My Quilting Story

I started sewing when I bought my first sewing machine at age of 12. By my late teens I learned to sew custom clothing and draft my own patterns from measurements. Then I decided to make a quilt! I did not know what quilting was and we did not have online sources that time. So I figured out what ever I could by myself. It was nothing fancy, just a basic scrap quilt with a big heart applique.

Time went by and there were no more quilts until….In august 2015 we went to the Fergus Scottish Festival where I saw a group of amazing ladies who were hand quilting together.

I asked to join them to try hand quilting & to my surprize they let me work with them. Oh, it brought back so many memories & there was another BEGINNING (in 17-18 years after I made my first quilt)!
