    My Grandma babysat me from the day I was born :lol: She quilted every chance she got so I grew up watching her.. When I was about 6 she bought me my first sewing basket.. She also let me "help" quilt whatever she was working on.. One memory that is really vivid was when she would put me down for my nap on the couch.. She would tell me a story while she sat and quilted... So quilting was something that was a part of my life for as long as I can remember..

    I learned to sew from "maman", my aunt whom I call mother in French. She was a seamstress and showed me a few things. Well 2 years ago she got lung cancer and through a friend I got the name of a group who make quilts for people with cancer. I requested one for her and she has it with her all the time, the treatments can make you feel a chill easily. I was so moved by the situation that I decided to join the group. I'm still learning but I can 'sandwich' with the best of them.

    Well what got me into quilting was when I came home from college Mom wanted to "reconnect" that mother-daughter relationship we had before I went off to school. I looked around for a quilting class and we found a 10 week class that taught you everything to make a quilt. So we took our class and now here I am addicted as ever!!!
