I'm new to quilting, though not to sewing in general. My best friend was a wonderful quilter before she lost her battle with breast cancer, and sometimes I think I'm beginning to 'channel' her.
When my grandkids were born, I used embroidery kits to make blankets for them, and quilted them to a flannel backing. That doesn't really count, though, and now after more than a year of 'work' I'm almost finished with a long table runner. I'm encouraged by all you folks with tons of UFOs!
My two eldest grandkids are now young adults, and would love to have quilts for their own apartments. Gramma better get to work!
