ABOUT EMILY

Emily Siddall

Hi, I’m Emily!

I live in Southern California, where I was born and raised. I made my first quilt when I was 17 and haven’t stopped since. When making my first quilt, I didn’t really know what I was doing and had none of the good supplies, I used an old cutting mat that was only 8.5×10.5 inches and a regular ruler. My squares were 8.5 so it was pretty tricky to cut them out. I quilted it on my little home machine by attempting to stitch in the ditch. While not perfect, this quilt is still one of my favorites.

During 2020, I started selling masks in my Etsy store and from the profits I was able to purchase my APQS Millie longarm machine. One of my favorite things about my machine is that everything is made in the USA! All the parts, and the labor. It also has a lifetime warranty so I don’t have to worry about breaking it. 🙂

It has been so amazing to see my business grow and now be able to quilt for people all over the USA. I love to help people get their quilt tops finished. A quilt top sitting in a closet to a finished quilt that can be snuggled and loved for years to come.

Currently, all my quilting is hand guided. I work from the back of my machine and trace a pattern by following the line with a laser light on my machine. I am saving up for the computer upgrade and hope to get it in late 2022!

When I am not at my longarm machine, I am usually working ona quilt top on my domestic machine. I have lots of projects going and I love it! I also love to cook, be outside and read. 

If you see me out of the house, it is almost always in a pair of cowboy boots.
