Today's guest is Leona from Tír na nÓg Studio 


I really love the reason she named her business so...

"Tír na nÓg is a wonderful story from Irish mythology, it is a place of eternal youth and beauty where time stand still, no one grows old or gets sick, flowers bloom perpetually, there is no sorrow or pain and where love is eternal. I loved this story growing up and imagined Tír na nÓg to be like heaven. When in the creative process of making a quilt, I can get so engrossed that it does seem like time stands still and all the cares and troubles of the world are no longer present – my little slice of heaven on earth!"

Leona's quilting journey started 5 years ago when she went to local quilt store and was just awestruck with the quilts on the walls and the fabric, especially batik. Within a few days she had a new sewing machine, signed up for a beginners quilt class and her obsession with quilting took off. By the end of the 4 week quilt class she upgraded my sewing machine to one with more bells and whistles and before the first year was over she had her own long arm as she wanted to be able to create quilts from start to finish herself!

Hop over to her blog to read what she has to say about her machine...
