Ruthie W

I live in the same Indiana town I grew up in. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and 3 adult children; my oldest son is a welder, my daughter is a nurse and my youngest son is a Staff Sergeant in the Army (currently in Iraq). I also have 2 stepsons and 5 wonderful grandchildren.  My 8-5 job is with printing company as a graphic designer.

I started quilting about 8 years ago and have made everything from placemats to queen size quilts. I'm a member of a local guild and do my part to keep the local quilt shops in business. My someday dream has come true and I own a long-arm machine. You can visit my website at:
My quilts and other misc. albums can be found at:

When Iím not in my sewing room, I can be found working in my garden and flower beds or spending time with my grandchildren.
