I started quilting in high school when my grandma helped me with a senior project, but my true passion for quilting did not start until about 7 years ago. There is just something to be said about the fact that if I need a new blanket, something warm, something small, something big, something for a picnic ... I can make it myself. I love that feeling and nothing makes me happier than seeing my quilts in use. Love them, abuse them, wear them out .... my quilts are meant for everyday use.
Last year I started creating applique patterns that could be used for quilts or even for fun boutique style clothing. Applique is a newer medium for me, but I love how you can get any shape or design you want with it. I love the idea of creating scenes and making your quilt look like a picture out of a coloring book. I have been digital scrapbooking for years, so designing these patterns digitally...
