My name is Erica. I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 wonderful kids and I recently moved from Los Angeles to San Diego. I love Southern California and the weather, lifestyle, and sunshine make an impact on my quilts.
I used a sewing machine for the first time in January 2010 and made my first quilt in April of 2010.
Quilting gives me a sense of purpose and an outlet for creativity. It is extremely relaxing and therapeutic and being able to give handmade gifts brings me a lot of joy.
Many of my quilts have been given as gifts, some to charity, and many more are scattered throughout my house.
I sew on a Janome 6600p and I highly recommend it. Most of my projects are made with Aurifil 50wt cotton thread. I buy my fabric from all over the place. It is amazing how much fabric you can collect in three years :) If you are interested in where I found a particular fabric, I will do my best to let you know.
I hope that you enjoy the projects that I document here. Please let me know if you have any questions!
