Quilting is something I do to relax and clear my mind. At the same time, I am able to get my creative juices flowing through this art form. Over the years, I have had people ask me if I could teach them how to do hand pieced and hand quilting. Sadly, my plate is usually too full to give the time which would be needed to teach someone. In today's world, social media will give me the ability to teach other people how to quilt, which will ensure that future generations will be able to quilt by hand too.
For me, the reason I started hand quilting instead of machine quilting was that I could just quickly stuff everything in a bag when I needed to get up and take care of my six kids. I had six kids in seven years so I had to make things easy to clean up, quickly. I am self taught so these are techniques that have worked for me. The great thing about most types of art forms is the ability to create specifically to your needs and wants. Over the years, when I have been stuck on how to do things, I have relied on YouTube videos. Sadly, hand piecing and hand quilting are not easy to find. I will be providing videos that are geared specifically to hand piecing and hand quilting. If you are ever stuck on something, let me know and I am sure we can brainstorm and come up with a solution.
Sometime in the future, I will be able to be making quilts for cribs, dolls, and doll houses. You will be able to buy them straight from this site and other social media sites. I will also take custom orders for other types of quilts but keep in mind these are all homemade so if it is for a special occasion, you will need to make sure there's plenty of time allotted.
