  1. Is quilting something you do in your spare time, professionally or both?

    I quilt as a hobby, in my spare time. I have done custom quilts, but I don’t do them regularly enough to call myself a professional. I mostly make quilts and projects for family and friends.
     
  2. How did your passion for quilting manifest into a blog?

    Believe it or not, it was actually the other way around for me. I’ve had a blog for a while, but would frequently run out of things to talk about. I used to do a lot of digital scrapbooking, but there was no interest on the part of my friends. When I picked up quilting again earlier this year, I reformatted my blog and then eventually changed its title and URL. The stories just kept coming and there is much more interest now.
     
  3. What’s your quilting style?

    I lean towards more modern quilting, but not to the point of abstract. I like simple quilts, like squares-in-squares and half-square triangles and I really love the look of straight-line quilting
     
  4. Who do you quilt for and why?

    Family and friends. Mostly for gifts and to show them that I love them. There’s something about a warm and cozy quilt made just for you.
     
  5. Tell us a little bit about you as a person? Are you a mom? A wife?  A trapeze artist on the side?

    I’m a married, working mom with two boys and I’m also a full-time graduate student. Life is quite busy right now, to say the least. But, even so, I love every aspect of it and am glad to be doing what I’m doing.
     
  6. What’s the most difficult or unusual quilting project you've ever tackled?

    A Bethlehem Star quilt that I started this summer and am still working on. It’s very tedious and exact, so it’s a bit frustrating for me. There are a lot of small steps involved and the quilt is king-size, so it’s a double-whammy of sorts.
