Hello, my name is Ruth.I have been married for 43 yrs & we have a son & 2 daughters, thier respective spouces & 7 grandchildren. I have sewn since childhood , & started quilting about 5 yrs ago.I have a mid arm machine & I quilt for others. I retired in June of last year  & now am devoting more time to quilt. I want to make another quilt for each of the grandchildren this year & I want to finish up some UFOs, I have several tops I plan on quilting.I also have started teaching beginning quilters since I have retired.

I have enjoyed reading everyone's post & looking at the pictures.Glad I found this group.

Ruth in Ky.

   Ruth, I know where that is, but don't think you can get there from Carter Co,  Just kidding, you are about  2 hours from me I think.
