    Lightbulb Hello from Holland

    Hi my name is Jennifer
    I started quilting/patchwork 3 years ago, when my son was born. I couldn't find any nice boys stuff, so I learned to make it myself

    My quilting English isn't that good yet, but I try to write it good ;-)

    At this moment I'm trying paper piecing/foundation piecing, which is a lot of fun!!

    if there are questions please ask them.....

    Welkom! Where from Holland are you? There are a lot of Dutch people on the list including ones living in other countries. I also like paper piecing and was in a swap not long ago. Maybe when there is another swap you'd like to participate.

    Here is the link to the swap that was finnished. You can get an idea of some of the blocks that were in it. ronda has done several paper piecing swaps.

    Welcome from Minnesota. Holland is one of the places I dream of going to on vacation. Grandmother was from there.

    Welcome to the board. Is quilting a popular hobby where you live? Do you have any real life quilting buddies? (I don't, which makes the board very important to me)

    Welcome from Beautiful Arizona. I love the Netherlands and lived there for 6 wonderful years. I lived in Maastrict, Stein and Uden. I love the Dutch people and the beautiful landscapes in your country. Hope to hear a lot from you in the future.
