    Hello from Iowa !

    Good day! My name is Patty and I would like to introduce myself to all you fellow quilters. I live in central Iowa where my husband and I farm. My passion, though, is quilting. Right now I am handstitching a little crib quilt for our expected grandchild who is due in December.....gotta start early you know, when you stitch by hand. This is my first quilt using a Grace Quilting Frame, which has been a real experience in itself! I am looking forward to meeting all of you and learning about your projects.

    Welcome! My daughter is a Hawkeye, graduated 2006. We loved Iowa, so beautiful. You will enjoy reading this board, lots of tips and links, and so many people post pictures of their fabulous quilts.

    Good morning from northwest Iowa, where the corn is tasseled and the days are full of sunshine. What pattern are you using for the baby quilt? The baby quilt I made for our first child started me on a long running hobby, and that child is now sixty, as of tomorrow.

    Hi and welcome to the board from central Iowa (smile). You will enjoy it here.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
