It's Follower Friday again! I hope you are enjoying getting to know a little more about some of Gen X's Quilters. I know I am!

Kathy of Olympia, WA


Occupation: Dedicated Public Servant

Significant Other/Kids/Pets: 3 cats: Angry Bob, Scout, and Sammy Davis Jr. Kitty

# Years Quilting: 2

Hand or machine piecing or quilting: Machine all the way.

How you learned to quilt:
I bought a book about 3 years ago and then gave up when I couldn't really figure out what I needed to do versus what the author seemed to want me to do. I put it away for a year and then finally took a class at my local quilt shop. The instructor was simply wonderful. She was incredibly patient and knew just how to teach. After that class, it's been a bit of trial and error, but I love how I can always go back and get suggestions and support from the locals.

Favorite Completed Project Description:I think that my favorite project will always be the one I'm currently working on. But, my favorite completed project was my third quilt. It was a pattern called Pad Thai and designed by Laura Denison from her Passport Quilt Series. I gave this quilt to my mother and she adores it. As you can see it was a very bright project, and I loved every minute of putting it together. It also gave me confidence in working with bright colors. I need to do another bright one because that was so much fun.



Quilting workstation setup:My workstation is actually my kitchen table. Which means no one gets to eat at the kitchen table when they visit me. I also occasionally use the island in the kitchen for cutting because the light is so good there. Basically, the whole house is my workstation.

I've had a few people make funny faces at me when I tell them I'm a quilter. The usual response is, "What are you, 80?" But, then they see what I do and what my fellow quilters do and that attitude quickly changes to appreciation. I can't describe how much I enjoy quilting - from picking out the patterns and the fabric to slowly putting it together. It's such a challenge and so much fun - I really hope that I am quilting until I am 80.
