My quilting interests are quite eclectic, from modern styles to folksy styles, from meticulous paper piecing or hand applique to free-flowing improv construction, and everything in between.
I tend toward large and intricate quilts that take a lot of time and attention, so I am happiest when I have a few projects going at once. Rotational work is most fun for me, where I work on a particular quilt through a given stage and then let it marinate while a different project gets my attention, before coming back to it. Keeps the wind fresh in my sails that way. Sometimes I design my own, and sometimes I enjoy a pattern.
I am also a professional longarm quilter. I specialize in hand-driven custom quilting, but also do pantograph and free-motion work as well. My home is smoke-free, and the studio is strictly pet free.
Lynette, sounds like you have your plate full, with family, school and quilting. Our oldest daughter will graduate in May with her business degree. She has considered pursuing her MBA, but sometimes her plans change from week to week. :0) Our son is a freshman in college, so we're empty nesters. It takes some adjusting. Please thank your husband for his service to our country. (And thank you, too. It always takes sacrifice on the part of the families of military men as well.) Nebraska is wet and rainy this morning. We had a skiff of snow last night, but it melted as soon as it hit the ground. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
