    I had been googling different quilting topics and it kept connecting me to this board. I had to join.

    I've been quilting for a few years. I have given all but one quilting away, the one I kept is on my lap right now...but I will have to put it away soon since it is a Christmas quilt.

    All five of my daughters quilt and just last night I bought two 9 1/2 poles for my quilt frame so I can handquilt my oldest daughter's wedding quilt. Just need to get the husband to drill the holes in the ends for the hardware.

    I have three sons as well but they aren't into quilting (yet?)

    I'm attaching the pic of the wedding quilt. It is a pattern I found on line that is fashioned after Jane Austen's quilt. The center medallion is a buffalo because that is my daughter's new last name.

    Thanks for the welcome. I can't believe how many people have join just today!

    The quilt took about three weeks to make including embroidery. I'll let you know how long the hand quilting will take when it is done. It will have a prairie point border which will be a first for me.

    The wedding was in September and the quilt top was done before then but all the wedding prep followed by the holidays delayed the quilting.
