I am a bear maker, pattern designer, and in general I can figure how to make what ever I need...
which is funny cause I can't read other patterns to save my life! I have had family, friends and customers give me patterns to make for them, and I don't mind, I usually learn something new.
But I struggle to read them, and usually look it over - read it - then make it my own way. No wonder I didn't do well at school, hah hah!
So anyway I am blessed enough to have a lot of great friends, and we tend to trade ideas and tell each other little secrets on how to do things the easy way.
One of my friends is a self taught quilter, love love love her work, her colour choice etc.
So she has decided that I too can learn to quilt, and through her patience and expertise, I am learning to quilt! I think I am finally getting it too! Love it, here is my latest... now don't get too excited you haven't missed much, this is only my third lap quilt, hah hah!
Of course you notice my quality control team had to get into the picture, right?
They make sure we take breaks from sewing to stretch out, like you know, throw a ball, maybe a little walk! Love my furry helpers.
