When I discovered quilting I was completely astonished how the contrast of light and dark fabrics could completely transform a quilt, it blew my mind! I fell in love just playing around with fabrics, “wow, look how the entire quilt changed just by turning that one block”!
When I started free motion quilting it was a challenge to get my body and mind to work together to relax and create designs. Soon it became like painting to me. That is how I feel about quilting, the fabric is a blank canvas that I get to paint with thread!
The best feeling for me is when I get a call from a customer that would like me to quilt for them. Each time it’s like a brand new invitation to create something new. I am excited and my head swirls with ideas and it’s terrifying all at the same time! It’s a challenge that I welcome with open arms because seeing a customer’s face when they see their quilt is priceless! The excitement and happiness and sometimes tears of joy fill me with delight!
