My name is Kate Toney and I have been obsessed with creating since I was a child. An artist from the womb I’ve always had a flair for drama and an obsession with everything retro.
I work in a, very large, quilt studio in Orlando, Florida and spend most my work and free time sewing and long arm quilting. However I love making things no matter what the medium and can’t wait to share each creative adventure with you. Whether it’s putting together a perfect quilt from start to finish, discussing the ins and outs of sewing or making felt ornaments with kids (not mine thank goodness) you’ll find it here…with a Tough Kitten twist.
Tough Kitten comes from a nickname my father gave me as a little girl, playing off one of my favorite baseball players as a kid. Years later I’m not the baseball fanatic I was then but the nickname still describes me and my style perfectly: equal parts sweet and fierce.
Please stop and poke around for a while! Be sure to leave a comment or two as I love to get to know the other makers of this world.
