Scraps of fabric and colorful thread become a palette of paints for this quilter

I grew up here in Wisconsin and love my farming state. My husband, Tom and our three children currently live in the country. I love the inspiration I have out here with the sand hill cranes, fields of crops, and beautiful sunsets. I have always love to create things, but it wasn't until the last decade that I started quilting. Traditional quilting got old for me quite quickly. I didn't like the utility side of constructing quilts, stitching square after square together. Boring! Then my best friend's mom gave me a box full of hand dyed material, some Quilting Arts Magazines and taught me how to use fusible webbing - I was hooked!

Most of my designs are original; meaning I came up with the pattern on my own, but I am inspired by other artists, nature and photography (my husband, Tom is a photographer). The creation process is the fun part for me. I often don’t have a final project in mind but create as I go. Fun, fun, fun!

I am also a musician and play in an eclectic band and play at my church. I love to sing and play guitar, piano and even accordion now and then!

My favorite job of all has been being a wife and mother to my family. As a home-schooling mother, I am blessed beyond comprehension and will keep quilting, mothering and making music as long as God allows me. I am a simple girl, simply put. It's taken me years to be okay with that - to accept myself just as I am, just as my Creator accepts me - just as I am.

So, thank you for visiting my Artfully Sew Shop! Please stop by often and I hope that I’ve brightened your day with my little store of quilted and embroidered things.

Artfully Sewing,

Angela Jean

    Once there was a simple girl who lived in the country with her photographer husband, home-schooled kidlets and egg-laying hens. She loved to quilt, sing, garden and play. And she lived happily ever after.
