  84. I have been quilting for about 12 years now, each quilt I have made was for someone I loved and given with as much love. I have yet to make something for myself, I have decided to make either a Wedding Ring or Baltimore Album or both. I have started to pick out the fabrics and can't wait to start piecing them together.
