I've been quilting, mostly traditional, for 13 years now. Memories of my great-grandmother were my reason for making my first quilt. And, I hated every tedious minute of it. When I finished the lopsided mess, I put it in the closet and fully intended to forget about it. But, a few months later I looked at it and thought, "You know... if I ever did this again, I have a few ideas ..." and the rest is history. Oh, and I can knit a scarf like nobody's business, but scarves are as far as I've taken the knitting.
