Look out world here comes Colleen

Monday, March 26th, 2012

This is scary and exciting all at the same time. Thanks to Gloria and Derry at Gloderworks I am now able to blog with the world. Yippee!

I am Colleen Granger and I am a quilter. I also design and publish quilting patterns, and have written three books. My best days include being with my family and friends OR being with my friends and fabric.  I don’t have to sew, I just need fabric bonding time. I am a fabric-aholic and I don’t believe that there is a cure. Fabric and quilting are my life and livelihood as I quilt for other people on my Gammill long arm quilting machine. It is always fun and challenging.

I also teach, which is another obsession, I love to share my patterns, techniques, and ideas with others. It is great to teach because I always learn something new. I just spent a lovely day teaching a Circle Quilts (my latest book) class for the Diablo Valley Quilters at Thimblecreek Quilt Shop in Concord, California. We had a ton of fun and by then end of the day everyone was well on their way to a finished project. Just can’t beat a successful day.

I hope that you will check back to see what is going on and to leave a comment or two. Take care and have fun, because if you are not having fun then you should find something else to do.
