Desire to Inspire - September Challenger- Meet Sandie L.

Meet Sandie L.- She took on the challenge of using "Irish Blessing” by Janet Rae Nesbitt of One Sister Designs in the month of September 2019.

I live in Lakewood, WA. My husband is a 30 year Army Veteran and I also served in the Army for 4 years. We have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren, and I love to sew for them!  Only one sweet one-year-old granddaughter lives near us, so packages are usually flying from our home to the east coast on a regular basis.  I have been a pattern tester for a couple quilt and bag designers for the last 10+ years. I cannot believe how time has flown!

I made my first quilt for our first son when he moved into a toddler bed from his crib over 30 years ago!  It was all hand applique and after I finished all the blocks, I thought "He is going to jump on the bed and this will rip out", so I then machine stitched close to the edge of every single piece! After that, I claimed I was allergic to applique. LOL
