Raq Queen Quilters "spotlight a member" day

TGIF everyone, thank you for stopping by the RQQ blog. We chose today to be our spotlight a member day.
Todays pick is JOEY STRANGE, she came into this group back over 2 years ago and was pregnant with her first child. We all went through a part of the pregnancy with her all the way up to when she went into labor. She called me and I announced to the group " ITS A GIRL" and well the rest is history. Joey has two little girls now, goes to school, cooks, cleans, and takes care of her two little ones, but does manage to get to her sewing machine to stitch out some beautiful creations.

I asked Joey some questions and here are her responses:


At what age did you become interested in crafting?

I started crafting at an early age. I was in Home Ec class in the 6th grade while stationed in Germany. My first craft was to cross stitch a teddy bear in an Army uniform. My dad was in the Army.
How long have you been doing your craft?
Well I no long do cross-stitch. Now I’m crazy about rag quilting or bags. First I started the traditional quilting in 2003 (a couple of months before I got married).

What different crafts do you do?
Mostly quilting now, but I’ve done cross-stitching, knitting, and Swedish weaving. I know that there is more but can’t think of them at this time.

Who inspired you to get into it?
Surprise, no one.

Any goals in the next 5 years?
To be a stay at home mommy.

What is the best project you created and why?
My best project I would have to say is my little boy’s quilt. Why? Because I never finish ANY quilts for the family and I did for my first child. But the quilt is now a memory quilt of him because he was a stillbirth at 37 weeks old and now is with the Lord.

What do you do when you’re not crafting?
Taking care the hubby, girls (almost 23 month old and almost 6 month old), and house.

Anything else you want to share?
That RQQ (Rag Queen Quilters) is a fun and loving group of ladies. Glad to be a member.


We are all proud of Joey and all she does!! Of course with a group of woman who are mostly older than her, she has lots of Aunts, and Grandma types to keep her out of trouble.
Thank you again for stopping by Rag Queen Quilters blog, see you next Friday with another of our weekly member spolights!
