Featuring Zonnah -- A Blogger's Quilt Festival Quilter!

Zonnah has participated in both of the Quilt Festivals!  I asked Zonnah to answer a few questions for us - so we can get to know her better, and see a few more of her beautiful quilts!

1. When did you begin quilting? 
I started in January 2009.
2. Why do you quilt? 

Stress relief, I have a toddler :P
3. What is your favorite quilting tip? 

Well, it is not a technical tip just some advice, always try to push yourself into trying and learning new things you won't regret it.
4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt? 

The backing fabric.  (Check the link above, to see a picture of the fabric)
5. Do you sew other things? 

Yes. I have sewn clothes, curtains, a tent for my sons bed, toys, seat cushions, and several other things :)
6. Anything else you would like us to know about you? 

I love to create because I can control it, when so much in life is uncontrollable. Also, I joined a virtual quilting bee called Snip.Sew.Send.  I love it because I can try new things without the pressure of having to make a whole quilt. Oh and a month after I started quilting, I joined up with the Dear Jane quilt along. I call it my crazy quilt because I am crazy for doing it.

Thank you so much for sharing of yourself Zonnah!  Be sure to check out Zonnah's blog for more of her beautiful quilts.
