Hi, I just want to introduce myself to all you quilters, my real name is Marilyn. I'm not a great quilter, maybe not even a new quilter. I joined to get information so my quilts will look better. I have never had a lesson but nearly 6 yrs ago, we lost our youngest chiild to a heart attack. I needed an outlet to keep my mind from going over and over what had happened. The first quilt I did was for my grandson, his Dad was my son Kirk. I bought a kit while I was in harrisville and never knew it but it was for advanced quilters. I did it all by hand, it did look quite nice. he still uses it. then I started making them for my grandkids , I have 7 of them and 3 newbies and 2 great grandchildren. I gave each one a quilt. Now, 3 are married so I got 2 grandaughters and a grandson. I love them all. Thank you for listening.
