Recent Happenings

 

I have been away from my quilt studio recently along with anything remotely related to today’s communications.  I only feel it is fair that along with my long arm quilting that I share with you some of the beauty of the great state of Alaska.  While out in the wilderness, I enjoyed picking wild blueberries, sitting back to enjoying the scenery and harvesting my very first Caribou.  My hobbies are of a unique blend such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, sewing, quilting, crafting, motorcycle riding and football.  I am the third daughter and my father’s tomboy, so I grew up spending much of my time with my dad, uncles and the guys.  My mother took every opportunity to make sure that I received enough girl time to understand and learn how to be feminine when necessary.  So to sum it up…I enjoy a bit of both worlds.  Here are some photos of my recent happenings:

1st Stack n Whack quilt

This is where my Alaska quilting got its start with this Stack n Whack quilt.  My friends Anisa and Jodie taught me how to tear (yes, I said tear it is part of the stack n whack process) and then cut the pieces.  I sewed the pieces together on my Brother sewing machine that I brought with me from PA a few years earlier.  I did the quilting on that same machine using a Stitch-in-the-Ditch style and my addiction to this new type of creativity began.
