    Newbie in New Mexico. I am so desperately busy with kids and long work hours and home repairs but I feel a little more sane when I can do a little quilting in the evening, even just a little hand piecing before I fall asleep.

    I am working on a Jinny Beyer moonglow quilt right now, paper piecing and hand sewing, at least the first few blocks. It is a very painstaking business and I can't decide whether I am enjoying the piecing enough to make it worth all of the extra painstaking effort and time.

    I suspect that I won't feel that with this quilt until I have most of the top together and I can see the dramatic color patterns.

    When I can get at it, I am also piecing a pile of traditional blocks from the Three Sisters Chocolat fabric line that came out a few years back. I fell in love with that fabric and splurged on a pile of it, and I have put together enough blocks to make almost two full sampler quilts. I really want to get these done but want to finish them on the machine.

    I take a few minutes every day to find something about quilting from a blog or web page, so I am looking forward to reading the posts here. It is such an addiction!

    Welcome from south central Kentucky!

    I know exactly what you mean about having time..... browsing the QB inspires me to make the time (typically in spurts) to enjoy something just for me.

    Enjoy!
