Hello, I’m Liz behind, Life, Faith & Quilts. I live in the third world of the Big Island of Hawaii. HAHA! I live in a town called Pahoa, Hawaii. Some of you might have heard of this town on your local news about Pahoa. Yes, we live near a volcano. Well, at the moment, we don’t know where the lava is flowing anymore since the last eruption in 2018.
Life has been very challenging since we moved here from Seattle in 2014 with my wonderful husband who supports me unconditionally, two dogs Oscar & Kappy, and my feline girl, Misty. Since moving here, we acquired more children. Goliath, and 5 hens.
So to compensate for our own children, I have three dogs, two cats and I honestly cannot forget the 5 hens! My hobbies are, quilting, reading, gardening, and organizing.
I didn’t learn how to quilt until 25 years ago. I actually failed Home Economics in high school. I couldn’t sew or even cook if my life depended on it. When I moved out on my own, I had to learn these things on my own. I am self-taught quilter. What inspired me to sew was the colors, prints in the fabric. I also love challenging myself in putting colors together. This is where making quilts came into play. I haven’t stopped since. My favorite part of quilting is incorporating hand or machine piecing and applique. I love to just sit and applique. In 2018, I made four queen size Hawaiian quilts which I will share with you soon.
ABOUT this Blog…
This is actually my second blog. My first blog was called “My Sew Called Life…” I wanted to keep track of my quilting and sewing projects. However, life just got too crazy for me. It was difficult. I have no idea why but that is how I felt. Maybe our good Lord felt I was not ready to have a blog then. So, after a year, I shut “My Sew Called Life…” down. So, after shutting it down, months went by and blogging came to mind. So here I am again, I decided “Life, Faith & Quilts” Life in a Quilter’s World. I love sharing my love of quilting, sharing a verse from scriptures to share with everyone here.
- Reading the Scriptures and learning more about our Father’s sacrifices for us and the world.
- My husband + family + friends and animals. I still want a goat.
- Organizing my home and studio.
- Learning + practice what I’ve learn to help me grow and be a better person.
- living a simple life.
- Fabrics + Fabrics + Fabrics
- Quilting or sewing simple garments, items, etc…
- The sound of my sewing and longarm machine. Brings music to my ears.
