kelly's store and noticed she had a blog. I knew what a blog was but never had interest in reading anyone's blog. So I clicked on it - WOW! It was a blog about quilting! Who knew? VERY EXCITING!
A very sweet lady, Louise, who crochets, knits, sews, embroiders...asks if I would be interested in a Gammill she purchased about 11 years ago. I'm thinking...NO WAY!!! Good thing I met Kelly because she answered a bunch of questions I had about quilting machines. I would have asked Louise but she never took it out of the box.
I joined the Charming Girls' Quilt Club. Which has the most amazing, talented ladies I've ever (not) met. I'm also lucky to have a few ladies I work with that I can share my hobby with.
I started my blog. Where I've met more amazing & talented ladies I've ever (not) met.
I feel like one of those snow balls that gets bigger as it's rolling down the hill. And as I'm rolling, I can't stop giggling! I'm still giggling! All I needed was a little push...thanks Teresa! Well, as of today, I have completed 7 quilt tops & quilted 12 quilts. So far, it has been an amazing ride! Can it get any better than this? LOL!
