Default Good Morning!

Hello! I am happy to join this group. I have made a couple quilts and admit I am an amatuer. Recently went through my sewing closet and am determined to finish 4 UFOs. Most from 2009! Yikes. Then I will allow myself some new purchases. Trying to be productive while in quarentine. I live in Nebraska and am recently retired.

Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan! It sounds like you are on your way to becoming the quilter you have always wanted to become. Work on those UFO's to start with and enjoy them during this time when we can't get out to much. the explosion of fun will come soon enough. When the quilting bug hits it gets your full attention. Quilting is a great retirement activity. I have been retired now for 30 yrs (June 1st) I really started quilting shortly there after and only taken a short time off one time. I have a wonderful DH who is my biggest advocate and I can do anything I want and get any gadgets or tools I need Again welcome to the QB and I hope to see a lot of you here. Welcome aboard.

Welcome to the board and back to the world of quilting.

Don't be too hard on yourself, 2009 is still this century -- I think my oldest unfinished top is from last century or close to it! But good for you for going back to them, this is a good time for stuff like that. I'm finding myself scattered and difficult to start making new projects right now but able to buckle down and take care of some unfinished business like making backs or bindings.

Welcome from Texas! It's so good to have new members on the board. I think you will like it here & hopefully we can learn from you & you can learn from us. We love pictures so would love to see some of those UFOs.

Welcome to the QB and happy quilting

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