I am a Kansas native, transplanted to Colorado some 30 years ago. I am the mother of 2 sons, grandmother of 3.
I began quilting about 20 years ago when my sons were well into their teens. I needed an outlet that did not require a major outlay of time or money. I was a self-taught quilter in the beginning as my first visit to a quilt store ended in disaster. An Eleanor Burns book was my first purchase and my first quilt was a sampler made from all shades of lavender polyester cotton prints. My sister is the proud owner of that quilt. Since that time, I have evolved into a competent quilter. My favorite pattern is Log Cabin and I consider myself a traditional quilt maker. Lately, I’ve discovered a passion for scraps and the scrappier the better. I have amassed a huge collection of scraps that I am “mastering” and working my way through.
I am so looking forward to making new quilting friends, teaching new quilters, and continuing the quest of my passion. It’s nice to meet you!
