Hello to all of you hopping along from the Let's Get Acquainted blog hop! I am so happy to introduce you to myself and my blog!
I'm Jess - an interior designer turned homemaker and quilter. I started on my quilting journey just a bit over a year ago. I got my machine (a basic Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118) and began piecing a quilt for my guest room. After I had finished that quilt, I got involved in my local guild, began collecting fabric and spending my free time making hand sewn goodness.

I also love scrappy projects. I really enjoy taking the leftovers from old projects and making them into something unexpected.
I always like having a few projects going on. Right now, I'm working on a Retro Flowers quilt, my first commissioned quilt, my scrappy quilt-as-you-go (below left), and my hand stitched Modern Medallion quilt (below right). I like moving back and forth from projects in various stages, but nothing beats a finish!
When I'm not sewing, I really love to cook and I love the outdoors. I often go hiking with my husband and our pup, Fleury (a sneaky little pup with a sarcastic sense of humor). Speaking of the fluff ball, I recently made him a bed and since y'all asked for one, I also created a tutorial on how to do it, so stop by again next week to check that out, won't you? Fleury asks that if you make one for your puppy, that all thank you correspondence be sent to him (and if you are feeling like sending a little something, he prefers liver treats).
You can find me on flickr, threadbias, and bloglovin'.
