Paula Weir

During the interview with Paula Weir we realized that we not only share our first name, but we also share another very special name.  Paula has had some wonderful angels in her life to help her on her quilting journey which also shows how wonderful our quilting community is.  I love how she explains that these were extremely gracious ladies, and also that she herself had to be open to receive the information they shared.

Here is a picture of Paula’s favorite quilt from many years ago (these are Paula’s Whippets Danny 12 and Cooper 7) that reminds her to be proud of not being a perfectionist.

This is the first quilt Paula made for herself.  It was a non traditional fabric choice.

And here’s a couple of pictures of Paula’s sewing area.

    Loved this interview with the “Paula”s. Paula Weir is my Facebook friend who I have actually never met in person. We stumbled into each other through our love of whippets and over time realized we had quilting in common too! We ask and offer advice about our dogs and our quilts almost daily. We both live along highway 401 in southwestern Ontario and I hope to visit Paula this summer for a socially distanced visit on her deck. We share the 3 most important things that give us joy in our lives – our family, our whippets and quilting.

    Paula W…
    Thank you so much for sharing this journey with us.
    What a lovely insight into getting to know you better!

    Though we have known each other for years through our love of Whippets…. it was heartwarming getting to know this side of you and to hear your story.

    Stay cozy 😉

    Apparently there is a correlation between quilting and loving whippets! I am also one of those people but
    nowhere near as prolific! Paula is an incredible quilter and I love seeing her creation. Did I mention that she is also an incredible human too?

    So enjoyed your interview with Paula. Again, hearing the comments about how quilters help each other. Also love the description of your granddaughter providing the coziest of quilts for you. That is love.
