Happy Place

Quilting is my happy place.

Especially now I have my Juki! I’ve never known it to be so easy to quilt.

It’s all so much easier – piecing accurately is a breeze, although I’m still working out how to get the Clearly Perfect Angles to attach in such a way that I don’t have to peel it off every time I change the bobbin, or remove the table to pack up for the night.  The Juki facebook page is awesome, so many lovely people with suggestions to help me out. I haven’t had time to implement them yet, but that’s definitely on the agenda. Not having to mark a diagonal line on every square when I’m making HST’s just makes life so much easier. I know most of the time eyeballing is enough, but once they get bigger than about 3 inches square, I need something – especially if I’ve got loads to do.

Can’t speak highly enough of this machine. It’s a gem. Here is a bit of playing I’ve done ….. I know, the i  in my name looks like an ‘e’.  I’ll keep trying.

Hello world!

This is my first post, on my Brand New Site!

I know that I’m supposed to change that Hello World title to something else, but every time I read that phrase, it makes me smile, so I’m just going to leave it.

I will try to post regularly, I hope you subscribe to either this blog, or my newsletter.

Now that my youngest child is 21, & I’ve been dabbling in a variety of things for a while, I’ve decided I am going to devote my time to building Keep Quilting. Not necessarily bigger, but I want to spread the word about this wonderful quilting world, and help people to find the things they need to make their quilting life easier, more satisfying, and fun!

My other business is MTA Designs. I’m a (very) small web design person. I’m still learning, I admit it. But I am passionate about getting good results, and am not afraid to go back and tweak things when they aren’t quite right – if you’re after the personal touch, I’m there for you. I’ve been so busy working on getting this site going that my MTA site is looking a bit sad – but I’ll head on over to fix that up once I can find the time. It’s just a bit boring…..

Of course, we started this business with the RuleSteady. If you haven’t heard of this amazing tool before, head on over to the store and watch a demo on the main page of my store here. My dearest invented it, and I truly would not have been able to Keep Quilting without it – hence the name of the business!

The RuleSteady was created so you CAN Keep Quilting!
