No, I am not Mexican.
No, I am not your grandma (nor your grandpa neither).
My name is Raymond K. Houston. I am a fifty-something African-American male quilter.
I am largely self-taught in a variety of subjects: sewing, quilting, symmetry, tessellations, fabric dyeing, web design, and Celtic knots, to name a few. These subjects fuel my creativity.
This site, Nacho Grandma’s Quilts, is my online playground where I hang out, play, share, and have fun. Won’t you join me?
I write about the subjects I’m passionate about, so my blog is all over the place. One day, I’ll write about symmetry; the next day, I’ll write about Celtic knots; and who knows what I’ll write about after that.
You may be interested in tessellations, but not Celtic knots. You won’t want to wade through ALL the posts just to read about what you’re interested in.
To make things less confusing, I have grouped my posts by category (see the list of categories in the sidebar to the right).
Click on any of the categories to the right to read all the posts in that category.
This blog combines posts from three different blogs. There are nearly five hundred posts. Please be patient while I comb through them, pruning and organizing them.
