Carol, from Tempe, Arizona here. I'm 49 and have an 18 year old daughter (U Wisconsin bound) and a 15 year old son.
My daughter is a figure skater, and my son plays hockey, hence my name <-----

I started quilting with all of their t shirts....I couldn't bear to throw away all of those t shirts with their names listed....so I cut them up and made quilts out of them. I slowly expanded into the jelly roll races, then onto more complicated ones....
Now, I just love to make quilts and give them away. This year I gave quilts to 3 teachers, who each wrote 9 recommendation letters for my daughter's college applications. They absolutely loved them!
