I started quilting in 2001. I started with a block of the month at BJ's with my sister and 2 friends. After class we went to my sister's home to sew It usually took all 4 of us to complete our blocks (we all remembered parts of the demo).
I started sewing in junior high at school. My mom and grandmother both sewed alot. My grandmother also quilted with a ladies group at church. When she died I inherited two of her quilts, a butterfly quilt and one which was just the top. I was so excited that my mom and I went to BJ's, when they were on Division, and Crys helped us tie it. It is still unbound because I want to add my touch to it - rickrack - someday.
My favorite classes: I have taken several over the years, but my favorite was "Strip Club" at BJ's. It was a great way to use up a lot of my leftover fabrics. Just the name made it fun and more important - that is where I met Amy.
Favorite fabric lines: Anything that has flowers
First completed quilt: Was a log cabin queen size quilt. I still have it and use it sometimes on my bed. It is too narrow and way to long! I made it with a sewing group at church.
What am I working on now: My challenge quilt for COMQG (just finished the top - now need to decide what to do for the back). Also working on a snowball scrappy charm quilt and my novel idea quilt for "Snow Child".
