Trudy's Bio

My name is Trudy and I am a weekend warrior quilter.  When I was 12 I was taught to crochet by a friend of the family and have been making gifts and expanding my craft resume for 32 years.  I began teaching myself  to quilt about 12 years ago but I was not very good at it.  I made the tops just fine but had no idea how to finsh them so I learned the "bag out" method.  As my tops improved, I was desperate to learn to quilt them properly.  I made all the usual mistakes like choosing the wrong batting and seeing my quilt bunch up like mini mountains.  I set out to teach myself and purchased a quilting machine.  It took me about a year to get brave enough to try to stipple and I have been in love with it since.  I have still never had a lesson, aside from what I can learn from a magazine or book,  but have made my family (a very large one at that) extremely happy. 

In my other free time, I run marathons...if you can call what I do running.  It is more like a slow jog but hey, I finish and get my medal and that is all I really want.  :O)
