Quilter Spotlight: Tina Katwal


Tina on her 40th!
The second in the Quilter Spotlight series - Tina Katwal lives in Chennai and is a part of the India Modern Quilt Guild. She blogs at Holy Scrap! I think my first interaction with Tina was when she asked me about the Traditional Quilting Workshop in Bangalore. We've only interacted on email after. I really like Tina's work and I'm very impressed with how much she does! She's a business woman, a wife and mother and she quilts a fair bit! And... judging from the picture she sent me of herself... she's cool too! :)
Many thanks to Tina for taking the time to put down such enjoyable answers to my many questions.

1. So Tina, could you tell us a little bit about yourself, apart from the quilting? 
Oh, I’m just a lucky recently-turned-40 yr old mom of two very sensible girls, wife of a Neanderthal :) who loves me insanely even after two decades, owner of a small business in fancy cycles and fitness equipment, living by the sea in one of India’s best cities, AND having the luxury to be able to quilt sometimes. Also adoptive mother to a hamster named Bunny (!) and four fish. I blame all my eccentricities on my being an Aquarian. My husband blames my parents though. :)
