    Glad 2 B here!!

    first of all, thank you to all of the wonderful people on this board who share their love of quilting.. for someone like me to admire, learn, and be inspired. I am glad to be here.

    i've recently come back to quilting in anticipation of my first grandchild. my first foray into quilting was a 9 patch red and white pillow. my teacher admonished against using any tools except needle, thread, and scissors because "it's not real quilting" unless it is done this way... I was happy when I completed my pillow, but felt no joy in learning. This was in 1979. I'm glad much has changed since that lesson.

    secondly, i am happy quilters blog and use YouTube!!

    looking forward to being a contributing member...

    Welcome to the Board, I am from Co. and most definitely quilt by machine, although I do embroider quilts by hand so I guess I use both. Have fun.

    Hello and welcome from the UK. Thank goodness there are lots of ways for us newbies to achieve something now. But I am always on the lookout for the quilt police!
