Hey there! I’m sure you’ve already figured out that my name is Ellie :) In 2013, after my baby was born, I decided to learn a new skill that had tangible results. Unfortunately, my Playstation trophies weren’t something I could pass onto the next generation. And even if they were, I don’t know that I’d want my little ones to find out that I spent dozens of hours to reach 100% on Grand Theft Auto IV. But I digress…

With less time than ever for sandbox RPGs and multiplayer shooters, I thought it would be fun to create some quilts that reminded me of the hours I spent playing video games as a kid. You know, a hobby where you don’t end up dying when you have to rush over to your baby who just woke up from her nap. And with this new skill, I wanted to make other kinds of quilts, from traditional to modern.

So with the urge to create things for my family and the desire to share what I’ve been learning, I began this blog. The online quilting community has taught me many things, and I’d be happy if I could repay that by even a smidgen. Thanks for joining me on this new chapter of my life.

If you’d like to email me, you can reach me at its8bitellie at gmail dot com. I’d love to hear from you!
