Welcome to my Quilting Fabrications blog!

With this blog I would like to discuss all things quilting. I started quilting about 20 years ago and have been sewing for many more. With quilting I found a creative outlet that let me express myself in color and texture in a myriad of ways. After filling my house (and the houses of friends and family) I have decided to take the leap and design quilts as a business.

With this blog I would like to discuss all things quilting. I started quilting about 20 years ago and have been sewing for many more. With quilting I found a creative outlet that let me express myself in color and texture in a myriad of ways. After filling my house (and the houses of friends and family) I have decided to take the leap and design quilts as a business.
 
 
This is a big leap from my working life as a Business Analyst but it somehow feels like I’ve landed in the right place. I am supported in this new venture by my husband, Glen. He has been enthusiastically building my website and publishing my patterns. He is bound to figure in this blog on occasion.

I am also joined, every time I pull out the fabric or start the sewing machine, by my two kittens (10 month old sisters) Coco and Ruby.

 As you can see I am in love with my cats. A day doesn’t go by without them making me laugh. They will feature prominently in this blog.

Bye for now – Leslie
