Favorite material is 100% cotton fabrics. The patterns if any, are changed to fit the quilter's artistic sensitivity. (I am calling myself the quilter in 3rd person)
CustomsF131
My aunt Olivia sat at the entrance of their general store piecing squares of bright color fabrics. As a child in Mexico I loved to see her creations. I knew someday I would also piece bright-colored fabrics.
