Who, Me?

Welcome to My Sew-Called Quilts! I've been quilting since 2010 when my sweet Mom passed away and I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands. Both my grandmothers were quilters, and I wish I had been smart enough to learn from them when I was younger!

I am a farm-raised Okie living in the beautiful Sam Houston National Forest in Deep East Texas. I was born and raised in northeastern Oklahoma, got a degree in mathematics, and married my childhood sweetheart. We've been married 48 years and have two children and four grandchildren.

I am retired from my catering company, For Goodness Sake, and now spend my days planning my next quilt. When I'm not quilting I enjoy needlework, crochet, crafting, and gardening.

Some odd facts about me:
  • I am a trained storm spotter for the National Weather Service, so that officially makes me a weather geek.
  • I have my Conceal Carry license and enjoy shooting pistols (at a paper target!)
  • I intended to use my degree in Mathematics to teach junior high math, but I had a baby instead and never got around to renewing my teacher certification.
  • I may be the only Republican quilter in the US.
