I just won today (Wednesday) the Moda/Schnibbles contest, came in 2nd overall~! This was my very first quilt, and my very first win. I chose Carrie Nelson's Hot Cross for a variety of reasons. I love them, they symbolize for me Christmas and they would go very well with 12 days of Christmas Fabric by Kate Spain. I added the lyrics of Let it Snow all around the quilt which I called the same. I added black patent leather buttons to represent raisins on the buns and to me it screams HOLIDAYS.
I have already been approached for patterns and a book...I think some are possibly over the top excited, but really no match to the excitement of feeling like I sew belong to the Quilt World. My passion has been decades of sewing creatively in vintage design, home decor and a home wear line...'cause home is where you where them... I began as a doll maker and soon was sew inspired each time I placed orders for quilting fabric that I thought why not venture in the unknown , I am a quick learn...
Sew here I am, now on my 3rd design, I hand quilt each of my quilts and even have time to makehalloween towels, runners and purses..
