|My great grandmother|
My great grandmother quilted. She gave my parents a quilt when they were married. As children, we played Matchbox cars on that quilt.

In 2011, I signed up for a quilting class at my church. I made my first quilt, a mini quilt. I rushed so that I could show the finished quilt to my daddy at Thanksgiving. The rest of the class hadn't even started to hand quilt theirs yet. Thus, I taught myself how to hand quilt and bind. My daddy was please that I finally wanted to learn sewing in some form.
My father died from Alzheimer's in November 2009. As a tribute to him and his mother, I wanted to find a Singer treadle sewing machine for myself, and sew on it. In August/September 2010, I acquired three Singer treadle sewing machines in 4 weeks. I have sewn on the first treadle, a Singer 15 series from 1896. My daddy and my grandmother would have been so happy.
