Hi there and welcome to my blog! I hope you'll get comfy and stay a while, there's plenty to see :)
My name is Elizabeth Dackson and I am a total fabric-a-holic and admitted fabric geek! After years of working in hospitals teaching doctors and medical professionals how to use technology in their lectures and talks, I found myself searching for a hobby after my son was born, and I found fabric and fell in love. Now, I follow fabric and designers the way others follow celebrity gossip. I am a stay-at-home mom to a Lego-obsessed five year old little boy, married to my college sweetheart and dog mom to a very neurotic beagle mutt named Sam who likes to eat blinds.
Currently, I design quilt patterns and enjoy quilting as a creative outlet as well. I am also a stay-at-home mom to one very curious preschooler and wife to a workaholic husband. I learned to sew in 2010, after picking up a sewing machine on a whim at Jo-Ann's, in an attempt to cultivate a new hobby. Little did I know I'd be fueling a full-on addiction! I love all things fabric, but I gravitate most to making quilts.
My work has been seen in Quilt magazine, Quiltmaker, International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Quilts from 100 Blocks, Modern Quilts Unlimited, Fat Quarterly, Moda Bake Shop and Sew Mama Sew.
I own two sewing machines, a Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 835 and a Juki TL-98E. I do all of my piecing and free-motion quilting on these machines.
Just learning to quilt, or looking to expand your skills? Check out my free tutorials and patterns, for a wide variety quilts and projects. I'm also running a block of the month subscription club this year focused on paper pieced stars called the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club, and you're never too late to join!
Here's a link to see some of my finished quilts, which will tell you more about me as a quilter than I could possibly do here!
