Fabric paint photo

I learned how to sew and embroider by hand when I was in second grade, taught by my grandmother and my great aunt.  I got my first sewing machine when I was in 5th grade and have been sewing ever since.

I have been quilting on and off for over 35 years,  Quilting “obsessively” (as my husband says) for the last 15+ years.   I have been a Traveling Quilt Teacher for about the last 8 years. Just about all quilting styles appeal to me.  Handwork and machine, traditional to art quilts. I love to try new techniques and ‘tweak’ old ones to make them new and fresh!

I have a small rigid heddle loom to weave my own fabric to incorporate into some of my art quilts. I love playing with the different textures that you can get from different fibers!  I also crochet and knit, and am learning how to tat lace.  Never a dull moment!

Personal info: I am married to a career Army man (35 yrs Active Duty !!)  and have traveled all over the world.  We have lived on 3 continents….I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve packed and moved ! 3 children -  2 daughters and 1 son.   The girls are in Indiana, my son is in the Army and his location changes as often as ours does. 4 grandchildren  - 2 girls and 2 boys, all of them in Indiana. 2 cats, crazy and stupid, but lovable anyway.

Thanks for Sharing in my Quilting Adventures!!
