A quilting friend of mine, Karen Williamson, nanagirlquilts.blogspot.com, has been encouraging me to start my blog. So today is the day! Vintage Blooms Quilt Designs has blossomed! I am mostly a self taught beginner quilter. I have taken classes from my local quilt shop, Front Porch Quilt Shoppe, www.frontporchquiltshoppe.com, and taken classes at quilting shows and retreats that I have attended the past few years. I still consider myself a beginner even though I have made many quilts, because I am always open to try new techniques and new designs. I have taught classes at Front Porch Quilt Shoppe and taught at my local quilt Guilds.
My loves are bunnies, stitching quilts and wool, sunflowers and vintage blooms!
I am currently in the process of having my very first pattern printed! I have designed and created my very first pattern, with the encouragement of my quilting friend, Cyndi Farley and my niece Jan Cooper, also a quilter and local designer. Jan has just printed her first two quilt patterns too!
I hope to have the pattern printed and available soon!
