Hi, I'm Maude and I'm from TN. I'm very new to quilting and have enjoyed these forums enormously. I'm usually an heirloom garment type of seamstress, but my sister encouraged (actually insisted) that I try quilting and I gave it a shot. I've made one baby quilt for my new grandson and I'm finishing up my second baby quilt for a friend of my son.
I suppose I'm a little old fashioned, but the style of quilts I prefer are scrappy or earth tones. Absolutely love the civil war reproduction fabrics but haven't done anything with them yet. At the moment, my plan is to hand quilt all of my quilts. So far I love everything about it. I may be wierd, but I like the sound of the knot popping through the fabric and the feel and sound of the thread pulling through the fabrics and batting. My stitching could be more uniform, but I figure I'll improve as I go forward.
