    Hello from Southern AZ

    Hi, everyone!! I am a 33 year old full-time college student who only recently started sewing. I am working on my first hand quilted quilt, still piecing the blocks together. I plan to do this quilt 100% by hand and if I enjoy the process, I might buy a sewing machine and get into it more. Looking forward to learning from this group!

    Welcome from Southern California! My first quilt was hand sewn and quilted also, until I got to the binding. That was sewn on by machine and then hand sewn to the back. It was my plan to do it all by hand, then I read the Amish consider it okay to use a treadle machine and still be call made by hand. (I was given my great-great aunt's treadle so it worked out well for me.)
    Good luck, you will find a lot of help with any questions you may have.

    I've never done any hand piecing, but good luck to you. You will love this board and all the things you will learn. And welcome from the beautiful mountains of western NC.

    Welcome from Gilbert, AZ. My husband has family in Tucson so I have enjoyed visiting the area for several years. Have you discovered the Lucky Wishbone and Eggee's yet?
