Quilters meet and Greet


Hello Everyone, 
I am thrilled to be participating in Quilter's Meet & Greet, hosted by Benita Skinner of https://www.victorianaquiltdesigns.com/. There will be a chance to win the amazing Great Grand prize package. 
For those of you who are here for the first time, here is a little bit about how I started my quilting journey:
 I am a self-taught seamstress, mostly did sewing out of necessity. I have sewn pillow covers and did a lot of alterations for Mom. I've also sewn baby clothes and pajamas for my children when they were little. Started sewing some of my garments myself, especially Indian clothing like Salwar kameez and saree blouse. Wanting to improve sewing skills, I took Sewing Certification classes with the thread making company “Sulky” and was introduced to quilting and adding embellishments on a practical level.  By volunteering at Ronald McDonald House quilting group, I learned more about quilting and fell in love with the whole process. After taking a couple of quilting classes online at Craftsy, I started quilting traditionally and as an art-form.  I love the simplicity of modern quilts, intricacy of traditional quilt and the creativity of art quilts. I get my inspiration from nature, fellow quilters and quilting blogs and keep my  passion alive by attending a local monthly quilting group called the “Creative Saturday." Here are a few of my favorites.


Pansy - My first original art quilt

This Pansy quilt is one of my favorite quilt. It is the first quilt I designed it from a photo I took. I had such fun making this quilt.
Hibiscus


Black and White quilt

    1. Hi Caroline, Thank you for visiting. My friends are always asking for recipes and I started the blog thinking of posting recipes too. When I cook I always forget to take pictures to post, hence recipes never get posted. So far there is only one recipe posted, without any pictures, of course. Click the recipe tab to check out the recipe.

  49. Hi Jereena! It is a pleasure to read your introduction to us, and to meet you. It looks like you have a real talent for design, color placement and selecting fabrics. Not everyone can! I really think your pansy and hibiscus quilts are beautiful. I didn't know you could volunteer for the Ronald McDonald House quilting group - I didn't even know it existed. I will have to check into that, as my sister received a lot of comfort from then when my nephew was going through treatments. ~smile~ Roseanne
