Okay so that is the business part, on to the fun part.
Who among us cannot say we live the quilting life or at least dream of the quilt life.
Sherri is a gentle giant working alongside so many other people.
She has sewn for many people, set-up quilt booths, designed contests &
events & challenges, organized Schnibbles parades,
So I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to hear
that she was going to share some of this talent
on the pages of her very own book appropriately titled,
A Quilting Life.
The projects and inspiration in this book range from pillows, table runners, totes, wall hangings, so there is a project for literally every aspect of your home.
One of my favorite projects from this book is the Mod Runner.
Our assignment for this blog hop is to tell a little bit about our quilting life.
My quilting life began in 1980 and there is not much of my life that did not involve quilting. I am also lucky enough to have a job doing something I am passionate about. Did I say passionate, maybe I meant obsessed.
Quilting is my life, I had a dream once that I got called into the Principal's office because my son called someone a fat quarter. I did get called in at a later date for him looking up a girl's skirt on the playground.
When I worked and taught at a quilt store, sometimes my students would call my home asking quilting questions. My family was comfortable thinking they could answer. If they were asked, about how much yardage should they buy? The standard answer was, "I think 1/2 yard would be plenty."
Quilting is my life,
if my grown son uses my supplies to make his dog a Dallas Cowboy super bowl outfit.
I once was blamed for our foundation issues.
Well after all my fabric stash was on that side of the house.
Quilting is my life.....If I use my children for human quilt hangers.
Do you let people use your good scissors to cut paper? What about using a rotary cutter to cut pizza? you know who you are... Quilting is my life.
If all your Christmas stocking are made from
quilts, then quilting could be your life.
When I show any of my quilts to my crew, they always say, " Is that a log cabin pattern?"
There is nothing better than sharing the craft with the next generation.
Quilting is my life.
Sherri's grandmother shared it with her and I hope you have the opportunity to share your quilting life.
Leave a comment and let me know how one of our family members has used your quilting supplies to win one of Sherri's books. I will also throw in a few of my favorite charm packs. The winner will be announced on the 14th.
