Beth from Plum and June has put together a fun blog hop so that new bloggers can get to know each other better, and those more experienced can find new ideas to make unique quilty projects!
I myself have only been blogging for a short while and am having a blast finding all sorts of interesting things to read. In fact, I just started a weekly blog post summarizing my web hopping, called Christa’s Quilt Links.
It’s my week to introduce myself during her hop so here goes:
I have been quilting for almost 19 years but it feels like I’ve barely just begun. I started by tying quilts for charity and thought that was the most fun thing ever.Then a friend introduced me to machine quilting and I’ve never looked back!
In between raising kids, I’ve sold some of my quilts, have taught numerous quilting classes and have been an active member of my quilting guild.
I’m still searching for my “niche” but I am attracted to bright clear colors and bold geometric shapes. The clean lines and intense “negative space” of the Modern Quilting aesthetic suits me to a “tee!”
About 6 years ago, my husband Jason quilt his job as a CPA to join me in making our on-line quilt shop our full-time business.
It was started about 9 years ago on a whim when a former student of mine suggested I sell my extra fabrics on eBay. I’m glad I took her up on that!
Currently, my blog allows me to put together simple tutorials that I eventually hope to publish as patterns.
You can quilt along with me right now and make your own version of my “Charming Chevrons” quilt now in progress.
Every 6-8 weeks I demonstrate the entire process of making a quilt from cutting and piecing to machine quilting, basting and binding.
Thanks for visiting!
Here are a few more blogs you can visit on your journey. Happy blog hopping!
