Red and white quilt, for a challenge, completed November 2014
I only joined Instagram about 2 years ago. I had joined a new chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild, the Detroit Area Modern Quilt Guild, and our President Houseofduke1 (she's now a very dear friend) urged us all to get on Instagram, start establishing some relationships in that quilty world prior to Quiltcon 2015, and I am so glad she did. The quilting world on IG has been HUGE for me---so inspiring, vibrant and supportive, so much fun stuff going on! Initially I didn't know WHAT name to pick, so I went with SLCQuilter, my initials----but then, some people at Quiltcon 2015 thought I was Salt Lake City Quilter, LOL! So right after I got back I changed my IG name to SusanLorettaSquirrel to link it more closely to my blog. There's also been an ongoing joke about my name & I am frequently called Loretta, as that gets my immediate attention. I love that IG name and don't think I would change it. Instagram and my #DAMgirls are very important to me---they inspire me every day!
a few of us #damgirls in Austin for Quiltcon 2015 with my apologies to those not in this particular picture;
Thanks for being with us today, Sue.
