Her talk was hysterically funny. She described her early quilting adventures: not knowing about seam allowances, so the Lone Star Block came out much smaller than expected, not knowing how to miter a corner, so each one was bad in a different way, the sheets (including the label) used for backing. A memorable line: It's easy to get small quilting stitches. Use cotton thread, fabric, and batting, and boil it.
