We all wish we had one, love the one that we have, or yearn to make one. The pride and passion that I felt after finishing my first quilt are still in my heart. I wanted to bring that feeling to others and show them that they too could share in this accomplishment and pride of making a handmade quilt from the heart.
I had decided that the quilt patterns were too complicated and intimidating for me. Therefore, if I could write and describe this "new to me" technique of using an "On Point" fusible grid in a way that I would understand, I could sell it to others thinking the same way as myself. We are so busy in our lives, yet we still yearn to give homemade gifts.
My company will continue to write patterns that will make the non-quilter a believer in themselves and give the traditional quilter a beautiful quilt that is finished in a fraction of the time of a pieced quilt. What matters most is the pride and accomplishment of finishing a project and feeling a passion while you are doing it.
Little did I know that my passion for writing, teaching, and traveling to share with others was so strong that it changed my life.
