My Bio

My name is Connie.  I have loved quilting and getting creative with digital pictures for the past 10 years....but I have worked 28 years at Pepperidge Farm  and could never find the time to really quilt much, but it was always on my mind and I was always looking at new ideals.  Recently I took an early retirement, so that I could work at my creative side, instead of just thinking about it.  My mother in law got me started with simple 9 patches that you just tie....then I made some rag quilts and then finally took a class and made a log cabin quilt.  Since then, I've made numerous quilts for baby showers and my grand-children, I have 11.

I am a country grand-ma.  I have a horse, mini pony, shetland pony, a cat, a Newfoundland, a Sheltie and a Mutt who could work for Disney.  I love the beach, but have to go on vacation for that.  I love the simple things in life.  I live in the Amish country and love to see the horses in the fields....as I grew up, my father was a horse trainer, so I have a great love for horses and ponies.  Actually, I'm just a plain animal nut.  I like to take pictures of animals and children, that's my favorite.          

I am anxious to meet and talk with other artists as I learn more and more techniques in the quilting arts field.
