Who Inspired You?

My Granny Ida is the reason I quilt today and love it so!


Who inspired you to start quilting or crafting?

I had no one in my family interested in quilting I was inspired by seeing quilts and not being able to afford to buy one years ago and though I can make one and did! and have been making them ever since.

My Grandmother was an awesome seamstress. She bought me my first quilting book, although it took years before I actually made one. She was definitely very inspiring!

My Nanny, (grandmother) was also my inspiration. She was an artist in oils and by the time I was 2 had a paint brush in my hands. She passed away at the age of 104 just two years ago.

My grandmother was the one who taught me to quilt, too. She was an avid quilter and made over 100 quilts that we know of in her lifetime. She was a hand-piecer and quilter, and was a fanatic when it came to 10-stitches-to-an-inch. I don't know how many times she made me rip out a seam because it didn't have 10 stitches in it. Her idea was to give us a stack of 1-1/2" squares from her scraps and make us stitch them together into little quilts for our dolls. I sure wish she was still with us.

one of my earliest memories was playing under the "tent" my grandmother and mother had put up in the living room in front of the fireplace.

It was actually a quilt in a frame, I did not understand at the time. But I loved watching their hands work magic underneath the tent.

While my mother, grandmother & aunts taught me a lot about sewing & handwork, none of them quilted. A girlfriend and I took a class in the 90s to learn to quilt at a local store. I made a king sized quilt completely by hand - a feat I doubt I will ever accomplish again!
