I am a retired teacher. I have been quilting for 30 years. I live at the beach in New York City, very near JFK airport. I belong to the Rockaway Artist Alliance ,The Bklyn Quilter's Guild and The Long Island Quilters.
I wish that the quilting would show up better in the photo. My LAQ in Waddington, New York, bought a pattern with swimmers for the quilt and then added 2 sizes of ocean waves for the borders. My grandson is a swimmer and I made the quilt for him to take to University in the Fall. He will be swimming for his school and is in the top 10 in Canada for his speciality.
