    Good Day from Australia

    Hi, I am new to quilting and having some time off work has inspired me to have a go! I found The Curious Quilter this year, and was inspired by her charm swap - so I have been taken up with 2" fabric ever since. It was so exciting to get all the charms. I made a quillow a few years ago and loved it. I sorted my mother's house after her passing, & when I got to the the fabrics I was quite emotional (all those scraps from my dresses when I was growing up were there!) My mother was quite a cotton fan, so I inherited lots of really good quality cotton fabric! So I need to make a memory quilt at some time. I also enjoy candlewicking but am yet to complete a project so I have ufo's. I enjoy the journey of whatever craft I am doing.

    My friend, djmat, suggested that I come over here to meet all you lovely people so here I am.

    Happy Quilting

    Howdy, dear friend. So glad you've introduced yourself. Welcome to the Board. We are going to have so much fun here. The folks here are sweet & so smart, they will help us learn faster & keep us from wasting fabric!
    Hey, June 5th is the last day to sign up for a 2.5" charm swap here on QB. I've signed up for 30 sets now I need to get cutting. If you are interested go to the Member Swap Thread & look for June 2.5 swap. Off to find my rotary cutter. Hugs to you & yours!

    Welcome from the Adirondack Mountains of northern NY state in the US. I think you will enjoy it here. I'm pretty new myself and have found everyone extremely helpful, even with nonquilting questions.

    Welcome from Texas! If you want an easy way to cut the 2 1/2", I have cut many, many from my scraps with my Accu-quilt Go. I use my 2 1/2" strip die and 5" die more than any. You have some great memories to inspire you! Have fun.
