    My name is Laura (nickname Mike). I've been quilting since 1988. I belong to a guild in Morris, IL, Pieces From The Heart Quilt Guild. Small but good. Love scrap quilts and batiks are just my all time favorite. Have enjoyed seeing all the pictures posted, but don't expect much from me in that department because I'm totally out of my league with computers and such. Looking forward to making good quilt friends on QB.

    Welcome from Peotone IL. DD & I went to your guild's show earlier this year. Many impressive quilts. You all put a lot of work into it.

    We try. Going to have our next one in 2013. All new committee, lots of new ideas, should be lots of fun. Does Peotone have a guild? If not, do you belong to one? I know Kankakee has a big guild. Friend of mine belongs to it. I'll tell the guild your comments on the last show. Thanks.

    No, Peotone doesn't have a guild & we don't belong to one. DD (kuseta) & I have "our own little guild " :D . I work such crazy hours & she's so involved with scouts & kids activities that finding time is difficult. We help each other out at times; actually she helps me a lot more than I help her. :D

    Sometimes those are the best guilds. What quilt shop do you favor? I loved Just Between Friends. That was a great shop. I still miss it. Any shop with batiks is ok with me.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome. What part of FL? My sister and her husband were in Lorida last year and had been up around Kissimmee (sp). Enjoyed Queen Anne's Lace in Sebring when we were down there last year.
