About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States
Introduction I've been quilting since 1996 when I was raising two 'tweens, working full time and attending law school at night. I completed 11 quilts that year. I've made mainly traditional, functional quilts. Lately, I find myself leaning more toward a modern art quilty vibe. I've decided to blog about quilting to chronicle my journey through the fabulous world of quilting and to have a record of the things that I've made. In my personal life, I've been married for 20 years to Prince Charming. We have two grown kids (R and T) and are raising sweet and mischievous C, our surprise six year old. I am also an aspiring locavore, and yet another mommy blogger. I occasionally write about my non-quilting life as Not Exactly a Princess.
