About me
AboutMe My name is Sonja Koch. My hobby of making quilts got started during college breaks. I graduated from college in 1993 with a degree in accounting. I started my public accounting career right away. Boy it didn't take me long to find out that I hated doing audits and taxes. I needed to find something else to do for a living.

My husband and I were ready to start a family. So I wanted to find something to do from home. Making quilts to sell at craft fairs was one option I came up with. But I couldn't find a machine quilter in our area to quilt them for me. That was the spark of inspiration I was looking for. Surely I was not the only person who liked to make the quilt tops, but didn't want to spend a lot of time hand quilting. So I bought a Gammill longarm quilting machine. Since 1994, I have been very happily working as a professional longarm machine quilter.

During the years of doing machine quilting for customers, a few people asked me to make a quilt for them out of their t-shirts. All of them were so thrilled with their finished quilts. It was very rewarding to make a quilt for someone that instantly has so much sentimental value. Making t-shirt quilts has since become one of the main services I offer.
