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 may wanna follow my latest project, but not my tutorials. 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.
You can find these categories under “Blog” at the top of the page and in the sidebar to the right. Click on any category to read all the posts in that category.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any comments, questions (or complaints) at rkh@NachoGrandmasQuilts.com.
