    Hi everyone,

    I am new to quilting and your group. I have been english paper piecing my UFO (attached.) This is my first quilt.... many have asked me why I picked such a detailed pattern. Silly me, 'cuz I thought is was pretty.

    I'm happy to be a part of your group. I know I can glean alot from all of you experienced quilters.

    Until next time . . . .

    Vicky

    P.S. Yes it is cold here on the Gulf . . . in the twenties at night..... forties during the day.

    Welcome! My first quilt was a flower garden and I have scrappy ones too. I like to do the whole thing by hand!

    Welcome from on the road, getting ready to leave the snowy city of Detroit (UGH). Know why everyone else is going somewhere else, for sure. I am also working on a hexagon paper piecing right now with 3" hexagons. Your's look a bit smaller than that. Yes, it's quite an endeavor, but you should see the first quilt I did. We learn from experience, and seems to me you are doing a great job. If you love your choices and love what you are doing, that's 90% of the project. Post the pic when you finish it.

    I live on the Gulf Coast in Alabama also. Today it's not quite as nippy as the last couple of nights but wait till next week....we're going into the teens at night.

    Check into quilt guilds in the area. There's one in Gulf Shores, one in Mobile (meets next Tuesday) and one in Pensacola (not too far away).

    And don't know if you know about A&E Pharmacy in Pensacola but they have a great quilt store/fabric store.
