Hi everyone, I stumbled on this site about a week ago & enjoy the posts and photos. There are some very talented quilters here with absolutely beautiful work! I am jealous of those with a long-arm quilter. I am a nurse by trade but a seamstress at heart. I started sewing when I was six years old and just realized that was almost 50 years ago (ugh!!) My current passion is quilted purses; just taught myself free-form quilting on my 30-year-old Viking sewing machine - addicted!
