Welcome to blue feather quilt studio. My name is Marjorie Busby and I have been a quilter for at least 40 years–or the better part of my life. I live in Carrboro, NC with my husband, Ted, and am the Mom to two wonderful daughters and their husbands and grandmother to their six children.
I started sewing as a child and won my first sewing machine at the 4-H Dress Revue by stitching a lined wool skirt and knitting a matching cardigan. When my children were born, I took up quilting and did a lot of hand quilting. I also joined the craft cooperative, Womancraft, and began to sell some of the quilts I made.read more
Machine embroidery is another stitching passion of mine. I bought my first embroidery machine in 2009 and instantly fell in love. Although I purchased the machine so that I could make quilt labels, a whole new world opened to me. I invested in digitizing software and creating my own designs almost immediately. The AccuQuilt GO! die cutting machine is a tool that I use for accurately cutting shapes for piecing quilts–and it also cuts beautiful shapes for machine embroidery applique. This was a marriage made in stitching heaven. And thus, my embroidery business was born.
