When I lived in LA, I was an active member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild, and learned so very much from the wonderful quilters and crafters there. We moved back to Colorado Springs in November 2010, and I am excited to be a part of the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild. I have two sweet little daughters (4 1/2 and 2 1/2) a munchable little baby boy, and a wonderful husband who supports my "habit." I really only have time to sew after 8 or 9 pm, so my progress is slow, but I love it just the same.
I started quilting in 1997 when a good friend taught me how to sew and quilt. While I liked the process, I never got terribly excited about the end product. I stopped quilting until 2009 when my best friend got pregnant, and I wanted to make a baby quilt for him. While blog surfing, I discovered the vast array of beautiful modern quilts out there, and began to get excited about quilting again.
I think modern quilting is my style of quilting because I find it so freeing. I know that the construction of the quilt is important, but that the "rules" are not. I am excited to follow the story the quilt is writing, and not have to force the quilt to become what I think it should be. I love the modern fabrics, the vibrant colors, the funky patterns and designs, and I love the people! Modern quilters are so much fun to be around! I am often encouraged and
Now that I have found modern quilting, I love the process AND the final product!
