Hi, I live in Louisiana and have been quilting for about 4 years. I have sewn since I was in high school, so this is just an extension of that. I have 4 grown kids and 5 grands. My first quilt was an LSU quilt for my oldest grand. I have 4 cats and a girl mini doxie named Lili. I am retired but I don't make very good use of my time, lol.
