    Newbie from the Frozen Tundra of Illinois

    Hi there. I'm Teresa G from northern Illinois. New to this forum but not quite new to quilting. I started quilting about 14 years ago when I moved from California to Illinois. Took a few breaks here and there due to life but got back into it more steadily early last year. I joined a BOM from a LQS in Lockport and have been working on a few other BOMs since then.

    Almost 2 weeks ago, I challenged a friend of mine to working on the Dear Jane Quilt. I started working on one years ago, but with several house moves, have misplaced my book and the few blocks I had started. My friend accepted the challenge and we both ordered new books and the software. Waiting for both to come so I can have some fun :-) It was through a posting from someone on the Dear Jane mailing list that I found this board.

    Years ago, I belonged to a couple different quilting groups on Yahoo, both of which are now defunct :-(

    Other things about me - I am in my early 40s (that's hard to say from time to time), have 3 grown kids ages 23, 21, & 18. In addition to quilting, I like to do counted cross stitch, cook, spend time outdoors, dabble in photography, enjoy micro/craft beers (both drinking and brewing) and am an avid Criminal Minds & Star Trek fan.

    Welcome from Illinois ... I'm about 20 miles south of I80/I55 interchange.

    I know the quilt shop in Lockport ... lovely place.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Welcome from OHIO! This board is great. Very active quilters here and I don't think I've seen a question go unanswered. I have quilted for years, but I've learned lots spending time on here.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Welcome from the SHO-ME state - Missouri. Round Lake sounds familiar - is it around Chicago? If so, I think that I spent the summer there when I was a girl.
