    One of my sisters is a member of the Quiltingboard. Her name is Joan and her board name is jabear617.
    She is such a sweetheart and peace maker. She finds a way to make you talk about the things you like, what you did with your day, etc. She would call me.
    Joan: Whatcha doin.
    Dorothy: Readying the Quiltingboard.
    Joan: What is the Quiltingboard.
    Dorothy: A large group of quilters showing pictures of their quilts, talking about quilts and things they have made, teaching us stuff. I learn so much.
    Joan: But sister, you already know how to sew.
    Dorothy: No, I am learning now. I was just 'doing it' before and I didn't know what I was doing.
    Joan: Oh.
    Dorothy: Want to see some of my post? This is the link.
    Joan: Okay.
    Joan became a member in September! :thumbup:
    She thought she did not know how to quilt. She knows more than she remembers that she knew.
    I adopted her on the Quiltingboard. She has read posts, searched, watched videos and tutorials. She bought a sewing machine, got the suggested tools and look what she made me to show me how much she has learned in such a short time.
    This lap quilt is so precious to me. I was emotional when it arrived. My grandson was on the phone with Joan as I opened it. He said "Aunt Joan, Grandma really likes her present. She is crying. She likes it very much".
    Thank you sweet sister. I keep it by my machine so I can enjoy it while I sew. It is perfect to put my sewing odds and ends on. Keep up the good work and enjoy the moment.

    I think the bird in an Oreole. Right?

    Some of the fabric came from our Mother's stash. Some is Joan's new stuff!

    I put my brick a brack on it as I sew. I just love it. It makes me smile. It makes me feel good.

    What a beautiful quilt & story, no one appreciates the love that goes into a quilt better than a fellow quilter.

    Your Sister Joan sure learns fast, she did a great job on it. Good for both of you.
