Hi. I’m Cassie. I’m 26 and live in Nashville, Tennessee with my husband of 3 years and our two dogs.
I’m a lawyer and have been practicing for just a year. I love it, but it stresses me out…hence why I quilt. I definitely need my creative outlet, usually either quilting or crochet.
Since I was a kid, I have enjoyed needlepoint, cross-stitch and crochet. I have also dabbled in pottery and jewelry making at one time or another. I also love photography, but am a photographer only in the sense that I take photos – and usually not good ones. I started quilting in college when a friend of mine bought a sewing machine and Kaffe Fassett’s book Glorious Patchwork. I just couldn’t resist the beautiful quilts in that book. (A few of them are still on my to-do list.) My first quilt was a queen size Kaffe Fassett quilt. If I had known, I would have started with an easier pattern or a smaller scale, but I plowed through and love how it turned out. My quilting took a hiatus during law school because I didn’t really have the time or space to quilt, but I did manage to make a few baby quilts during those years.
My husband and I just bought our first house and now I have my own dedicated sewing space. I am thrilled to be back at it. And I am really thrilled to see the beautiful quilts that we are going to make together.
