Cheryl's quilt I started my quilt when I was 11 in about 1980. A babysitter taught me to do it. I've taken it around the world with me and I tried to leave it behind a couple of times, but it kept being returned to me! I got it out of the loft this January when my husband told me he was leaving me. It's been a great source of comfort. It's almost finished now and it's huge!
