    Hi Im Delores I live in Grants, NM I am a 3-4 generation quilter, I learned to quilt as a little girl under the quilts my grandmother and mother used to put on frames. I have all of the patterns they used to mark pieces of material. I love some of the beautiful patterns they used, and sometimes I run across a quilt my mother made for a friend, here in town and remember all the times we spent together. I love sewing and have followed my mothers shoes, just before she passed away, she started to take quilting classes and learned how to make pieced quilts, she only made 2 that I know of that way. She loved to cross stitch and I still have the last one that we did together. Her last few years she was working on a cross stitch and so because she was not able to do a whole lot of work on it, I helped her to finish the cross stitchin. I have never sewed it together, I would love to have it quilted by machine, but I want it speciallized, the only machine quilter in our area follows patterns. I would love to have a quilt machine, but know I won't ever be able to afford one.

    I love to piece quilts together and to make them for my grandchildren. They all have baby quilts , and most of them have large bed quilts for there beds. The more I sew and do the more I learn and love.

    Wish ever one who reads this a Merry Christmas this night and hope the new year brings all of you great joy and much happines, and more quilting time in you life.

    what wonderful memories and treasures you have. My Mom helped me cross stitch a quilt, and then she had her church group hand quilt it. Those are such wonderful memories for me, so I know how you feel.

    welcome from Wyoming; I made one of those cross stitch quilts from a kit, and the back was marked with the hand quliting stitch line, you should be able to do that yourself
