Recent customer quilts
I have a heavy work schedule. I like to be busy and I like working from home. Being booked 12 weeks out is a great feeling of job security. I have been booked out further, but believe me, as long as I am not looking at blank weeks at the end of this month, I am grateful.
I have some very loyal customers and I love each of them dearly. I get to meet some of the most talented creative people in my neck of the woods and I am truly amazed at the range of their abilities.
There are so many quilts to be made and so little time. Even if I never bought another piece of fabric I would have enough on hand to last me well into my 70’s. Because I spend so many of my days quilting, that pile of fabric will probably last well into my 80’s. There is no danger of me not doing my share to keep the fabric sellers in business; simply because the fabric designers will not stop creating more lovely fabric I must have..
Now I will get back to my point. I do make a lot of quilts and have been accused more than once of being an over achiever. There are many quilts I will never attempt to do, not for lack of time but for lack of patience, talent and the knowledge that someone else will do them and bring them to me to quilt.
One of the perks to being a professional machine quilter is the fact I get to touch, see, ogle, drool over and handle so many lovely works of art and I do not have to take the time to create them. I have said this before and I will say it again; this is the best job EVER.
