Sandie Cohen started quilting 10 years ago on the recommendation of an artist friend, whom she had asked for painting lessons.
“I have virtually no drawing or painting skills,” Cohen laughs. “But I’ve always been a very good sewer. My grandfather was a tailor. I made my children’s clothes when they were young. It seemed like quilting might come natural to me.”
She’s now crafted over 50 quilts.
