I’m not sure what category of quilter I would consider myself to be. I enjoy making all types of quilts, but I prefer to make adorable baby sized or lap sized ones so that they are manageable and I quilt on my Bernina. I love the traditional piecing but I’m slowly getting use to the negative space in the modern quilting as well and I learned EPP a few months ago and I was shocked with how much I liked it.

I took 3rd place and this was my first landscape quilt!
I’m the type of person who has a really good time planning things, except when it comes to quilts. I’m more of a “buy the pretty fabric now and maybe use it later” than someone who finds the pattern first and then shops. I also do a lot of my quilt designing by the seat of my pants and just let them take on their own design. This can make my quilting a lot of fun, but it can also be extremely frustrating.

I am a huge fan of traveling and I’m currently working on visiting all of the US National Parks. My hubby and I have most of the western states checked off the list, but we have an Alaska trip planned for next year and I have a west coast trip planned for this fall. We most recently moved to LV from Yellowstone, and don’t plan on being here for more than a few more years, so we consider ourselves nomads.
