    My name is Michelle and I'm sorta new to quilting. Rather than start small and work my way to larger projects I went big first haha. I started a queen size quilt (top is done) and got no farther than that. Has been sitting for 5 years waiting to be finished. Not sure if I will finish that on my own or find an experienced person to pay and do it for me so it isn't a disaster.
    That's as far as I got with any quilting honestly. I have several ideas I want to accomplish and I am looking forward to learning block patterns, finishing, and other fun techniques.

    Here is a picture of my quilt top: http://www.blueaffliction.com/I/quilt4.JPG

    Hello there...I think the blues in your quilt are bee-u-tee-ful....finish it so you don't have a UFO before you even begin...LOL.

    We moved to Wyoming 3 years ago from Kingman, Az...lived there for 20+ years....good to get out of the heat!!!

    I live in Riverton. I like to think of it as the bannana belt of Wyoming...very little wind, lots of critters and very nice people!
    Lots of quilters too!
    What part of Az do you live? Moved here from Kingman 3 years ago.
