This quilt made me a little crazy. I talked 10 of my friends to buy this kit and make it with me. It first was sold as a block a month on the Quilt Show. We bought it from Superior Threads because they were selling it for 1/2 off. As of today 3 of the 10 are finished with the quilt. Now what to do with it. Because even though it wasn't expensive it took many hours to make.
My Mom taught me to sew the summer before I started Jr. High School. I took sewing classes in Jr. High, High School, College as well as other sewing classes at local stores. While my children were small, I made most of their clothes as well as their cousins in Arizona. When my husband and I moved to Houston, Texas in September 2001 I started taking Quilting classes. I knew then, that not only Houston was where I needed to be but quilting was my passion. In November 2006 at the Houston International Quilt Festival I purchased a Gammill Long Arm Machine. This machine would be able to help me do a professional job on all my quilts. I love all the steps in making a quilt, but doing the final step of quilting is my favorite. Since November 2006 I have quilted 75 quilts on my long arm. I've made quilts for charity groups, family and a few for me. I hope I will be around for many more years, because now I have a rather large stash of fabric to use. We have sold our home in Texas and we are now living in Hawaii.
