"I have never liked the quilting part of making quilts and I never felt my projects were “good” enough to spend additional money to subject someone else to quilting for me. I bought a sit-down long arm machine for my 50th birthday in 2020. It was delivered the weekend before everything shut down due to covid. It sat there collecting dust most of the time. The Alphabet Design course encouraged me to set goals of improving my free-motion skills. It’s still not my favorite part of creating but I don’t hate it anymore."

"Once I got over my FEAR of quilting, the Alphabet course helped me reach the goal of expanding my free motion quilting library of go-to designs that I can use. It also taught me how to modify a letter/design to fit what I’m quilting. It also showed how to be more creative when stitching a letter. Since then, I’ve quilted several smaller quilts – all with the intent of planning the FMQ and executing it based on the design. I like to combine simple designs with lots of “O letters (circles)” and lines and ruler work."
