I’m a quilter, living in Wisconsin, where the long, dark, snowy winters definitely lend themselves to spending hours with fabric and thread quilting. Tho I love all types of quilts, applique is my passion and many hours can be lost designing new projects with EQ and sharing many of them with my quilting friends on The Quilting Post (TQP) an online quilting list which I help run and now sharing some of them through this blog.
Through 4-H in grade school, I began my love of fabric by sewing most of my own clothing. That continued until about 25+ years ago or so when I decided to try quilting. No longer was there time to be sewing clothes — I had quilts to make.
So this blog is my tale of quilting travels, fun with friends and family and whatever else happens to strike my fancy.
I also knit and crochet and am especially hooked on knitting socks. Hand dyed yarns are just as addictive as beautiful fabrics.
With my trusty Featherweight for piecing and my little old, nothing fancy Janome to machine quilt on, I’m fairly prolific in the quilting department (even more prolific in making tops – quilting them all myself does slow down progress a bit) but many finished items go to charitable causes or there would be no place left to stack quilts in the house.
So what am I up to today?
Probably…. Just Quiltin!
A WORD (or two) ON COPYRIGHT: Any patterns I present on my blog are free but that does not mean they are not covered by copyright. None of my patterns should ever be shared – they are for the use of the downloader only. Do not copy and distribute in any way – whether on paper or via email. Do not ask that a pattern be emailed to you — Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will I email patterns individually to anyone. Patterns are available for a limited time. Once a pattern is no longer available, you can no longer get it unless I chose to sell it through the EQ Boutique website. EQ Boutique is the only place any of my patterns are available for sale. I do not sell them direct. Regarding a finished project from my designs, keep it, gift it, donate it, or even sell A (as in one) quilt made from them – but they cannot be used as part of your own quilting/sewing business (like digitizing my designs to make items for your clients), making multiple quilts from a pattern so you can sell them, etc.
