    I'm in Hillsboro, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. I'm relatively new to quilting, but I come from a family of quilters (Amish ancestry), and so I feel as if I have quilting in my blood. Now that I've started, I don't want to do anything else. If I'm not quilting, I'm thinking about quilting! I don't know how to say this without sounding completely corny, but it seems to fill me with love for the person who is to receive the quilt that I'm working on. What a great stress buster. I'm enjoying reading your posts and I'm learning so much already. This seems like a friendly and welcoming community. Thank you.

    Welcome from Tucson AZ. Don't think you're corny at all. I think the thoughtfulness and love that goes into a quilt is exactly what we need more of :).

    My husband and I love Tucson. We travel there during the winter when we can. Great city. We lived in Phoenix from 1975-1978 while he attended school.

    Welcome from another Oregonian!! I don't think you are corny either. We pour a lot of ourselves into our projects.

    We moved back here just over 4 yrs ago, was here in 83-86 and loved it. So after I retired we packed up our belongings and moved out here permanently. Have never looked back and love our lifestyle here :).
