Desire to Inspire Challenge for November
Desire to Inspire Challenge this month was using the Coffee House collection from Deb Hron. Our challenger Cynthia Brunz accepted the challenge at the beginning of November, and has obviously had a busy, busy month.
Below you can learn more about Cynthia and see the gorgeous things she has made. Don't forget to leave a comment and give her props for the hard work. Okay, and fun too!
Meet Cynthia Brunz
I live in the beautiful Willamette Valley which is located in western Oregon. It is green, lush and very muddy this time of year! I also love to garden so the weather here is perfect for me. I have quilting to do when it rains and weeds to pull and flowers to pick when the sun shines.

I feel quite blessed that I make my living and support my household through quilting. I have an established longarm quilting business, teach classes and just recently I started publishing some of my own patterns. Even though I work long hours, at the end of every day, I feel like I spent the day playing. I wish everyone could spend their day doing something they truly love!

It is pretty hard for me to choose a favorite style of quilting. I love traditional quilts and their use and evolution through history. I think I am always influenced by tradition whether I am doing paper-piecing, applique, simple patchwork, English paper piecing or modern quilting. I do like to play with scraps. My philosophy is why use a few fabrics when you can include hundreds of prints in a quilt. I really like to explore how to use scraps in new and different ways.
And she has a blog, too!

I love to share my quilting adventures on my blog – http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.com. It has been a great way to meet new friends and share my passion. You can also find links to my patterns and the other social media I use. I hope you decide to hop over and join me in my journey.

I really do appreciate this opportunity to play with these fabrics. I have always loved to come up with fun ideas for using a stack of fabrics.
