I started quilting in 1991 and have made a number of traditional quilts in the last 20+ years. Recently, my sister got me involved in the India Modern Quilt Guild which dragged me out of a rut and sent me on my way to the discovery of modern quilting. I have not looked back since then. I am a retired IT professional but it had not occurred to me that blogging was the way to go to share my work and techniques with other quilters. This has opened up a whole new avenue to put to work all the skills I had been building during my working life. Three useful interests have been ignited by joining the IMQG - my interest in quilting was revived, spurred by the monthly challenges and charity block of the month; my blogging skills are improving as I try to keep my blog updated; and I’ve learned to use my digital camera to document the progress of my quilts.
