I have been
quilting for two years. Self-taught, I learn from patterns and YouTube
videos. I have just completed my first pattern testing job for TQPM
and loved the experience. I hope to continue learning new skills
and garnishing new experiences with continued use of the TQPM
I have been testing for TQPM
since 2012 and love it. I am a self-taught quilter and learned how
to quilt from magazines and the internet using card tables for my
cutting and sewing. TQPM has played an important part
in my growth as a quilter.
I started quilting in March 2006 when I
joined a guild. In September of that year, I entered five quilts
in our guild show and won my first blue ribbon. I started testing
for TQPM this year (2014) and love the entire process.
Quilting is my passion; fabric and patterns, my inspiration.
I have been quilting for over 30 years and
testing patterns for TQPM since 2010. One of the things
I like about pattern testing is trying new techniques and making
quilts from designs and colors that have been outside my normal
comfort zone. I like working with the technical aspects of quilt
I started quilting in May 2013. I am self-taught,
learned from quilting books and magazines, jumped in with both feet,
and haven't looked back. I love being able to create using fabric,
designing patterns, and testing other designers patterns.
I started quilting in 2012 on a whim and
quickly became addicted to the myriad of fabrics available. I haven't
settled on a favorite technique yet, although I'm still trying out
everything that does not involve hand work. Full retirement started
in June 2013, so I have plenty of time to devote to it. I'm slowly
learning free motion quilting since I don't want to spend fabric
money to either have someone else do the quilting or have someone
else complete my projects.
