I thought that I'd start out by showing the quilts that I've done. Don't worry, there aren't that many - I'm not a very fast quilter.
It all started back in the 90's. I had sewn for myself (dorky homemade look most of the time, but there were a few winners), then for my kids, until they outgrew the dorky homemade look, then a lot of home dec (which turned out pretty well - not dorky at all!). I was always frustrated with the big box fabric stores, and kept wandering into this lovely little shop called The Fabric Cottage. But all they carried was quilting cotton - no fashion fabrics, no drapery. Each time, though, I marvelled at the wonderful quilts on the walls. Finally, I got up my nerve and asked if they had classes. To my delight, they did.
This was my first quilt.
