I have been an avid reader for several years but finally decided to join in. I am a self-taught quilter. Have only been quilting for the last few years but I have been sewing since high school. I also crochet alot in the winter. I really enjoy the beautiful quilts shown. Some are very intimidating. Not sure I'll ever be that good. I have learned alot from all of you and really appreciate the suggestions and advice given here.
