Meet this Week’s Guest Judge – Ann of Renegade Quilter

I am happy to be introducing you to Ann of RenegadeQuilter.  I discovered Ann on twitter and was very happy when she agreed to be a guest judge for this week’s Project QUILTING challenge.  And now, here’s Ann to tell you about herself (and as I read it, I see we have much in common in our quilting methods!):

 

My name is Ann and I blog over at Renegade Quilter. I have only been blogging since November of 2009 and I am loving it. I have been sewing since I was a little girl. My mom made my clothes when I was young and I use to make stuff with all of the scraps. My mom taught me how to make garments, however, the rest of the sewing stuff I taught myself through trial and error. My first quilt I ever made was made out of old drapery fabric samples and my mom still has it today.

Over the years I have learned how to make home decor items as well as hand bags which I sell at a local artisan barn and I make custom order bags as well.

So far I haven’t really ventured to far into designing quilts. I tend to take a pattern and then tweak it as needed usually because of some crazy error that I made either in fabric calculations or a cutting error. That is why I refer to myself as the Renegade Quilter. I really don’t follow the ‘rules’ or ‘instructions’ when I create something. If I make a mistake I turn it into an opportunity to create something wonderful.

I am involved with a couple online quilting bees and I am lucky to have a small quilting group of friends that I do quilting related stuff with. Such as quilt camps, annual trips to Sisters, OR for the outdoor quilt show and of course fabric shopping.

I wish I could say that I make a living from sewing but I don’t. It is just a hobby that I have and happen to love.

Thanks to Kim for having me be a judge. I am looking forward to the entries.
