Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a quilter/designer for over 34 yrs. I love to create designs out of bold fabrics as my center piece. I am blessed to have a husband and a family that is "very" pro-quilting supportive! And they enjoy being involved with my quilting too :D
How many quilts have you made?
many quilts...many & still have many more to go :)
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
Both, I have always love the history of quilts, and the art of quiltmaking.
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?

Why do you quilt?
I am able to take my creativity and see it unfold into something amazing with the fabrics I select.
I turned 50 on July 28 and for some reason that particular birthday bothered me. None of the others did! I guess I just feel like I should have more accomplished by now!
I've been in a quilting slump since I sold a bunch of my quilts last December. I think I'm in mourning because it was really hard for me to sell them. That was the point, but I didn't think they'd all go at once. So I haven't been able to finish much in quite some time. I have three tops that are in process. One needs the border, one needs the rows sewn together and one needs to be finished piecing. I have always had several in the works at once, but I just can't seem to get it together and finish anything. I started a table runner as well, hoping that by doing something small it would get me in the mood. I was so hooked those first few years of quilting and I just don't get it. I almost feel like I'm bored and I never thought that would happen. That's partly why I joined this site; hoping for some motivation!
I've never been to a quilt show. If I could only go to one show in my lifetime I want to go to Houston. Have you ever gone? Is your quilt show for a guild? I'm in a small town and there isn't a guild, so I really feel like I'm missing out; which is another reason I came here. I figured it would be a great place to meet other quilters, and it is!
