    Hi everyone, I'm Regina from Hattiesburg Mississippi and I've ben quilting with a long arm machine for about 6 years. I love it and 2 years ago
    bought a machine of my very own. My favorite thing to do is applique. I'm looking for someone to swap patterns. I have lots of Sunbonnet Sues, chickens, paper dolls and stuff in general. Just ask I may have it.
    I have two shelves on my big bookcase full of notebooks that have patterns in them.
    I get up early in the mornings before work so I can quilt. This morning I quilted 3/4 of the quilt. My friend and I cut 5 1/2" blocks, sew theminto rows of 13 then 21 rows long and we call them our "giveaway quilts". We give them to people that are homeless for whatever reason.

    Welcome from Arkansas, sound like you are pretty busy. I think it is great that you are making quilts for the homeless.

    Hi Regina,

    Welcome from Kansas. I love Applique as well, my next quilt for my bed, is going to be a combination of techniques. Applique, punch needle, etc. I made a Sunbonnet Sue for my daughter, over 20 years ago,she is now 25. She now wants me to make her something cool with black in it. I started teaching her how to make her first quilt this week. She is going to enter it in the county fair here in August. She and I both are so excited, she for making her first quilt, and me for her getting interested in quilting, my passion. I love it. Nice to have you in the group.
