Hi there! I'm Cyndy. I've been serious about quilting since around 2003. Even though I sewed with my grandmother when I was young, I really didn't start learning good techniques and habits until I started taking some classes and getting some difficult quilts under my belt. I love fabrics with lots of color so I tend to quilt toward the more contemporary spectrum. I am drawn to simple lines and allowing the colors and fabrics to do all the work. I think that is reflected in my work.
After working for years in high stress management jobs, I decided in 2006 that I wanted to make a change and do something I really enjoyed. After exploring a number of small businesses, I kept going back to the idea of the longarm quilting industry. I purchased my APQS Millenium quilting machine in 2007, and I haven't looked back.
Now I spend my days at my home quilting for others and designing and sewing my own quilt patterns. I also lead a group of very gifted quilters that meet monthly and produce some wonderful projects - all of which are donated to various organizations in the area. The group is called Project:Quilt.
One of my strengths I think is the use of scraps. I am always trying to come up with new ways of using them. I teach classes on occasion and I regularly blog about my projects and patterns. I meet so many wonderful people doing what I do and get to see so many beautiful quilts. I feel quite blessed.
I would love to hear from you! You can email me at cynthiabdesigns(at)gmail(dot)com.
