I am a born again quilter. My grandmother taught me to quilt fifty years ago and I really hated all the cutting by hand. About three years ago. a friend clued me onto rotary cutting and I haven't stopped since. This year I cut , sewn and batted nine quilts and completely finished seven of them. Number eight is being hand-quilted by me everyday and number nine is hanging in the closet ready to hit the machine the minute I have some free time. LOL!!
