Default Hello from Cold MN!

Hi! I'm momof3inmn. I live in MN where it's about 10 degrees below 0 right now! I've been quilting for about 20 years. I'm more of a "non-traditional" quilter, but not completely out there! I do a lot of my own patterns. Working on getting some of them to print.
I have 3 kids at home, a hubby and a dog. I work full time but bust butt in the evenings and on weekends quilting! I purchased a long arm machine a little over a year ago and am having fun using it. Sometimes it can still be a little intimidating!
I say I hate applique, but I tend to make a lot of quilts with applique! I kind of young'ish...so I struggle finding anyone close to my age with a passion for quilting. But I love connecting with all quilters, young and old!

Welcome from western NY and happy quilting

before you speak T.H.I.N.K. T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Welcome! I grew up in upstate NY and it's cold there too, although not as cold as Minnesota maybe but tons of snow!

Welcome from Tennessee. I don't think quilters have ages. We just have passion for cutting fabric into pieces and sewing them back together. If you could find a guild in your area they may have younger members you can connect with.

Welcome from Maryland where the temperature can't make up its mind. Sweaters one day, a T-shirt the next. I don't envy your climate at all. But it inspires many a quilt, I'm sure!

Yay for "youngish" quilters, too. I am probably younger than most here, but I'm a brand new grandmother of twins, so you might think I'm not so young~ but I take every possible opportunity to mention my little lambs! LOL

Welcome from down south of the border (Iowa) where it's just as cold right now...and worse next week...

Many of us started just like you...a houseful of kids, a job, and a passion for sewing. Keep it up. Our local guild was so excited when a young mom joined our group last month. Your age group brings a new dimension and enthusiasm that spills over to us.
