About Susan Strong

My name is Susan and I am a quilter. (Sounds like the beginning of a 12-step program meeting!) I am also the wife of a very understanding husband, mother of two great adult children and Nana of two beautiful granddaughters. I have been quilting for more years than I am willing to mention. To say that I am obsessed with quilting is an understatement. I love fabric, colour and the whole creative process. There is nothing better than starting a new quilt ... but finishing is another story. I am, what you might call, easily distracted. Always seduced by new fabrics and ideas. And that would be the reason I have a cupboard full of quilt tops waiting to be finished. Someday.

    I enjoyed the Classic Modern Quilts: Blog Tour. I would like to try to make some of the quilts I saw on the blog tour. It was interesting to see eveyone’s Interpretation of the blocks. I’m was waiting to see who designed the fan blocks. Great job.
