I learned to sew as a child, and have always had a passion for the birhgt prints and colors of fabric. I had quite a stash of fabric even before I made my first real quilt about 11 years ago. I was in the local fabric store wondering about making a quilt for my twin granddaughters, when I fell in love with a quilt hanging on the wall of the shop. One of the fabrics had sweet little bluebirds in it. I was captured, and have been ever since.
Currently, I find myself drawn mostly to bed quilts or throws. Once i have patched the quilts together and made the backing, I hire someone to quilt them together. I am not drawn to that part of the process, and there are people in my area who have fancy, expensive equipment that makes the job unproblematic.
