I am Nickie from Billings, MT. I have been quilting for about 15 years. I am a self-taught quilter. My first quilt was a sampler which taught you something new with each block. Add all the things you can pick-up from tv, the internet and listening to other quilters and I manage to make whatever I want. I LOVE fabric and quilt pattern books. I was born and raised in Montana. My husband of 42 years is retired military so we were away from here for 21 years. We have three children, all grown, and 4 very small dogs. ( Two toy poodles and 2 yorkie/poodles) I am part owner of a Research Center and spend most weekend mornings quilting. I also love to knit and read novels.
