    Hi! My name is Emily and I am a fairly novice quilter from Missouri. I have been sewing since I was 8 (I started in 4-H) but gave it up after I was out of 4-H because I hated fashion sewing. When I was just out of college I worked with a quilter who got me hooked on it, and now I am completely addicted! I am married and my husband is a pretty good sport about my addiction, considering how I spend more time with my new Pfaff than I do with him :) I am a bit of a fabric freak, and I need to stop buying and finish a few projects.

    I have machine quilted a few quilts in the ditch and one I criss-crossed, but I would really like to learn free-motion. I am afraid, however, because I'm really not that artsy and I'm pretty sure I would suck at it. Any tips on getting started with that would be appreciated!

    Welcome from Alabama. Like they say practice, practice, practice. You'll get there with practice.
