Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been crafting/ sewing for over 30 years beginning with hand sewing “Barbie” clothing from a little girl to making my own clothing. I loved to make holiday home decorations, Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
With encouragement from my husband, daughters and friends I opened my own craft business.
All of my holiday crafts are designed and sewn by me.
Each year I design new holiday decorations, my collections are 1 of a kind and last for a very long time!
I’ve been adding some new ventures including: appliqué quilted table runners and wall hangings, crazy quilt handbags for women, children’s tote bags, and jewelry.
How many quilts have you made?
I've made several applique wall quilts and table runners
andrea tthanks for the friendship. welcome to my quilt place. i love applique. I learnned the skill when i lived in australia - i use the needle turn technique with freezer paper templates that i ron on to the front of the fabric.. excuse my typing errors - of all things i broke my arm this week. my first applique quilt was a 16 patch baltimore quilt - a class i took from Dianne johnston in brisbane. she was a demanding but excellent teacher. i live in houston now. where do you live?
Welcome to My Quilt Place! I am still new to the site, but I hope to share more photos and ideas and to see what others are doing! I have dabbled in applique and have one quilt I know I want to do someday when I decide which method will work best for me. Which is your preferred method?
