Meet talented quilter and Etsy Shop owner, Monique Reynolds from California. Visit her Etsy shop and follow her on Instagram. We adore the bag and quilt she made with the newest Sis Boom fabric line, Nostalgia. Have you seen the fabric line in quilting and fabric stores by you? Give us a shout!
I began sewing as a newly married wife in 1992 to make curtains for my home. I found I loved combining colors and patterns within a room, so I started sewing for each room. When my daughter was born in 1997 I made my first bed quilt for her & drew up my own design for it. Friends and family encouraged me to go into business making quilts & I didn’t think that was possible until I found out about Etsy. I opened my shop in August 2008 with purses & scarves and started getting requests for quilts. I custom made them with the customer’s fabric choices and soon added that option to my shop. I realized I could make something like a quilt with patchwork on one side, minky on the other that was more affordable and added that item to my shop. Having the support of Jennifer Paganelli trusting me to sew from her new fabric lines has helped me tremendously in getting my name out there to others who are in love her fabric as well but don’t want to tackle quilts. Today I have over 1,000 sales and love that I get to sew every day!
