    Hi, I am from Marshalltown Iowa. I am newly retired and live in the country on an acreage for the past 35 years. We have 4 children and 9 grandchildren. I have been sewing one thing or another since my Aunt, Grandma, and Mom taught me to do embrodery when I was 6. Now I do mostly quilting and have to have a project going all of the time, sometimes more than one. Happy Quilting

    Hi Ann, Just joined this morning as you know and just got your massage. How are you liking Germany? I was there in 1964 - 1966. Long time ago, in Nurnberg and worked at the Palace of Justice. What is your favorite quilt block?

    Hi Murphy, Nice to meet you. I was just in Ames last week to the Quilt shop, where else. I like going there instead of JoAnns, because the fabric I got there was not up to par. What is your favorite block? lily

    Hi Carrie, Living in the country has helped keep me sane. No city problems with the kids growing up. They had chores and homework to keep them busy and most all their friends had the same problem. I love quilting adn have one on that I am working on all the time. What is your favorite block? lily
