Living and Learning

I fell in love with quilting back in New Jersey sometime after I retired from my day job. I happened upon a group of ladies who loved to quilt, knit and crochet. They invited me to join their group, which met monthly in the homes of group members. The leader of the group was Ruth Woodward, an experienced quilter and friend. Over the 3 or 4 years that the group met, I learned alot about quilting from Ruth and others in the group. I also took classes at Pennington Quilt Works. There I did two year’s worth of block of the month projects. Each block being a lesson in itself.
When I was contemplating my move to North Carolina and was down here looking for a place to live, I saw a small quilt exhibit at the Aquarium and that was my introduction to the Quilters by the Sea Guild. When I moved to Wilmington, I joined the guild. It has been a wonderful learning experience for me. I am now also a member of the Sew Pieceful Quilting Bee, which has an experienced long arm quilter as our group leader. I am so thankful for the opportunities to learn this craft, both in NJ and in NC. All of the baby quilts on my website were done here in NC. The other projects were from New Jersey.
