I have a big announcement today. My Etsy Shop is now open!
I started quilting when I was 16. My Grandma Marge and mom had been invited to join an introduction to quilting class taught by one of the ladies in the community. I don't remember if I asked if I could come with them, or just announced that I was going too, but on the first day of quilt class I showed up with a bag full of jewel toned fabrics and a thirst to create beauty.
Although college and graduate school slowed my quilting down a bit, now I piece together new quilts whenever I have a spare hour. I make quilts to relieve stress, as a therapy of sorts that lets me express my artistic creativity while battling the tensions of my professional career.
I will donate 10% of all net income to HOPE worldwide, an international charity with a vision to bring hope and change the lives of the world’s most poor, sick, and suffering. Any additional income, after expenses, will go towards paying off my mountain of student debt.
If you have a baby shower coming up, consider picking out one of these unique and handmade quilts to give. Or a perfect Christmas present, if you want to spoil the favorite girl or woman in your life, these quilts also are perfect lap quilts, perfect to cuddle under while reading a good book.
Check out my shop! And let me know what you think. Thanks!
