Given my age, I am relatively new to quilting, about 3 years or so, and having nobody to teach me I learned on my own. I have taken several quilts to be LAQ and learned so many things about making my tops better from my LA. She has dealt with my wavy borders, uneven blocks, lumpy intersections, and quirky tastes - all while making the quilting look great. I have nothing but admiration for all the LAQ out there. One of my dreams is to have my own quilting studio (instead of a tiny sewing room) with a LA. When that happens, I will be right here for all the answers to silly questions.
