    Hello and welcome from southeastern Oklahoma. My maternal grandmother is the person who encouraged me to hand quilt. She gave each of my sons a hand pieced quilt top and told me to get needle and thread and quilt them. I am still working on them - but very slowly. She is now 91 years old and in the nursing home. She has had several health scares during the last 3 or 4 years and quilting on these 2 quilts gives me peace as I remember the good times we have had thru the years. So keep on remembering your grandmother as you are quilting.

    Thank you for all the warm welcome's!!
    It was neat to see all the different places in the country from where they were sent.
    I hope to post pics of my grandmothers quilts sooner than later and the halloween quilt too, probably need the DH's help with that.
    I regularly tell my friend(Lola) about sew many of the interesting things I learn about on QB, I think I have finally peaked her interest when I told her today of the Downey Comfort quilt-Quilts for Kids campaign and the free kits. She would like to hopefully turn this "campaign" into a group project with her quilt group. From reading one link, passing the word, hopefully several quilts will get made. Now, how cool is that??
    I volunteered to make one and signed up the dgg for one too.
    Sewing with the fabric with glitter...I shouldn't really get too concerned it will be only 3 seams. So far my machine seems to be pretty forgiving. I would hate to think that a few pieces of glitter could cause my machine to come to a screeching halt.
    Another note on Dgm's quilts, O'my! my machine quilts are not even close to being in the same league as Dgm's hand made quilts, how humbling.
    I find I sew closely peruse the QB, that time flies, and I forget to "go quilt'. Go figure..
    I am glad to read the good comments and feedback with some of these fabric and thread internet sites, I have ordered some fabric(charm squares) from a different site than those recently mentioned and was really disappointed in the quality so took it as a lesson learned "do not order off the internet"
    Love is; making your niece a blue jean quilt bedspread to take to college during one of the hottest summers on record.
    Tomorrow an AQS show opens here in Des Moines, hope to maybe attend Fri. or Sat.
    Later, J Anne B.

    Welcome to you from the far western reaches of Nebraska. I was also a blank slate when I started because as a youngster I was too busy being a tomboy to learn sewing. I'm glad I waited because now there are so many neat notions and machines.

    I also sew on Pfaff's. One is embroidery and one is not.

    Great things have been done for me,
    and I am filled with joy.
