2006 Quilt Goals



As I enter my 6th year as a quilter, my goals are to use up my stash and complete a number of UFO’s that have accumulated over the last few years. In my first year or two as a quilter I started and finished all my projects. I bought a longarm 3 and 1/2 years ago and now I have unfinished tops and various quilts in progress and they seem to keep piling up.

I quilt only for myself and family members with an occasional quilt made for a friend. 75% of the quilts I make are donated to charititable organizations.

To introduce myself, my name is Mary and I’m married with 2 grown sons. My youngest, Adam just finished a culinary program and is now working for the Ritz Carlton. He moved out of the house in November and I am still getting used to him being gone. Chris, my oldest son, graduated from college last May and is living in Savannah. He just announced his engagement and is getting married in October 2006.

My husband is a Sales Director for a medical company and travels frequently for work. I’m an RN but haven’t worked for the last few years. My charity quilting along with traveling with my husband, and a 4 and 1/2 year old Bichon Frise named Chesty keep me busy.
