When did you begin your first quilt?

I have been sewing for 50 years. I made my first quilt for my daughter in 1982.

When I'm not quilting, I like to:

I love being with my family, especially the grandkids!!  I love my friends, going to lunch, and enjoying life with them.  I read when I want to relax and I quilt for my creative side and "therapy"!  HA!

I love the new fabrics and all the great ideas of the young quilters.  I would like to have programs and gain more knowledge from other quilters.

When did you begin your first quilt?

I played with quilting when I was a teenager and young adult. When my children were born I made little baby quilts, but I really started to quilt in earnest when my passion for painting began to wane. I seemed too busy to get the paints out and get something done, but the quilting could stay in progress. I kept working on pieces and found that I liked it so much better than any form of artistic expression. Now, when people ask me what I do I always say, I am a quilter.

When I'm not quilting, I like to:

I keep in touch with my friends through Instagram. ladyrosien is the name I use on Instagram.

I spend time seriously writing when on vacation in the summer.  Like my quilts, my novels are WIPs that I hope will not become UFOs.

I enjoy shopping for interesting things to decorate my house and I love to cook.  I get tired of same old same old so I often am trying to create something new to entertain my heart.

What do you hope to gain by joining the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild?

When we moved to Colorado I left a lifetime of family and friends In California.  My quilting buddies were so far away.  I wanted to become acquainted with people who live near enough to share time and ideas in person.  The FRMQG has really met that need.  I am so stoked to find a group of people who are not conventional quilters.  I like to do different things and not feel as though I didn't do it "right" because I approached it in a non-traditional manner.
