Question and Answer with Amy Hamberlin
What is your favorite pattern that you have designed? Amy:
I have 2 favorite patterns. The first one is called "My Favorite Bag
." This pattern made it to the top of my list because I love the versatility of big chunky bags. They're great if you have little kids and for just about everything else too. My other favorite pattern is one I just designed so it hasn't come out. But you can check it out on the cover of HomeSpun magazine's November issue.
What do you enjoy doing when you aren't quilting? Amy:
My family and I really like outdoor activities. Watching baseball, shooting hoops or challenging my son to a round of golf are some of my favorites. But sometimes the best way to relax is just hanging out at a park or doing some yard work.
What is your favorite quilt-related memory?
Before I started quilting I became close with my husbands grandmother (a long time quilter). Over many years she had made blocks from important phases of her and her children's lives. She showed me blocks from prom dresses and many other life events using silks, cottons and fabrics of all kinds. Walking down memory lane as she explained each block will always be dear memory.
