What has quilting taught you about yourself? I may be more creative than I thought.
Karen’s STASH AND SEWING SPACE

It has grown all by itself! Very colorful.
Describe your sewing space and what you like about it. I recently moved my sewing things into another room. It’s so nice to be able to spread out more!
Do you belong to a quilt guild?
Yes, I belong to the Capital Area Modern Quilt Guild in Camp Hill, PA for about 9 years.
Where do you find inspiration for your quilting? From Rebecca Bryan, nature and looking at other modern quilts at quilt shows.
What story from your life would help other people get to know you? I like to know the reasons behind certain philosophies, mostly on my spiritual journey. I’m always asking why.
When you aren’t quilting, what interests do you enjoy? Traveling, reading and doing social justice work, music, and most of all, being with my 4 grandchildren.
