Desire to Inspire- December Challenger- Mary Pat Proctor


Meet Mary Pat Proctor -She took on the challenge of using “Tickled Pink” by Janet Rae Nesbitt of One Sister Designs in the month of December 2018.

Hi! My name is Mary Pat Proctor and I was so excited to be chosen for the December Desire to Inspire! I live in Eads, TN—just east of Memphis. We love being out in the country with a little land—we used to have a jersey milk cow and some chickens, but now are just down to a dog and cat. I have 3 kids—one married, one in college, and one a senior about to graduate. We have homeschooled and so I’m soon to be starting a different phase in life for sure! 

I learned to sew clothing about 23 years ago—I have had my own window treatment business and children’s boutique clothing business from my home over the years while also sewing for my kids and friends. I am pretty new to quilting. I took a beginner quilting class with my mom and I was hooked! I am also loving free motion quilting—in this quilt I quilted feathers, and feathers, and more feathers! I really enjoy putting fabrics together and choosing a pattern to highlight those fabrics.

 

For this quilt, I used the fabric collection, "Tickled Pink" by Janet Rae Nesbitt of One Sister Designs with the pattern "Tiny Dancer" by Jaybird Quilts. I was able to make it a lap size, which will be great for these winter months!

Very nice quilt. Looks so simple but we know it took some work. Love the edges, nice to have something other than the straight edge. You did great Mary Jane.

Love your quilt! That's one of my favorite patterns, and it made up beautifully in that color palette. I love HG fabrics, and your collection is lovely!
