I started quilting in March 2010, took a beginners class at Joann,s , but mostly learned from books , tutorials, and finally found Jenny Doan,s classes online. One of my favorites is 1930,s reproductions. Eleanor Burns egg money quilt book. After a year and a half of quilting or piecing in our kitchen and Master bedroom, my DH built me a room in our garage. Its a dream come true. I live in North Florida with my DH, 22 yr. old son, and two Dachsaunds. Also have 25 yr. old Daughter, son in law and two grand children. 3 yrs and 7 months. They are the light of my life. I feel truly blessed. And must add, have become quite the quilt a holic, Love all that beautiful fabric out there and just have to buy it. .My all time favorite is flannel baby quilts, which I started donating to charities.
