Block Seven with Celine Perkins
My name is Celine Perkins and my blog is A Few Loose Threads at http://www.perkinsdrygoods.com/blog. I am very happy to be included in this quilt along and I hope you like my block! Stop by my blog today and leave a comment – I’ll be doing a giveaway too and it’s a surprise!
I have loved to sew for as long as I can remember. My mom used to make all of my clothes when I was little, probably up until my wonderful teen years. She taught me to sew.
I started quilting in 1983. I took a class with a co-worker and was totally hooked after that. I started teaching quilting in 2000 and it seemed like a kind of natural progression to move into designing and writing patterns for quilts. Whenever I taught a class, I always re-wrote instructions, simplified things or added tips. Then I started designing things to teach. Perkins Dry Goods was born about 2 years later in 2002. I have published close to 40 patterns and self published 3 books. I love quilting and creating.
I’m married and have three children, two are away at college and one is a junior in high school. Zola the yellow lab and Rosie the Siamese kittiot round out my family. We live in suburban Minneapolis and right about this time of year, someplace warm and sunny sounds really good!
Here is the picture of Celine’s block.
Well, any pictures posted in the flickr group by tonight will be entered into the first drawing. About 10 ish tonight (Mountain Time) I will post my Block SIX. All blocks BEFORE mine are those entered into the first drawing. It doesn’t matter which block – just the one’s posted before mine. If you post your block AFTER mine, then it will be entered into the next drawing. I will post the winners tomorrow.
What’s up for grabs this time?
Toby has donated THREE of her Perfect Piecing Seam Guide as our prize tomorrow! Thanks Celine!
What do I have? I have a couple charm packs that would love to find their way to you.
