Today’s Guest Host for Anything Goes Monday is Allison from Babco Unlimited.
By day she is a wife to one tech-savvy husband and mother to thee active children. By night she is a quilting superhero! Okay, not really. She doesn’t truly have superpowers, although she’s tricked her kids into thinking she can make just about anything.
She started quilting 7 years ago and life has never been the same since.
It all started when she asked her mom to teach her how to make a quilt. Mother and daughter would meet up weekly to learn about ¼ inch seams, rotary cutters, half-square triangles, and more.
Her first quilt won 1st place in a local quilt show. The quilt was intended for her eldest son, who quickly took credit for the win. Upon learning of the award, he called his dad and said, “Dad. The quilt mom and I made won First Place!”

She volunteers and serves with several quilt guilds. She edits the newsletter for one guild of 275+ quilters; She helped organize a new guild (then promptly moved—so maybe she’ll have to do it again in her new neighborhood); and she helps organize a Quilt Retreat for her State Guild that spans 4 days of quilting classes, luncheons, vendors, and events.
She loves piecing, free motion quilting, and learning new quilting tricks. She will be reopening her Tuesday Tips after the New Year sharing all those quilting tips and tricks that make quilting easy and fun. So be sure to follow her to discover new tips. Her kryptonite are appliqué and binding. (She is still sore about her near loss at the Battle with Binding.)
