How I got started Quilting.

So, as if I needed one more hobby, I have taken up quilting.  I ran across a baby quilt made for me by my Great Aunt Daisy and hung it on our bedroom wall.  The wheels started turning (not always a good thing) and I thought about how wonderful it is to still have it and a part of her.  How great would it be to make one for each of my kids and grands (grand count at this time is 7).  I have always loved sewing but making clothes was just not a thing I liked.  I would start something and then loose interest.

 A lady (friend) I follow on YouTube, Trish Peek, quilts and I watched some of her videos.  At first I thought I would take a class but the more I studied up on it and watched videos, I began to think I could do this without a class.  My dear hubbie, who is my greatest fan, said he thought so too.  I decided to make a "throw" or lap quilt for all my grands (7) and kids and other family and friends.

I now can not even begin to imagine NOT quilting.  Crafting is also a big part of my life and I love to create with stained glass too.
