Manteca Quilters

Annual Quilt and Cloth Doll Show

I've lived in Manteca most of my life. I started sewing when I was in grammar school. My girlfriend and I made a lot of our own clothes. I used to make my kids clothes when they were small. I started working for the mosquito and vector control so that put my sewing on hold for about 30 years. My step daughter Vicki joined Manteca Quilters and after a month or so I got interested in what she was doing so I joined.  I have been a member for probably 29 years. I like doing all types of quilting but my favorite is applique. I do a lot of pieced quilts as well. I've been doing block of the month at Quilters Hollow in Stockton which is interesting and fun ( 
I have grown fond of table runners, table-toppers, and candle mats. It seems I can get those made quickly. Instant gratification!!
