My journey to
Piecing Makeover began many years ago, well before I even knew I would take it.
My path is littered with failed projects, bumps, bulges, puckers on a quilt
back, fabric that didn't work, wrong cuts, chopped points, wavy borders, lots
of trial and error, and frustration. Despite the problems I encountered, the
pure enjoyment of sewing and making quilts, making
anything, the love of the art, having fabric in my hand, an idea in
my head, and my sewing machine nearby always kept me going.
As my skills and
knowledge increased, so did the quality of my work. As I worked through
problems, I began to ask myself why a book explaining why errors were made and
how to fix them hadn't been created. When I began quilting I didn't have the
time or money to take classes but would have done almost anything to have a
book like I've written. Full of all the stuff I tell new quilters and students
of mine and hear them saying in response, "Wow! Why doesn't anyone just say that?"
So that's what I
created. A book full of tips and tricks to make your work a little better. What
I show you is what works for me. My tricks might not work for you. That's okay.
Figure out what does and make it your own.
