My name is Ellayne. I began quilting in 2003, the year my son left home for University with my first tied quilt. I was introduced to quilting through a good friend, Joan O'Brien, who is an experienced quilter. We have attended some great workshops at Midsomer Quilting. Each quilt since then has been an exploration of different methods including applique and hand sewing. I'm never happier than when I have the chance to add bling in some way to my designs.
