    My name is Carol and I live south of Boston and have only been quilting for a little over a year. I have made embroideded quilt tops and hand quilted them but just started doing pieced quilts. I love it. Hubby bought me a Baby Lock machine and I am always found sitting at it. I am grammie to 7. They range in age from 15 1/2 down to 4 month old twins. Would love to find quilters from my area. I have set up an entire room in my house just for my quilting.

    Embroidered quilt top and hand qulted the entire quilt.

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks. Good to meet a fellow quilter from Massachusetts. I live south of Boston in a small town called North Easton. Have you been quilting long? I just love it.

    Another quilting "orphan" from MA--I live in Jefferson, a little town outside of Worcester. Maybe we should try to get together some time? We could do our own "shop hop" with lunch or a mini-quilting retreat?

    Just dreaming, I guess. But it's good to know there are other quilters in MA!

    Hi Carol, I'm also south of Boston, in Norwell. Welcome to the board. Your quilts are gorgeous. Hmm, one year eh? It must be in your blood because they are really neat.

    Hi Charleen, I am in North Easton. We are not far from each other at all. How long have you been quilting? I am now trying to visit the local quilt shops to develop my stash. Have you been to RYCO in Rhode Island yet? I just went there a couple of weeks ago.....WONDERFUL.

    Hello and welcome from California! Your quilts are beautiful! I love Boston - I love Massachusetts! I use to work for a company that has their headquarters in MA. I saw Boston in every season. My co-workers use to tease me and say that they would trade places with me - they could not believe how much I loved it there.

    I'm in Norwell, been quilting off and on for a long time but just started in earnest when I had the chance to build my stash in a job I had. Never been to RYCO (what's it's full name?)
    I'd love to go, after all, stash building is the name of the game! :thumbup:

    You are right, there is a little of everything here for weather. I even like the snow! Missed the change of seasons when we lived in South Africa.

    Welcome from Maine, grew up in Lowell, Mass as did my whole family. I had to comment because you are from Mass, and your name is Carol, my grandmother's name is Carole, and she lived in Mass before she moved to NH. Nice quilts, and nice to meet you!!
