Hi, I’m Jo Young- thanks for visiting my quilting blog!
I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. I live a Walton Family lifestyle; my son, his wife and three children, all live with my husband and me in an 1890’s farmhouse in the country. Another son lives close by. We round things out with our dog Angel (a mini Pomeranian) and Lily the (queen) cat.
While many times it’s a challenge for all of us to share one house, I feel very blessed to have our family close.
I made my first quilt in 1996; machine pieced and hand quilted, I fell in love with the quilting process and never looked back. I enjoy making all kinds of quilts, but antique reproduction quilts are probably my favorite.
Someone once asked me my why I quilt… my answer?
Quilts talk to me (don’t tell my therapist); the tattered antique quilts tell me stories about love and weddings, babies and hard times and letting go. The quilts I create today capture my stories and leave recipients to weave their voices with my own, ready to be shared with another generation.
I blog to give all quilts a voice, a part of the story. Join me in the journey!
