Our featured Quiltsy Team member today is Kelly Wilbur, whose Etsy shop, Sew Ever After showcases patchwork quilts of all sizes. Take a good look at the beautiful quilting on this modern quilt.
Kelly's charity donation has been to the Skagit Rape Relief Crisis Centre, through the Fidalgo IslandQuilters in Washington State. This quilt guild provides enough donation quilts to this worthy cause so that every child who uses their services gets a quilt of their own to keep. Kids coming to the center are experiencing enough negativity in their young lives, they want each child to know there are adults who care about them. A quilt provides a tangible way of wrapping our arms around them in a hug of love and compassion.
Kelly received her first sewing machine for Christmas when she was 9 years old and she has enjoyed a love affair with sewing ever since. She feels fortunate that she gets to indulge her fabric addiction by working at an independent fabric shop that is filled to the brim with inspiring goods. She made lots of her own clothes for years until she discovered quilting. Now quilts take up most of her machine time but she loves handwork as well. Wool applique', embroidery, & cross stitching keep me busy.
