I'd like to share a little about my quilting journey with you.
I made my first quilt in January of 2014. It was a simple alternate block which I made without a pattern or any instructions. I used 5/8" seams, pressed them open and attempted to stitch in the seam lines without a walking foot. To say the least, it was not a total success and the chore of cutting fabric up just to sew it back together did not excite me, so I had no plans to ever make another quilt. A couple of weeks later my daughter asked me if I would like to go with her to a sew day for 'Quilts for Kids'. While I didn't really care about making quilts, I thought it would be a good opportunity to spend time with my daughter, so I went. After learning what a quarter-inch foot was, buying a walking foot for cross-hatching, piecing a quilt with adorable children's fabric and spending a lovely day sharing the activity with my daughter, I was hooked! I pieced and cross-hatched over twenty-five quilts in the next three months. In May, I bought a free-motion foot and started learning to fmq on my domestic. I absolutely fell in love with free motion quilting. After doing many charity quilts to learn and improve my skills I purchased my first longarm and that is when the real adventure began....
