I'd like to finally introduce myself. I haven't been anti-social, I've just been out of town, and really busy when I have been in town. I have been making quilts for almost 25 years. None of my ancestors that I know of has ever made a quilt, but I can remember being a little girl and wanting to make one. The funny thing about that is, so has my sister. When I became pregnant with my first child, (I have five), I made my first quilt. I did let him use it, and when he threw up on it the first time, that was the last time he saw it! I still have it in my cedar chest. I love all kinds of quilts, but I am particularly drawn to the most simple, or traditional ones. I do like to do a lot of improvisional work also. I am lucky enough to have a job that I love. I've been doing it for ten years now. I have two longarm machines, and they keep me pretty busy. I am excited to get to know all of you, and I anticipate having a lot of fun with this group.
