    Hello from Puerto Rico

    Hello, quilt world. I leapt into the quilting world after attending Houston 2016. There are no quilting resources or guilds where I live, so I rely on on-line resources and I took classes at the Fall Paducah show. My main interest is art quilts.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

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

    Frogrock....welcome from Rochester, NY. You are lucky you live in an age of utube and ebooks for quilting instructions. There are so many online reources to choose from to help you in your quilting adventure. I like to shop for fabric in person, to touch it and see it with my other fabrics but have been known to order hard to find fabrics on line.
    Life is Good!!!

    Welcome from the middle of the US - actually 5 hours away from Paducah where my youngest daughter lives. We go to the April Quilt show there when we can. If you do art quilts, then you love the quilt show. My DH says most of them are pictures painted with fabric. - LOL

    Welcome from Maine. Lots of good information here and great people willing to help, and we like pictures too of your projects when finished.

    I like art quilts too but often do something along traditional for gifts for people to use.

    Wanted to add the great thing about art quilts is it is all about experimentation.

    Welcome aboard! Isn't the internet a wonderful thing to connect us all.

    I mostly do "contemporary adaptations of traditional patterns" but grats to you with Art Quilts. There's room for all of us here and we love to see pictures!

    Hi. I'm vacationing in Puerto Rico right now. Just telling my husband I couldn't move here because there are no guilds. Kudos to you for forging ahead.

    I like art quilts too and that is what I do for me but I tend to get in projects to comfort others and make many free form quilts as well.
