About

I am the NONNIE of a 2 year old little boy… cute but busy.  I still work full –  time.  This is why I dream more of quilting then I actually quilt.  Of course, if I did not play on the computer so much I could probably get more quilting done too!  But then this blog would not exist.

I want to make quilts for my family to pass down to my nieces and nephews and my daughter.  When my parents came to this country from Italy they were not able to bring any family belonging or treasures with them.  I always kinda envied family’s who had belongings dating back to their ancestors.    

I have chosen quilting as my craft because I love sewing and think quilts are beautiful hugs to wrap my family in.  If my arms can not be there… my quilts can.  I find quilting to be challenging but also interesting and fun.  I am not an expert quilter but I try and do the best I can with every project I make.  I love learning new techniques and plan to try every one that comes along.  I have noticed that I tend to be more eclectic in my quilting … mixing  piecing, applique ( machine and hand) hand work, machine quilting and hand quilting in the same project.    I do start with a pattern be if from a magazine, a book or purchased.  I also take lots of classes at my LQS.  But most of my quilts get changed and become something else… Hopefully better but always my own.

 I hope you will want to follow along on this journey and will occasionally drop by to see what I am up to, thinking about….. What mischief I am getting into.   I plan to post links, and pictures and hope some day to post a podcast….. but that is way in the future.

 

Happy Quilting

Nonnie

  1. I’m also Nonnie to my 9 grandchildren! The oldest is 18, youngest is 11 months. They all live far from me, so quilts are my hugs to them as well! (I’m not Italian, but I’m still a Nonnie 😊. )
    Found you on Pinterest.

  2. Hi Nonnie,

    I couldn’t figure out the comments on the blog so please know I am commenting about your Dear Jane podcast. I listened to it as I drove to a retreat in the San Francisco area. It was great and brought back many Dear Jane memories for me. It is also synchronous as I just wrote about Jane on my blog. You hit so many points I agreed with. Thanks for a great ‘cast.

  3. I was so supprised to see your name. I grew up with the name
    Nonie most of my childhood and part of my adult life. There are
    not too many people with that name. My name Norina comes from my
    gandmother Nora and they called me Nonie for short.

    Nonie Perry (grand kids call me Rina short from Norina)

    love your site
