Hi! I'm Tessa. I'm 33, a military wife and mom of 2 wonderful boys. For years, I have enjoyed making the occasional quilt. I had a Love/hate relationship with my sewing machine (Simplicity American Spirit, I think) but still I persisted. After many fights and even a few tears, I decided that I could do better and we parted ways. I thought it best to split before things got really ugly.
I ordered and received my Brother CS6000i quite recently and so far, I'm pretty happy. It doesn't do embroidery, serging, knitting, cooking or any of the fancy stuff but it'll do for now. If this new machine works out, I plan to upgrade.
I would like to explore different and easy ways to produce pretty quilts for gifts and maybe even a couple to sell.
I tend to lurk a little bit but I'll participate when I can. I will start right now by checking out some of the blocks you all have made
