On Being One With Myself
When you quilt as a business, what do you do in your spare time as a hobby? Quilt, of course! While waiting for more fabric to arrive, I took the opportunity to stitch together a couple of baby quilts, for gifts to friends.
These are simple, no pressure quilts - soft, pretty, and meant to be used and loved. Saturday was World Wide Quilting Day and today I understand (in addition to it being the first day of spring) is International Day of Happiness. For me it's all the same, and all about quilting. How Zen.
I'm a quilt and pattern designer, award winning quilt maker, author and teacher. Since 1989, I have published well over 300 quilting patterns in magazines such as McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quilt World, The Canadian Quilter and Quilter's Connection. I have contributed designs to 14 different books and co-authored Canadian Heritage Quilting with Diane Shink.
