    I started quilting when my kids wouldn't wear homemade clothes anymore! Now I make my grandkids quilts. I quilt mostly in the winter. In the summer I kayak and garden, and go to yard sales. I like to create my own designs rather than use other people's ideas. I usually start by picking out some fabrics from my stash, and then choose a basic block design that suits my choices. I machine piece and usually hand quilt. I have an antique quilt frame friends from Pennsylvania gave me with hand carved ratcheting ends that lock the rollers in place. I really like carrying on a tradition like quilting, and creating something beautiful and useful.

    emmah! What a surprise to see your location!! Lots others from NY around your area, but not Groton! You will need to PM me your address. I, too lived in Groton! I moved from there in 1994 to sunny Peoria, AZ. My daughter and her family still live there. We lived on Old Peruville Road for 15 years. I sure hope you are staying warm and safe!
