I retired almost 10 years ago and decided to learn to quilt at that time. I'm still learning and love quilting year around and gardening when the weather permits. I have two grown sons and four grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 26. I'm presently hand quilting a 63 x 63 quilt made using 30's prints. I'm about to start a queen bed quilt using 3 Sisters prints which I will machine quilt. Like most quilters, I have more fabric than I'll ever use but can't help buying more.

Love the Witch!!! Let me know what you thinkd of the bamboo batting I usually use wool for large quilts , It quilts very easily and washes well, but I hav e wondered about the bamboo, I have Bamboo bath towels and I love them.
