Red Star Quilts
Red Star Quilts is a quilting blog that will have just about everything quilting, but my main speciality are t-shirt quilts.
Fifteen years ago my genetically instilled sewing gene kicked in, much to my family's amazement. My parents owned and operated a local upholstery shop, my Grandma and Mom owned and operated the local fabric store for years, and my other Grandma churned out quilts by the cartload. When I finally decided to start sewing, I think there were rumblings of shock in our family. For years I had turned my nose up to sewing. My penchant for quilts forced me to take another look at the family craft. Once I started sewing, I finally understood why my Mom and Dad could sit at a sewing machine all day. The gene had finally kicked in.
Over the years I have created quilts, wall-hangings, table runners, and even mug rugs. My favorite projects are the t-shirt quilts I make. After a few years of people asking me to make a t-shirt quilt for them, I decided that I might take this out on the road. This is where I hope to share with you all my creations that hopefully will allow you to choose me to create your own t-shirt quilt.
This blog is for non-quilters and quilters alike! If you don't sew, that is okay! Contact me about creating a specialized t-shirt quilt for you. Quilters, this is where we can share tips and ideas.
I hope you will all enjoy the site!
