    this is the only thread in my 2+ yrs of Board membership that I have read every word of every entry - some even brought on tears, some laughter, lots of smiles - they are wonderful stories

    We were expecting our 3rd grandchild and thought a quilt would be beautiful. Was on vacation on NC and the "boutiques" I visited all had quilts -- Made in China. I was so frustrated when I returned home, I decided I can make a quilt myself. I have been sewing since my early teens -- my mother and her sisters were all seamstresses. I am self taught and have been quilting for over 5 years. It is such a relaxing and rewarding hobby. How can you go wrong giving a gift made by your hands and given from your heart.

    My maternal grandmother almost always had a quilt on the frame...when they lived on the farm and even after she and Grandpa moved to town (usually a Log Cabin). My mom also quilted, but not so much until we kids were grown; she sewed many things for me and for my sisters, and the scraps from the clothing projects went to Grandma. I was always interested in sewing and quilting...did much more garment sewing before I was married, and a lot for my girls when small and prom dresses as teenagers. Didn't really start quilting until 8 to 10 years ago. I've been having fun lately making t-shirt quilts.
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
