Paula McKinlay

   A little about me…I was raised by a 4-H leader which means I started sewing and knitting at the age of 4…of course it was Betsey Wetsey clothes, diapers, and blankets…I then moved onto clothe my Troll doll, Barbie, Ken, Midge, and Skipper…oh they wore outlandish outfits…back in the last century I soon discovered how I could design and make my own outfits for a lot less money…I really fell in love with sewing…my major at USU was pattern drafting…when I got married I  quilted a whole cloth quilt…my first… then after my 3rd and 4th children I discovered and became obsessed with quilting…I have never looked back….I love it all…hand quilting,  applique, hand piecing, machine piecing, gathering fabric, not so much binding… and I never have enough time in the day for all I want to do…In my real life I am wife to 1 husband, mother to 4 daughters and 1 favorite son, mother-in-law to 3 sons-in-law, and granny to 11 grandchildren.
