    Hi to all you quilters. I'm new to these message boards. It seems like you are an interesting and active community.

    I've been quilting for a looooooong time -- 40 years. Our home is filled with quilts and quilted table runners. Our daughter has quilts on every bed in her home as well. And I still have so many WIPs, UFOs, ideas, and quilts on the to-do list in my head.
    I'm trying to carve out more time every day to work on some of my own projects.

    I'm a longarm quilter, and I love my work and my clients. I am lucky to be doing something that I enjoy so much, and I also get to meet wonderful people and help them finish their beautiful projects. I get to see a lot of the latest fabrics, patterns, and kits.


    I'm looking forward to getting to know you and seeing your quilts. I love a quilt show, even when it's virtual.

    These are a few of my quilts.

    Thanks, Mama. It's all 19th century reproduction fabrics and I quilted 5" Baptist fans all over it.

    I love antique quilts, and here in Pennsylvania we see a lot of that cheddar in antique quilts. I used it as the "neutral" in my quilt, so there's only medium and dark values and that bright chrome orange cheddar. It practically glows in the dark.

    Hello from a fellow Pennsylvanian.

    Love your quilts.

    What kind of long arm do you have?

    Can you tell me of some quilt shops in the Bucks County?

    Happy quilting!

    Hi Nettie- I have an A-1 Elite 23" longarm. It takes up a whole room and a ehole lot of time too-- I spend most of my days with it.

    I am blessed to be within 15 miles of 7 different shops. And my stash runneth over!

    Shops local to me are The Quilting Circle in Bensalem PA, Granny's Sewing Den in Glenside PA, Country Quiltworks in Montgomeryville PA, Byrne Fabrics and SewSmart in Doylestown PA. Also across the river in NJ, but still within a 30-minute drive are Pennington Quiltworks in Pennington NJ and Olde City Quilts in Burlington NJ.

    I go to Hatboro to babysit my granddaughters two days a week! I used to live in Horsham - near the Naval Air Station!
