I don't know when I learned to quilt, it seems like I've always known. I grew up in a quilting family, my mother quilted as did both my grandmothers. The church I grew up in had an active sewing circle. I attended along with my mother and grandmothers during summer when I wasn't in school and quilted on the quilts that were in the frames. I just grew up in a quilting world and thought everyone knew how to quilt.
My quilting life took a major advance in January 2006 when I joined the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild. Since joining the guild I have learned to hand applique, machine applique, English paper-piecing and I have even started doing some machine quilting using my home sewing machine.
I am no longer a member of the guild, I appreciate all the skills I learned and the encouragement I received.
After spending so much time at home during the covid pandemic, I decided to keep staying at home so I could accomplish more with my time.
I'm basically a hand quilter but do utilize the skill of long-arm quilters.
