I retired from banking in 2009. July 2010 I purchased a Babylock Quest Plus sewing machine and took my first quilting class in September. We made the Log Cabin from Eleanor Burns book. Since then I have completed many quilts, table runners, placemats, bags of all sizes and shapes. I enjoy making all types of projects. I began sewing my freshman year in high school and continured sewing clothes for myself and my two daughters until they preferred clothes from stores. Then I didn't sew any more until 2010. I have been told I became addicted to quilting very quickly. I truly enjoy it.
