    My amazing quilting wife from Canada

    When she bought her first sewing machine, i was happy she found a hobby. Within no time i saw her creativity. I was amazed with what she was putting together and designing as she graduated to quilting. She basically learned online and is self taught. The patience she has to hand sew hexies, paper piecing and bindings is crazy. It makes me happy to see her joy when working in her quilting room. I remodelled her space as a surprise a couple years ago to inspire her more. She has only ever given away her art work and it makes her happy to see her quilts being used. She also enjoys seeing comments on her Instagram, i think it motivates her to create and design. Sincerely HusbandofQuilter

    Send here here! There are lots of us Canadians on this board who would love to welcome her along with all the other members.

    What a kind gesture for you to come on to try to help her out.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome to your wife to quilting and the Board. How nice that you are supportive to this creative outlet. My husband also loves to encourage me in this endeavor! It means a lot. We'd love to see a quilt before she gifts it to a loved one.
