Click on the graphic to meet other quilters! I am happy to be part of this Quilters Meet and Greet.
Hello from Idaho! I have been quilting for 31 years. I always say it's all my husband's fault. We moved to Idaho for the summer to help out on the family farm and he told me I had to go to his mother's weekly hand quilting group. I had a baby and the youngest person was in her early 60's. I went to the group off and on that summer and I learned to hand quilt before piecing anything. Over the years I hand quilted many quilts, but it's been years since I have now. I just don't have an interest anymore.
This is one of my early quilts, from a class in 1988. Hand quilted! It's faded and well used.
I have been called a prolific quilter. Who ME? Yes. I discovered quilting magazines early on and PBS quilting shows. I learned everything I could and tried every technique! I made quilts for family and friends and in 1998 I started doing block swaps on the internet. Wow, I got addicted! I never had an unfinished project until then (okay it had only been ten years). I still have a couple projects from the those swaps not finished!
I was a charter member of a quilt guild that formed in 1993 and I have belonged to several yahoo groups, and now Facebook groups. I do spend an amazing amount of time in my quilt room, even though I work full time at a school. I do enjoy my summers off!

One of my other favorite quilts is my Finger Lakes Log Cabin quilt. The pattern is by Judy Martin and it is NOT paper pieced. Some of the pieces finish at 1/4" wide! I think it has 5,206 pieces.
Here is a collage of a few of my other favorite quilts. Since I have made close to 500 quilts from minis to wallhangings, to throw size to king I have a lot of favorites. I have about 250 quilts in my house. I donate a lot and gift a lot of quilts. I need to finish even more and find homes for them.
I hope you will continue to follow my quilting adventures and visit other bloggers in this meet and greet. Click on the link below to enter a contest for prizes!
