I've been sewing since I was a teenager. Over the years I had a great time making clothes for my six kids when they were young. It was great fun picking out something special for each one to wear on the first day of school. More recently, I've tried several quilts and they came out great, but somehow I was never able to get excited over quilt blocks.Recently, however I was cruising around the internet and stumbled over a site about art quilts. WELL!! That got my attention and generated the excitement I'd been hoping to find. So now, I'm learning all I can about art quilting techniques and designs and I think I'll soon be getting busy on my first creation. WOO HOO!
