About the Quilter:
Nita Howell Forks a lifelong resident of Pike Road is a new quilter. She is a Master Gardener and gourmet cook and not interested in needlework. However, quilting was not new to her. She grew up with her mother quilting all around her. She finally consented to join her mother, sister and a few quilters on a trip to Ozark, Alabama, to a great little quilt shop. She enjoyed the day and picked up on several quilting terms. Her mother, Evielean Howell, suggested she try a “cake stack,” which is a package of 42 coordinating pre-cut 10-inch squares. She completed the project, making a nice-size cuddle quilt for her couch. She is a member of the Pike Road Quilters.
