As a child I did many sewing craft projects through Girl Scouts and for fun - both on the machine and by hand. My mom & aunt did cross-stitch and I learned this skill and enjoyed making lots of different projects. As a Scout I sewed all my badges on my uniform, made costumes for various events and had fun as a kid making friendship bracelets and hair wraps!

When I went off to college I didn't have much time for quilting, but Momm joined the local guild, a mini group, took some classes and kept me updated on all the new things she was learning. My first quilt resulted from being a part of the mini group when I was home on breaks. We started a group challenge: we chose the Sister's Choice block and the colors had to come from a print that was given to everyone. So we each made 9 blocks in our chosen layout and traded them around. I pieced them into a top, machine quilted it and used store-bought binding (gasp!) to finish it.

I love sharing my love of quilting with others, being inspired by the exhibits and award-winning quilts in our collection and being able to advance my own skills as I continue to create quilts!
