What a great time with Karen Kay Buckley and her journey of Quilting not only was she so entertaining with her journey but the quilts she shared were very inspiring. Karen Kay spoke of her beginnings and the support she received from her dear husband, inspiration on a journey that brings us from her first block to magnificent designs created by her.
