Hello everyone. I am new to the Message Board today. I am a 55 year old RN and have started quilting just a year ago. My grandmother hand quilted and I always said that I wanted to quilt like her when I got older. Well now is my time to shine. I have just purchased a long arm quilting machine and frame and am waiting for it to arrive. I will be very busy in the next few months learning how to machine quilt on it. I love to sew and every new project gets me very excited and when started it is hard to stop. I am still working full time and teaching new nurses as well. I hope to make machine quilting my retirement fun. I look forward to talking with all of you and learning some new things about quilting as i go. Happy to be here.
