Judy is having us talk about our quilting life for those in our lives. Here is her first question. I figure I'll blog about it.
Question #1: What year did you begin quilting? What made you start quilting?
I think I originally started quilting in 1986/87, when I was in South Dakota. I was learning the Dresden plate and wasn't really interested in it. That was before the rotary cutter and all had to be cut out with scissors. I did start a queen sized quilt with calico prints. That finally was finished in 2004. I didn't really like it, but it was finished. LOL I didn't really start quilting again until I was in Los Angeles and friends at work were quilters. I took a class at a community college with friends and learned that I really enjoyed the process. From there I have been quilting more and more. When I retired I bought a long arm quilt machine and can make my quilts start to finish in my own studio.
