    Greetings from Illinois!!

    I ran across this site about a month ago and decided to join! I began quilting four years ago when my daughter went away to college. I wanted to send her with something comforting from home, so I decided to make a rag quilt which included material with her school colors and squares cut from old blue jeans that belonged to each of us (her mom, dad and brother). I have since made one twin sized tshirt quilt for my son, king sized tshirt quilts for each of my brothers, another quilt for my daughter, a baby quilt for her best friend, and some taggie blankets. Right now I'm working on a tshirt quilt for my son's best friend who has been diagnosed with cancer with hopes that he finds comfort and the strength to fight his disease. It truly is a rewarding hobby and helps me find peace and comfort from dealing with life's challenges. I look forward to building friendships with those of you enjoying the same hobby!!

    Welcome.....when I seen your screen name I figured you were from this area since we have so many coal mines here.
    I am just across the river from St. Louis.

    Welcome to the board neighbor!!

    Coal City I'm guessing from your name and rough description. If that's the case, I'm just on the other side of I55 from you in Braceville. I think there is another person here from Coal City as well, and a few from Morris.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
