Quilting got into my blood back in the early 1990's when I took a beginners class- hand piecing, hand quilting, scissors and *gasp* cardboard templates. I really enjoyed it- very relaxing and satisfying, but not quick.
After a 2-day workshop from a local dealer I was hooked on longarm quilting! I needed a second job that would be flexible around my "day job" and this would be perfect. That's not to say it has all been easy. I have picked out an insane number of stitches, worked until 2:00 AM to meet a deadline and had to deal with some "creative piecing" by customers. But I learn something new every day, and don't regret my choice for a minute. I have met wonderful people, both in person and online, made friends all over the world, and gotten to work on a variety of quilts that I would never have had the skill or the interest to make for myself.
Like Carmen's Kaffe Fassett quilts...
