Week 19: Introducing Diana from Red Delicious Life

Hello and welcome to week 19! My name is Diana Mattoni and I am super excited to be taking over here at 52 Quilters for the week.

So, a bit about me: I am a theater professional, turned quilter living in the Orlando Florida area. Truth be told, my family lives 2 miles behind Magic Kingdom castle. No joke, our house shows up on the mobile park app (The blue dot in the upper left corner is me in my living room):

I did a little bit of sewing in college as a requirement for theater but it wasn't until 2012 that I decided that I wanted to make a quilt that I was hooked. And what I knew that I wanted to do from day one was free motion quilting. Fast forward to today and I now have 4 machines. Ruby is a Baby Lock Symphony and is my good quilting machine; Pearl is a Brother CS6000i and is my travel and backup machine; Bessie is my 25-year-old workhorse Singer, and I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the family, Eliza --

She is a 10-foot Handi Quilter Avanté that I got while I was at QuiltCon back in February. As you can see, she barely fits in my sewing room and is partially sticking into the pocket closet. :)  She and I are still getting to know one another.

Here are a few of my favorite quilts that I've made --

When I'm not taking over 52 Quilters you can find me on my own blog, Red Delicious Life and on Instagram @RedDeliciousLife.  Look for more posts from me later this week! Until then, I'll be posting more on the 52 Quilter's Instagram feed!
