One of my best friends, Amber, had just made her first quilt and she recommended I try it. I loved fabric, I had a basic sewing machine, why not give it a try?
Quilting gave me my spirit back. Learning something new didn't feel like such a burden to me this time. It felt exciting and invigorating. I wanted to keep learning. I wanted to play with color and fabric. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I spent the next year making custom baby quilts for family and friends
This is when the light bulb went on! I could try designing my own quilt patterns. By the end of 2016 I decided I would stop making custom quilts for others. I needed a break and I wanted to make just for fun. So that is what I did, I started making quilts based on basic quilt blocks, HST, Sawtooth Stars, etc. And eventually I designed my first two patterns on graph paper. I just needed to figure out how to make them in a digital format so I could try and sell them. I was so lucky to have found and befriended Emily Dennis of QuiltyLove during this time in my life. I started testing her quilt patterns for her and we just hit it off. She offered to FaceTime with me to show me the basics of Adobe Illustrator so I could make my graphic pattern sketches and math into a real document. And that is how it all began.
