Quilting was on my "bucket list" for quite some time. After learning the basics from a good friend, I can say that I became addicted. The quilt that is in my profile picture is the first quilt. It was completely made BY HAND - I did not have a sewing machine. After I completed 2 more quilts - a wedding present for my god-daughter, and a college graduation gift for my daughter - I knew that my fingers needed the aid of a new sewing machine. I prefer HAND quilting my items - yes it takes longer - but I love the tradition and the journey with all my items!!!
