Elfrieda lives in southern Manitoba and until a few years ago was actively involved in farming with her husband. She has been sewing for over 45 years and made her first quilt about 25 years ago. She has made over 30 full-sized quilts and numerous wall hangings and smaller items which she sold at craft sales. Piecing traditional quilts is a special preference and she wants others to enjoy her finished quilts as much as she does.
