    New to quilting so am enjoying all the input from all of you. I love to fillet crochet, sew, machine embroidery and have recently gotten interested in quilting. I have done the fleece throws with the grand kids names embroidered, ragged quilts and now want to do something special for my granddaughter entering the Naval Academy in June. I want her to be able to wrap herself in my love when she needs a hug. I am thinking I want to make her a new one every year. Now to decide what pattern to use for her "Plebe year quilt? I am looking at a simple Bargello design.
    I get so addicted to my hobbies, I can't believe I am starting another addiction. How do you spell ADHD?

    Hi and Welcome! I live in Haynesville (Houston County) and would love to have a quilting buddy. There is a good quilting guild in Perry too if you are interested.

    How nice to receive a welcomes from everyone. Even Ireland especially on St. Patrick's Day! It really warms my heart as my mom was from Dublin. I have visited my relatives there a few times and enjoying getting reacquainted with them again through FB. Will look forward to seeing everyones posts.

    It is such a small world. We lived in Bitburg from 1976 to 80. Have very fond memories of our time there and stay intouch with very dear friends from there.

    I am in WR. When does that guild meet? Do you attend?
    It would be nice to connect.
    The new Hancocks & Hobbly Lobby are less than a mile from my front door. Am I lucky or what?

    Congratulations on soon welcoming your grandchild.
    One of God's greatest gifts to us mothers. I have 6 grandchildren and can't imagine life without them. As I said earlier, one of my granddaughters will be entering the Naval Academy in June and I will miss her terribly. Our whole faimly is going up for her induction. It will be so bitter sweet, so proud, but sad leaving her.

    Welcome from Macon. There is a guild that meets in south Macon {right off the interstate} on the 2nd and 4th Tues evenings at 7:00 if either of you are interested. Also having a sew-in Sat. for National Quilting Day. I am going to try to go some of the day, but have to have my pink pancakes first!
