Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl

About me

Location Tehachapi, California
Introduction My superhero backstory goes something like this: As most love stories start, so did mine. Many moons ago, a nerdy young girl fell in love with a nerdy young man, Jetman. They had hopes and dreams, but they lived very far apart. However, a short while later Jetgirl married her Jetman, Jetman graduated from college, they got jobs in the jet industry together, and before they knew what had happened, they were off on grand adventures together. They obtained a cat, which they aptly named Puppy. They moved. And moved again. And again. And yet again. Boxes and years are one way to measure their time together, but it is the adventures and love that they hold dear. Recently, Jetgirl took a leap and left her real jet job to find balance, and maybe some more time to quilt. My quilting backstory started a bit earlier… I started making my first quilt when I was 15 to have to use in college. My paternal grandmother hand stitched the quilt for me; it was the last quilt that she quilted. One of the best Christmas presents I ever received was my first sewing machine that I used that tiny machine to make over 25 quilts! I am excited about free motion quilting and modern quilting.
