My grandmother started my quilting experiences at age 9 by teaching me how to applique. I finished my first baby quilt when I was 12, made for a new cousin. I have worked with fabric all of my life, as my mother used to give me washcloths to play with during church when I was 18 months old. My favorite thing to include on/in quilts is applique. I have taught applique, piecing, quilit finishing for several years now and really enjoy working with others during the quilt making process. I have recently retired and am looking forward to being able to participate in more groups and doing more of the things I enjoy.
