ABOUT

Me and My ManHowdy. My name is Becky. I am a quilter.

I’ve been sleeping under handmade quilts ever since before I was born, thanks to my talented grandmother. I hold her partially responsible for my addiction to fabrics, stitches, and patterns. The rest of the responsibility is owed to my local community of library quilters. They all got me into this mess. And thank goodness!
