Time to to say Hi, and thank everyone for all the amazing inspiring pictures, and wonderful advice. I have been viewing this site for a few years now, and finally ( I can be a bit of a slow starter, computerwise) have figured out how to introduce myself. Its Autumn now here in New Zealand, and just the right weather for quilt making. Your prices for fabric amaze me, the average price of quilting fabric if NZ$24 to $30 a metre (nearly 40 inches). Often wonder if it is because we live at the bottom of the world!
