    Smile hello from outside the box

    Good morning to my new community! i look forward to having someone who knows what i'm talking about again. It's been a long time since i've "binded" with another quilter.
    I have quilted since i was 15 (+/- 30 yrs). it wasn't cool then, but my grandmother was an invalid and it gave us time alone together. I didn't even know there were "rules". she gave me a needle and some old shirts. I hacked it up and rearranged things til she said it was beautiful.
    Since then, i've made hundreds of "scrap quilts". i've never sold a single one (but hopefully someday). It just happens that by the time i get to the binding, someone comes to mind who really needs a hug.
    I have a vintage machine and a fancy machine and a voyager longarm. I like to play with my toys and dig in the dirt. Who's with me?

    Welcome from the mountains of CA.
    The rules don't matter unless you are trying for prizes. The only rule for quilts to comfort other is that they must be made with love!
