Default Love my passion

I'm kind of behind in posting my projects but I have been busy. I have also been working on myself. I had someone say " oh your one of those chubby fun quilters". I know they didn't mean anything mean but that was the beginning of the end of me being the chubby quilter. So between sewing I decided to get healthy so I can quilt longer. I'm 90lbs down and I'm making a quilt out of all my fat jeans! It's easier for me to get on the floor and stage my quilt pieces now too, bonus! Now I'm a happy healthy quilter . Check out what I have been working on.
