8/14/23 – Sandi Timmons – Sonora, CA

Our Club Member of the Week this week is- Sandi Timmons ! Everyone say hi to Sandy ! I hope you will enjoy getting to know her a little better!

Name: Sandi Timmons 

Where are you from and where do you live now?: I am from Jamestown, California and I now live in Sonora, California

What is your favorite project you’ve ever made and why?: I took a class in Sonora to learn how to make a quilt. I did learn and I have kept this quilt but I cannot believe the colors that I bought and used to make this quilt. I have a quilting book and saw a picture of a cat quilt. I started working on this cat quilt only to learn that I did not have enough gray background to finish this quilt. I took the fabric to Twain Harte and was told that she would find that fabric for me but it would take a while. It did – almost 2 years this quilt was on hold for that length of time. Need less to say, I finished the quilt and it was sent to a longsarm quilter. She called me to say that she wanted me to enter this quilt in our Sonora Fair. I did not want to do this but she actually begged make to do it. I did and won lst place! 

What color seems to always make its way into your quilts?: I love the color blue and this color does get used a lot in my quilts
