Native Texan by the grace of God, lived in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, lovely Alabama & the Amish country of Pennsylvania & had fun everywhere we went & collected fabric over the years. Began sewing at 33 when our son was born & got sticker shock from the nursery linen costs & mom gave me an old machine, been sewing since.
Started quilting in Nov 2011 after receiving a charm pack gift. After completing a "Learning Quilt"(5" squares with sashing & hand quilting it) I began to earnestly quilt. Finished the first pieced sampler but need to improve a lot! A friend wants me to learn applique which is scary so took a class Easter week & look forward to "curves" (but please pray for me - detest wasting fabric). Math teacher & a "linear" person here.
Joined QB a few months ago & have learned much from the wonderful QB folks. Their ideas & finished quilts inspire me, surely at least 20 of them know how to fix my mistakes!
Current Projects: yo-yo twin, 2 PSQs king & queen, Jenny Beyer's Moon Glow Cal King, & others as well as collecting silk for an international friendship twin quilt sometime soon, I hope.
Thank you for making me feel welcome here.
