    Hello all. As you can see, I've chosen the name of my favorite quilt block.. It was the first quilt I ever saw because my great grandmother had made it for my mother when she was born. That's who I inherited the love of quilting from.
    I fell in love when I went to a quilt show in Denver in 1988 and I knew that it was my destiny to make quilts. I wasn't able to start until 1994, but, then I went at it like gangbusters! I can't even tell you how many I have made! It was one of my biggest passions.
    Unfortunately, when I was young, I was in a couple bad car accidents that gave me some issues with my neck. In Sept. of 2009 I had a failed surgical fusion of my neck with 2 surgeries causing me nonstop pain. I've lost my passion for quilting for this last year and a half and am just now starting to get a glimmer of the desire back again. Hopefully this board will help it to grow again.
    Anyway, I'm married, the mother of 2 grown sons and one granddaughter. My husband and I live on a ranch in Wyoming in the summer months and in the Las Vegas area in the winter months. We used to do a lot of traveling and am hoping we'll be able to do more of that again some time soon.
    Lastly, I love to share things that I find with people. I found a wonderful on line quilt shop - and NO - it is NOT mine! lol - I don't like the four letter word (work) :D
    Anyway, I found her through facebook and have tried her out. I ordered some of the fabric she had on sale and boy - I was surprised! The batiks were selling for $1 for a fat quarter and I told her to send me a variety. They were beautiful and high quality! Then, she had her shot cuts - again - impressed! I've been getting my Aurifil thread through her too because you can't find them at that price anywhere. She's got great customer service too. She's having an awesome sale right now - and NO - I'm not getting anything for this - but you should really check it out! It's at

    We'll be seeing you all more, I'm sure.
    Thanks and happy stitching!

    Hello from Illinois. It's OK if you don't quilt too much any more. Being on this board will take up all your time & be so much fun that you might just forget to save time to quilt...........
