I deeply enjoy the creative process & have been making art in many different media for most of my life. Sometimes it's hard to get others to see the 'granny' stereotype for sewing and quilting is all wrong, but I don't mind being dorky, super crafty, and occasionally called Mini-Martha (minus the jail time). I’m a computer project manager nerd who fell in love with fabric and all things crafty ... and food. So it's techy stuff by day, life smooshed all around and sewing when I can fit it in!
After getting my first sewing machine at 12 years old, I have mostly self taught myself the quilting techniques I use today, but have also attended various quilting classes to learn from the masters. I am constantly seeking new styles & innovative ways to utilize existing sewing methods to enhance my work via books & courses. Rather than take the traditional route of quilting designs, my modern appreciation of color & texture lead me to art quilting which I have used in many different ways to create quilts, table runners, postcards, and more. My work reflects my view of life as well as my love of fabric.
My blog is the place where I want to share my happenings, fabric work, photos, recipes and stories about the wonderful world of being Katie - along with 1 husband-man, 2 dogs and 2 cats! You will likely see posts about what projects I’m working on, what I’ve been cooking (and recipes too), and my weekend outings. And of course, all of this will be heavily supported with plenty of photos from my digital nerdy side.
Thanks for looking!
