I’m happy to be sharing with you some more information about one of our fabulous Project QUILTING sponsors this season -  Barbara Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb.

But before I get too far into her interview I have to share that she just became a grandma again!

Now – let’s get to know a little bit more about Barb:

What is your crafting style?

I am a long arm quilter and my favorite part is selecting fabrics
and designing the quilt.  I prefer scrappy quilts and I use a lot of my own hand dyed fabrics.

How did you get started creating? 

I have always been creative and did a lot of sewing but I didn’t start quilting until after my Mom passed away.  I had a quilt top she made for my son that needed quilted.  I hired a machine quilter to finish it.  After I completed that project, I thought I would try my hand at one for my daughter.  I was hooked. 

Do you have a favorite piece?

Mariner’s Compass on the Nine Patch  PB120353Why is it your favorite?

It is so traditional but still so unexpected in fabric combinations and design

What is your favorite crafty blog to follow/read?

I don’t really have time to spend a lot of time on blogs so I do a lot of skimming.

Which part of the creating process does you like the most?  

Selecting the fabrics and color choices.

Which part of the creating process do you dislike the most?

Getting that perfect binding, especially the corners.

Favorite Adhesive: Elmer’s glue works wonders when used in quilting.  Glue it where it supposed to be, press the seam, sew it shut and wash quilt when done.
Favorite Movie: Any good modern romantic comedy to laugh and relax with
Beverage of Choice: Muscato wine, especially the bubbly kind.
Sweet or Salty? A combination of the two together
Number 1 on your Bucket List: clean my quilting studio
