Hey Quilters, I’m new to the Quilting Board…first time blog … I’ll try not to mess up. I’m looking for a Quilting Retreats in the south.( Alabama, Miss or Louisiana) Would like the retreat to have quilting classes maybe a lazy setting with leisure time to meet other quilters and enjoy the local sites.

Any help would be appreciated….Thanks k
I still can't get my pictures to upload, despite getting the enhanced menu visible. Don't think it is too large/too many pixels for the program. I use Windows XP--any suggestions?
My last blog post said I was better at quilting than technology--today I'm not feeling either! Doing a simple "attic window" type quilt for SIL for belated Christmas gift, using Asian inspired fabric. I just seemed to have the "duhs?" when it came to cutting accurately--especially

I would like something not too busy.
OK--took me a couple days to figure out the reason I wasn't adding pictures is I didn't have the "enhanced" toolbar--thanks to Peckish and others for giving step-by-step instructins under search for "posting pictures"!

Now on to finish a modified log cabin lapquilt for brother and start/finish an Asian fabric lapquilt for my SIL so they hopefully get them for Christmas before New Year's! Seems like mail between us takes

I'm pretty excited. It hasn't arrived yet, but I just purchased a Janome Horizon MC 15000!! It is supposed to do everything you want--embroidery, quilting machine, wireless with an iPad, etc. Does anyone have one? How steep is the learning curve? If anybody has tips, techniques, or suggestions I would love to hear them.
