I enjoy hand quilting even though sometimes it seems to take forever. I can sit and watch t.v or be in company of my husband while quilting rather than being away in the sewing room
I become interested in The Underground Railroad stories of the slavery period in America and made a sampler quilt of the supposed quilt code, along with a number of quilts to illustrate the story. I have given talks to a number of groups, W I, Inner Wheel, Womans Register etc. all fairly local to me, to raise funds for Parkinson's UK. My husband is a sufferer and to date I have raised in the region of £1600.
