I've been lurking here since February, and decided it was time to complete my profile and introduce myself! I've been quilting since the early 1970s. My first quilt was a crazy quilt pieced together on an antique treadle sewing machine. It was crib size, for a new baby niece. I just guessed how to sew it together as I didn't have a pattern or any instructions. Learned a lot since then and have upgraded my equipment, but there is always so much more to learn! I live 30 miles south of San Francisco, and am thinking of joining the local quilt guild. Anyone here from my area?
I have sewn a bunch of baby quilts recently, as my children have produced eight grandchildren in the past eight years. I think that phase is over and I will be able to move on to other projects. I also have started designing my own patterns, but I am just at the beginning stages and will soon get the EQ7 program so I can pursue this in earnest.
anyway, I am a bit stuck as to how to proceed with a quilt back - but I think I will move over to the "Main" thread to explain my dilemma. Thanks for being here, and I'm sure I will enjoy participating in this forum!
