    I just wanted to introduce myself and to pay my compliments to all of you extremely talented quilters!! I have been drooling over your gorgeous quilts and longing to have just a fraction of your skill! I'm not so creative, but I enjoy looking at the beautiful quilts of others. I am so often inspired by them. My quilts are simple ones that I make for various reasons -- mostly for school auctions and school staff members. The one I did for this year was done with the assistance of my 8th grade students. Maybe I will post a picture of it and explain the design. I recently finished a little quilt (Curious George) for my fiance's, (Don) youngest grandson. It was for his 3rd birthday. He loved it! I just finished machine quilting a simple lap quilt for Don's half-sister who lives in Indiana. I just have to put on the binding. Next I need to machine quilt a lap quilt for his sister-in-law who lives in the same house as the half-sister. Confused yet??!! I have a quilt top waiting to be marked so it can be quilted, too. It's for my brother's 50th birthday. The pattern is Storm at Sea. When I finish it, I will post a photo. It actually turned out quite well. He has a charter fishing company called Reel Scream that "sails" the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair. I really think he is going to love it.

    Gee...sorry I got so long-winded!! Again, thanks to all the talented quilters! You keep me motivated and inspired! I also appreciate all the advice you have been giving on the posts! Quilters are such a giving group of people! I know I'm going to love getting to know all of you and will surely be learning so-o-o-o-o very much!!

    Hi Patty,
    We are definitely neighbors. I'm in northwest Detroit, Rosedale Park area. Are you familiar with any of the quilt guilds around? I'm part of one that meets in Livonia - GLAAQN. I'm possibly looking for another one to join.
