Hi, my name is Irina Simonova. I have been a quilter for over 7 years. I am doing hand guided/free motion overall, custom and heirloom quilting. I started to quilt on a long arm machine in 2010 while working at Inspired to Sew at Pine Needles (http://inspiredtosew.com) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I was quilting different kinds of quilts for displays, including overall quilting, custom, applique, etc. In 2011 I started to also take orders from individuals and opened my own business, Irina’s Quilting.

Throughout the years I have taken many classes for long arm quilting and have implemented new techniques in my customers’ quilts.

I have made quilts that have been entered for both local and major quilt shows. Some of them are winners.
