    Do I see kittens on your quilt, HuntAnnette?
    Being Newb, I'm learning the ways of this Board.
    Is there a way to get a better look at them?
    As in click and enlarge?

She instilled upon me, always always must press open and make sure they match. So had to re-learn lots and am still learning more all the time.
    Just moved from N.Ontario to Sask. Welcome you are going to love this board.
    I learned about taking out seams, thanks to her. If it didn't match she made us re-do it til it was right. At the time, HATED it, though appreciate it all the more now, as often get compliments on my precision work.

    Off and on over the years I have sewn and pieced quilts. It's become more of a passion and obsession the last few years. Just never enough time to do all the ideas I have. Thus UFOs abound!! And the stash builds :)

    Which makes me wonder why I had not found you lovelies til now??

    PS ... any other Canadians here?

    MilliVanilliSask ... I'm guessing hails from Sask?




    You're all terrific!

    Good News ... my new Stained Glass is now assembled. Tomorrow when my brain is a little clearer, I'll do the borders, being that I have to scrimp and save every inch to make it work!

    Hi from another Ontarioan - is that really what we are called? I'm from the town of Simcoe, near the shore of Lake Erie. Are any other quilters from this Board planning a trip to Quilt Ontario (CQA event) in London near the end of May? Our guild has a bus trip planned for May 26 - can't wait to see all the wonderful quilts, and of course all the Vendors!

    Hi
    Welcome
    I am from Toronto and quilt too much (Is that possible?????)

    There is a great deal of good info, sites to visit and pictures of gorgeous quilts. I start most days here while I sip my green tea.

    Gloria in Toronto
