As you might have guessed, I am a quilter. I started my first quilt in 1986 and I have been quilting ever since. I didn’t have a sewing machine when I first started quilting so that first quilt was completely hand pieced and hand quilted. It isn’t very densely quilted and it doesn’t hang perfectly straight but the main thing at the time was that I FINISHED IT!!
Not long after that my husband gave me a sewing machine, a Viking 400. It has been a great machine and I still use it today.
In 2005 I decided to take the plunge and I purchased a longarm quilting machine; a Prodigy. The longarm machine makes the quilting on a large quilt so much more professional and so much more fun!!
After I learned how to run my new quilting machine I started up my quilting business, Contemporary Traditions. I offer the services of quilting and binding and I also accept commissions for custom quilts.
