Desire to Inspire- March Challenger - Heather Long


 Meet Heather Long -She took on the challenge of using "Ghostly Glowtown” by Shelly Comiskey of Simply Shelly Designs in the month of March 2019.


Hi! My name is Heather Long and I live in Phoenixville, PA, just outside of Valley Forge. It's a wonderful town with a very active downtown restaurant scene but still within a short drive to the Valley Forge National Park and all the trails available.

 I've been married for 3 years to my amazing husband, Andrew and we have one 2-year-old son, James (Jimmy) who is my best little quilt helper. We travel quite a bit more than I ever expected to, especially with a baby/toddler, but we enjoy our adventures.

When it comes to quilting, I'm mostly self-taught from books and blogs. I started quilting almost 15 years ago - no one else in my family quilted or really sewed, but I just had the itch. I started by reading everything I could but then I finally had to just jump in and accept that my first quilt would NOT be perfect. My favorite quilts are traditional with a bit of a twist. I don't really consider myself a modern quilter, but I'm not strictly traditional either. You can check out my blog here.


While I don't belong to a "real life" guild, one of my greatest resources is an online group called Quilting Around the World - I've gone to several retreats and join online challenges there. I love those ladies!
