A good number of our members got up and told us about themselves.
What would you say about yourself?
It took me a while, but here is what I came up with:
Since I started quilting back in 2008, my tastes have gone through several different changes. The hardest thing for me has always been picking fabrics. Show me a very small group of fabrics and I can pick, but show me a whole quilt store and I just go into a color coma. We had a scrap challenge back in 2009 and I think my whole perspective changed. I love scraps and I like batiks as well, because they mix just like scraps. I am a fan of Bonnie Hunter and I like brights as well as Half Square Triangles. Borders are my least favorite part of a quilt. I can follow a pattern, but I can also look at a picture and make a quilt from it. I frequently improvise. I like modern as well as traditional and contemporary. I enjoy continuing to learn new tips and techniques.
