    Hello from Los Angeles!

    Hi! I'm Kendall, a Los Angeles native and modern quilter.

    I learned to sew when I was quite young and always sort of dabbled, made my own clothes for a while, but really quilting is my thing. I'd been sewing on a brother se400, but I burnt out the feed motor (of course I did...), so now I'm working on my grandmother's 1956 Singer 900k while I try to save up for a machine better suited for quilting (looking at the Brother Innovis NQ1300).

    I recently joined a guild and I've been trying to make myself more a part of the fantastic online quilt community, and generally take quilting more seriously.

    The thing I most like about sewing is that quilt tops are like these giant fabric puzzles! I'm especially fond of foundation paper piecing.

    I can't wait to meet you all!

    Welcome from Oklahoma! You will enjoy being on the board. I have learned many new things from these Ladies and Gents. I spend time on the main thread, pictures, monthly blocks , and of course the swaps. Welcome aboard....

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Enjoy! Plenty of inspiration, help, and encouragement to be found here.
