I began piecing, stitching in the ditch, stippling & quilting by hand 25 years ago. Since my retirement last year, I've enjoyed having more time to experiment with free motion quilting. I bought a very good sewing cabinet that will support a large quilt top, so now I'm ready to learn new skills and have fun.
