Who inspired you to get started?
The one who actually inspired me to stop reading and get quilting was Dana from Old Red Barn Quilt Co. I joined a quilt along that Dana hosted in 2009. She is so much fun and she made the whole process seem very doable. I created a Flickr account, started a blog and I even tried free motion quilting. The support, inspiration and excitement that came from that group hooked me immediately. I continued on for two more rounds with the same group and made this quilt and this quilt.
Please describe your first quilt (Include a picture if you have it).

What guild job do you hold and why did you volunteer for that position?
Joking aside, the modern quilt guild movement is so exciting right now. I love sharing what I know and getting people involved. It's also a great way to meet the local quilters.

What is your favorite block pattern?
There are so many techniques I haven’t even tried yet. I’d love to use a long arm quilting machine next.
