My name is Kristina. I live in Ely Nevada. I am a Materials Engineer, BSE, and work with my husband performing Geotechnical Testing for various projects. Quality Control is key to this type of work.
I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in the summer of 1995. I trust Him for everything. My favorite verse is Romans 5:8, "God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
My husband wholeheartedly supports my quilting. We have been married for 17 years. When he was little, he would help his Grandma by sitting under the quilting frame and pushing the needles back up through the quilt that they were hand tying. He recalls that many a pin or needle were left in those old quilts!
We have seven kids together. Ages 5 to 16. They are very active in school, sports and music. They all quilt too! My youngest son made his first quilt last summer!
I own two APQS longarm quilting machines. Frogger was purchased in 2008 and Toad in 2011. Toad is a shorter throat machine, and easier for my kids to use. The advantage in two complete systems is that I usually have one machine available to load a quilt.
I have been quilting/piecing for nearly 12 years. I love it! I bought my first longarm over 4 years ago, and have never looked back! I use the same quality control in my quilting that we do in our testing. The proper combination of thread and batting can make all the difference in your finished quilt.
I would love to be a part of your quilting project.
