Introducing ~ Rebecca

on February 16 | in Contributors | by | with 31 Comments

From Beth: Rebecca from Chasing Cottons has a beautiful pillow pattern for you to try next. Before you take a look at the tutorial, enjoy these images of some of Rebecca’s quilts, and take a look around Chasing Cottons. Rebecca also recently did an interview on Amy’s Creative Side, where you can learn more about her love of sewing and see more of her quilt designs.

From Rebecca: Thank you so much Sew,Mama,Sew! for having me on your blog today. Its so nice to be able to give a little back to blog land and all of the wonderful inspiration I have found out there…

I have always loved creating things… Three Years ago I got free tickets to a craft show and I was so overwhelmed by the amazing fabrics that were available. It was like scrapbook paper, only so much better! My grandmother sewed all her life, and my mum a little, so perhaps its in my blood. But since attending that craft show a few years ago I think I have sewed nearly every day since. I have made a few little projects here and there. I am always searching the net to find something new to make… Something to inspire me.

I have a crazy obsession with fabric. I’m a quilt girl; it’s my thing. I just love them. Everything about them, from the fabric, to designing a quilt, sewing the fabric, quilting… I LOVE hand quilting.

Sewing relaxes me, keeps me sane, helps me heal and makes me happy. Seven months ago I started my blog Chasing Cottons, started selling my patterns and I have loved every minute of it!
