Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Cathy and my blog is Big Lake Quilter.   I met Miki through Bumblebeans and 15 minutes play.  I want to thank her for getting us all together and making this possible.

Now for a little bit about myself.  I'm 61 years old, married to Terry, 4 children, 1 stepson and 4 wonderful grandchildren.  I have been making quilts for about 25 years.  It started as a casual hobby and has since taken over my life.  I eat, drink and sleep quilts.  I have started designing my own quilts.  And I love making a quilt from a photo.

Here is a photograph I took at Seney Wildlife Refuge.

Here is the quilt I made.

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and seeing what you all come up with while reading our books.

I just ordered my book from Amazon and it should be here next week.  Can't wait to start.

Hugs, Cathy
