Marilyn’s first experience with fabric was sewing little dolls by hand, and stuffing them with the fluff from the cottonwood trees when it was flying. In school she took all the sewing classes and did a whole wedding party. Marilyn knew she wanted to be a quilter, but also knew it would be time consuming. As a result, in her last year of work she took a beginner quilting course and that got her started. Inspiration from fellow quilters, and the sheer joy of quilting keep her in her studio for hours.
Our first ever 'Members Only' mystery quilt was a success! Our stats show us that 315 different people accessed the mystery quilt page. Here is a quote from one woman who posted her photo today:
“I had fun and it will be a birthday gift for my Mom, she's 89 in July. I’m more of an art quilter so doing a pieced quilt is a challenge for me. The instructions were well done and easy to follow. –CP from BC”
We plan to bring you a very beautiful ‘Block of the Month” for the next Members-Only project and more up to date information on QUILT BC 2013!
