I've owned my quilt shop since 1990, specializing in antique reproduction fabrics. Made my first quilt in 1976 which greatly reduced my sewing of clothing! Would like to find more time to SEW.......maybe when I retire? Am married to a farmer, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who are the light of my life!!! And now there are 3 great-grandchildren and another due in January 2019!

Always new books and magazines to read! When you are a Quilter who is also interested in the History of Quiltmaking and the Women who made them, you buy every book available on the subject just to see if there is a quilt that you have not yet seen somewhere else! These two books, huge books, are wonderful! Photos are often full-page. In "Quilts Around the World" I found that quilts are made in some form in unexpected places. This book also delves into history as well as contemporary work "from Alabama to Zimbabwe"! In "Quilts:Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum" are 200 of the most important quilts in their collection.....full-page....can see the handquilting! With books aplenty in my home, I'll Never be bored!! And another new one is ordered.....the new An Moonen book on Netherlands' Quilts which I am sure will have closeup photos of old European fabrics I've not yet seen!
