I am 70 years old and have been quilting for about 30 years. We have 8 children and 17 grandchildren and 1 great grandson and 3 great granddaughters. My children: 2 live in Utah, 4 in California, 1 in Arkansas, and 1 in England. My grandchildren: 4 in Utah,4 in Arkansas,5 in England and 3 in California. I love the process of finding the perfect fabric, cutting it out and sewing it back together. I'm not so enthralled with the hand quilting so I send my quilts out to be machine quilted most of the time.
