My job here at Connecting Threads is to test patterns for accuracy while sewing the projects for our catalog. When the fabrics arrive everyone comes to see and feel (you know us quilters we can't just look) then my work begins. I usually spend 1-2 days cutting fabric, gathering needed supplies and then the sewing begins. I know, you're saying "what a dream job!" I think so too. I like to design my own quilts, love anything pastel, and I especially love appliqué which seems to bring a quilt to life.
