    Hello for North Georgia

    This is me. I am having a time learning how to use this site. But anyway, Hey! I have been quilting for about 10+ years. I hate to waste fabric so I save pieces that many folks might toss. I have made quilts from patterns and some from just imagination. This is one made from small scraps that I refused to throw out. I call it a "Waste Not, Want Not" quilt. I have a garden in the Summer and quilt after gardening is finished for the: season. But I always seem to be quilting in between the tomatoes and green beans. I live in North West Georgia. I sew on a Bernina 440QE and free motion quit on a Tin Lizzie. I have recently started to try templates, which is challenging. Here is one of my Waste Not quilts.

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

    Welcome! That quilt is beautiful! I lived in Athens while my husband was in school. Spring was so beautiful there!

    Welcome from Oregon. Good use of scraps. I haven't put together a completely scrappy quilt yet. It is on my list

    I am also in NW Georgia. And I love scrappy quilts and save some pretty small pieces too. I collect a few vintage machines but sew mainly on my Pfaff 2030, even quilting large quilts on it. Are you in a quilt guild? There are several in my area. Welcome!
