    Hello! I'm a newbie here too! =0) Nice to 'meet' you, congrats on making the dean's list, wow! I would love to go back to school someday, as soon as my daughter finishes college I may do just that, never too old to learn something new. I too have a little Cheewaawaa, her name is Sophie. Also a Pom & Maltese mix boy, Kip - and two kittys Splash and Willy. My hubs owns and chefs a German restaurant, I'm not German, pure North Carolinian! I just joined the Doll Quilt Swap group, I like doing swaps and dolly quilts are small enough to finish on time, come on over and join in! Bye!

    I'm new also, & working on, what may be, my last quilt. I lived in Hawaii for almost 2 yrs & returned to CA a yr ago. I started a Hawaiian quilt while I was still living in Maui, wondering if I would ever get very far with it. Appliqueing the pattern on was probably the hardest thing to do, although preparing & enlarging the pattern was not easy. I took an applique class at the local quilt/fabric shop while I was there & completed a pillow. Finally I'm into the quilting & trying to keep it like the original style of Hawaiian quilts, which are only 2 colors, representing a shadow, dark on light, & echo quilting all over. It's for a full size bed, but to the floor, so I don't if I'll ever be able to complete it. I hope so, eventually, one of these years. I came on to find out if anybody had ever dyed a white, whole cloth quilt, or how it worked out.
