I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. As a little girl I was making Barbie clothes. In Junior High I was making my own clothes. I started quilting when my oldest daughter was born 20+ years ago. I was making western shirts, when I quilt making those I had lots of bright cotton so I started making quilts. Over the last 13 years I have really gotten into it. I'm now at the point where I no longer purchase Patterns. I've actually started designing my own. This past year I invested in EQ7 Quilt design program.
