I read absolutely EVERY comment I receive...over a hundred every day. Each comment means the world to me and I thank you for all of them. When I have extra time at work or on my day off, I try to click on the links attached to the comments. Well, I stumbled upon a wonderful blog and more over a wonderful story.
My new friend is Geta...from the blog Geta's Quilting studio.
Geta is from Romania and is an amazing quilter...ok, amazing doesn't even begin to describe her. I could have a post a mile long about her, but I'll just share a little and let you enjoy her blog and website on your own.
This is a post I'm doing on my own, with permission from Geta to use her pictures. She did not pay me as a sponsor of my blog...I am just so thrilled to share her story and what a story it is.
Geta's quilting life is one of dreams to be sure. Her story takes her from not even knowing what quilting is in her country of Romania, to having 2 quilts in the Houston Quilt Festival!!!
You MUST CLICK HERE to read her story on how she started her quilting journey...self taught in a country with no quilt shops!! She learned from the internet and even that was an obstacle in the beginning. She had to go to an internet cafe to use the computer. I am just in awe of this story...I think it will stick with me forever.
Geta is also a published author of a book on trapunto quilts...
Here are some from her collection.
Here are some of her quilts...
She even sews hexagons...my favorite!! Her quilt is much further along than my poor quilt!! She's my new inspiration.
I hope you have a chance to visit Geta...CLICK HERE for her blog and CLICK HERE for her amazing website where you can buy download her amazing patterns she designs herself. These are just a few.
Thank you Geta for letting me share your story!!
