tamaraHi, I’m Tamara — wife, mother of four, and quilter. When I was little, my father used to call me “Tomato”: hence the inspiration for my blog title.

I’ve been interested in quilting for a long while, but found it hard to make time to sew when I was working and my kids were younger. Now that my calendar has freed up, I’m enjoying the opportunity to spend more time in my sewing room, and I’m always challenging myself to learn about and try new things.

I started this blog to keep track of what I’ve been working on (and it has sometimes become an uncomfortable reminder of just how old some of my UFO’s are!). Thanks for stopping by!
