About the Author
My mother taught me to sew in junior high and I used that
skill to make clothes for a long timethrough high school
and college. My first quilting project was a hand-pieced
bed quilt that took me over five years to complete.
Then small quilts caught my attention, especially miniature
quilts. Because I do have a full-time job but enjoy sewing,
the idea of making a small quilt appealed to me. I could
actually finish that! Plus it's fun to display the quilts
on a wall and admire them (and have them admired!)
As I made more quilts, my attention was drawn to the competition
side of quilting. Trying to make a quilt good enough to enter
into competition helped me get better at piecing, quilting
and all aspects of making a quilt. The design element drew
me in because it was another way to be creative. While I
enjoy my job, I also need something to do that is creative
and different. Quilting fills this need. I can pick a simple,
easy quilt or a complicated design. It's the whole process
I enjoy - from picking out the fabric to putting on that
last stitch in the binding.
Writing this book gave me a chance to explore an idea that
I've had from a long time - quilts in my (work) cubicle!
I like the idea of a quilt a month. I realize time is limited
for many women - our lives are so busy - but managing to
take time here and there to create something results in a
great deal of satisfaction.
