Which came first, the quilter or the scraps? If you have been a quilter for any amount of time, you almost certainly have a pile of scraps from past projects. For me, the scraps actually came first. FIRST, I had a bunch of really pretty scraps, THEN I became a quilter because I wanted to use them. Hi. My name is Em Komiskey. You can find me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/moonlightsewing. I found quilting when my oldest daughter, now 12, was about 2 years old. I had dabbled in making toddler dresses and had made quite a few fabric baby carriers called “meh dais”. (Note: If you’re curious, you can read about them here.) I currently live outside of St. Louis, Missouri and recently began my tenure as vice president of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild. My husband and I have 4 kiddos, age 5-12, with whom we enjoy hiking and summer camping trips. I am looking forward to our camping trip to Minnesota this summer, where I will also run my first full marathon, assuming all goes as planned. My day job is owner of a home-based preschool and daycare, so almost all of my quilting is done at night, thus the "moonlightsewing" Instagram handle.
