I taught Textiles and Food Technology in the UK for over 30 years. On moving to the USA in 2005 I finally had the chance to pursue new challenges for myself. I took up quilting with the help of Alex Anderson, her books and tv programme. When I completed my quilt top I was fortunate to find a newly opened quilt shop in Tomball and many new friends. Such a wonderful group of people that continues to expand. I count myself very lucky indeed.
