    Hello from Beautiful BC

    I made my first quilt in the 80's from a Quilt in a Day pattern I bought from Canadian Living Magazine. It was an Around the World tied quilt. It still looks good, but of course the colours are really dated. 10 years ago I made a few rag quilts.

    I am almost finished my first quilt top using precuts.

    I work full time, have three kids, one who has left the nest the other two are teens, and a dh who has 3 businesses. Not much time left for me and my projects, but I find a few minutes here and there to sew.

    I have been sewing clothes since 1985.

    I am lucky to have a Janome 11000, serger, coverpro and a few more basic sewing machines.

    My garment fabric stash is huge, but other than one tote of quilting flannels for rag quilts, I do not yet have a quilt fabric stash.

    I am very lucky to have a very good friend who is an excellent quilter when I need help. The local quit gild meets when I work, so I cannot attend it.

    Hello from a fellow Canadian living on beautiful Long Island. I used to live in Victoria, BC. You will have fun here. The board is great. Enjoy!
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise
