 Big thanks to Pat for sending me this license plate.....SewBlest!

Part of my quilting history, EPP that I sat and worked on in the 22 months I waited in the ALS clinic with my husband.  At the end of the time, I made these into coasters, backed with felt, for friends who gave me such great support during that terrible time.
My grandmother taught me to sew at 13.  My mother refused to buy me clothes, but agreed to buy me fabric all throughout high school.  First year of college, I started handpiecing quilting blocks as I waited in line for, the bookstore, lunch,.... I taught myself to quilt using these Foxfire books. I graduated college in 1969
