    Hi from Ohio

    Hi! I just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I'm Leslie and live in central Ohio. I started quilting about 20 years ago. Then about 10 years ago I stepped out of quilting for a while to do scrapbooking while my son was young - seemed more important at that point to capture the pictures and stories behind them and I was struggling to keep up with quilting, scrapbooking, being a mom, and working full time. I always knew I would return to quilting some day, even though my hubby was sure all that "quilt stuff" was just taking up space.

    About a year ago I had an opportunity to go to a small weekend quilt retreat with a few friends. I picked a couple table runner patterns to start out small. I spent 2 hours at the beginning just remembering how things worked on my machine and practicing a perfect 1/4" seam. In those 3 days I pieced a table runner using batiks and did a quilt as you go table runner using fall colors. I was back to quilting!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. You might like to go back to your profile page and ad Ohio as your location. It makes it easier if people know where you are from when you ask a question of where to buy something.
