I didn't get started in crafts until I was an adult. I had learned how to show when I was a girl. My friend started me out in crafting but my dream was to learn how to quilt so that I could finish a quilt top my grandmother had pieced. I started to teach myself some but then I took a class in the late 1980's that really got me started. I have made several quilts with traditional designs. I know want to start exploring art quilts.
