I've been sewing since I was a little girl. My Mom started me off with sewing cards with a big needle and yarn. Then I moved on to hand sewing and made clothes for my Barbie dolls. When I was in Fourth Grade, my elementary school offered an after school sewing program, where I learned to use a pattern and sew on a sewing machine. The first thing I ever made was a halter top with matching shorts (it was the 1970s).
I started quilting by accident in 1989. I was newly married and only a few years out of college. I commuted an hour each way to work, so I had started to knit on the train. The closest knitting shop also offered quilting classes. My husband and I had opposing work schedules, so I had a lot of time on my hands. The shop owner sold me Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day log cabin book and signed me up for a class and a quilter was born! I divorced that husband a long, long time ago, but I've been a quilter ever since!
Did I mention that I like to shop for fabric?
