Norma here,
Consider myself a newbie - lots of garment sewing for my girls when they were small; had made table runners before (SITD) but never a full quilt - currently working on two with more planned soon :)

Hello. I am Kerry (KerryA). I live in Washington state and have been quilting on and off for the past 5 years or so. I have made 6 quilts. I am currently working on 3 and have a stash and list of a few more I want to make. It is becoming addicting finding patterns I want to try.

Hi Jenni and welcome! How wonderful that you are sharing your skills with the next gen. My Grandma quilted but I never go to spend time with her to learn. So you all are my teachers - well, after Jenni Doan of course!
