    Hi,

    Good to be here. My mom taught me to quilt when I was two or three. Now I'm about to be 34 and with two small kids, I dream about quilting (and having the space for a real work area) more than I get to do it. But I love to read about it and talk about it.

    Latest project I started is from City Quilts by Cheri House--City Lot. It's a surprise to thank one of my best friends for 25 years of friendship! (We met in third grade.) Lots of unfinished projects, though--two nine patch quilts, a Jack's Chain in Aunt Gracies (and I've forgotten the triangle trick...); batik applique wall-hanging; a double nine patch and a log cabin, from the same "intro to quilting" class 14 yrs ago--seriously, who has beginning quilters start three projects in four weeks!

    Looking forward to the big NW Quiltfest in Tacoma in a few weeks!

    Welcome from New York! I hope you find time to quilt. I remember those years when I didn't have five minutes for myself. Enjoy your little ones!

    Welcome from North Central Washington! I and a group of Quilters from the Wenatchee area will be at APWQ in Tacoma on Friday 26 hope to arrive about 10:00 I will be wearing a red hat and black skirt,carrying a purple shopping bag with an Attic Window Logo on it (I may not be stylish but I will be comfy!). If you see me, stop and say HI. I'll be the wide one that looks lost! LOL Hope we get to meet!
