Week #2 Debra from Made of Honor Quilts

Hello fellow 52 fans. 

I’m Debra Jalbert (madeofhonorquilts) and what better way to begin the New Year than reflecting on the past.  The most recent past really as last week I spent some time at the Mancuso World Quilt Show in Orlando Florida, very close to where I live.  I’ll post some pictures and reflections during this week for my time on the blog, gram and twitter (I’ve never tweeted before!)

Just a bit about me, Here are some numbers: I turned 50 last year, married for 27 of them and 2 kiddos (17 and 24). I’m a 23 year quilting veteran but really  year 4 of designing and creating my own work and patterns. I have 2 machines, my workhorse Bernina that is super steady and my newbie APQS Lucey. Luceylou and I have been together almost 1 year and we are still learning about each other.  I’ve entered 4 different shows in the last year, with 4 of 14 quilts juried in, more about that journey later.  

Because quilting IS a journey. 

Post by Debra: Debra lives in Central Florida. She has two kiddos: her oldest son is 24 and will be getting married next year and her daughter is 17, a beautiful Senior in High School. She is on a mission to ONLY design and piece quilts of her own imagination! Visit her at Made of Honor Quilts
