    Hello from Illinois

    I joined the board a couple of years ago, and never actually posted and then lost the link. Found it again and here I am. I've been quilting most of my life, learned from my mother, but since the internet I have learned so much more. Since July I've been trying to finish up my UFO's and have completed at least 10 UFO's that have been laying around and have a couple more ready to quilt - and about a dozen in various other stages of non-completion. Besides quilting I love photography and reading and would love to travel more. My friend and I spend time going on quilt shop hops and I am also a member of the Mississippi Valley Quilter's Guild.

    Hello from further east along I80. The summer before last we had a "Meet & Greet" of a bunch of Illinois folks and quite a few came from out your way. The meet was in Princeton.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
