Per Roda's request, here is my story.
Married mom of 3. Ages 25, 19, 16. I don't work outside the home. We always felt a stay home parent was important and have tried to make that work for us.
My quilts are generally very traditional. The quilt for this will be traditional blocks in blacks, whites, greys, tone on tone, etc. I went with that instead of my usual 30's fabrics because I didn't want to send people out shopping for very specific fabric they might not even like. Black and white is generally available in some form and I wanted it to be easy for everyone. I see this as a social event not an attempt at an award winning quilt.
