    Amanda from NM

    Hello,
    As my name says from NM. I am new to quilting (since 2016) when I was gifted a new sewing machine (from my parents) for my dream of quilting. I have made 9 quilts so am still very new since the count does not go over my ten fingers. I joined the Quilting Board Forum recently because I found myself 'stalking' to see what others were doing or writing about. I am ready to join in the conversation, learn from others, and encourage them in their endeavors. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and ideas and believing that this grandmother of 7 babies and preschoolers can learn a new skill. My desire is to piece and quilt my own quilts so maybe someday I'll get a HQ Sweet 16 as my next progression. FMQ with a sit down or long arm, hmmm which one? For now learning on my domestic machine.

    I joined LQS for 'Gypsy Wife" by Jen Kingman. I think this may be a little too challenging for me. I'm jumping in and hoping the water is fine. God bless you

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome Amanda. If you are in the Albuquerque area, send me a private message. I can hook you up with a local Project Linus group and a Quilts of Valor group. Being with some of these ladies can provide lots of information and hints.

    Hello Amanda, good to have you join us. This is a great place to be with many wonderful people, my problem is that it gives me more ideas than I have time to do. Not a bad problem to have.

    Welcome from Texas... Can't wait to see the progress you make on your Gypsy Wife quilt. It's good to take on more than you think you can do. Without challenges, we would never learn or progress. You will find lots of help & encouragement here.
