I've been quilting for 30 plus years. I usually piece by machine but also like to hand piece. Most all of my quilts are hand quilted. Sometimes handquilting and machine quilting especially for lap quilts and twin quilts and most baby quilts. Like all quilters I love fabric, the more the better since I make a lot of scrappy quilts.
I have 5 grown children, 8 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. My oldest granddaughter is 35, the oldest great grandaughter is 17, the youngest grandson is just turned 9. Eight years between my youngest son and my son just older. Family get togethers are great fun.
I don't seem to have a favorite color when making quilts but I do like red, blue, yellow and anything between
I like to garden. Both flowers and veggies and herbs. Favorite flower Hydrangea I have 7 plants not all the same variety.
