I thought I'd do a little introduction post about myself... I know I have a little tiny 'About Me' section on my blog, but that hardly cuts it, no? Hopefully you'll all join in and talk a little bit about yourself, about your quilting, and whatever else you feel like sharing :)
So I was born in Singapore, moved to Australia when I was 17 to study, and kind of forgot to leave. I did move back to Singapore for about 4 years to work and be with my family, then back to Australia. And after I moved back to Australia in 2005, I got this crazy idea to go visit a friend in the States, which is when I met my husband. I moved to CT in 2007, we got married, bought a house and adopted two cats.
I took up quilting by sheer accident. Last May for some reason I thought to make my MIL a quilted table runner. I did my research, went to the fabric store and got what I needed, made a table runner. Which led to baby quilts. Which led to 56 finished projects (40 of which were baby and large quilts) in 8 months. Yeah, I know. All I can say is, I'm glad I found something that I really love to do.
As for sources of inspiration, I'd say they are mainly Denyse Schmidt's and Suzuko Koseki's work. I love modern quilting, and I love discovering new colour combinations. And let's not forget all the amazing quilting blogs out there.
I don't know any quilters outside of the virtual realm (although I have a friend who's toying with the idea) so I'm glad to have my blog and this bee to share my quilting with. I may be new to it but I honestly can't remember life without quilting now. I know many of you can attest to that :)
Anyway I urge you to talk a little about yourselves here... I hope if we get to know each other better, we'll work together better too! I'm so excited that our bee has started, and I can't wait to see all the quilts we'll make together!!
P/S: Rebekah, I received your fabric today and I'm SO excited to begin your block!
