Quilting Keeps Me Sane from Kym Rock

I have been so busy lately, but wanted to stop a minute........think harmony.......and introduce myself a bit better than done previously. I am a very busy 50 something year old with grown kids (6), 3 grandkids and my youngest almost out of college. I love quilting for my family. It's gotten a bit crazy as one of them is always getting married, having babies, graduating from college or something wonderful (I am very blessed) that, in their minds, is worthy of a quilt. I work long hours for a magazine with a somewhat younger group who are also always having babies, which I try very hard to celebrate with a quilt. They have come to expect one and I hate to disappoint them! What makes me super excited about all this is that I will be able to take a break from "required sewing" and quilt something I want to do for myself. Harmony.....perfect for my busy life. I just hope to keep up with the group. I began quilting about 30 years ago and have done it since then to slow my life down and relax. It is my passion and I'm thrilled to be part of this fun group.


  1. I am glad you are part of the group and am curious how you will harmonize your great producton.

  2. Greetings, Kym, and I am so happy that you've told us more about yourself! I can identify totally with all those who come to expect quilts! But it is nice to be appreciated. I can't wait to see your work, and I am going to pay much more attention to D Magazine now. I don't see it often, but now I will be motivated to seek it out!

  3. You forgot to tell us, Kym, that you won a ribbon at the Dallas Quilt Celebration this year!
