    Hello Quilting Friends:

    Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I am a new quilter and loving it! I never even sewed as a child so this has been an adventure for me. I took my first quilt class a year and a half ago at my local quilt shop and I've been learning every since.

    I have taken several classes through our quilt shop (log cabin, underground railroad, jewel box). My biggest challenge is finishing something! I just love playing with the fabric colors and patterns!! :)

    I'm a bit obsessive and I want everything to be "perfect" which causes me to rip out a lot. My teacher says unless you can see a mistake from 10 feet away on a galloping horse, it's not a problem. I wish I could adopt that idea but I still want every point to look perfect. LOL!

    I live in North Carolina with my husband and two fur babies, a cat and a dog.

    I look forward to learning from you all on the quilting adventure.

    Welcome from Illinois. My mother was a perfectionist too, I'm still wondering why she kept me! Her hand work was absolutely beautiful. I consider myself picky not perfect.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.

    I am in Greensboro. We actually have 2 nice quilt shops in town so I'm very lucky to be a new quilter with access to two great shops.
