Our second Club Member of the Week this week is Pattie Boyd !
Everyone say hi to Pattie! I hope you will enjoy getting to know her a little better!
Name: Pattie Boyd
Where are you from and where do you live now?: I was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, grew up in Huntsville, Texas, and have lived in Fort Worth, TX for the past 34 years
What is your favorite project you’ve ever made and why?: My favorite project I’ve ever made was a quilt. I made it for my son and his wife for Christmas after they got married and I put pictures of each of them and their pet cats depicting different things in their lives. Was a very special gift made with lots of LOVE!
What color seems to always make its way into your quilts?: Pinks & Blues, Yellows, Purples. Just depends on the pattern I’m using
Do you do other types of sewing besides quilting? : Yes
Do you have other creative hobbies?: I like embroidery, crocheting, cross stitching, and making wreaths among other things
What’s your oldest UFO? Any tips on how you keep them from piling up?: OMG, I have a Queen size Afghan I started 40+ years ago when I first started crocheting after I got married and then LIFE has happened but I have carried/moved it with me from Houston to Fort Worth in and out of 6 homes and it’s still in the same box waiting for me to pull it out and finish it. Guess I should do that this winter ha-ha. I have several supplies/fabrics I have to make something with but haven’t gotten them done either. So to answer your question if I have any tips on how to keep them from piling up, my answer is SADLY NO!
Tell us about your family! : I am married (42 yrs.) and have 2 grown children, a son, and a daughter. Both are married and my daughter has 4 children (2 girls & 2 boys) and is expecting her 5th in December another little girl 🙂
What’s your favorite TV Show or Movie?: Gone With the Wind
Is there anything else you’d like to share??: My best friend Betty Serratt and I do a lot of quilting and sewing together. I go to her house at least once a week and sometimes twice to sew and quilt together. She has a nice big quilting machine and we do all our quilts on it. Between the two of us, we could open up our own fabric shop we each have Soooo much! We both just love making things for our family and friends
