I learned to sew from my mom, and I started quilting nearly 30 years ago when she coordinated an annual quilt show in Ashland, Oregon. My mom also taught me the basics of knitting when I was about ten. It took me a little longer to catch the knitting bug, but now I love it as much as quilting. Sometimes, there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do! Visit my blog at laurelsstudio.blogspot.com to see what else I've been up to!
