    This is so great! I have only read a few threads and my head is spinning with what I have already learned. Think I will take notes and put in my binder!
    I have three quilts started. The first is a grandmother's fan that a friend and I began over twenty years ago. The top is hand pieced and nearly finished (Only embroidery left.) It is done in shades of peach and white. I am looking forward to finishing it. Friend has been gone for many years. It has good memories.

    Welcome from Florida. This site will inspire you to finish your quilt. I have found some blocks my dear mom had done when she was alive and I want to do a quilt from them soon.

    Thanks everyone. I am excited! I will try to work on posting a pic! Just learning to be a little "techy."
    cakebaker,I know you will enjoy that quilt and the memories it will bring. What kind of blocks are they?
    I have some blocks my grandmother did when I was an infant for me. They are Mother Goose. It even has the pink alternating material cut out and ready to put together. I hope to do those when I get done. May have one of my granddaughters help. She has been wanting to learn to quilt.

    I am finding several projects that I have done with others and others have begun over the years that need finishing. Have beautiful log cabin blocks in shades of navy that I helped my Mom learn to piece. She did not finish the quilt. But either I or my granddaughter can.
