About

Hi, welcome to donnaslavendernest.  I am happliy married to my  high school sweetheart David (32years) and we have one son Dillon. We live in a small Texas town which I love.  One precious dog (Maltese) Duchess.

I am a fabric hoarder and I have always loved sweet vintagey fabric's.  It all started with my grandmother when I was a little girl.   She taught me how to sew, crochet and embroider.  I can still hear her today, if you had to buy the thread you would not waste it.  I always took Home Ec in school just so I could sew. When I made cloths I never liked the way the turned out.

In 1998 I taught myself how to piece quilts through quilt books and in 2002 I bought my first quilt machine and taught myself how to quilt quilts. Today I love piecing quilts and quilting them.



My Grandma (Dorothy)

 I have been quilting for about 14 years.  When I first started quilting I used a Brother sewing machine on a New Joy Frame, about 3 years ago I finally bought a HQ Avante and I so love her.
She is a dream machine.

I have created 2 patterns in the past couple of years.  You can download them in my shop


Please fell free to contact me anytime.  I would love to talk to you.

Hugs,
donna
