    hello from florida

    Hi:-) i started quilting a year ago when i made a quilt for my boyfriend who was going to Alaska for summer. Im really not sure what made me decide to start since i had never even sewn before, i also sewed a couple bags but im not sure if those were before or after i started the quilt. I am not addicted to it and i finished another commissioned piece am working on another. I also love sewing purses. None of the quilts ive done or am working on have specific patterns they are just pictures i sketched up:-) i cant wait to read everyones posts and learn some new interesting techniques to improve my work :-)

    Welcome from SC Texas. Happy you joined us. I like to use a pattern only when I see one I would love to make, for me it is much more fun to make art quilts with my scraps and my own designs. You will learn a lot here as there are so many talented members here.

    Welcome from Vermont. You must be very creative to sew from sketches you make up. Would love to see you post them here.
