I still have that first quilt and have very fond memories of making it because I was hooked from the first lesson.
|My first Quilt|
I had no idea how much quilting would take over my life. I have made many quilts and done many classes over the years. After about 6 years of following patterns I started to design my own quilts and then the obsession really began.
I have joined the Vic Quilters committee because I am taking on the role of Showcase Coordinator! Yes, I am actually taking on the running of our state quilt show.
At the Vic Quilters Annual General meeting earlier this month I was awarded my Judges Certificate.
Last year I was awarded my teaching certificate.
I have also been a Quilt Appraiser for a number of years. I certainly didn't set out to achieve these things, they just sort of happened along the way.
Quilting has been a wonderful part of my life and I have made many friends over the years. I wonder what my life would have been like if I hadn't gone along to that class 20 years ago?
Bye for now,
