My quilting isn’t about always following rules. It’s about creating something beautiful and unique and special. I was exposed to quilting at a young age through older relatives and it wasn’t until I was in my thirties that I really decided to jump into the journey of quilting. It happened because my close girlfriend was having her third child and being a third child myself, I knew this baby would want something she didn’t have to share with her siblings. I decided to make her a quilt – the first of many I would make solely out of pleasure. I am constantly experimenting with new techniques and ideas. I find inspiration by visiting museums and looking through magazines and blogs. My most recent adventure has been long-arm quilting, and I’m in love with it.
