The Patchwork Rooster
Who I am
My husband and I own a home on two acres in Cleveland Georgia, where I keep 60+ chickens who currently wander the yard and provide us with fresh eggs. I've just begun raising Saxony ducks, whose unique quacking always makes me smile while I'm busy quilting. And if that doesn't keep me busy enough, I now also raise guinea hens and quail! I also keep bees and we enjoy their honey year round.
Top that off with our wonderful guardian dog, Hagrid, and our home is overflowing with activity and good times watching all of the antics going on around us!
Why Use Me?
I have been piecing quilts for years and finally decided to purchase a computerized Gammill longarm and learn to quilt them myself. Once I got the swing of it, I began the fun and challenge of quilting for friends, and eventually customers. I have been longarming since 2017 and have worked on many different types of quilts - some simple edge to edge, and some completely custom. The fun is in helping customers choose a good pattern or patterns, along with thread color, to best fit their quilt and to make their piecing stand out. Better yet is when I get to design a quilt for a customer. And if a customer can't make up their mind about a pattern, I take pictures of their quilt and audition various quilt patterns directly on it. This makes it much easier to see what best suits you! I accept quilts in the mail, quilts people drop off at our home , or I can meet you at the Quilt 'n Kaboodle quilt store in Cleveland (you can shop for your next project while you're there!). I also accept and deliver quilts at the various quilt guilds I belong to in Ball Ground, Clarkesville or Cleveland. Give me a call or send me an email. I'm sure we can work out something convenient for you!
