Greetings from Bakersfield California! I’m a 73 year young retired Computer programmer with a BS in Mathematics. Sewing clothes for myself began at age 9. Having a grandmother who quilted, I decided to make one of my own by 1980. I had also developed an interest in drawing and painting the last year of college. I used acrylics on raw, unprimed canvas to create Abstract Stain Paintings between 1977 and 2004. My husband and I moved a lot but I finally took a Craftsy on-line class learning fusing and hand embroidery. After making 9 small Art quilts in 2014-2016, I decided I wanted to create better Abstract Art Quilts and felt Jane’s class in Composition would help me create more interesting art work as quilts.
