The current featured artisan is moi, your lowly guild master. :)
Um...short and sweet...been quilting for about 10 yrs now. Self taught which has helped and hindered me along the way.
I'm now a teacher at a local quilt shop and teach 1-3 classes a quarter. Currently teaching "Grandmother's Flowers Garden" (hand-piecing) and "Trio Strip Quilt" (a basic beginner's class).
Being booked from June to December, I get burnt out with quilts by January. So, I make quilted purses and accessories, baby and toddler items, things for the home, wool-work, etc. Small projects that don't take more than a couple of days (at most) to complete and are not stressful.
So, of course, it's June and I'm already booked through the middle of July. *sigh* But I love it.
I've included pics of 2 of my quilts. A "Grandmother's Flowers Garden" and a Reverse Applique Rag quilt. Also, one of my quilted purses. Three pics are the blog limit. :)
Stop by and check out my shop http://vabeachquilter.artfire.com sometime. There's something for everyone.
