My two boys are both twenty-something tech savvy types who call me "end loser."
The younger one (Younger Son or My Little Sailor) nagged me into starting a blog when his brother (Elder Son) pointed out this time last year that I was on track to make 52 quilts in 52 weeks. After that, it was all over but the Blogger registration.
I made my first quilt in 1976 while I was waiting for my fiancee' to return from Air Force technical training school so we could get married. It was a log cabin, using Eleanor Burn's pattern. This was before rotary cutters -- we "snipped" the selvage and tore across the width of the fabric! It was made from blue and mauve calico, and I donated it to the Salvation Army twenty years later.
Favorite quilting tip from my mother: "Measure twice (that's 2, two, TWO TIMES); cut once!"
