    Hello from The Netherlands

    Hi,

    My name is Megan and I am 24 years old. Six years ago I started quilting. My first quilt was trip around the world. I made the quilt on a singer sewing machine I inherit it from my grandmother. Nowadays I have a Bernina sewing machine and I love it. The singer machine couldnt sew more than two fabrics together so I had to change. I have learned a lot from the videos from quilt in a day from Eleanor Burns. My mother makes also quilts and it is a fun to share such a hobby as quilting. We have different interest in quilt making and colors. I like modern quilts and a lot of bright colors. She likes greens and pinks. More English style. My mother is making a Dear Jane right now. We visit every now and then a quilt show and sometimes we make together a quilt. I call it duoquilts or duoprojects.

    Forgive me for my English. It is not my native language.

    Megan

    Hello from New York. Your quilts all look lovely. Welcome!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from the MidWest (USA).

    It's nice that you share a hobby with your mother. And your quilts are beautiful.

    There are members from all over the world so don't worry about your English. We can understand you perfectly and if someone writes something you don't understand, just ask someone to explain it. I can only speak and write English and I greatly admire anyone who can speak and write in other languages. My oldest speaks several languages. I think he gets that from my father who could speak several languages which were English, Cherokee, Spanish and German.

    Warmest of welcomes from Massachusetts. Your quilts are beautiful and I love that you are sharing time with your Mother, quilting. I have only been quilting since I retired 6 years ago, but love it. I have found tremendous support here on this board. Feel free to ask questions and share your work. Your English is very understandable. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Megan! Welcome from OHIO, USA! Your English is great and so are your quilts. This is a great place to learn and share info.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Welcome from California. It is great you are quilting with your mom. I started quilting with my sister. It is nice to be able to bounce ideas off of someone else.
    I am going to be in Nijmegen and Arnhem in Sept, 2014. Are you close to that area? My husband and I love visiting the Netherlands.

    Welcome to this great board from Louisiana, USA. Love your quilts. And your English is fine. Might be better than my English. And I sure don't speak any Dutch. Can't wait to see more of your lovely quilts.

    Your quilts are great! I am a lot older than you and have lost the sewing partner that I had with my Mother. Treasure every moment you have with your Mother. Sounds like you are lucky to have an experience very similar to the one I enjoyed for many years!! Welcome from a Texas farm!!

    Hello and welcome from an Iowa (USA) girl! My son in law is from eastern Holland. I just saw your hexagon art quilt--just lovely what you have done with fabric choices. If you don't understand something, just ask. We are all open to learning new things.

    Welcome from the Adirondack Mtns of northern NY state. I think you will enjoy it here. I love your quilts. They are all beautiful. It is nice you have a hobby you can share with your mother. Your English, by the way, is fantastic! I can only speak English so I always admire those that can speak a second language, especially when they speak or write it as well as you do.
