Welcome and come on in to Cooper Street Quilts! I am so glad you are here on this quilting journey with me. I learned to sew from my Nana many years ago, but recently when all my friends started having babies, I thought it was the perfect time to jump in to quilting. After all, what could be better than sending love through a handmade quilt, especially in 2020 when it wasn’t possible to be together in person?
When I first started quilting, to say I was overwhelmed would be an understatement. I have always been a crafty person but there was so much I felt like I did not know. I also hadn’t touched a sewing machine in years and was more than a little rusty. Nevertheless I decided to jump in with both feet and in my first year I made over 50 quilts! Now that I have some experience under my belt, I wanted to share it with all of you so that you can feel that same success and so that you have someone to walk you through the process of getting started on quilting.
