The 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge - Introduction

Hello!  My name is Suzy Webster.  I've been quilting since I was eight years old and it is definitely a passion of mine.  I've published one book and self published two others.  When I go for a few days with no sewing I start to get cranky! 

My first book was based on the embroidery traditions of my heritage, Hungary.  It was so fun to turn the embroidery into applique patterns.

My other two books are self-published book on different free motion quilting filler patterns.  Click here if you're interested in ordering a copy!

I've done Cheryl's challenge once before a few years ago and I'm excited to get writing.  Be sure to check back daily to see what I'm up to.

My favorite parts of quilting are Applique,

Cutting using my GO! Big Cutter (I am a Accuquilt GO Getter!).  It's such a time saver and really helps my tendinitis stay calm.

Free Motion Quilting (I am addicted to feathers.  You can never have enough),

and Paper Piecing and English Paper Piecing (Hexies forever!).

I've been an Ambassador for Island Batiks the last four years.  Batiks are my favorite fabrics to work with though I do like playing with silk and leather once in a while for fun.

This quilt hung in an exhibit in the National Quilt Museum for three months last year.  It was so exciting!  It has all sorts of fun black fabrics like leather, taffeta, silk, and velvet as well as cotton.

I try to blog two-three days a week normally and I have a Facebook Group called Machine Applique Adventures where I post what I'm working on, links to all my blog posts, inspiration, and other fun quilting related topics.  Come join us!

I hope you get to quilt today!
