Silly Moon Quilting Rulers
About Silly Moon Quilting Co.
"Do what you love,and the rest will fall into place". These inspirational words were spoken in our home on a regular basis by my amazing husband and were passed on to him by his Mom. This is how my quilting journey began. I needed a hobby, something to take me away from the stress of co-running a business, raising two children and two dogs! I used to cross stitch, and have always loved crafty stuff. My talented Mom, filled my home with beautiful cross stitch pictures, and I realized I did not need more. Hmmmm, what craft to choose. A dear friend of mine is a quilter. I walked into her home and saw the most amazing wall hanging that she had hand quilted. I was inspired!
Off I went to the fabric store and purchased the fabric for my first quilt. It was a flannel rag quilt, made for a family member with cancer. I was hooked! I made many more rag quilts, each one a little more complex than the last and with a little better sewing!
I moved on from rag quilts and started pieced quilts. I quickly decided that I loved piecing, but I also loved the quilting process. As I struggled free motion quilting full size quilts on my Bernina 801 Sport that was handed down to me, my hubby said "There has to be a better way" Of course my response was, "You bet there is!! "
Fast forward to today, I now am the proud owner of a Gammill Longarm and felt that I wanted to add some rulers to my tool box. I wanted something I could use on my longarm, but also use on my domestic. My husband is a talented machinist, and said "I can make those!" Needless to say, I have been fortunate enough to tweak them to exactly what I want, and hopefully you will find that they are exactly what you want!
How the company name came to be:
When my beautiful daughters were young, they asked many questions, like most toddlers. A recurring question was why is the moon out during the day. I began by explaining the reasons they could see the moon, but their response was that it was just a "silly moon"! The moon seen in the daytime sky, is still and likely will always be, referred to as a silly moon by our family! The name was chosen to pay homage to my girls, who support me in everything I do. I love you both.
