I love to quilt. I have been quilting since I was a little girl helping my mom make simple square quilts for babies in our family. We used double knit polyester fabric and tied them with yarn. It was a great introduction into sewing, fabrics and color. Thing I am all about these days!
I would describe my quilting as Traditional Fusion, a love of all things old but new and with a modern, contemporary feel. I am a quilter from rural northern Michigan who loves to crochet, knit, tat, doodle, play Celtic music on my violin and travel. I am a married to a man that I met when we were 13 year old kids. He puts on a kilt and does Scottish Highland games all summer. I am his official photographer and stat keeper. I am mother of two adult children and grandma to three. I work full time in health care and wedge in my creative endeavors around the work week. I am all about working in short blocks of time and leveraging what time I do have. One stitch, one block, one row at a time.
I free motion quilt on my long arm, no computers! I long arm quilt tops for other people, see the long arm quilting tab for more information. I am designing and writing patterns. Watch for new items on the tutorial/free pattern page and the store is up and growing in 2018!
I love Instagram and post there daily. I enjoy creativity so much that I run a Face Book Group -My Creative Corner3 where we do daily prompt challenges to stimulate creativity! See below. I also have a Facebook page, Vicki Holloway Quilting as well as a You Tube channel called Vicki Holloway. Join me on social media!

Daily Prompt Challenge
The Daily Prompt Challenge was started February 2017. I had been part of my local art guild’s 100 day challenge in the past but I didn’t want to formally commit 100 days to making a large long term project. I have several of those types of projects in the works already. Instead, I wanted to use the idea of doing something creative everyday and finding things that helped to jump start my creativity. I already do creative things every day and wanted to find a way to make some fun, lighthearted exercises to help. I wanted an activity that could be completed in 10 or 15 minutes, longer if I wanted to. I also do daily photo a day challenges on Instagram and have for years. Thus an idea was born.
This page is where I will post the monthly prompts. I post daily prompt pictures on Instagram and I have a Facebook group called My Creative Corner3 it is Here.
Please join in anytime! It is a fun community. Some post daily other do not. Some are funny and some are just amazing! Thanks for joining us!
