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.
