I've been searching my quilting roots here on Farm Girl Roots, City Girl Style, posting quilts from my earlier days and telling stories of how I got started. One of the things I love so much about the internet is the ability to share stories with other like-minded creative people, get feedback from them, and the supportive nature of everyone I've come in contact with. So much so, I love sharing links from some of those I've gotten to know. So here they are.
