    Smile Happy New Year!

    Hi there, the last thing I did in the last hour of 2012 was to join up with QB. Recently read the entire Dear Jane 2012/2013 posting and just loved how supportive and friendly people are. I haven't done a lot of quilting. My first was Nancy Halvorsen's Beattitudes, which amazingly turned out well. My second is Tailfeathers which I haven't finished quilting yet but it is not perfect and I'm grumpy with it and lost a bit of confidence. MY third is a 1930s print thing with squares set on point, not bad but haven't started quilting it yet. This is a request form my 18 yo. daughter who is moving into a flat with other students tomorrow. (We have both been tearful- she is moving a whole 15 minutes walk away! yes, we have offered to carry her bed down to her new place, but she thought that might be embarrassing. I thought I needed a challenge this year and I definitely need to improve my skills so I've nearly collected enough stuff for a Dear Jane. I plan to start this weekend. I love appliqué and embroidered quilts best but thought I should try other things. one thing I really am enjoying since getting into quilting is learning more about American history and art/ crafts/design which I hadn't really thought about much before. Hope everyone is looking forward to a new year of stitching.

    Hello and welcome. You will find this board a great source of information, ideas and inspiration. We hail from all over the planet....even Australia. Look forward to seeing some of your work.....oh...and when they leave home....15 minutes away seems like the other side of the world....my last bird flew the nest a year ago....still miss him (and he is a total pain in the neck).

    Welcome from Texas. I slip and slid into Gander one time, years ago, on a military plane. The building was a hanger and it was so cold. Again, welcome.

    Welcome from Oregon!
    The thing I like about quilting is that it's an ideal stress reliever.I come home from work,start to work on my quilting,and everything falls into place. I' ve met a lot of fine folks,learned about history,and appreciated the diversity across time and cultures. Most quilters are very positive...I had one lady ( who obviously hated the quilt I made) tell me that I had chosen " lovely thread"! LOL!
