100% Cotton everything! I also hand quilt all of my quilts. I use a hoop so I can be mobile.
CustomsF131
I make quilts to give to friends and family as gifts.
AddNotesF132
My grandmother was a quilter, however, she was not alive when I decided to learn to quilt. This was just something I always wanted to do. I self-taught myself to quilt. i started my 1st quilt in 1994 and I've made 96 quilts in the last 19 years.
