    Talking Hello from Evanston, IL. New mom, new quilter :)

    Hi all!
    I recently moved to Illinois from Canada, and being a new mom I'm at home a lot and thought I'd get more serious about quilting!
    I have made 3 baby quilts in the past (strip, 9-patch and most recently an 8-point star quilt), and am ready to take on bigger projects!
    I just realized this section is here so I'm a little late in introducing myself, but - HELLO!!!
    - ​Before there was Prozac, there was quilting. -

    Welcome from another Illinoisian. You'll enjoy it here.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Welcome from Louisiana! Hubby and I are heading for Chicago this afternoon! I'm a bit jealous of anyone living in or near Chicago, because that's the home of Vogue Fabrics! They have a HUGE store in Evanston. Have you found it yet?
