My quilting journey

Close to 10 years ago my best friend wanted to make a quilt from her children’s baby clothes, and as usual, I decided to join in on the fun.  A girl’s weekend away later, I had a quilt from my son’s baby clothes, and I was hooked.  The first couple of years were “t-shirt quilts” made from baby clothes and larger t-shirt/sweatshirts, also referred to as memory quilts.  Once I mastered the t-shirt quilts, the easy “stitch-in-th-ditch” quilting, and inside-out binding, I moved on to making quilt tops from patterns, learning how to “free-motion” quilt, and adding binding with “invisible” stitches.  I started making my own stencils to use for the free-motion quilting, in fact, my wonderful husband bought me a Circut to save my hands and fingers during the stencil making process.  Though I enjoy the free motion quilting, occasionally I have enjoyed using my best friends Long Arm for the quilting part.
