    I'm in Hillsboro, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. I'm relatively new to quilting, but I come from a family of quilters (Amish ancestry), and so I feel as if I have quilting in my blood. Now that I've started, I don't want to do anything else. If I'm not quilting, I'm thinking about quilting! I don't know how to say this without sounding completely corny, but it seems to fill me with love for the person who is to receive the quilt that I'm working on. What a great stress buster. I'm enjoying reading your posts and I'm learning so much already. This seems like a friendly and welcoming community. Thank you.

    Welcome from Tucson AZ. Don't think you're corny at all. I think the thoughtfulness and love that goes into a quilt is exactly what we need more of :).

    My husband and I love Tucson. We travel there during the winter when we can. Great city. We lived in Phoenix from 1975-1978 while he attended school.

    Welcome from another Oregonian!! I don't think you are corny either. We pour a lot of ourselves into our projects.

    We moved back here just over 4 yrs ago, was here in 83-86 and loved it. So after I retired we packed up our belongings and moved out here permanently. Have never looked back and love our lifestyle here :).

    Welcome from Colorado. I understand the love for quilting! I'm the same way. Also, I am filled with love when I quilt, I am continually thinking how this quilt will be treasured, cared for, and appreciated by the recipient. You must have some beautiful heirlooms in your family, can't wait to see some of your work!

    A big wave from Ireland. I wish I had quilting in my history, but no such luck.

    Hi from Beaverton, neighbor! I just joined last week myself. Glad to have you here too. Perhaps we can get together sometime with 2Doods (Alice) from Banks.

    I have learned so much here in my past few months. I even joined the BOM although I haven't posted my blocks yet... You should really enjoy this board too.

    Welcome from Northern California!

    Hey! Good idea! I don't work outside the home, so I have lots of time.
