About Heartland Quilting

Heartland Quilting is located on a ranch in Nebraska. My name is Becky and I'm a full time wife and mother of 4. I've been interested in crafting for about 10 years. I started off on my crafting adventure with cross stitching then ventured into crocheting. I've been crocheting for 10 years and have been practicing the art of handquilting since 1993.

The first quilt I made was a Lone Star quilt. I have to giggle about a newbie like me taking on a quilt like that! I went to the library and checked out a book with the pattern. I began to wonder what I was getting myself into as I began to cut out each diamond piece one by one - I was so green I didn't have any idea what a rotary cutter was! But wait, it gets even better. I had such a time trying to sew the strips together with the sewing machine that I finally ended up piecing the majority of the quilt together by hand. As I got closer to the end of the piecing process I was finally adept enough to finish with the sewing machine. This is a picture of my
First Quilt.

The first arduous process of making my first quilt birthed my love for handquilting. I must admit though that piecing a quilt together is not my favorite part. I much prefer taking a quilt top, putting it together with the backing and batting then quilting it by hand which is why I enjoy finishing quilts others have created.

At the time of this writting (06/21/01) I have hand quilted about 32 quilts since I began quilting. I have taken pictures of several of the quilts I did. Unfortunately, I didn't have a very good camera so they don't scan very well. I'm hoping that the pictures I take of the quilts I'm working on now will come out better as I have a digital camera.

I'd like to thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your look around and find a little something to take away with you. If you have any questions, comments/suggestions feel free to drop me an
e-mail.
