Updated: DATE – August 7, 2018

1. My first name: Vel

2. Birthday May 23rd

3. My favorite color(s) to make quilts: I like all colors

4. Colors I'll never use: I believe even drab colors look good with a contrasting bright color with it.

5. My favorite Style(s) of fabric: Don’t have a favorite

6. Fabric style(s) I don't like: Not fussy on this either

7. Quilt pattern I would like to have: Like trying new things

8. Do you applique by Hand or Machine? Always machine

9. How to you quilt your projects? Mostly with my own machine, but sometimes I have done quilting by hand.

10. My favorite candy: No candy for this gal!

11. Other things I like to do in my spare time: Dancing with hubby and also going fishing with him. Started joining an exercise program including learning yoga this summer.

12. My pets: “Willy” my 12 year old Beagle. (spoiled, of course)

13. Things I like to collect: Nothing!!

14. ALLERGY ALERTS: Nothing

15. My little wish list: I like when people share their old magazines

16. do you like homemade gifts: always!

17. do you mind re-gifted items (ex. FQ's made from someone's stash,
already read books, used patterns, used notions) I think this is a wonderful idea to share things that maybe didn’t fit your needs.

18. my favorite places to use gift cards (ex. quilt shops, food places, etc): I always like JoAnn’s and Walmart (wish our store in our town had a fabric department, though)

19. It’s a little known fact that I: Used to have my own embroidery business in my home for about 7 – 8 years. Learned a lot in that time.

20. Other pertinent information: Most important is that my husband an I are full time RV’ers and I do not have a sewing room or a “stash”. Very limited storage. It forces me to be very organized and neat as I have to clean up my sewing area at the end of each day.
Also I have gained so much enjoyment from sewing with my church ladies making quilts/comforters for sending to Lutheran World Relief
All the fabric is donated by church members, so we just gather up a stack and stitch away.

21. Colors around my house/ actually my RV: Neutral with beige, Cream, brown and black. My quilts and projects add the colors to my life.

22. Do you currently subscribe to any quilt magazines? If so, which ones.. and what's your favorite: Not anymore. With our life style it’s just not a good idea. That’s why I enjoy when others will share their old magazine. Or I pick them up at our local thrift shop from time to time.
