Hello from hot and steamy Texas - what a time I chose to learn to quilt!! (And what on earth did folks here DO before air conditioning??!) I'm not from here, but I married a Texan, so here I am.
I'm still working on my very first quilt, and I'm "cheating" on it, as I found a cute baby panel when I visited the quilt store! My sewing machine was in the shop for a tune up, as all I had sewed on it for 25+ years was mending, and I just couldn't wait, so I decided to try hand quilting! And I'm actually enjoying it!
After I finish this one, I have to take a break to do a wedding present in counted cross-stitch (a request), then I want to try piecing a couple of potholders. Rag quilting also looks quick & fun! I'm extremely hesitant to even consider one of those quilts with what looks like 1,000 little pieces, but I'm trying to keep an open mind. Even the *thought* of triangles scares me, but one step at a time, right?
Glad to find this board, and look forward to learning alot!
