QUILTER OF THE MONTH

        Meet our July Quilter of the Month - Marie Hunt.


 Her mom taught her to sew as a kid and when a classmate made a quilt in Home Ec class, she became very interested. She took a beginning quilting class from The Quiltmaker's Shoppe from our very own Carol to learn tips and tricks and has been hooked ever since!


 Marie says she likes a variety of fabrics but uses Reproductions for a "go-to" She has also been using Batiks more lately.


 Marie's favorite ruler is either Quilters Select or Creative Grids. Her favorite notion is Jack the Ripper by Clover but any Clover notion is good.  


Tea for Two Designs, Doug Leko and Atkinson Designs are some of Marie's favorite or "go to" designers/patterns. She usually does piecing but recently has tried her hand at paper piecing.


When asked where she gets her inspiration for her quilts - this is what Marie said "I enjoy listening to different quilt designers to see what they are making, watching You Tube and of course visiting quilt shops."
