Introducing ~ Kelly

on February 3 | in Contributors | by | with 13 Comments

Kelly from kelbysews jumped into sewing in a big way. In just two years she has fallen in love with fabric and sewing; check out this incredible mosaic of quilts she completed in 2011! Kelly joins us next for a really sweet True Love project. You’re really going to love it! While you wait, take a peek at Kelly’s shop, where she sells her quilts, bags, patterns and more.

Kelly is a mom of two boys who taught herself to sew in January 2010 while watching dust gather on her law degree. Now she has a serious fabric addiction that tests the limits of her shelves and her husband’s patience! She spends her days doing the mommy gig and her evenings sewing. Every once in a while she might actually clean the house, but no one holds their breath.

Image: “Wonky Mini Quilt” measures 12″x20″. Kelly hand stitched around three of the stars with size 8 pearl, then stitched in the ditch around other stars.
