Default Hello from South Dakota

Greetings from the Black Hills. I'm new to this forum but have been quilting for almost 20 years. Recently I completed a quilt top that replicates one made by my great grandmother circa 1932, it's a version of a drunkard's path. Like her, I pieced it all by hand and will hand quilt it but I haven't pieced the backing yet. With warmer days hopefully just around the corner there won't be much quilting done. I look forward to finding inspiration from fellow quilters on this forum.

Welcome from Texas... You've picked a great board to join for help, fun & encouragement. I would love to see your great grandmother's quilt & your replica of it. What a wonderful thing you are doing by continuing the quilting down through the generations.

Here are pictures of both quilts. It was fun to connect, so to speak, with my grandmother but after having hand sewn 260 curved pieces, I was thankful that portion was done. Grandma's quilt is the blue, and white one, sorry it is sideways

Welcome from a fellow South Dakotan. Maybe you can get a few days of quilting in with this next snow storm. Sure not happy about 12" - 20" of snow forecast this late in the season!

Macybaby, I share your sentiment, I am not looking forward to this storm either.

Welcome from the beautiful mountains of western NC. We're getting rain - but no snow thank goodness.
