Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Wow, so long since I've reviewed this profile and so much has changed. I retired 10/01/2016. and seven days later fell and shattered my wrist taking an afternoon walk. Really I should have stayed home and had a glass of wine. I have 1 hubby, 1 cat and 1 dog. Dog and I walk most days. I had such a lovely plan for getting organized and all that went on hold when I broke the wrist. Just getting back to figuring out what I'm doing now. The last few years of work left me with no brain or energy for extras other than piecing tops. Now it's time to get some project completions and catch up with the sites I love.
I'm a bit of a technique junkie, so my projects jump around a lot.
On a bad day at work I would hit the quilt shop at lunch and just caress the fabric. I call it visiting the therapist. Now I can have therapy whenever I want. Good thing they know me well there.
How many quilts have you made?
I didn't know that I was suppose to count. How about lots.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love making them. Getting to enjoy them after the fact is a plus.
How long have you been a quilter?
First quilt was in 1997 - you figure it out
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I love just plain piecing, and paperpiecing, and drafting, and - all the percision stuff. The fabric.
Why do you quilt?
It is fulfilling and calming.

being a technique junkie is ok in my book! lol i have seen fallerts series quilts done w the tucks. but i confess i didn't make a connection. she was doing those quilts ..what ..20yrs ago? dunno, seems a long time tho. and it seemed that every quilt mag i picked up at the time were doing focus articles. i love her work, always have. but, being more interested in traditional technique and styles, i won't be making any dramatic art quilts like this. but, that said! it does not stop me from viewing & ooing & ahing over ones i see and really really like. :)) ...and this one i like a lot. i am glad you posted it.

i went thru all your photos, some more than once. really enjoy your work.

Hey- I took a look at Sally's site and browsed her books on Amazon, where I could peek inside. If I pursue mini's beyond the current casual and challenge myself all three of the people I've found/heard of will profit. The three are Sally Collins, Carol Doaks and George Siciliano. Bottom line here, I have got to retire from my full time job and become independently wealthy. I need time and I need money to support my habit.

hi again. wandering around and reading here & there. saw your posts in the min i quilt group that sharon started. i joined the first one when i joined i just read sharon's sometimes. but, are you familiar w sally collins? if you want interesting and a challenge you can't go wrong w her patterns or designs for inspiration. she is one of the original mini quilt designers. she doesn't paper piece, or she didn', but i don't see why you couldn't if you wanted to. i took a class fr her years ago. her method is easy and accurate & what i still use. this link takes you to her gallery.

another link. note the "note" at bottom of page. i have most of her books, just got the drafting. i have been drafting my own patterns fr the beginning, but i find this book challenging and pretty heavy read. love it! i would like to get her cd they show, hadn't seen that before. the one of her working. hey! the class was a long time i could watch cd and maybe she has new tips or i see something i forgot fr class ...whatever.

Hi Kim  your quilting habits sound the same as mine. Are you doing BOM from craftsy? I am and so far enjoying it but did it in flowered fabrics from my stash so how its going to turn out is a mystery. pretty colourful. Hope this mystery quilt turns out as I have never done one. Also doing a BOM from a store in NC ( online) and I am disliking it- fabric seems cheap - way too colourful ( I like colours alot) not sure how it will turn out either. PS the ou in colours is because I am Canadian. Happy Quilting.  Irene
