I always seem to have a gigantic debate going in my head...machine quilt vs hand quilt.
I like the idea of hand quilting very much. Mostly because I do everything else by hand so it seems a logical choice. BUT I have tried it and tried it and it is SLOW and PAINFUL. Plus, I am loving how artistic free motion quilting has become.
This summer I decided to practice my free motion quilting a little. I made myself a quilt sandwiches and a couple times a week I just sit down and "doodle". It's pretty fun and actually very relaxing.
The last several months have been a bit of a whirlwind for me as far as jobs go. I really do think I am the luckiest girl in the world some days. I get to hang out with some of my favorite people and write about quilts. Up until last fall I was an editor for McCall's Quilting. In November I switched to a video content position that culminated in hosting Marsha McCloskey at our Golden, CO video studio.
Now I am back to magazines and am the new associate editor of Quiltmaker magazine! SWOON!
