70 years young and widow. I love to quilt but get lazy about it in summer. I have made quilts for my 3 sons and their wifes plus 2 quilts each for my 6 grandchildren and 1 for my great grandson. My sister and sis-in-law quilt also so we all have quite a stash of fabric.
. I am just a very happy person who loves to sew. Besides sewing I love to read and we like to travel in the US. Just to get away and see different things and people.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, embroidery, crazy quilting
does anyone here hale from Indiana, I would love to join a quilt group and even have room in my home. My days ARE PRETTY SOLITARY BECAUSE i LIVE IN A VERY SMALL TOWN IN FARM COUNTRY AND I DO NOT DRIVE. as you can see, my neuro cnditionmakes my little finger flirt with the caps-lock key. I really like the idea for communicating on line but my typing is terrible because I have trouble controlling my fingers.

Hi! It is true that I like bright colors, but also deep rich colors. I also do a lot with applique but I make my on. Currently I am working on a quilt for my grandaughter. It is taking me forever. She tolme she wanted pink and purple with ladybugs and butterflies. She likes bright colors, interestingtextures and interesting techniques. I have combined machine quilting (on my home machine) flower design by machine, applique, multi layered applique, hand embroidery, machine freehand embroidery, buttons and whatever else crosses my mind.
I made her a hanging for her crib when she was a baby, much smaller but similar techniques. She loved to look at and touch, rub her hands over and look at all the different textures. She is just as fasinated in dance, sports and art. Her mother says her personality is all my fault (mom is a personnel director and dad is a financial analyst.
Hope to finish and give her the quilt this weekend.
