Kali Stone is just 9-1/2 years old and already is quite an accomplished quilter. She inherited her love of quilting from her grandmother, Phyllis Morrow, who is the quilt display coordinator at Road. From the time Kali was very small, she watched her grandma quilt and wanted to try it herself. So Grandma Phyllis bought Kali a Hello Kitty Janome model sewing machine when Kali was just six years old. That was all Kali needed to begin designing and sewing her own quilt creations.
Kali likes to incorporate “random ideas” into her designs. Her first quilt had a cupcake theme and was entered in a quilt show. Other themes Kali has featured include soccer, bugs, and Halloween. Kali is currently working on a dog quit for her Chihuahua, Duke, using several dog designed fabrics.
Like other devoted quilters, Kali came to Road to look at the quilts to get new inspiration. She also bought some crystals and charms, an embroidery kit from the African Folklore Challenge, and an ink set and stencils.
Kali sees herself sewing “for the rest of her life.” She can’t wait to inherit her Grandma’s and Aunt’s stash to use for all her future creations.
