    Delurking

    Hello, everyone! I've been led here via google searches multiple times over the years, so I figured I'd better join properly. I'm 32, and I've been quilting on and off for 13 years. My dream is to someday try a longarm machine, but for now, I'll continue squiggling on my little Brother.

    I enjoy experimenting in all subgenres of quilting, but lately, my favorite thing to make has been good ol' patchwork. I love the timeless look, and how quickly they come together. A few things I'm working on are a full-size EPP hexagon scrap quilt, a brick quilt for my dog, and some oversized delectable mountain blocks for a donation quilt. I also occasionally dye fabric, though it's hard to do when living in an apartment!

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

    Welcome to the QB from the beautiful Northern Neck of Virginia I often discover that all things quilting on the internet lead me right back to the Quilting Board website too! Glad you joined and hope you enjoy the exchange.

    Thanks, everyone!

    ptquilts: Yes, it's a section from a throw-sized applique quilt I made about five years ago. I posted a few pictures of it in my album.
