    Funny article by Oliver Wilms about how "Quilting is the hobby that grew into the monster that consumed my family." The article is from The Globe and Mail.

    It is reassuring to see a family together on a subject so close to my heart!!! Something so small grew into a passion and love of quilts plus a successful business. Memories!!!!

    I know his mother and sister. They're friends of mine and also members of our local guild. They have the same lovely sense of humour as Oliver does.

    Great story, except for the part when they put the dining room back together. Ours only becomes a dining room again for Thanksgiving.
