My grandmother, who taught me to sew, was a quilter. She used a treadle sewing machine to make most of her quilts. I treasure the quilts that she made that are now in my possession.
My late husband's grandmother was also a quilter. I have a few quilts that she made for his family including a Nile green and white quilt made for his parents 1933 wedding. The pattern she used was called Single Wedding Ring. (It is also known as the Crown of Thorns pattern.)
I am a member of AQS (American Quilter's Society), CTPQG (CT Piecemakers Quilt Guild) and the Connecticut chapter of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates).
I was an elementary school library media specialist for 20 years and I retired from teaching in 2014.
