Retired mother of two adult children, I changed from sewing to quilting about 10 years ago. Now branching out into art quilt world. Love selecting fabrics and piecing, don't like quilting. Even with traditional quilts, rarely do I follow a pattern completely...something has to change to make it mine. I give away most of my quilts, and love doing something to make the quilt special for the person getting it. Oh, yes, my stash...I have enough to make comfort quilts for all children in third world countries....but I'm working on it. Off now to design/customize a quilt for a friend who is retiring. My stash calls.
