I am brand new to quilting, but I hope my background in sewing, stitching and a plethora of other craft interests over the years will be a good foundation. I inherited the makings of a Butterfly quilt from my husband's grandmother years ago, and always thought I would figure out how to finish it "someday." I have a propensity for always choosing to learn by doing the most challenging project, I'm sure quilting will be the same way... there are so many absolutely gorgeous patterns out there. I work full time, train at the gym 6 days a week and try to do an organized 5K or 10K every month. I am the mother of a wonderful son and daughter with 5 grandchildren. My "extended" family includes several more grandkids. My very good friend and I also have a photography business.
