I love to admit it, I am a Quiltaholic!
I am a 20-year quilting veteran and still have no desire to slow down. As my quilting became more of a passion, the urge to build a quilting website was born. Since I am interested in developing my own quilting patterns and truly obsess over quilting gadgets, it only seemed right to get going and do what I have been wanting to do.
I have been a computer user since the 1980’s and have loved the learning process of using the internet. I want a website that would educate the new quilter so that she could learn how to quilt and show experienced quilters of all ages something new. I want a place where I would grow even more as I face the challenge of building a website. I want a site that offers quality quilting tools and products at reasonable prices, a place to do reviews and even comparisons of different and quilting supplies. I also want to include quilt fabrics.
I need a place to express myself and my creativity. I love to talk to people about quilting. So I will be blogging and I hope you will enjoy what I have to say. I am always open to comments, suggestions, and critiques.
I am also bringing an online Quilting Gadgets Boutique for you. I hope you will enjoy shopping on it as it will be a way for me to maintain this site.
In the review and comparison section, as I try out new tools and products I will be selling, please feel free to leave comments and reviews on certain tools. This helps other consumers know what is a great product to buy.
Although I have quilted many quilts I still consider myself an intermediate quilter. There are many methods of quilting and I am still learning and experiencing many new forms of the art. A few techniques I have never tried, but have a yearning to do, are quilting a whole-cloth quilt, learning trapunto or trying broderie perse applique. There are so many methods used in the quilting world and it will take a lifetime to experience them all!
I enjoy designing and have designed quilts right from the first quilting course I took. This creative process is due to the fact I like unique items. I am also left-handed and south-paws use the creative parts of the brain. Although I enjoy building someone else’s pattern, I love the challenge of creating my own quilting pattern.
In northern British Columbia, Canada, the winters are long, so I have many hours to work on my projects. I am like many quilters, with plenty of UFOs (unfinished fabric objects), but I am also a quilter that likes changing it up often so I don’t get bored with what I am doing. I quilt with a never ending circle of projects and as time goes by projects get finished. I very seldom give up on a project, usually because I love the project right up until it is finished which can sometimes take several years. I am a true quilter that lives with the philosophy that it doesn’t matter how long something takes, as long as it is done eventually. Another words, I might start a quilt for a nephew when he is a child, but he might receive it when he has children!
This site is my dream and made with you in mind! Please enjoy!
