In 2003 I took a class to learn how to quilt. I wanted to make a quilt from my son's baby clothes. My first quilt was sewn and quilted entirely by hand, and is pictured above. This hobby has blossomed into a true love of quilting and sewing. I have completed over 40 quilts, including the quilt of my son's baby clothes, completed in 2018(!). I have learned so much about the art of quilting. My Mom is an accomplished quilter and helped guide my early quilts. Some of my first quilts became what I like to call "doorway quilts": I would display them on a bed but only allowed them to be viewed from the doorway. A few years later, my best friend, Leora, wanted to learn how to quilt. It has been one of my greatest blessings to share the art and love of quilting with her. And as it sometimes happens, the student surpassed the teacher: Leora has made some incredible quilts. My favorite lesson of hers is this: "it is as big as it is." Around 2014, I joined the General Henry Dearborn Quilt Guild. I am so lucky to call these ladies my Squad. Their talent and experience is only transcended by their encouragement and support. I am looking forward to learning new techniques and skills and making a lot more quilts!
