My name is Karlene and I live in Abilene TX. I moved to Texas from Colorado three years ago and I am still adjusting to the warm weather and still missing the mountains. This picture is of me and my very best friend Chuck who lives in Montana (one of my favorite places). My son Andrew and his wife Amy are both in the Army.
been making quilts since I was around 6 years old. No one in my
family sewed, but my mother had a sewing machine she used for patching.
It fascinated me so she let me use it and I cut up an old chenille
and some pieces of flannel and put them together for my first quilt, which
still have yet today. So, I am "self-taught" but sure have
learned a lot
along the way. In 1980, I saw a rotary cutter and thought it was
much fun and that everyone should have one. I love to teach
quilt-making. Scrap quilts and sampler quilts are my favorites. I like to make
quilts just for the pure fun of it and I like quilts to be used and loved
much they wear out. I feel that God has given me quilting as a gift
this has helped me in the healing process of so many difficult situations
that life has hit me with.
