My name is Paula. Please be.patient with me while I learn how the group works. I look forward to meeting other quilters. I have been making quilts since I was big enough to cut out the squares for my mom for little 9 patches for my doll blankets. I have worked on and off with quilts for yrs. But it seems I always return to my true love of quilting. 

I am 48 yrs old and I have now retired and have really gotten back into making quilts on a regular basis. I want to meet new people who share the enjoyment of the art.

I live in Kentucky and I'm married and have two wonderful son's and two spoiled dogs. 

This past week I have been helping my mom go through her numerous quilting patterns and magazines that she has accumulated since the early 1969's. I came across some letters and patterns she has had for years and they were from a group of ladies that called themselves " the Robins". I loved the letters and envelopes of quilt and craft patterns from her group. She explained how her group worked and I'm curious if the fabric swaps , and pattern sharing is something that still goes on and if so I would love to be a part of this. 

I really look forward to meeting everyone and hope to find a group who would want to be a part of a " Robin" bunch 

Well that's about all I know to tell you about myself. If there is anything you would like to know feel free to ask me....paula
