It's Follower Friday! Here's Paige. She just posted over on her blog that she'll be away for a little while since she's getting MARRIED in 2 weeks! Congrats Paige!


Paige of Kingston, GA


Occupation: Certified Public Accountant (ew! but I've got to fund my fabric stash somehow)


Significant Other/Kids/Pets: 3 dogs/assistant quilters & 1 hubby-to-be


# Years Quilting: 6ish.

Side note: I have a BFA in Fine Art with a concentration in painting. When I told my professor I wanted to paint with fabric instead of paint and a brush, he told me to go for it. And I've been quilting ever since.


Hand or machine piecing/quilting: Machine for the most part, although I recently took a "Big Stitch" hand quilting class at my LQS and really loved it!


How you learned to quilt: I'm totally self-taught but I have had so much inspiration and encouragement from other amazing quilters all over the world.


Favorite project: The first quilt I ever successfully machine quilted. I destroyed a few getting there, so when I finally completely and totally made a lap-sized quilt from start to finish, I was oh so proud. I don't even like the design of it but I still tear up everytime I look at it. :)


Other interests: When my fiance is able to rip my hands off my sewing machine, we like to pack up a cooler, the dogs and our friends and head out on the lake. I also have an obsession with photography.
