    I am relatively new to quilting and new to this site. I have only been quilting since August 2009.

    A friend was looking for something to do and so was I - quilting became that project. I do enjoy quilting but have had to slow down a bit due to back issues.

    I am always looking for and at new patterns for my next inspiring moment. Currently working a new quilt for our bed and can't wait to make all the coodinating pieces (curtains, bedskirt and table tops).

    Hi Connie:

    Glad to see that you made it. For others, Connie also works at Northern Illinois University but in a different office than I do. I've seen her quilts and they are very pretty. I noticed that you didn't mention that your avatar pix is the pix of your first quilt you made. :)
