Originally from the east coast of England in the county of Suffolk, and now living in the Pacific Northwest in Poulsbo, WA. Have been here since 1997 and love it. I started quilting only a couple of years ago after being impressed by the beautiful fabrics and quilts in our local quilt shop. I was an intermediate sewer so found quilting an easy transition....and a good instruction book helps! It's a great hobby to have, especially with the very rainy fall and winter months we have to endure in this corner of the US.
