Hi from Webster NY

by Susan
(Webster NY)

Hi New to this forum. I'm a retired Special Ed teacher (11 yrs retired) and started quilting a little before I retired. My adult daughter taught herself to quilt so I asked her to get me started. I've sewn clothes for most of my adult life so thought it would be easy to learn. Well, since I was still working and didn't have a lot of time it wasn't so easy. I discovered I was too impatient and not exact enough - I made a couple of "seat of my pants" quilts for my toddler grandson. Fast forward to retirement - now I had time, but I still like to make it up as I go along. I get bored easily and find that following a repetitive pattern is not for me. I make my 2 grandsons quilts every Christmas and have so many projects in mind it's mind boggling! My quilts are FAR from perfect but they always contain a lot of love (and often a few not so good words!). Am looking forward to seeing other's work and tips.

On the personal side, I am married for 50+ years, have a daughter, SIL, and 2 outstanding grandsons. Our son recently passed away and I have one of my very 1st quilts I made ( a gift to him) on my bed. I love big dogs - am on my 3rd St. Bernard (all rescues) and we have a camp in the Adirondacks in NYS where I grew up (a really tiny town).
