    Hi, I am a 74 year old quilter that has only been quilting since 2000 and, boy, do the young friends I have produce beautiful quilts in a short amount of time. But I love what I am doing. Have been sewing probably 50 years. My daughter bugged me to start quilting and had to take me to a quilting class before I got hooked. Moved to northern Arkansas in 2005 and have many quilting "buddies" here. Here is a picture of the "chicken" quilt I finished in December 2009, started in January 2006. I made several quilts in the intervening years also. I won a blue ribbon on the quilt at the county fair.
    I am also attaching a picture of our recent snow storm. Very unusual for us. Last year it was ice!
    I look forward to getting to know all of you. This is the first message board I have ever belong to. Hope I do it right.

    Hi and welcome from the greater Los Angeles area. I love that chicken quilt! No wonder you got a ribbon for it. Did you do the quilting?

    How do I get a picture posted on the left side of the board? Can't seem to find instructions for doing that.

    Thanks and I'm glad we don't have this much of the snow stuff every year. Hope this isn't going to be a trend.
