Quilt Portfolio

My first quilt was started in 1987 when I was still in graduate school.  For the next 14 years I was busy building a career, getting married and starting a family.  In 2001 at the urging of My Guy, I started taking classes at a local quilt shop and haven't stopped piecing since.  I finally finished that first quilt in 2004, my very first finish.  Some years I finish a lot, some years not so many.  After "crashing" two computers in less than 2 years, I want to have my quilt history somewhere else besides a hard drive.  That's the main reason for this page, but maybe you'll get some inspiration off what's here.
