How long have you been quilting?
Who or what inspired you to start quilting?
My grandmother had these really cool crazy quilts that I loved as a kid. The kind with lots of cool fabrics (velvet and silk etc) and fancy stitching. They seemed like they were from someone who had a very fancy life. I was very intrigued by them. Fast forward about 40 years and the last election happened four years ago, and I just needed some thing to escape I think into channel myself into a little bit. So I started quilting. And I really love modern and self made patterns.
Tell us about the first quilt you ever made.
Well the first quilt I made was actually many years ago and it was pretty much fabric cut into 5 inch squares and sewn back together. I didn’t actually quilt it I tied it off. And I think it was almost queen-size. And I think it kind of turned me off of quilting LOL.
What is your favorite quilt you’ve ever made?
My favorite is one that I gave my friend Mike and it is a pattern that I made up and it’s sort of a modern blocky tight pattern. He uses it every day and that makes me really happy.

If you won millions in the lottery and had to selfishly spend it on yourself, what would you treat yourself to?

Run at 100. I think, because it would be faster.
