My mother, on the other hand, was a knitter, and she passed that craft on to me as well. I started quilting seriously in the mid 1980s, moved away from it for a few years in the early 2000s, and am now back.
I had a project "in the works" when I got involved with the (now sadly defunct) Kansas City Historic Sampler Guild in the 1990s. My quilting fell by the wayside when I got totally immersed in the world of historic counted thread needlework. My project sat, partially quilted, until earlier this year.
I blame/thank the quilters at my church for getting me started again!
It's machine pieced (both front and back) and hand quilted. It was finished on 3/15/2017.
