I love the process of creating quilts. I have only been doing this for 4 years but am hooked. I also play the violin and piano. I have 2 grandchildren, a granddaughter, Jocelyn (3) and a grandson, Austin (6months). My husband and I have been married 38 years. I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son lives in Kentucky and has my two grandchildren. My daughter is a dancer on Holland America Cruise Lines and is away most of the time traveling the world. I have two wonderful black and white cats, litter mates, who are 8 years old.
Paper piecing isn't as hard as it looks. A friend bought the booklet "Show Me How to Paper Piece" by Carol Doak several years ago and we tried it together. If you start with a simple block, it's pretty simple. The tutorial on Connecting Threads is good too! The wall hanging we made from my friend's booklet is the red and white heart one on my page. Thanks for your kind comments! Talk to you again soon!
