How I "met" Tonya.
Well. I'd just started quilting and I knew I wouldn't be able to make seams and points match, let alone quilt, and I was in despair.
I surfed the internet about hand quilting and found her tutorial about quilting without a hoop. Then I came across the quilt that changed my life.
Tonya pushed me, persuaded me, cajoled me, held my hand and finally I jumped.
This was the result.
Not brilliant, but then again not bad for a first effort, considering it was machine pieced on a Singer hand crank!
Stayed tuned for more Tonya inspired quilts as the day draws closer.
