One of my best quilty friends, Danielle of Nacho Mama’s Quilt
I think I’m getting addicted to this blogging thing!! I hope I can keep up the pace because it’s been so fun to use this as an outlet for the random things in my head almost every day plus I totally needed another website to check obsessively throughout my commute to and from work. (I’m a little addicted to checking the visitor stats on my new blog, thanks to all 20 of you who have visited me so far!) So today I thought I’d feature one of my best quilty friends, Danielle from Nacho Mama’s Quilt. We met back in 2010 when the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild was just starting, in fact, we both agreed to be board members and help start the guild from scratch. That was a super tough time in my life, I was going through a divorce and realizing that you really can’t plan out your entire life in advance because if you do, it will flip upside down! Well, the formation of the SAMQG was a God-send and so was meeting Danielle. She’s a vibrant person, she’s full of life and experience and she takes amazing pictures! She is a totally kick-you-know-what long arm quilter as well. Just recently, since she has been able to find her solid foundation in San Antionio, her Long Arm quilting talent has started to shine through. She’s also been my life line since my little family picked up and moved to Houston. In fact, she’s from Houston, which makes her all the more awesome! Every time we talk on the phone, what is intended to be a 30 minute conversation turns into a couple of hours and she always seems to be able to make time in her amazingly busy schedule to talk to me. We are partners in “quilty crime” and we love to scheme and plan, even if it never turns into anything, it just helps to have someone to bounce idea off of. Oh and did I mention that she was instrumental in making the SAMQG the amazeballs (had to use that word!) guild that it is today? She took the reigns and did what she does best which is delegate and lead and she made sure that everyone felt welcome and united and it really shows in the guild today (and I’m only a long distance member).
If you are ever in need of long arm services, you should consider Danielle because she is truly an amazing quilter and I’m pretty sure you’ll end up with an awesome new friend along the way.
So tell me, who is your best quilty friend or who has made a significant difference in your quilty life?
