Follower Friday: Vicki of Sew Inspired

Good Morning!!  Is everyone covered in snow??  We have some, but nothing compared to other parts of the country.  Stay warm! 

Today we have Vicki of Sew Inspired as our featured guest!  I first started following her when I saw her Little Witch quilt that was entered in the Spooky Quilt Contest in the fall.  She has a bunch of really cute doll quilts she's done for the DQSs and many free tutorials (quilting and garment-related) on her blog.  I am always so jealous of those who have picked up the knack for making clothes.  Here's more about her!

Vicki of Kansas City, Kansas side

Occupation: Stay at home mom, aspiring quilt designer and writer

Significant Other/Kids/Pets: My husband and I have been married for 13 years and we have 3 kids. The boys are 10 and 6 and our little girl is 2. We don't have any pets.

# Years Quilting: 13

How you learned to quilt: I learned to quilt partly from the book Quilts, Quilts, Quilts by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes. My neighbor had made some of the quilts from this book and I bought my own copy and made a couple of the quilts from it in my first couple of years quilting. I did a little hand quilting but decided it was too time consuming, so I took a machine quilting class at my LQS to start learning free motion quilting. I also subscribed to a couple of quilting magazines for the first few years after I started quilting and I learned a lot from them, too.

Favorite projects:

It is really hard to pick only two!

I'm going to go with my hen and chicks quilt that I made for DQS8 last year:

DQS8 finish--

and my lavender scrap quilt:

Other interests: reading, sewing clothing, spending time with my family

Workstation setup:

Here's a pic of me sewing my son's cape for the school wax museum yesterday. As far as my sewing station, mostly I sew at the kitchen table and my fabric and patterns are stored in a stack of bins in my daughter's bedroom. I'm planning on setting up a sewing station in my bedroom in the next few months so my girl can have her room to herself and also so we can get it properly furnished for her.

  1. I really like reading your Friday follower posts. I guess I am lucky that I get an entire bedroom as my sewing space.

  2. Thanks for featuring me today, AnneMarie!

  3. I like reading the Friday follower posts, too. My favorite part is seeing their sewing spaces. Thanks for introducing us to some new blogs. I've been following Vicki for a bit, too. Both of you are very clever quilters:-)

  4. Landed here for the first time and was enjoying exploring around. I was surprised to see a familiar face from the KC Modern Quilt Guild. You are so talented Vicki! So nice to learn a little more about your sewing life!
