    Cool New here from the redwoods

    My name is Melinda, and I started quilting 25 years ago. I've sewn since I was 12, and I thought quilting would be a piece of cake.... Famous Last Words, etc.! I entered my Very First Quilt in the county fair one summer (the category was your First/Worst Quilt, or some such) and was able to see just how far I've actually come since then. My output is very small so far, as they all get given away. I have one in progress that will be for my own bed. One smalllll problem - I had a queen bed when I started it, and now that it's nearly finished, I have down sized to a double. I can't possibly lose any of my quilt! I'll just have to put the bed up on stilts! That'll work, won't it?! Meantime, I'm working on a Christmas quilt for DD#2, and just finished baby quilt # 4 or 5, I can't remember!

    I also love to garden and read and bake. I have 3 grown daughters, and a husband, and 2 cats who LOVE to help me sew... I just have to make sure nobody's allergic to cats...

    Hi Melinda and welcome to the board. Just get a set of bed lifts and it should be fine. You may have to take a running jump to get on the bed but what the heck!
