I have been sewing as long as I can remember. My mother and my godmother were my teachers. I started out making cloths for myself, my children and transitioned to wedding dresses and bridal party dresses. I am kind of new to quilting. I once made a quilt for a friends baby, all 4 inch squares. Not a real difficult quilt ....I have 4 children, 22, 21, 20, and 7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bom class!
