Welcome to my blog! As you can tell, I'm into quilting, and I already know how "unusual" that is for a man. And one from the South as well. It's a creative outlet that I latched onto about a year ago, and have been on it like a dog on a piece of meat. :)
So, why quilting? I have an art background and have painted a lot, but always found that to be work because I struggled with it and got frustrated a lot. I won some awards, and I think I was fairly good at it. But like I said, it was work. With quilting, it's just enormous fun for me and it's just amazing the different ways you can let the creativity out with fabric and thread. Fun, functional, AND satisfying!
